this is not a RouterOS problem. What is that DOM you have? Also check for BIOS upgrades.The DoM isn't being recognized by the Intel 945 Bios as a hard drive. Changing version of ROS won't help that, will it? What feature/functionality/standard does the motherboard need to support to recognize a DoM? The Intel 945 says it supports ATA100. I contacted PQI support with that question but didn't hear back from them.
I'll try ROSv3 to see if it works with the NIC.
as there is no such thing as a `driver` for each motherboard, the only way to make such list would be to buy all existing hardware and test it. I would suggest the forum users to make a new WIKI topic and add successfully working setups in there. Something like these people have made:Normis, I agree... the DoM issue has absolutely nothing to do with ROS. However, the Intel 82562 not working in v2.9 or v3.0 is a ROS issue & having a list of known compatible motherboard models, BIOS chipsets, NICs, etc. would be very helpful as ROS doesn't apprently work with "any system". I know there is a HCL for 2.9, but it isn't detailed or complete enough.
Thanks everyone for your input!
I would say that a P4 2.4 GHz CPU is overkill. I can't imagine a P3 would perform less than 10mbps, that seems low, a Pentium 90 max out at more than 30 Mbps, even more with nstreme enabled.I would assume that they could handle the wireless requirements no problem - a P4 2.4ghz is plenty fast for wireless I would hope. If I had another minipci to pci card I could test - but I'm guessing someone here could chime in on CPU requirements.
