Re: 60GHz multipoint, share your experience

Can anyone tell me what the usable beamwidth of the LHG dish is, when running it as a PtMP AP?

Re: MikroTik News December 2018 (Issue #86)

Be aware that the powerline stuff will wipe out the entire HF spectrum and raise the anger of radio amateurs near to you. Don't care? You will. Radio Amateurs have equipment AND LICENSING to LEGALLY use TENS OF KILOWATTS EIRP on spectrum from 1MHz to 50GHz, and should you wipe out their hobby they W...

Re: # BUG !!! INTERFACE - ETHER - POWER-CYCLE-PING-ADDRESS #

What ever happened with this bug?

I have a PowerBox Pro with v6.41.1 and it refuses to power-cycle any POE interface, and power-cycle ping does no action whatsoever, as if it is configured incorrectly. It is running from solar + 24V battery, usually about 26V supply.

Can anyone advise?

cranky POE

What's the story with the cranky POE with the PowerBox Pro? Is this unit not for 12V battery operation?

Re: Feature Request - System Voltage and Temperature Graphing in Resource

I searched the forum for this feature request before posting, and found this thread. The feature request is somewhat moot, considering that a 24V battery/solar system on equalise will over-voltage and continuously reset-cycle a RB493G. I had to build a simple regulator to drop a few volts off the 49...

Re: no admin access on PowerBox Pro

It's working now. The network is routed, and the box didn't know how to return packets to the network I was connecting from.

no admin access on PowerBox Pro

Why can't I access the router with winbox on ether2-ether5? I can connect perfectly on ether1 with either winbox or http. Config is ether2,3,4,5 switched, and then bridged with ether1. There are no firewall rules or any other restrictions, and otherwise a completely plain configuration. The logfile ...

Re: Hotspot an a specific pool range

It's a lot of work to run two DHCP servers on the same LAN segment. I think you will have to run the hotspot on a separate network.

hotspot behaving strangely

Greetings, I have a hotspot config as such ; gateway->MikrotikHotSpot->ethernet-> WDS wireless bridge network (three ubiq radios). Clients seem to connect properly to any of the WDS radios and get DHCP addressing from the Tik and the login page is displayed properly, and the user may login. However,...

RB2011UAS bridge both switches [SOLVED]

What is the correct way to bridge the two switches in the RB2011UAS?

I assume ;

gateway on ether1
master 3,4,5 back to ether2
master 7,8,9,10 back to ether6
Bridge ONLY ether2,ether6
Add IP address to bridge.

Re: Full duplex mimo

He asked for low latency not necessary for full duplex. Full duplex was a questionable solution. Do you think so? I'd like to hear any suggestion of getting .2mSec latency from a half-duplex TDM link. I don't think that exists. Wireless ISP's are not affected by extra 1-3ms> we are dealing with muc...

Re: Which types of ports would you like to see for a high speed router

And go compete with china?

I think you should stick with wireless stuff, and maybe build a quality FDM full-duplex system with sub-1ms ping over 10km. We'd like that.

Re: Full duplex mimo

All understood. But obviously Nstreme dual does actually function hardware full-duplex at all, or was that just a lie? On the face of it, it seems a perfectly good idea. So what was is it's limitation? What happened? Is RF isolation not good enough for true FDM? Was it no faster than the emerging TD...

Re: Full duplex mimo

Thank you. I suppose there must still be a return path for that echo request. But the Bandwidth-Delay Product should be reduced over that full-duplex link? This is mainly my problem - reducing end-to-end latency - FDM links are supposed to fix that. TDM links make it worse. Any further ideas on lowe...

Re: Full duplex mimo

Bandwidth - I will just use it as fast as it will go. 150mbit actual TCP would be nice - probably it will go faster than 150. I have clear LOS and clear fresnel. Distance ~8km. Spectrum is clear. Signals are excellent. Antennas are large and narrow. Mostly I need latency as low as possible - current...

Full duplex mimo

Greetings, I need a very low latency solution for a fast point-to-point link, and I want to research an Nstreme-Dual Mimo hardware-full-duplex 80/160MHz links, to avoid bandwidth-delay problems. Was such a config feasible? Was the latency an order of magnitude better? No off-topic, please. Thanks so...
