I need to know if there is tests of miniPCI card WiMax (example: Wavesat chips) connect over routerboards to work with wireless?

Thanks
Alex

This fact is obvious... Might we inquire as to when RouterOS might support it??? Please do not say never or eventually... Yesterday's standards will only hold up so long. We need to be able to plan our upgrade roadmap.

The question was not that.

Can you answer, or is it a secret?

We will support this standard if it ever takes off, and miniPCI cards will be available to anyone at low cost. (It hasn't happened yet)

Thanks, that was butch better. Even it does not help us, but its not on MT.

An other question:

Any MIMO compatible card support?

Eg: TL-WN910N PCI, TL-WN851N PCI, TL-WN861N MPCI

I don't know theese card, but seen it, and have some test results.
Do you have any tests in progress?

Oh, I had forgotten about it, does it still exist :) ?

Seriously though, nope, we have no plans for it.

Did you read it yourself :) ? It says such driver doesn't exist (for linux) because it's proprietary

Well I was going to say contact they and try and get a binary driver for it since a few MT users seems to have license's for Wimax bands but there saw its needs a RTOS, not confirmed tho.

It'd be a nice extra feather in the MT hat to have but i'd almost say skip Wimax and release a licensed band card/711-type device for those of us wanting to use licensed bands, over here its about $200USD a year for 48mhz licensed PtP link but $5k+ USD for the gear to put on it

we can't use proprietary binary drivers just like that
