What do you expect? This is not a vendor forum LOL.

Checking streakwave, they have it ON ORDER.
https://www.streakwave.com/mikrotik-rbc ... b-g-n-a-ac

Wireless Wave, available for back orders....
https://www.shop.wirelessnetware.ca/wir ... xl-ac.html

ISP supplies call for availability
https://www.ispsupplies.com/MikroTik-Ro ... 5acD2nD-XL

Best guess, when other vendors have wifi6E affordable access points. :-)

Put in a few cap XL ACs last month. (December.) They had them at AMAZON and got some from BalticNetworks.

Its a more powerful cap AC. I didn't spec them, and wasn't to pleased with the results.

Thanks, I'm living in Russia and I suppose this may be the first country where the product will be available in the shops. I see only the version "no-XL" available..
I've just supposed here may someone knows when this product will be available on usual shops like DNS, etc. I really hope soon! Honesly I don't understand why it takes so much time.
I'm writing to sales as well

I assumed when you typed St Petersburg... You didn't mean Florida.

Mate I've found RBcAPGi-5acD2nD available on some shops but I got confused, this is not the XL version (it would be better Mikrotik named it in a different way to save people from mistakes, like me now). So I've edited the post, but you were quicker than me ;)

I need Capsman. This router should substitute an old MIkrotik one without 5GHz, I would chose the best possible antennas Gain, this XL has much better design than AC3 (black) to install on the wall.

Why you say it can be unstable? You are worring me..

How many APs from one location are you configuring......if its 3 or less, I call BS on needing capsman.
But... But...

I ran caps man on my hAP AC2 router with it's wireless disabled. Then the only cap being the Audience I have. Seeing all 3 radios in real time on my router was nice.

And I am guilty of using caps-man to manage 2 or 3 Mikrotik WAPs, in many sites.

However... I found that I still had problems with throughput and devices connected to 2.4.

Since moving that Audience to a 3 radio WAP running the WAVE 2 drivers... I have the best wifi performance I have seen out of a Mikrotik WAP serving clients. But that kills caps-man and several other Mikrotik radios features.

But I get downloads 50~60% faster in the same spot with the same amount of clients spread across all 3 radios.

Unfortunately this network is already done and have 8caps, I'm not going to change all of it.
If I understood right (sorry sometimes your english don't let me understand all) you are complaining about the performance of Mikrotik caps, if it's about its hardware.. antennas in particular, I absolutely agree with you. Seems only recently Mikrotik figured out how important is to have good antennas in their routers, this is why Im waiting for XL, but if you're considering else, are you sure you setup the caps in the proper way?

Anyway sale department just answered me:

"Thank you for the e-mail. We should have RBcAPGi-5acD2nD-XL in stock at the end of April. I believe this is the reason why distributors don't have this product in stock at the moment."

it's redicolous to advertise a product many months before they can sell it, in my case they make my clients waiting for nothing.

Worldwide shortage of electronics.

Try to buy a new car nowadays.
Not from stock, newly configured.
Some brands/models you can wait 6 months to a year.

So if you have to wait 3 months... It's a good time to look at alternatives.

I'ts amazing that all my sellers keep postponing me the avaliability for ths access point! They said decembre, than january, then march.. and now april/may!! This is not really serious

Which is the sense Mikrotik advertise a product if it's not able for many months to distribute it to the market? Not weeks, months!

***No alternatives than Mikrotik**** network is already built and working with many APs, one access pont needs more power and antenna.
The only valid alternative is RBD53iG-5HacD2HnD gain, but it's black and with 2 longs antennas, if my client catches me installing somthing like that on its wall he will kick my ass till the exit door (

Do you know how many times my CTO has asked over my shoulder "Can that control a good radio?" Looking at me working in caps-man trying to out think a problem that shouldn't be there.

Caps-Man CONTROLS Mikrotik ACCESS POINTS. And the caps have to use the proprietary wireless drivers, not the WAVE2 upgraded ones.

MikroTik certainly did send out cAP XL devices as much as were available. Unfortunately, like you discussed, a lot of things in the electronics world go slower than usual in this period.
No answer to your question? How to write posts

thank you for answer but it looks to me a bit too much time for just a shortage. I've been waiting for it from december, and now they said me may! (maybe, probably not even..)
If there is that shortage, why other standard Mikrotik device still available? Nobody buy them? Looks to me a misorganization

I ordered 3 weeks ago a stupid HP multifunctional printer.
Earliest delivery time beginning March!
Car producers are shipping cars without certain chips because it's simply missing.

We are far from out of the woods as far as this shortage is concerned.

I've had / installed about 20 cAP AC XLs. Yes they are out of stock now, but they were available..
Certainly not 'advertised before being available'.

Installers actually liked the mount better.

Its LOUDER than a cAP AC. Devices definitely "heard it" farther away.
