In a fair I've seen a system based on Mikrotik routerboard 133 working with two radios at 5 GHz.
In that system I enter through WinBox and I can configure every routerboard as:
- point to point link in bridge mode (only two radios)
- point to multipoint link in bridge mode (one master radio and more slave ones)
- point to point in bridge mode / wds station mode
- point to multipoint dynamic mode
(these are just some configurations)
If I correctly understand the routerboard has got only a bootloader "BIOS" to load the RouterOS operating system which I have to pay a license.
What can I do with RouterOS?
Is it the only OS I can use with the routerboard?
If I need to use a routerboard as a wireless repeater (using the two radio slots) or a point to point, or a multipoint configuration, do I need only RouterOS or something else?
I'm a lot confused!
Thanks in advance for help!
I have a R52 MiniPCI radio card, instead buying a routerboard, which Router Board 11 IA should I buy to use the radio mudule in my PC?
