Re: 802.11n Slow

Hi All, I have been using an RB600A as a home (indoor) router, equipped with the R52n (AR922X Wireless Network Adapter (rev: 1) wireless card for several years now. When I bought the stuff, I spent a couple of days trying to find an acceptable settings. Then I ended up - like others - wiring up a "c...

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Well, the script works to some extent, but I do not think it sends the IP address to dyndns in the correct way, and it is dyndns itself which determines the IP... :global ddnsip [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface ] address ] seems to result in the IP address formatted like:...

Re: Looking for a failover script

Originally I thought of testing the availability of a series of hosts, and if X% of those fail on the link, while they still work via another gateway, that would trigger a failover. If one particular host is down on one particular interface, but not on another it would trigger a specific route to th...

Re: Looking for a failover script

Hi, thanks for the hint. I thought of something like: We choose one/several test hosts that we want to ping. We set up individual routes to these hosts in the IP routes table via all available ports/gateways. We periodically these internet hosts via the specific gateway/port. If there is no reply af...

Looking for a failover script

Hello All, I wonder if anyone has an adaptable/adoptable failover script or can help me write one. I am quite new to RouterOS, and have very limited knowledge. I have a CATV internet connection on ether2, a PPPoE ADSL link on ether3, and a second local router on the LAN port ether1, with 192.168.2.2...

Re: problems with a failover gateway configuration

I have found and tried the failover setup: /ip route add gateway=192.168.1.1 check-gateway=ping /ip route add gateway=192.168.2.1 distance=2 It is nice, and works fine. But. Is there any other way? This method only seems to help if the connection to the gateway is broken, but will not work if the ga...

Re: 802.11n

Hello, I have RB600A + R52N as home AP. If I switch the radio to 2.4 B/G mode, I can achieve actual cca. 18-20 Mbps down from speedtest.net. That is something typical with plain G. Even then, uplink is nearly just 3 Mbps on one of the laptops, while on another one it is 5. Strange. Is it a problem o...

Re: What do I need? What can I use it for?

UPDATE: I do not know what I did, but the AP started to work :-)

It is slow though... Interestingly, while I get the full 50/5 Mbps on wired link, I only get about 15 / 3 on WLAN... So it requires some more experimentation I think.

Re: What do I need? What can I use it for?

So yesterday I bought an RB600A + R52N, case, antennas, powersupply and got the unit assembled. The most difficult thing was finding a suitable RS232 cable :-) I now have ether2 as a WAN-port with DHCP-client, ether1 as LAN with DHCP server, and NAT between the two ports. I have upgraded the OS to 4...

Re: What do I need? What can I use it for?

Not sure if he meant noise on the link, but possibly I just misunderstood what he posted:-)

Anyway, does the RB600 require fans to be installed? I see that the brochure mentions fan control. Is it possible to run it without any cooling when run at normal room temperatures?

Re: What do I need? What can I use it for?

Dear hedele, Thanks for the hint. I still have not chosen a routerboard, I am currently hesitating over 3 models: 433UAH, 493AH and 600. All of these have features I like (USB / 9 ports / gigabit) , it would be great to see them built in one :) Browsing this forum I found people complaining about: -...

What do I need? What can I use it for?

Hello, I am thinking of building a device for home use, but foremost: for the fun of building a "system" :-) I currently have a CATV internet connection with 50/5 Mbps, upgradable up to 80/5. My current DualWAN SOHO router is a bottleneck as it cannot route more than cca. 25 Mbps from WAN to LAN, an...
