I don't understand most of your questions. You are using Windows and you are asking for special driver to utilize MikroTik proprietary settings in Windows? No, that's not possible.
So, by installing a MT card in my laptop I am left with less options to manage it than any other make card?
I mean, if I have the original Dell card, or a intel card in the laptop I can choose at least the country settings so all the channels allowed for such country I can work in become available to use with that laptop.
Now, by installing a rb52n card in my laptop I can't bloody use it because my indoor test AP (rb600) is set to channel 13!
This is a normally allowed channel in my country and none of my wireless devices have any problems to connect to it.
The only one that doesn't even 'see' it is this laptop.....
Ok, I can change the channel on the AP. But that's not the idea. It's like simon here started the tread with some time ago; is there no windows manager program for the MT radio cards?
I installed an 'old' R52-350 card first and the driver for that did at least come with some (minor) contral program.
But the atheros 9220 based R52n only has a driver, not even a atheros control program.... only the windows default wireless manager works with it. But as said, doesn't have any control of the 'exotic' funciontality of the card...
It would be nice not only to control the card the same way you can under ROS but than it would indeed be possible to 'look' in the card's settings and register etc. to see the same info we can see under ROS.
It's like simon said, we can carry a whole bunch of extra radio's, cables and adapters with us doing onsite jobs, it would be so nice if we could do it all from that single one laptop I'll carry with me anyway....
Maybe anybody else has found a work around for this?
