Thank you soo much! ) It will be very good! There are a lot of people, who want to build very own router system but at the moment ROS hardware support isn't perfect... Especially support of integrated ethernet chipsets... Sometimes really impossible to find motherboard with supported integrated ethernet chipset, they doesn't produced anymore, for example unsupported modern mini-ITX boards have only one slot for add-on cards what can be enough together with integrated card but useless without...RouterOS v6beta3 will have a new kernel and drivers, so probably support will be there.
Can you confirm, that ALL chipsets supported in native vanila linux-3.3.5 will be supported in ROS 6? I mean can we hope, that nothing will be cuted off at final?RouterOS v6beta3 will use this kernel - "linux-3.3.5", you could check linux community whether the chipsets are supported by the vanilla kernel of this version.
For example:we don't add support for chipsets, but for IDE, SATA, ethernet etc. have you tested these motherboards? which things were not recognized?
Please clarify, none of these Ethernet chipsets were recognized with RouterOS v6beta2?For example:we don't add support for chipsets, but for IDE, SATA, ethernet etc. have you tested these motherboards? which things were not recognized?
Atheros Gigabit Ethernet
None of them working in ROS 5.17, the question was about support in ROS 6... We don't have founds to test all possible platforms by ourself That's why I asking you to help to make the right choice for upgrade of our hardware! We are going to move on Intel NM10 or Intel *77 platforms, but all of them have modern ethernet chipsets build in, so I want to be sure before buy!
Please clarify, none of these Ethernet chipsets were recognized with RouterOS v6beta2?
OK, we will do it as soon as possible. Can you tell me estimate date of ROS 6 beta 3 download availability?You will have to test these in RouterOS v6beta3, and if they are not recognized with the new kernel, make a supout.rif file and send to us, we will then add support manually. So don't worry - we can add support.
What kind? A lot of jobs... Any i3 based x86 router with ROS on board is MUCH faster than hardware solutions from Mikrotik available now...(google a bit, a lot of tests around) For example we intensive use OpenVPN tunnels and routing gigabit network on the same x86 server. We tested same configuration on RB1100AHx2 and we got much more pps on x86 system. I don't know about performance of CCR1036, but I'm really sure, that price will be more than $400, for this money you can get perfect x86 server for ROS...Hello Forum Members,
I ask my self what kind of job should be done by a x86 based machine using the chip sets, that were named above
in the thread title, a RB1200, RB1100AH or a RB1100AHx2 can´t do?
The best answer - "Why not?" )) Actually I don't understand what a problem for you if modern chipsets will be supported?... I understand why you don't like x86 routers but it's you personal choice...Hello again RusConSPb,
each guy has his own mind and I don´t want to led you to my mind! But with an dedicated view on the thread headline and related on the support for those brand new chip sets I thought quite easy; "Why should they support this?")
