Re: Ptp 3.9km Config Optimization

Hello, First off, I think you should look at your MCS... 0-7 are for chain 0, 8-15 for chain 1, 16-23 chain 2..... you have 2 chains and should only concern yourself with 8-15 as 0-7 only have influence when working in single chain mode. change your MCS to al least have MCS10.11,14,15 and try differ...

Re: MCS and chains

You are correct.

MCS-16-23 are for a third chain. Just because they are there doesn't mean they are usable. The options are just baked into the RouterOS and no "per device".
Each chain (antenna) has 8 MCS options, so 0-15.

Re: v6.41.3 [current]

I haven't seen any information here on forum but hopefully this version patches the malware attack "Slingshot". It was only announced 2 days ago, but possibly it was known already to Mikrotik and fixed, as mentioned at the end of the article in the link below. https://www.engadget.com/2018/03/11/sop...

Re: Dual sim wifi router for buses

The only option I can see IF you want to use Mikrotik for this is RB953GS-5HnT-RP with an additional 2.4GHz AP connected to an ethernet port to get 2 SIMs and Dual Band WiFi coverage. A bit expensive but should meet all your requirements...just a bit overkill on the 5GHz side, though :P https://mikr...

Re: omni to increase range of signal

Your antenna is strong enough but your card is the weak point. You can only use up to 18 dBm @ 802.11g 6mbps data rate with -90 on Rx sensitivity . I would find a card that can use more output power, plus this seems like an old card and better to upgrade to an a/b/g/n 2.4Ghz with like 20-25 dBm outp...
