Re: Wireless issues with a CAPsMAN and two hap ac^2 setup

200 mbps in wireless is good enough. Don't trust the marketing which sells you rate speed as real speed. You can get 1 gbps rate in 3 chain 5 ghz environment, doesnt mean that you can get throughput like 100 Mb\sec. You wont get 500 mbit or even 300 mbit for sure from hap ac2. Especially if you have...

Re: hap ac3 - worse than hap lite?

Don't bother looking for a fix to your setup. hAP AC3 just sucks for some reason. Maybe they will fix it in a future RouterOS version. https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?p=827986#p823038 Exactly! But there won't be any fix until problem is massive and acknowledged. Meanwhile we have a beautif...

I guess it'll be like universal session. Because from time to time you need to manually configure some sets of typical settings and it would be nice not to navigate the same tabs over and over.

Re: v6.43.13 [long-term] is released!

Is everything okay there with winbox-router communication? When I open winbox session on previous RouterOS versions it takes like 1-2 seconds to establish session, now with 6.43.13 it happens instantly. It feels like there could be broken encryption or something. So I wonder if bug or feature.

Re: Slow VPN tunnels (SSL, PPTP, L2TP)

If you have a public IP on both devices, you can just set up an EoIP tunnel to make a layer 3 tunnel. The most bandwidth I have seen pushed over a VPN tunnel in mikrotik has been over EoIP. EoIP is layer 2 tunnel, also EoIP is GRE, so instead of using it in layer 3 you can use pure GRE tunneling. A...

This situation with IPSec tunnel does not happen! The PING response time does not change (or at least very little change) if the tunnel is busy or not. This is a common problem related to TCP meltdown. You shouldn't use TCP tunnels on a long distance nor many hops. Use L2TP or PPTP for it. We're  a...
