Re: IMPROVEMENTS IN MIKROTIK ROUTERS MUST HAVE 2018/19

Some providers are already giving you 10G broadband for $50 per month (including 250+ TV channels and free domestic calls).

So 7G as the top consumer router shifted from being too much to not enough.

And it still needs at least two 10G ports.

The chipset has been discontinued, linux dropped support for it, and the new RB4011 pulls down full BGP feeds faster than a CCR1072. It's time for something new in the 1036/1072 range.
Tile is still on Mellanox's product pages and it can be reinstated in Linux if someone wants to support it.

Re: RB4011 - Poll - ONE thing you'd change

You would be able to route at more than 1G with another 10G port.

Making a bridge between the 2 switches on the 2011 would severely impact routing performance.

Maybe "PC"-sized would be an interesting idea after all, to put an M4300 next to it.

The 226 is a low performance router. It is not similar to the 2011.

Re: CCR1016-12G-1S+

I understand that if Mikrotik wanted it, they could just put TILE-Gx16 in CCR1036-8G-2S+ .

Of course, they would still need to remap processes.

The problem is that you're not giving up a little stability with Current, some releases are completely broken. Current is not a release level today, contrary to its aim. It is a beta program. The AIM of Bugfix is absolute stability, that's why the introduction of new features is delayed. The point i...

There is supposed to be a release for people who need new features and another for people who need absolute stability.

This is not that different. Support for multiple alpha branches is not a requirement. Neither is immediate implementation of automatic updates.

Currently Bugfix is just released without any community vetting.

Current is not safe.

RC is currently just Alpha.

Re: v6.35rc [release candidate] is released, new wireless package!

Big thanks to MikroTIK to transfer to 3 stage release (RC, Current, bugfix) it is sufficient for all my needs.
It is much, much better than older approach.
But it seems it is still not good enough for some people who can't just stay on Bugfix.
