Re: Large deployment suggestions for event

Good point. The number of visitors is not the same as the number of active users. Especially WiFi users. When the phone is in camera mode, or in the pocket - wifi is usually not connected. Most people look at the concert or take photos, not browse :)

Re: Which Router should i buy for a small web hosting company?

It will depend on the amount of traffic + amount of processing of that traffic. If you only need a firewall and not more than 100mbit of traffic, any MikroTik device will do.

MikroTik devices are not made in the USA, and we don't have any offices there, so not sure about any such bureau. Try to ask USA distributors about this. They should have experience.

The issue is not with the standard, it's with the chip. In this model, both 2GHz and 5GHz are run in the same wireless chip, which doesn't support such features as showing all the powers.

True, at maximum load, the CPU might make a difference. This will be visible for small packet traffic and firewall rules, where bandwidth nears port limit. The difference is around 10-20% it seems.

What else do you expect to see? It already says that ambient temperature can be up to +70C in your closet.
I suggest monitoring the closet temperature, not the chip temperature, but if you have no other sensors available,+60C is fine.

Re: 6.43.8 UPDATE ALERT READ BEFORE UPDATE

Using "country" means you want to folow regulatory domain restrictions.
Using Superchannel is exactly the opposite.

Why would you want both at the same time? "Country" setting was always meant to limit your frequencies and power, to follow country regulations (law).
