Re: upgrade from RB951G-2HnD

I have all 5 ports used:
port1 ISP1
port2 ISP2
port3 PC1
port4 PC2
port5 PC3

so no point in changing ports. Just updated the firmware from 3.12 to 6.42.2, maybe that solves my problem for now.
In hap ac2 it says 4 core 716 MHz cpu (IPQ-4018), but is it faster than 1 core 600MHz in RB951G-2HnD?

upgrade from RB951G-2HnD

hello, I've been using RB951G-2HnD in dual wan failover since 2014 when I set it up myself. It's been working ok, just 1 problem: port1 is dropping to 10mbps mode from 100mbps. I have to manually disable/enable it once a week, that's annoying. Now I'm considering to upgrade it to some newer model, a...

Re: Combining 4 pppoe clients

Why don't you try modifying this code: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=81799#p409010 It doubles my downloading speed when using 2 ISP, but on web it only works like 1 ISP. It also adds failover when 1 ISP fails. It loads my router CPU 80%+, but I have 50+70 mbps, for 2 mbps connection...

Re: 2 PPPoE PCC + failover, RouterOS 6.9

Did everything as written above and when I do a speedtest only 1 connection passes traffic, 2nd has 0/0. And it's random, sometimes 1st ISP loads 50 mbps, sometimes 2nd ISP with 70 mbps: http://www.speedtest.net/result/3304436205.png http://www.speedtest.net/result/3304444180.png What also is strang...

Re: simple 2 WAN failover

If you have setup mangle correctly
Never heard of it.
I just wanted a router for failoever. I was choosing between tp link470+ and some used linksys with tomato firmware from ebay, but they both were 100mbps, so I went for this.

Re: simple 2 WAN failover

I thought I could use the router without a firewall. I was wrong. Some noobs try to bruteforce my admin password: http://imageshack.com/a/img842/2361/zr00.png So I need a simple firewall to protect the router. I make an address list for LAN: 192.168.88.0/24 Then on filter rules tab I add a rule: Cha...

What model should I buy that satisfies all these requirements? Also I've never used linux, and I hope ...
