It passed 12 days and there is not only no new router in distributor's store, but also no mention about RB751U at routerboard.comActually the RB751G will come after the RB751U, which will ship to distributors in around 10-14 days.
12 days after YOUR information, that "RB751U will ship to distributors in around 10-14 days"12 days since when?It passed 12 days and there is not only no new router in distributor's store, but also no mention about RB751U at routerboard.com
I was always talking about an announcement. Not when the end user will hold the unit in their hands. Sorry, hard to predict that date exactly. Depends on shipping times etc.Well considering that distributors can't even order them yet, I can't see how we can pay for them and have them shipped .....
I'm sure that's not true. When we announced RB751, we said "june" and that was in March. But it doesn't matter, you are right. We missed our promised date. I'm sorry about that, and I hope that you will be able to order this product this monthWhen you announced "plans for making it", in the PDF doc, availability stated: next month.
Maybe you should skip availability predictions until you're sure.
the most important part is that your antenna needs a straight MMCX connector, angled connector won't fit!Which external antenna will fit to RB751? I'd like to use something like this one: http://routerboard.com/ACSWI - but it should be without cable and with MMCX connector?
Thanks for this warning!angled connector won't fit!
I'm still waiting for RB751, but I can look for something like this antenna now (or check if Alibaba sends here to Slovakia). It seems that external antenna with cable is needed? Nothing to plug or screw directly?when talking about antenna shape - anything will do, something like this (standing, or suction cup) is more practical:

no, this will replace one of the internal antennas. you will still have two chains, one internal, one external.Well, I will find something here then.
Let me ask one more question: RB751 has two antennas integrated using two chains, right? (something like SXT) What will be happen when I connect external antenna? Both of internal will be turned off? Or one of internal will work on chain0 and external one on chain1?
Well, but what about Tx power? Internal antennas have 2 dBi, so I may use 25 dBm of Tx power to get maximum power allowed here. Let's say I will connect some external 13 dBi antenna - I would have to lower Tx power to 14 dBm, so internal antenna will be practically "invisible". Or is it possible to set Tx power for each chain separately?no, this will replace one of the internal antennas. you will still have two chains, one internal, one external.
I received this from Mikrotik on Sep 26th.Any notice about CE Certification (EN 55022 class A) ?
The mount holes are 70mm (2.75 in.) apart with 6mm (1/4in.) diameter head size.Can anybody post a picture of the back side of the RB751U, along with the exact distance between the holes?
I'm interested in the mount options.
you can also use an adapter to extend the connector, or to convert it to SMA:I'm waiting for CE certification too.
Now I'm looking for an omnidirectional antenna cca 8-15 dBi - something like normis has mentioned (http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/37948 ... tenna.html), but with straight MMCX connector. I can't find any. Has somebody found some?
We are working on fixing this shortcomingHaving just received the RB751 today (200 pieces ) I am very very disappointed to see that the MMCX connector is useless with Right Anged MMCX connectors, which I would say most if not all people use.
I haven't ever seen a straight MMCX connector before (I have after googling it) however if the connector was just slightly further exposed this wouldn't be an issue.
In my opinion this is a serious design flaw.
We will now have to source new MMCX cables SOLELY to use with RB/751 (and for our customers)
So anyone wanting to use an external antenna, start sourcing your new cables.
haha, we have seen the constant improvements with RB435G, RB750GL, RB1200, SXT, OmniTik and Groove in the last year, so Mikrotik are proving it is not just about "Marketing-Talk"when I said "we always keep improving our products" you thought it was just marketing-talk ?
I've heard there are some problems with CE certification. Is it truth?I received this from Mikrotik on Sep 26th.Any notice about CE Certification (EN 55022 class A) ?
"More units to EU distributors we will be able to send in ~three weeks, when CE DoC will be ready."
It is possible. At least some of the more popular USB->Serial chipsets are supported by RouterOS. I just tool a PL2303-based cable, plugged it into my 751U, and saw it show up as a port under '/ports' and it let me configure a console on it under '/system console'.You mean with something like a USB->Serial adapter? I'm pretty sure that is not currently possible.
