Yes, you can use both features at the same time.

I haven't Btested it for performance, but it was sufficient when i used it.

What is the question here? Any device will support VPN. It is not very resource intensive.

Give us more details about what type of VPN you need and how many users you will connect there. Are you actually talking about VPN server or client on the RouterBOARD?

This is not very intensive config. You can have more VPN connections without problems. RAM and HDD space is not relevant for such setup. CPU is fast enough.

Wireless AP + NAT + firewall + SNTP + Fasttrack + DNS + uPnP + PPTP server, on 50Mbps connection, no problems what so ever.
I think you need to stop making theories and actual try the thing.

:D okayi have to try this in live scenario.. Thanks for you advices both of you..

Actually I was comparing its price and resources with cisco rv042, rb450, rb750 which has higher price that's why I am so much confused.

In Cisco world you even have to pay for extra static routes ;)
A week ago I came across rather beefy 48 port router/switch combo which refused to add 17th static route without additional license costing more than $5k :shock:

Mikrotik world is totally different - limits on licenses are well.... above what hardware can handle ;) No devices are crippled - all devices supports all features (of course except some special features where additional hardware is required, e.g. for hardware switching).

maybe a little less than that for vpn performance

i have tested haplite on a ipsec site to site AES-128cbc SHA1 gets a maximum of 29mbit/s with 100% cpu usage

a heavy nat + firewall + mangle + queue tree gets a maximum of 45mbit/s with 100% cpu usage

off course a simpler configuration moves 100mbit/s without problem

I recently bought an hAP Lite, configured a hotspot on it at my home for three users, upgraded to the latest firmware and the device never came back up after reboot. Tried resetting it multiple times too and still wouldn't come back up. Eventually swapped it out for an RB-750R2.
