Re: Maximum speed between 2x SXTsq 5 ac

BTest is not a good way to test speed on a link, because it needs a LOT of CPU processing power to generate fake data to send.

Test needs to be:

PC --> SXT1 ~~~~ SXT2 --> PC2

Then do test from PC to PC2. I think you will see much higher "real life" speeds.

You can pay LMT to get real IP and consequently, ability to remote into your device. This is a paid service.

Without a real IP address, your only option is to have another router somewhere else, then do a VPN tunnel from your LMT router to the other router, and do remote to that one.

Re: Kids control can't be set to 24/7

Yes, that is true. The App was originally made to give smaller children certain hours for internet use, not for other purposes and not for using with always allow rules. We might have to re-think the mechanism, if this issue is troublesome for many users.

Look at the crazy amount of questions on this forum. DoH is really popular. A lot of regimes nowadays filter content. People started to use 8.8.8.8 as DNS, but that got blocked. So now people ask for DoH. This is what it's for basically. I will not get political. We just make what users ask for (som...

Antenna gain is a physical parameter of the antenna. Like my height is 183CM. I can't change it, so just in the same way - routers with built-in antenna can't change the gain. It is what it is. For detachable antenna RouterOS doesn't know the gain, so you read it from the datasheet and enter into th...

DoH can be used in countries where governments enforce filtering of news and such. This is why it's popular, I guess.

Re: v6.47 [stable] is released!

Antenna gain should not be changed, especially for devices with built-in antennas. What were you trying to achieve anyway?
If your signal is too weak, fix position or alignment. Playing with antenna gain is not the right way and can be illegal.
