CRS328-24P-4S+RM and 54VDC

How one would go about supplying this switch from Telco PSU? 100-240VAC PSU that's built in supplies 48VDC and 24VDC. Will modules inside, named "PSE-24", accept 48-57VDC? Is there some place on built-in PSU's board that one can supply 57VDC with, which would then be converted to 24VDC by the PSU? I...

So, are we there yet? People tend to deploy expensive "proprietary" solutions only because of roaming support. We have few deployments that really need this, and there are problems with forceful disconnects from signal strength based access list entries.

That's some idea, and it should work. Thanks for the pointer. If nothing else comes up, I'll try naging Mikrotik for some kind of tool for this, or maybe work out some RFC for such protocol. It should be somewhat useful for people with networks with thousands+ of nodes.

Crafting raw packets with scripting?

I'd like to send a raw UDP packet every second towards some host in the network with router statistics (cpu, mem, selected interfaces up/down + tx/rx) in condensed form (raw hex bytes) to fit as much data as possible into one packet. Is this currently possible with scripting?

Hi guys!

Could you please confirm for me which routerboard models are 100% 802.3af compatible - can be detected and powered by 802.3af switch either in mode A (over data pairs) or mode B (over unused pairs)? After searching through forums I found inconsistent answers :(

It seems that after disabling and enabling bridge, vlans are brought into some strange state between disabled and running - there is no 'X' indicator, and there is no 'R' indicator - doing enable on each vlan brings them back to life.
