RouterOS_x86 + USB + ADSLmodem

Wed Sep 26, 2007 9:16 am

I collect the routers on the base PC and wanted connect 1-3 ADSLmodem on USB bus. Possible such decision?
Also, there was extremely comfortable have a possibility in MANUAL WinBox to enter URL address. Flesh and ActiveX there does not need but for governing web interface switch and modem will extremely useful.

At this point, to my knowlage, ADSL via USB is not supported.
You can use ADSL but only by ethernet.

Support for USB modems sounds a great idea, because AFAIK it also means less of an "approvals" problem connecting to public telephone lines, assuming the USB modem has approvals already.
Probably depends on the country how strict that is.

I think it would be great because it would enable "one-box" wifi hotspots that connect to the ADSL/telephone line, rather than a 2-box solution.

Just my 1/2pence worth.

Uldis

Speed Touch 330 - http://www.linux-usb.org/SpeedTouch/

Zyxel Prestige 630 - Not sure on Linux Drivers for this one.

USR - http://www.usr.com/support/9000/9000-li ... modem.html

Im not sure what is the best, but one of the most common is the SpeedTouch here in the UK.

We used to be able to get a package created to change the html landing page of the router with our own contact details and logo.. Linking the license to MT.

Also the ability to rebrand UserManager would be really helpfull

Suggest anyone who seriously wants/needs this post a "me too" here ...
BTW, some of the requests are from volume users - such as a major operator asking for 100's-1000's of units with integrated ADSL for backhaul.
But if it isn't on the immediate road-map, fair enough.

Thinking more about it, the most obvious applications for this are:
1. Operators deploying WiFi hotspots with integrated ADSL backhaul
2. Residential/home WiFi routers

Re: RouterOS_x86 + USB + ADSLmodem

I use MT-ROS mostly for site to site VPNs via ADSL

I dial pppoe sessions across bridged adsl modems and then connect PPTP tunnels across that. My clients always ask why the separate modem. I always tell them that there is no product that can be built in yet.

So it's being asked for...

I have 12 MTs deployed so far and more coming real soon. All of them have ADSL connected like this and I would LOVE to have a mini PCI card or even support for the Broadcom chipsets allowing me to flash a router off the shelf with it.

Please answer us on this MT!

I just googled if MT supports USB ADSL modems. This post has been around for a while I see and I hope MT supports it now. Currently I have my x86 MT do a PPPoE dialout through an ethernet port connected to a big ADSL router in bridge mode with most of its features disabled.

Few reasons why USB ADSL modem would be better:

1) You spare an ethernet port.
2) Modem uses less power, does not have other features like a standard router.
3) Is a lot smaller.

Thanks for all the replies.

Hi,

I'm a new proud owner of an RB751, I was wondering whether the support for USB xDSL modem has been added or if there's a way to achieve that (i.e. some trick).

I do think that, for SOHO use, being able to control a small USB xDSL is really a plus. Of course the greatest thing would be to have an integrated xDSL modem ;)

Thanks and regards

+1
I would be interested in the USB modem feature, that way the modem could draw power straight from the USB port of the router. Less power adapters, wires and hardware to go wrong (we currently use a two device solution and feel it's ugly)
