Re: RB4011: wlan1 disabling itself

The SFP port doesn't seem to play a role - I tested a single one with SFP and couple with standard default config setup with Ethernet-1 WAN and they were crashing equally bad ;)

Re: v6.38 [current] is released!

What's the upgrade scenario for CAPsMAN controller and devices?

Currently CAP<->Controller communication is done on VLAN, so if I go and upgrade controller I will loose communication with CAPs. If I upgrade CAP it will no longer connect to controller.
Am I missing something?

Little differences between 2.4 and 5 are normal since according to the documentation, but in your case probably difference comes from country regulations.
Remember that 802.11ac is way more complicated (with BF, DFS) than 802.11n, so simple software analyzer may not be accurate.

Re: MTBF of RouterBOARD

From my knowledge MikroTik doesn't have such data (because no official tests are preformed to determine MTBF).
However from my observation you can expect around 4-5 years lifetime (for 24x7 scenario). In my opinion 3 years is a sensible rotation period due to technology evolution.
