Re: 20 000 hotspot users

Hi, I have around 2000 Routerboards running hotspots, from 411's to CCR and x86 servers. Working out what device/s you need to think of other important factors such as bandwidth, firewall rules etc. For example you might have a 951U with 200 hotspot users with a WAN bandwidth 20Mb/s and no firewall ...

Re: VLAN Trunk Port

By "true trunk" I mean it will forward all tagged frames, some people describe tag ports as trunk ports. So basically if you set up 2 VLANs 20,10 on a switch port and turn trunking off, this is a tagged port and member of VLAN 10 and 20. A trunk port is a port that will forward any frame that confor...

Re: Hotspot Scale...

Hi,

I wouldn't recommend 50k users on one hotspot.

You would be better having multiple servers then adding the users to the same RADIUS group. If you need to roam between hotspots use MAC auth.

I would say 20k MAX hotspot...

50k maybe possible but may not be wise

Re: RB751G-2HnD switch ports down and up

Hi,

Try turning auto-negotiate off and then set the link speeds manually, if the manual link speeds you have set still fail then try a different speed + duplex.

I have seen this a few times with other vendors...
