Replacing VPN Routers with Mikrotik

Thu May 18, 2006 5:57 am

Hello

I use 3 of these
http://www.trendnet.com/products/TW100-BRV204_v1.htm

to link 3 offices togeather, I wanted to upgrade to routeros for more flexability

Would a rb500 have more cpu power than this unit?

Thanks

From what I can gather, it should not be a problem. It may actually boost performance (depending on how much you can spend). I saw some excryption acellerator cards (miniPCI) which is compatible with Linux - so that might work on MT as well.

Tunnels alone, you should not have any problems.

Chris

This TW100-BRV204, supports only 5 IPsec tunnels, so it is very limited, with mikrotik you can do more and alo you can tweak and tune it more so it can perfrom better.

Regards.

what about the ability to support more than 3 minipci radios via a routerboard?

or is the rb500 able to do that? i have not seen an offical ruling just a buch of threads where people were pointing to the power supply as the issue.

jo2jo,
Daughterboard (e.g. RouterBOARD 502) provides you with 2 additional MiniPCI slots for RouterBOARD 532. There are not any problems to use 3 65mW wireless cards in this system.
