Re: v6.45.2 [stable] is released!

"improved 802.11ac stability for all ARM devices with wireless" I have cAP ac. New version improves upload on my Huawei Mate 20 Lite (from ~150 Mbit/s to ~190 Mbit/s), but download speed is lower. On 6.45.2 download is 50 Mbit/s average, on 6.44.5 it is higher than 100 Mbit/s. cAP is at the ceiling ...

Re: Advisory: Vulnerability exploiting the Winbox port

Well, this is really embarrassing, my enthusiasm with MikroTik is fading due to this few recent vulnerabilities and attacks. Use Ubiquiti instead :lol: Then you will have huge security problems and vulnerabilities. In last two years they had very serious problems with attacks (with one our network ...

Re: big mistake [SOLVED]

What you can do if the AP doesn't want to go above 54Mbps Set the band to only-n and de select all the basic/supported a/g rates. Seriously? Tried that and wrote about it in a post above yours: AP cannot achieve TX rate higher than 54 Mbit with some devices even if you switch it into 802.11n mode o...

Re: big mistake [SOLVED]

Mikrotik is not what you call consumer grade, don't assume similar level of knowledge will suffice. I administrate network with 1k users, so it is not a matter of knowledge level. AP cannot achieve TX rate higher than 54 Mbit with some devices even if you switch it into 802.11n mode only and set Tx...

That's why you should use unifi when you are building home/office/hotel network: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=102908 If good wireless and its compatibility with all devices is not a priority for Mikrotik, then what is a priority and why we need products such as wAP or cAP?

Your laptop is OK. There is a problem with Mikrotik wireless drivers when they are connected with some Broadcom chips: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=102908#p618041

Re: big mistake [SOLVED]

The only mistake you could do is to badly design your network or misconfigure your devices. Maybe you did both errors? Mikrotik has some issues with wireless when connecting with non-mikrotik devices (especially phones). Here you can find more information about it: https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewto...

Re: Dramatically low speed of 802.11n AP mode on R52Hn

My conclusion is that all issues of WiFi on Mikrotik devices are totaly sowftware problem. They are. Mikrotik is aware of it and they are doing nothing with this. Wireless is very weak point in Mikroitk. They worked for ages to obtain good throughput in 802.11n and now it works ok, but only for NV2...

Re: NetMetal 5 i cant reach 540Mbps

What CPU load do you have on NetMetals and 3011 during Btest? What happens with TCP results if you change channel width to 40 MHz? Are you testing it with one TCP session or more?

Re: Dramatically low speed of 802.11n AP mode on R52Hn

This is how Mikrotik works with some devices. Normis confirmed it: https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=102908 Probably they will not fix it soon (it is low priority). You shouldn't buy Mikrotik as AP for non-Mikrotik devices. Actually I don't understand why devices such as wAP or cAP exists a...

Re: CSS326-24G-2S+RM - with POE

Will it support IGMP snooping? I cannot find any datasheet of 98DX3216A1 switching chip and I don't know if IGMP snooping support can be implemented.

Re: v6.37 [current] is released!

or they will be left some backdoor possibillity to go without DFS
There is a "backdoor" (actually well known feature not a backdoor). Use superchannel as frequency mode and make sure that your radio is set to the channel allowed in your country.

Re: v6.37rc [release candidate] is released, only one wireless package!

What if I use routerboard in the country that does not requires use of DFS (eg. Uzbekistan)?
Will Mikrotik force use of DFS in such situations?
