Re: How to enable system health ?

Is it really even working on your other machine? What I mean is, if it is an x86 (PC) where are the +12 and +5 volt rails? what is it monitoring in the voltage? Also, what the heck is reading at -2 degrees C, is this board outside in the snow? Sorry, I know this really doesn't help, but it seems str...

Re: How to enable system health ?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you need a routerboard for this function to work. Maybe also your chipset is not supported.

Re: Home Wifi Build

First of all, is cost an issue? A base 493 with case, 2x wireless cards, antenna's and connectors, will cost around $265 USD. Do you need/want Gigabit ethernet (add about $50 for 493G)? I don't believe you can combine 2x wireless cards for better speed, (at least not for consumer devices, I.E. Lapto...

Re: How many DHCP leases will RB450G handle?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong...

If i'm not mistaken, as long as the DHCP server does not lose power, the lease is still active, and the client MAC Address does not change, when the client reconnects it will get the same/previous IP Address.

Hope this helps.

The quides at infodotnet seem to be from 2007 and use version 2.9.43 of RouterOS. I suspect this as an issue, since there have been improvements to RouterOS since then.

Re: RouterOS v4.7 released

it's quite easy to get mentioned brand routers for that price. depends on what you need.

Exactly, ~$100 routers with the support that goes on here, Well worth the occasional bug... :)

Trial and error is going to get you most of the way. Search the forums and wiki for each topic/feature you want to setup. If you need it fast, you probably need to hire a consultant. What version of RouterOS are you trying to setup?

Re: RB250GS - Use Ideas

Intriguing idea, I kinda thought it might work as a sort-of port expander for a 750G or such. I do wish it was a RB280GS, 8 ports if I understand naming convention right. As far as it running off of 12v, I don't see why not if the specs say 9-28v, 12v is somewhere in the middle.

Unfortunatly, it seems (to me) you just have to try the card to see if it works. I am using a 2GB PNY card in my 450G that cost me $2.50 USD (got in a pack of 2 for $5 USD) and it works fine. Xymox posted their 2GB PNY didn't work although.
