Using QRT2s because of tree foliage, haven't tried 5GHz yet in those conditions. 5GHz is more prone to obstacles than 2.4GHz, it is already lucky that your link works behind foliage, usually it is a big problem for wireles...

Re: cAP ac: Alternative brackets

Bracket is fine for me but why no designed holes for cables coming from side of AP rather then from behind it?
Ditto, design is horrible is certain situations. Not much room, especially if you use both LAN1 and LAN2.

Re: 2 x SXTG 2HnD point to point - need advice for better link

Cybertod, thanks a lot for your help ! I was about to give up but then I raised one station 1 meter higher and got a very good link (24 hours now without drop). I'll experiment with height (and with settings) a bit more to get even better signal but it's great as is it now. http://www.dodaj.rs/t/31/...

Croatia is the same as in every other EU country.

But for the sake of testing, please tell me what setting to use to get highest transmit power possible.

Thank you once more

Re: Hotspot implementation with 2 APs - total beginner

Glad that you got it working. They are really nice little routers. 1.) I'd have to see your hotspot configuration to say for sure, but where did you define the limit? You'll want to have defined it under 'user profile'. If that's where you have it, I would try assigning it to the radius profile (I'...

Re: Hotspot implementation with 2 APs - total beginner

I thank you for wide and detailed answer. If it's really an access point and not a router, then it's a layer 2 device. Yes the MikroTik will be able to hand out DHCP over an access point. If you actually have routers, some of them will have an AP mode, or you can "trick" it into acting like an AP by...

Re: Hotspot implementation with 2 APs - total beginner

Mangement IPs shouldn't be assigned via DHCP. But if I set DHCP off on APs, how and will RB750 assign IP addresses to clients connected on certain AP ? I mean, is it possible for RB to assign dynamic IP if there's AP between him and client ? I apologize if I ask stupid question but I'm totally unce...
