HEX S - User Manager (Will it be enough)

Thu Apr 04, 2019 10:59 pm

My question is quite straightforward.

Does HEX S will be enough to run User Manager for maximum of 300 clients? Should I buy SD Card for storage ? Or should I forgot it and install RouterOS on x86 architecture, because HEX S won't have enough processing power?

I don't have any experience with RADIUS running on Mikrotik device so I hope you guys will give me some advice and maybe few tips and tricks.
THANK YOU!

Would you use a Mini to transport the local school rugby / soccer team to a game?

The Hex S is a SOHO device, that is an acronym for "Small Office / Home Office", do you think what you are trying to do fits in there?

Although your sarcastic comment is appreciated it's not what I needed. At least you could tell me what CRR should I use...
Anyway I suspected that it won't be enough (reason I've asked you guys here) but i'm working with what I got. Client is public school which as you can imagine trying to safe every penny they can hence they thought that it would be a brilliant idea to join this BS Eduroam project but don't want to spend money for a Linux server or powerful router.

Thank you for the analogy though, i'll make sure to use that one to explain it to their "IT" departement.

hey , first of all , i think you should check if the HEX lisence level will make you able to run 300 clients , in my openion , HEX with an SD card with HOTSPOT will run just fine , but i have to ask about the speed you are willing to get of course . i am running hex for about 50 clients with 2-4mbps and it is working just fine
