Re: How to prevent WDS loop (WDS static)

ROS 5 have an issue with bridge it seems. WDS in bridge is unusable for me, where 4.17 works 100%
Hopefully 5.2 will fix this. 5.1 is sooo 5 minutes ago, we're waiting in anticipation for 5.2 so we can upgrade hotspots with WDS to ROS5

depends if you want it below or above. :-)
Do a spectral scan and see if higher or lower is clearer. (If you have a card that supports it.)

Or do a scan if you can't do the spectral thing.

You can think of it as of improved nstreme.
Does that mean NV2 will also have packet aggregation into frames (framing policy terminology?) as NStreme does?

For PTP link with 2XR52HN cards & dual pol dish antennas, which will be better throughput: NStreme or NV2?

RB133C and ROS 4

I've upgraded one of about 40 RB133C's still at clients and it is rebooting when under load, e.g. running torch, loading traffic logs via http and then logging into the API. Even just torch from winbox cause it to reboot. I've uninstalled all packages but advanced, dhcp, routerboard, system, securit...

Re: Is it true that legends PCC working well than NTH?

I've been running Nth for about 2 years now over at first 4 lines and now over 6. Just have to force https (port 443, 8443 traffic) to go over 1 WAN then all is fine. I also have a dst-address list for a few websites that do not use https but need persistent IPs to work. That means that all banking ...

LoadBal over mixed ADSL type and MTU issues

I'm having problems with load balance since upgrade to ver 4, I downgraded but lost config (no backups!) so I had to recreate it, but still having the same problem: Sometimes webpages would not open, just gives 'cannot display...' or just a white screen in IE, sometimes webpage download but it seems...

Re: Is it true that legends PCC working well than NTH?

Not really, as I do not get one 'pipe', just every connection that the download manager makes goes through a different line.

Re: Is it true that legends PCC working well than NTH?

But will you still get max speed?
e.g. with my Nth balancing so far, I have 6 lines balanced. If I download a file with a download manager, I get combined speed of all lines, but with PCC you will only get max speed of the line you are routed through to that dst-address?
Right?
