RB750Gr3 boot loop

It seems that this router was supplied with too little flash, it bricked itself after updating since it would not apply configs and it would still stay in a boot loop even after using netinstall. It still boot loops after using netinstall with the firmwares. Even my old RB450G has more storage space...

Re: Cloud Core Router/Switch

if you need 10Gb/s NAT i would recommend the CCR1016 at least or CCR1036, if its just your internal network doing layer 2 or layer 3 routing with few to no rules on the switch chip, the CRS can handle it.
