Re: Mikrotik Wireless equipment at a frequency of 6-6.2 GHz

Mikrotik will top out at 6.1GHz using superchannel on some 5GHz cards. Not sure how legal it would be to use this though.

Re: MUM video is now LIVE!

Ok, I must know what was the hardware used to achieve the 100+ Mbs TCP full duplex Wireless N link shown during the introduction for ROS v5. Had to at least been a board with GigE nics. What kind of processor? Standard routerboard? What kind of wireless card?

I switch it back and everything goes back to normal. I think this might be due to it not supporting wds in this mode. Does anyone know a qu...

Re: Starting 11n ptmp

I wish there was a cheap antenna for MIMO which I could use with RB411 and R52N/R52Hn for clients. Maybe the results would be better then.

For 5Ghz there is this from arc wireless that isn't too bad on cost.http://www.streakwave.com/Itemdesc.asp? ... 88&eq=&Tp=

Re: 802.11n

with 802.11n you are apparently much better off using an mpls/vpls tunnel as opposed to wds. I am curious what kind of results you get as you are using rb 600s. I am wondering if my own bandwidth limitations I am seeing is not because of the fact that I am using 411AH boards.

Re: 802.11n

So I have 2 RB411AH w/r52Hn connected on the bench. Using the the bandwidth test from each device I can achieve 45-50 Mbit/s fdx tcp, and about 90-100 Mbit/s fdx udp. When I put a pc on each and and run jperf i can only achieve roughly 30 Mbit/s Hdx tcp. Anyone else seeing these sort of things?

It fluctuates a bit between 160mb-243mb but I’m completely happy with it and impressed. The voice applications are also working 100% with ...
