Add additional ethernet port to RB411?

Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:26 am

Hi,

Customer is asking for additional Ethernet port in RB411U. It will be used for 3G backup with embedded 3G wireless card, so miniPCI-E slot will be full. Is there a miniPCI Ethernet card suitable for Mikrotik?
The solution should be delivered in one enclosure, together with Routerboard and not hanging on some wires beside enclosure.

I don't know of any minipci ethernet cards, but you can use this:

Some 2 etheret port capable device similar to RB411 should be good to have, but you should go for something in the series of the RB433.

Purchasing a 433 doesn't actually add any ports to the 411. I'm sure the OP knows he is allowed to purchase a new device with more ports, that wasn't the question.

Fine, but if to take account given conditions the RB411 is useless.

How you accomplish that? By some (innovative) soldering?

No, use the USB port. The USB port is in the enclosure already. Just consider the usb-to-ethernet to be part of the network cable. This makes is "all in one enclosure".
