Re: MKT router with FXS

Personally I'm very against CPE's with built in customer side wireless. CPE's is in many cases only a managed VLAN-aware L2 switch, and for good reasons.

But if Mikrotik decides to make some more CPE-ish models, then FXS and PoE would be useful.

I think many would avoid running VoIP trough tunneling (because it will ad a new layer of jitter and delay). Re-transmisson should always be handled in the application layer, since the application is the only one that knows what to be re-sent.

Re: wAP AC + PoE injector + HP 1820-8G

Yes, no problems at all with a Netgear GS105E and a RB260GS. Using a 5M UTP Cat6. Sorry, forgot to mention that I've tested a couple of the other ports, and the issue remains. The ports works fine with other devices and the switches mentioned above. RouterOS 6.38.1 / FW 3.33. Ethernet1 is set to Aut...

wAP AC + PoE injector + HP 1820-8G

When connecting a wAP AC with Mikrotik Gigabit PoE injector (fed with 24V) to a HP 1820-8G switch, it goes in to constant linkflap (sometimes settles on 10M/FD with massive packet loss). It was no issues with a older Netgear GS105 Gigabit switch or a Mikrotik GS260G. Using 5 meters of CAT6 cable. Wh...

Re: The purpose of MikroTik firmware...

For my understanding it's the bootloader (think BIOS+GRUB, uboot, redboot etc.) It might even contain some board-specific configuration (GPIO, CPU-freq, Memory addresses etc).

Re: RB922UAGS-5HPacD, ether1 broken?

I never used the jumper/pads, did it in CLI (/system reset-configuration) But for what I understand, you simply should short the connection between the pads som something conductive. Anyways.. My problem got solved. The antenna was to close to the Ethernet-chip, causing it to reset. When a moved the...

Re: 100Mbps VPN

I use two hAP with IPSec tunnel. Since it lacks crypto-offload, it maxes out about ~30Mbps I suggest IPSec with some board with crypto-offload in hardware. OpenVPN support on RouterOS isn't that great (and IPSec is much better for permanent/static tunnels) If security is not a concern, you could use...

Re: 256-bit OpenVPN @ 200/200 mbps

OpenSSL is 100% CPU based and single threaded. In order to achieve what you want you will need a high-mhz CPU. X86 is really the only option. Not entirely true. OpenSSL can take advantage of kernel-module based crypto engines (/proc/crypto) Some ARM/MIPS hardware actually has crypto offload hardwar...

Re: 256-bit OpenVPN @ 200/200 mbps

400Mbps troughput is quite a lot. You will either need a beefy CPU or SSL/crypto-hardware.

Not use if any of the Mikrotik's have it.

Re: AR9287 problems and results

I found an AR9287 in a old laptop. My RB922UAGS with 6.33.3/wireless-cm2 detects it and lists it, but unable to use it.

AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (rev: 1)
Vendor ID 0x168c
Device ID 0x002e

Did your AR9287 work?

Re: Mikrotik 802.11ac and Macbook/Broadcom

Upgraded to OSX El Capitan 10.11.2

It's actually very good now! Getting stable 220-260Mbps now in AC/40Mhz/2S Seems like Apple has fixed some issues.

Mikrotik 802.11ac and Macbook/Broadcom

Hi, I'm using a RB922UAGS-5HPacD in a RF Elements StationBox for home wireless. Unfortunally it have never performed that great with one of our computers, a late-2014 Macbook Pro model. The speed is extremly varying and crippled. From 10Mbps to 110Mbps. It often starts in the 80-90's then drops to 1...

Re: RB922UAGS-5HPacD, ether1 broken?

Tested 'ethernet-default' and 'default' - Same problem. I did some tests against the RB912 with the bandwidth test. Inbound performance seems fine. Averaging on 500-600Mbps. But outbound performance test generates interface resets. Graph from RB912 board: http://files.msys.se/forum/mikrotik/rb912_gr...

RB922UAGS-5HPacD, ether1 broken?

Hi, I decided to upgrade a existing office accesspoint with a RB912 board to AC performance, so I got a RB922-board. After initial configuration I measured absolutley horrible performance, about 1-2Mbps with wireless. I tried all kind of settings and even at basic 11a mode it was terrible. Then I sa...

RB912 board - new/old revision?

Hi, I've bought a RB912UAG-2HPnD on Ebay. It came new and unused and in anti-static bag. But soon I realized that it differs somewhat. It does identify itself as 912UAG-2HPnD and has a valid license. I tried to find a picture of the same variant, but was unable to. http://files.msys.se/forum/mikroti...
