Re: CCR1036 Power Supply

We've also had two or more CCR1036 power supply failures. The last one that failed has the green capacitors.

Has anyone found a source for a direct replacement power supply? Prefer for the replacement to drop in just as original power supply does.

MikroTik/RouterBoard needs to offer a multi-port GigE router with fast CPU and USB port to monitor APC UPS status.

We would have been buying the RB1100U if MikroTik had included a USB port.

Lastly, if you guys would add one or two SFP ports for fiber modules that would even be better!

Re: No USB Port Shown Under UPS Settings on RB-230

UPDATE:

I've gone ahead and renewed licenses and upgraded two more RB-230 boards to v2.9.51 and they are "seeing" the USB port and are able to communicate with the APC UPS.

I guess it's possible the first RB-230 has a bad USB port?

Something like this?: http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?edc=390883 Or this looks nice too: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?DEPA=0&description=33-106-216&ATT=Network+Interface+Ca&CMP=OTC-yah00TT I wonder if these cards are similar to the RB44 in that each port is recognized ...

What is the best GB Ethernet NIC?

I am considering building a MikroTik router to place at the edge of our network. We currently are using a Cisco 7204VXR with DS3 interfaces, but we will be adding a Protected Service GB Ethernet circuit. I'm envisioning a rack mount P4 platform with four or more Ethernet interfaces. Initially three ...

Hello Matthias, I've looked into the motherboard you suggest and think I found it here: http://store.yahoo.com/logicalplus/msi86neoinso.html $73 seems very reasonable, but the odd thing is they list it as a 5PCI, but clearly the picture shows 6PCI slots. Must be a typo... In the meantime I'm anxious...

John, Testy, testy this morning? Gheesh, I only said "respectfully disagree" and I apologize if you perceived my comments as a jab. Yes, I did ask several times what motherboards MikroTik had tested and were known to work. Finally I was given a make/model of a discontinued motherboard that as of tod...

Owen, I'm seeing the same thing with a ASUS P4G800-V motherboard. The MikroTik OS will only recognize three ports of each RB44 installed. I'd love to believe the problem lies with a faulty BOIS setting, but I respectfully disagree with John Tully that the problem is in the BIOS settings. I have trie...

Matthias, Very cool. Thanks for the feedback. Do you have 6 RB44's you can try as well? What is the model # of the motherboard you are testing with? I gave up on the AOpen ZX4C Max II motherboard...guess I'll make it a gaming machine or something. lol I have the Asus P4G800-V loaded with 2 RB44's an...

Matthias, Great! Look forward to seeing how the msi board works. Please keep me posted. When do you plan on testing the msi board? Sure would be nice if MikroTik would publish a list of known "good" motherboards. I'm sure their engineers could just skim over the specs of various motherboards and pro...

I've tried adjusting various BOIS settings until blue in the face! lol I've tried default motherboard settings and tried disabling everything including parallel ports, com ports, audio, USB and even the on board LAN interface. Everything except the bare necessities and get same results. I've tried s...

Yep, total of three different motherboards have been tested for this project. First was the ASUS P4G800-V. It only recognizes 3 out of the 4 ports on a RB44. Second was the DFI NB76-EC. It works perfectly and recognizes all 24 ports with 6 RB44's loaded. Problem is this board is no longer available ...

Anyone have 24 Ethernet Interfaces up and running?

Hello, I am looking for a motherboard capable of P4 2.8GHz or greater with six PCI slots. Currently I have tried the ASUS P4G800 and the AOpen AX4C Max II. The ASUS motherboard will recognize only three ports of a RB44. Insert one RB44 and MikroTik recognizes three interfaces. Insert two RB44 and Mi...
