Re: Global Shortage?

There are also other MikroTik based products available. They have a list on-line as well as you can google! Many people are purchasing PowerRouter 732s cause they are supported, tested, years of reliability, as well as are in-stock.

I know you are saying you can guarantee it, but again, there is more factors than # of users. Again, we have a 2282 running 15,000 users! Why, cause of the rest of the rules etc that they put into it. So # of users is really not a good "benchmark".
