Re: Is there a router/switch to beat the 4011?

My current internet is 100/100 but will be upped to 3 or 500 next year. As i said, i was hoping for an all in one due to space issues, but at that price for the switch, I will certainly give it some serious thought. Excuse my ignorance, but could the recommended switch act as a router as well, so i...

Re: Is there a router/switch to beat the 4011?

Thanks for the replies. This is a standard small business set up with a few wired devices and access points. I want to add a couple more access points, and possibly some other devices in the future, hence the reason for not really needing any more than 16 ports for the foreseeable future, and prefe...

Re: Is there a router/switch to beat the 4011?

Not enough info. Do You need more ports? More bandwidth? Both? Just above the RB4011 we have three options:: RB1100AHx4, CCR1009-7G-1C-PC and CCR1009-7G-1C-1S+PC But they are quite different pieces of hardware, with (or without) SFP+ ports. Also the CCR don't have a switch chip, and the RB1100AHx4 h...

Re: Newsletter 97 (September 2020)

One thing that would be better, on the hAP AC3, is the voltage input range. It takes from 12V to 28V on the DC input port. It is good, but we can't really just plug it in a battery system, without some voltage regulator: a 12V system could go as low as 10,9V, and a 24V one can go as high as 28,8v. Y...

Yes, it works: Wireguard link P2P with /128 mask at both ends.

Why would I do it, You ask. Well, turns out a lot of people like to do it this way. We could use a /127 and two addresses, from the same range. But sometimes We are peering with someone that don't like it, and want to use their IP at their point. I was testing it as a solution to BGP peering at DN42...

Re: v7.1beta2 [development] is released!

Can you get 1Gbps wireguard throughput on any of the mikrotik devices at this time?
They posted a print with one hAP AC2 doing 700 Mbps. Given the CPU used by the RB4011, with also 4 cores and much higher processing power, I'd say yes.

Re: Can RB260GSP power RB750G via PoE?

You don't need to force negotiation to 100Mbit. Let it on "auto", since both of them are gigabit devices.

I have one RB260GSP powering one hEX and one hAP ac lite. The hEX is gigabit, and works quite happily with the PoE provided.

You should only switch PoE out to "on" if You are REALLY sure the other side supports it. With "auto" the device tests, to see if the other side can handle PoE, and only put power on the wire if yes. With the option "on" it powers up the wires, and that's it. That said....

Re: Can RB260GSP power RB750G via PoE?

It should. Both of them use passive PoE - a not exactly standard thing.

Here is the product page:

Power by passive PoE is used by Mikrotik in almost all its products - just a few of them don't support it.
