Hi all, wondering is someone can perhaps guide me. A client has an HP N40L Microserver running RouterOS x86 (AMD Turion II 1.5 GHz processor). They have around 40 users on a 300mbps uplink. They use around 30 mangle rules (checking content on prerouting) for adding sites like Netflix, Steam, iTunes etc to address lists, which are then blocked by the firewall. On the Microserver, the CPU maxes out and they throttle down to about 10-30mbps. I'm looking to recommend a new routerboard to them, any thoughts on what may comfortably perform with this requirement?
Should I jump straight for RB4011iGS+RM? Or would a HEX / HEX S suffice?
I run the same rules on a hAP AC^2 which doesn't blink an eye, but my uplink is much slower and I only have 4 users.
