Any bandwidth test servers?

Any bandwidth test servers? All that is posted on the forum is dead.
Looking for one with 1Gbps test support.

Here are some example configs and a diagram that should point you in the right direction. A few notes on this - I tried to keep the config as simplistic as possible since you're dealing with very low speeds. There are more efficient ways to do this, but it requires more config.

Re: Is MikrotikOS good enough to support two networks independent of each other? (one needs PPPoE)

If I read the OP correctly, he does not have control of the PPPoE server. I am not sure what control means in this context but PPPoE server is on ISP side. Of course, I can run a PPPoE server on Mikrotik too and maybe(?) then pass public IP to 3rd Party Router but seems like your method is the best...

Assign a rate limit in the profile of the PPPoE server...

Check the rate limit in the above link..
Is rate limit same as queues?
On IRC channel people said that Queues limits will break PPPoE authentication. Is that true?

1. You said you want your internal router to PPPoE authenticate with your ISP right? For this to happen you should have a layer2 tunnel between your internal router and the ISPs router... What should be the port configuration for Layer 2 for: ISP Modem >(Layer 2)>Mikrotik>(Layer 2)>Internal Router ...

Create a PPPoE client...

Create PPPoE client on what device? and how? Not sure what you mean. Internal Route has only one way of connecting PPPoE. Do you mean I should do PPPoE authentication on Mikotik and pass the public IP to Internal Router?

Re: Is MikrotikOS good enough to support two networks independent of each other? (one needs PPPoE)

Yes, it is possible. RouterOS is not going to be a limitation and CPU power in a Hex is plenty for distributing those 8 mbps. Just use queues and separate the interfaces from the switch chip. Thanks for confirmation. First step, how should I configure a Mikrotik interface to allow the Internal Rout...

Re: Is MikrotikOS good enough to support two networks independent of each other? (one needs PPPoE)

The question is if you are able to make PPPoE connection from "internal" router to receive public address if there is no Mikrotik "in the middle"? What do Mikrotik should do in your opinion? Yes, internal router CAN PPPoE authenticate and get a public IP from ISP while it's connected downstream to ...

Re: Tik App, MikroTik android utility ALPHA test

If this app is not open source how can one be sure that data and access to routers are not logged, shared, or misused?

What is the guarrantee here to expose oneself to a third private party?

This is a serious concern.
