I agree with Bryan, with a tweak. A trick I just learned with RouterOS is you put your core routes on the 0.0.0.0 range and add your PPPoE range to a second area and then do an Area Range in the second range. It will keep your PPPoE from sending routes to all routers. It will summarize them so

That's me! Thanks for the kind words John. I would 1st run a spectrum analysis to see what the radio thinks it hears. Channel select accordingly. In a high noise environment go the the advanced menu, air interface, noise immunity state control and set it to manual. Give that a shot. Mike

[WISPA] RB532 replacement...

2008-04-13 Thread Mark McElvy
Since RB532s are no longer available, what is everyone using to replace them? It would be nice not to have to replace the box again (using the 7x6x2's from wisp-router) and I am not quite ready to run v3 on my network. Any suggestions? Mark McElvy

I understand you don't want v3, but I have been moving to RB333s with 3.x and have had no issues at all. They boot faster and support more radios. RB600 uses same mounting holes and daughter cards. I have one 600 ready to install, but have none in production, yet. I put up a POP with 3 333s

3x is what is out. The 133 and 133c's are EOL, as are the 532s, 150s and for most part the entire 100 series boards. Figure you will have to start using 400s, 300, and 600s. We do have new cases, nice hinged enclousers and build to spec our routerboard series. These will fit the 333's

I agree. So keep doing that. Put the DC-DC converter on the units that need it and always send 48v up the tower. Or standardize on the RB600 series. They go to 56V. Dennis Burgess - LinkTechs.net wrote: Good idea! :) Dennis Burgess Mikrotik Certified Consultant / Trainer

Well, it seems a step backward to install a 24v to 48v converter and thus add another point of failure, instead of just replacing the PoE. All of the new boards only support up to 28V, so unless you are going to continue to find old boards on the used market, at some point you will have to

This is a major issue and all you can do is plan for it. The stepdown from 48 to 24 or 18 is much less of a worry vs AC/DC - DC/AC conversion. The loss should be minimal, and transformers like this, should not fail often. They are simple devices and are relitivly cheap and replaceable. I
