Yes "fine". Top ethernet performance on the RB100 series router is 50mbps. He's getting 40mbps UDP over a wireless, so I don't think that's bad at all. Instead of using the RouterOS bandwidth test try using two PCs, one behind each RB100 and see what results you get."fine"?That speed is fine IMO.
With 2 x Linksys WRT54GL (worst hardware than routerboard) you can push up 22/23Mbps TCP on 20MHz channel (so, NO turbo)....
This is your opinion.the linksys will crap out as they always do
This is not true. I installed a lot of WRT54GL "modded" to 180mW outdoor (in Gewiss or Pac Wireless enclosure), and they are rock solid for over a year. No maintenance at all.and get hot if your using hacked firmware.
I think it depends on the firmware version you used. I tried many third party firmware, and imho the best is dd-wrt.They arent very stable, ther are also tweakable settings inthe mt.
Mmmhh....no. RB100 + mPCI is a wifi devices, Linksys is a wifi devices. I'm comparing "potatoes and potatoes"Are you doing apples to apples or apples to oranges
Nate is right. Linksys will crap out. A very inferior product compared to the router board. I live in an area with alot of thunderstorms and it seems that a slight surge or brownout will many times reload factory defaults or fry the router.natedogg104 wrote:

I understand your disappontment, but if you search a little on this forum, you will find many threads talking aboyut the new ap-mode on ROS 3.x: pseudo-bridge. It's the ap-mode which you are looking for.2. Why can't we bridge ether + wlan when wlan is in mode=station? It sounds really silly. I mean all cheap hardware Access Points have this feature, but MT wich is worth a lot more can't do this simple task? I know it's not a linux kernel limitation, because many hardware access points that run linux do work like this. Even OpenWRT does this!

Its part of the wifi standard afaik.(We followed this tutorial: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Transpare ... o_Networks as it seems that you CAN'T bridge an ap client - anyone knows why?)
I came near to this numbers with rb500-399 2.9.46 5ghz nstream routedHello again, and sorry for the double post.
We tested with RouterOS v3rc4 tonight and here are the results:
UDP - from Computer to Computer (same setup with WDS + Bridge): 57Mbps one way, with the bandwidth test.
TCP - from Computer to Computer (same setup, wds + bridge): 37Mbps one way, using FTP. The bandwidth test (btest.exe) was _way_ slower, around 17Mbps.
The CPUs were MAXED OUT at 100% both on the rb133 and rb133c, so I guess you can actually get more with more powerfull CPUs. Ping times were acceptable, around 20ms.
The test was done indoor.
So yes, v3 really kicks the llama's ass!
Btw, I wasn't able to make the station pseudobridge work... I set the rb133 as ap bridge and the rb133c as station pseudobridge, bridged the wlan + ethernet on both sides but the computers weren't able to ping themselves. I'm guessing I did something wrong, but seing there are no available docs for v3 yet... Maybe someone can shed some light on how to actually use this?
And where this resistor may be?you can do it with a resistor but not sure of stability at 200MHz as its pushing memory beyond its rating somewhat.Any chance for a firmware with overclock options for RB133? At least 200-233Mhz option!
