Re: Slow routing with a CCR1009

If the link is 1000/11 then I can assume that the ack send back in TCP connections will congest your link. Also remove all the queues and see if you still have any issues.

You will not have leaks if you have add the access to NAT interface only to the clients in the list, dont forget to add your routers ip to the WAN nat too. Its important that you also have this for WAN nat.

You should be at about -60 for signal strength, too high is just as bad as too low. I'm puzzled that you tried both chains with only one antenna, that would kill one chain at a time when you change, so chances are really high that you killed the card.

Re: Limit CPU usage

upload the main file routeros-mipsbe-5.11.npk, reboot. After reboot upgrade the firmware. If your using usermanager, hotspot or net time, then you need to upload them from the larger zip file too. I ususally do that after fw update.

Re: Limit CPU usage

What config do you have? If you have bridge also then check so that your not sending the bridge traffic through the FW unless you need to. I would guess that with wifi, bridge, bridge FW, FW you would max out at around 40mbit on that hardware. The 750G has really limited CPU power

Re: router recommendation

Kind of depends on what you expect to do with it, will you be using the FW? What connection do you have? The low end is the RB751U-2HnD thats a complete solution for you. On the other end, if your a techie and want hi-performance then and dont mind to spend a bit you can go with a RB800, a wifi card...

Re: 802.11n Slow

MB/s is megabyte per second, I think that 7.xMB/s, about 60-65mbit/s is way too low for one stream, and thats about 1/3 of consumer equipment on the market.

Mikrotik is now moving into the office space and home space with its line of routers with built-in wifi.

Re: I need to reach a NAS in another room at maximum speed

There is gigabit versions of powerline adapters, you should be able to get at close to 500mbit pure throughput even with old/bad power cables from that setup. Messing with wireless will do you no good at all.

The latest firmware for the RB800, is that 2.30? I get that both in 5.7 and 5.8, but I can see that there are newer firmwares released after that. When a firmware is released, is it generic or device specific?
