Hi,
I'm currently planing the network setup from our new building. And because i work in my company with mikrotik i thought it can't be bad for home use?
So my idea is to use the CRS125-24G-1S-RM as Switch/Router and two wapAC together as access points with capsman.

Will this work pretty good? Or there are any troubles?

I would have the possibility to manage everything on the CRS. Setup a 2,4 Ghz WLAN and one on 5 Ghz.
Also would it be pretty good if i can setup a Guest Wifi based on 2,4 Ghz.
Would be great if you can help me to do this journey

kind regards
Manuel

Hi,

I use CRS125 as a switch/ router + wAP AC at home and it works for me (ADSL broadband, some firewall rules and no QoS - CPU usage around 5-10%). You need to remember CRS is primary a switch with routing capabilities.
You are asking if this will work. It should but depends on your requirements and amount of traffic you are going to push through the CRS. CRS has rather weak CPU.

Check table on the bottom of the: https://routerboard.com/CRS125-24G-1S-RM

Best,

Thanks for your quick answer! Did the traffic trough with the capsman also works fine?

I think switching traffic wouldn't be nesercary?

I wanna use this with a 100/50mbit VDSL Connection.

Thanks in advance!
Manuel

Your plan Sounds good, the wAP ac is an excellent indoor AP for home or elsewhere.

Ok, it only would be great if those would be available in another Design :-) specially like Cap.

Sorry for pushing this thread, but i currently thinking about it to buy one of these routers.
At work i only had to do with the CCR-Series.

But for home usage i wanna get one device what can do all for me,
so what would be better?

CRS125-24G-1S-RM vs CRS326-24G-2S+RM ?

I only need one SFP, so thats no preference.

Thanks

Both of those are switches. This thread is talking about a wireless router (access point). What features are you looking for? What are your requirements?

Yes you are right, sorry for the wrong description.
I mean switches with RouterOS :)

So what i wanna have is
  • VDSL through SFP (SFP should arrive soon)
  • IPSEC/L2TP for Smartphones/Laptop
  • Capsman for 2 wap AC
  • simple Firewall for Home-use
  • little bit Routing
Thats it, i think the bottle neck would be the IPSec Tunnel or? As Far as i Know only the RB1100 has Hardware Acceleration for AES. But if i can get a troughput with about 5mbit i am pretty happy with it.

POE-Out would also be a requierement for IP-Cameras and the two wap AC but i think it's easy to use POE-Injectors for those devices.

kind regards
