Greetings from South Africa! I have been trolling the forums for a week now and decided it was time to post!
I have seen other posts on CPU usage and more often then not, there seems to be a problem with faulty hardware.
I have been dabbling with MikroTik 411's and RouterOS 3.6 for little more than a week now. I have just completed my CPE installations and connected my DSL last night. While no PPPOE was configured, my CPU usage seemed to randomly jump between 0%, 4% and 100%. Is this normal? I'm about to seal off the CPE's so would like to resolve it now and not later if there is indeed a possibility of a faulty RouterBoard.
The other thing is that WinBox randomly disconnects with an error "other side not responding" although I am immediately able to reconnect again.
