We have some routerboards that are located on the far end of some less than 100% reliable links. It seems that if only a few (or possibly only one) packet is lost, winbox will disconnect.
Would it be possible to make winbox/RouterOS connectivity a bit more robust in the face of moderate packet loss?
Occasionally, when these links are really acting up, they may go down completely for 5 or 10 second periods and/or experience very heavy packet loss, but we've also seen winbox disconnect when the link only seems to have around 5% or less packet loss. I have one link like this where I am lucky if I can go more than a minute or so between winbox disconnects, even though the link works fine for webbrowsing/file transfers/normal internet stuff.
