Re: RB751U-2Hn frequent (daily) reboots

This has always seemed to be the problem. My original tickets are all still outstanding, but I've stopped trying to use RB751 for SOHO. The 951 was an improvement, in that it wouldn't crash/reboot, but I've since moved away to an RB2011 in front of a cluster of Ubiquiti UniFi. I love RouterOS, but I...

Petar, The RB751U-2Hn has not had one single stable firmware release since the hardware went on sale.

Re: RB751U-2Hn frequent (daily) reboots

Close, but not quite. If you have watchdog enabled, flash will go to 100% on the first SNMP query of the device, and stay there until the traffic ceases. This will cause watchdog to reboot the router, and management sessions to become unresponsive (making harvesting supouts difficult/impossible). Sa...
