Routerboard battery

Wed Jun 02, 2010 6:10 pm

Please can i have a battery to backup my date and time on my routerboard. I have a routerboard 1000v and 433AH. They both reset date and time after each reboot, i want to be able to have the time and date backedup for proper accountability of my usermanager.

Current option: configure your router as a NTP client...
Things that make you go "Hmmmmmmmm"...

Make sure you NTP servers actually work, I picked some public ones which worked, but for some reason MK didn't like them and it wouldnt update the time. So if it doesn't work, try some more.

There seems to be a deference between ntp package client and default ntp client. So if you don't need ntp server feature uninstall ntp package and see if you can sync-up.

Check http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/ for public servers, other lists are available via Google.
