802.11ac Mini PCI

Fri Mar 15, 2013 1:52 am

Dear Mikrotik Forum,
do you know if Mikrotik is compatible with some 802.11ac Mini PCI?. It seems interesting not because of channel width but cause of 256QAM modulation. I checked some old post but I did not find it. Thanks a lot.

Currently we do not support AC cards in the RouterOS yet.

Thanks for your answer. At least, I know Router OS does not support this kind of Mini PCIs right now.

Did Mikrotik have plan and ETA to use 802.11ac ?

Fibre is catching on WISP and we need more amo.

Thank you.

802.11ac will likely need new kernel and we as well can assume that will go into the v7 series of ROS:

just as previously written elsewhere on this forum, MikroTik uses it's own drivers, not wifi from the kernel.

Why is that code duplication needed?

If your Wifi is much better then contribute that back to the vanilla kernel as well.

Would be nice with an ETA for 802.11AC cards. AC is getting pushed out in most of the new laptops( both me and my wife laptop has AC) and consumer routers now have AC.

only way I see 802.11ac with Mikrotik is with RB800 boards. Think how much CPU you will need.

I had a rb800 for wifi with a 450mbit card, but I'm not going to wait for ac support thus my ap is now a asus ac66u device. It seems to only need 3 antennas for both 2&5 ghz. That I like.

We have several topics open with this issue. Take closer look at the image the second client in the image has a last activity time of several hundred seconds.

When this happens the interface will not pass traffic until the client is knocked off the AP. We have dealt with support, sent supout (Ticket#2012080366000334) and got no answers at all. Been fighting with this for well over a year now.

This was the last response we got from you.....

Hello,

currently we are not able to suggest anything else - we see that there are
problems with the card itself or maybe with the noise that you have in that area,
as the software debug logs shows that the card can't transmit the frames (fails).
Those problems I see on both cards wlan2 and wlan3. Maybe it is because you are
using antenna-mode=ant-b setting. Maybe you have a different wireless cards to
test out?


Except that this happens randomly all over the network, not just on one node. Once the stale client has been cleared and locked out with an access list entry, everything works fine again. Over 2 years and nothing fixed, so you will forgive me for not thinking that your proprietary drivers are "much better".
