What routerboard am I using?

Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:58 am

Hey guys,

How do I know what routerboard i am using, without opening the enclosure, and causing downtime for my clients?

I am using RouterOS V2.9.51 and /system resources says:
# jan/28/2010 10:12:09 by RouterOS 2.9.51
# software id = XXXX-XXXX
#
                   uptime: 1w22h19m13s
                  version: "2.9.51"
              free-memory: 17560kB
             total-memory: 30428kB
                      cpu: "MIPS 4Kc V0.11"
            cpu-frequency: 175MHz
                 cpu-load: 5
           free-hdd-space: 30864kB
          total-hdd-space: 61440kB
  write-sect-since-reboot: 1108
         write-sect-total: 362477
               bad-blocks: 0
I cannot bring the Highsite down, as I will have downtime problems with clients. I never installed it, the previous technician did.

I would like to upgrade, but
a) I need to know the archtecture
b) I need to know if upgrading will be viable on this specific board.(I have upgraded on some older boards, and the OS just crashes and my CPU usage goes up ten fold)

Thank you

I think it's mipsle architecture. RB133 or RB153. RouterOS 2.9.51 is good enough for this RB

Why do you want to upgrade? Are you missing features that 2.9.51 doesn't offer? 2.9.51 is stable and still running fine on my older rb1xx and rb5xx routerboards. Some have uptimes of more than 1 year.

Your board is a rb1xx family routerboard. As Normis implied "/system routerboard print" will give you the model number.
The rb1xx boards are reliable but a bit sluggish compared to today's RouterBoards.

It sounds like it occupies a critical location in your network. I would probably leave it at 2.9.51, or else replace it with a newer RB4xx RouterBoard rather than risk upgrading to a new major version.

Thanks for advice I got the model number I needed. I am running V2.9.50, and yes, it is my main AP, that feeds most of my clients, and my other AP.

It is not that there are missing features, it is just that i like to keep with technology, and upgrades.
system> routerboard print
       routerboard: yes
             model: "532"
     serial-number: "0B8201D91FA5"
  current-firmware: "2.12"
  upgrade-firmware: "2.12"

Your first print out is not from RB532. RB500 don't have 175MHz CPU clock.
