Re: New IP cloud is coming.

It would be nice to have the option NOT to restore or backup MAC-addresses on HW-interfaces (Ethernet and Wireless).
Restoring MAC-addresses of logical interfaces like bridges, EoIP, VPLS and the like is useful though.

Re: Why is MikroTik's new product—S+RJ10 10GBASE-T module so cheap?

3.Is it possible to use CAT.5E cable to link with 10GBASE-T? A: No. The standard bandwidth of CAT.5E is 100MHz, and CAT.5E is designed to transmit signals below 90M. 10 Gigabit signal transmission requires a CAT.6A patch cable. 10GBase-T will work even with Cat5e as long as the distances are short....

Re: balance-tlb for Wireless Links

Maybe pulling one VLAN trough the slower link and two VLANs through the faster link.
Then make a 3x bonding out of all three VLANs.
That would make up for a 2:1 load balancing, which roughly meets the 50/32 ratio.

PWR-Line devices don't work this way.

They work more like WiFi using OFDM. -> Many small QAM carriers.

HomeplugAV200 uses OFDM carriers between 2 and 32 MHz.
Newer HomeplugAV standards extend to 85 MHz or more.
