Re: CHR: Does Fast Track work? [SOLVED]

Correct. CHR does not support it as FT is done in hardware and MT cannot guarantee every CHR will have the relevant hardware to do this.

Re: Best VPN for Mikrotik / RouterOS

Answer to that question may be here

The reality of it is that most/all PPTP and SSTP solutions will work. L2TP/IPSEC, some will and some won't and openVPN is a bit of a shambles as far as MT goes.

Is your question more whats the best VPN or is it, I've got a VPN so how do I route my traffic?

Re: Raw disk image(img) - inpossible to booting from flash

It's likely CHR doesn't have drivers for your hardware (disk) so it can't find root filesystem and fails to boot. Sadly there are no kernel messages so you don't really know what's happening.
Or it's designed to be run virtually and not on bare metal.

I kind of understand where you are coming from but that's not necessarily how it works.
By disabling the interface you are disabling the physical access on that side of the interface. Think of the IP sitting between the CPU and the interface you're assigning it to.

Roaming is done by the client. You can only try to encourage it.
Make sure you use the same encryption method and key and try to separate the wireless channels as far as you can. It can help to stick a minimum RSSI of around -75 on to discourage sticky clients.
