I did not modify the case.I've looked at that previously but the cut outs on the rear panel of the CA433 case doesn't match the RB953GS-5HnT (antenna & SFP cages).Just got my RB953GS-5HnT. CA/433 case fits fine
Did you modify the case ?
Thank you. I'm looking forward to the pics.I did not modify the case.
The cuts don't match but there is enough space for pigtails (SMA to N) and sfp's to fit inside the case. The SMA connectors and SFP cages have about 5cm of space to the rear-end of the case.
I will take a picture later today.
Thank you very much. The pictures help a lot because I was thinking the PCB extends to the end of the case which it actually doesn't.Here are some pics...
The pigtails I use in these pictures are a little 'large'. Normal sized cable will fit fine.
The older RB953GS-5HnT has SMA antenna connectors. For those you'll need 3 pcs of SMA to MMCX adapters to be able to use the MikroTik antenna :ok.got it.one more thing: cna you please tell what kind of connectiors are you using from board to case -> in which you connect the antenas?
RSMS -> RSMA ?
I have 3 RP-SMA and on the site i can buy from( http://wifimag.ro/cabluri ) i can;t see any of this.
If you're using the MikroTik case and antenna, then there is no difference. Just get the correct adapter (SMA to MMCX or RP-SMA to MMCX).thanks Belgarion186
I only have the option to buy the old model.Does it make sense to wait for the new board to be available?
Hi Belgarion168,Standard ones from MikroTik. Here's mine :What kind of antenas can i use with this board?
And how many ? 3 or 2?
It's a standard CA433U case and 3 x ACSWIM antenna.Hi Belgarion168,
could you please tell us exactly what hardware you used in that setup on the photo?
I won a MikroTikRB953GS at the MUM in Zürich, and want to use it as a 5GHz Home Router, because the 2,4 GHz Band here is so overloaded.
I could not find the Case online anywhere with the nice Mikrotik-Branded-Frontpanel as shown on your Picture. And then i still need three 5 GHz Antennas, and corresponding Pigtails.
Thanks for your exact information.
