and for $100 you *could* have purchased a Mikrotik Level 4 (WISP) software license on a 64MB Disk-on-module device that is solid state and connects directly to an IDE port on your router mainboard. This device can be moved from PC to PC with no issue and has NO moving parts to fail.
I use several of them in my network with great success.
I have to agree and expand upon Beccara's post...you have not done enough reading at all. I don't mean to be insulting, but if you had read even a little bit about Mikrotik pre-purchase, you would have purchased it on a DOM device, or in an RB5xx device.
It also seems that you are at a disadvantage because you are using a satellite connection.
I also agree with Beccara that all of your problems are config related, and I sympathize with you because, in my opinion, Mikrotik has poor support and documentation. I struggled for months and months and questioned my decision to go with Mikrotik for a long time, but then things started to click in my head, and my configs started to work. I had to take the examples that I had taken from months of reading, and tweak them to fit my application.
I suppose if I needed somthing right away, I would have contacted Butch Evans consulting (http://www.butchevans.com
) to hire him to teach me. You might try that. You also may be interested in the 4-day class in St. Louis, MO, USA, at the end of July.
