Re: OS v5.0 Stable, ever?

here every rb450g takes about 3 ~ 5 minutes at most!
I'll keep that in mind next time. BTW this should be clearly specified in RouterOS upgrade documentation.

Thank you all, folks!

Re: OS v5.0 Stable, ever?

Just upgraded my RB433AH with combined package, it took about 3 minutes.
Three minutes after finished uploading the upgrade packages?

Re: OS v5.0 Stable, ever?

30 is not so much, remember that it's installing all the packages you uploaded. wait a minute. Thanks for the tip normis. I don't remember exactly how long I waited but it was about half a minute. How long is it safe to wait for a 680MHz model to reboot after its firmware got updated? Besides using...

Re: OS v5.0 Stable, ever?

@janisk: Just a question regarding upgrading 4.1x to v5.0 RC5. How long should we wait a router to reboot after uploading the routeros package? A few minutes ago with a brand new RB493G, I've uploaded the RC5 combined package (via Winbox files) and then ordered it to /system reboot . I waited almost...

Re: [RB750] no access: IP: 0.0.0.0

So, now it seems to boot. With Winbox I can see the MAC address but the IP is 0.0.0.0 and therefore I cannot connect.
Click with your mouse on the MAC address instead IP and Winbox will connect just fine.

Re: RB493G features and first impressions

Just got one of these babies but I haven't yet checked in detail the current consumption. It doesn't seem to exceed the specs, though (3-5W on idle - no cards). Something I liked is that it doesn't run as hot as other routerboards. Actually, it runs pretty cold (< 15 degrees C above environmental te...

Re: RB493G features and first impressions

I don't want to put a negative spin on this product. I still plan to use this at my WPOPs. The RB493G is relatively low cost and has the most Gigabit ethernet ports of any RouterBoard along with miniPCI slots for radios. I, too, don't actually consider this twin chip implementation as some serious ...

Re: RB493G features and first impressions

It's really too bad that these switch chips don't have a really high speed bus that allows you to gang them together.
I was wondering Tom if the two switch groups could be chained together. Not the best workaround but it might work for some.

Re: RB493G features and first impressions

Thank you for the info Tom.
Personally I do prefer using R52Hn because of the newer and supposedly improved chipset but one of my clients insists that 3x3 MIMO can improve the performance significantly. I don't agree but you know the old saying that the "customer is always right"... :)

And btw, not even your own routerboard.com store has them on sale (yet). ;) You can...

Re: NEW RB711

I'm very disappointed too! :(

Is it so difficult to bring something really useful like a 450G + R52Hn + L5 in a nice metal case? I'm pretty sure that's what most of us were expecting for. It would sell like hotcakes.
