I have had 4 out of 10 doa. No more of those cards for me. I have never spent so much to have that many doa. Then one died within an hour of use. No overpowering. Every other card has worked fine in my routers, I just wanted a less noisy card. Oh well. I will stick with Ubis now.

What is the terminating device? Whatever it is, set a /30 for transport and then add routes so all the others /30 and /29 go to your Mikrotik or whatever. That gives you 12 ips to use out of the 16 since 4 are tied up in the transport. ex. Router internal ip xx.xx.xx.1/30 Mikrotik Wan ip xx.xx.xx.2/...
