The process of upgrading RouterOS is very simple and, yet, is still somewhat confusing for some folks.Â I will attempt to detail some of the methods as well as some of the finer nuances here.
About 2 months ago, I began experimenting with an approach to QOS that mimics much of the functionality of the NetEqualizer (http://www.netequalizer.com) product line.Â As I was experimenting with some various techniques for limiting bandwidth utilization, I realized that the scope of the project I had undertaken was WAY more than I had initially bargained for.Â I dedicated more and more time to this project, however, because I was seeing some real results from my tests.Â While most of my articles here have been tutorial in nature, this one is a little different.Â I have a lot of time invested in my approach to handling QOS on a network and have made this a commercial offering.Â I will attempt to describe some of the functionality in this short article.
This is my first post about the Mikrotik Product.Â I will be putting up several examples in the coming weeks and months, so if you don’t see what you are looking for, be sure to contact me directly.Â Leaving a comment is fine, but not likely to be “answered” unless it is a clarification for the specific article.
This article is intended to be a short guide to help you configure a Mikrotik router to behave in a way that is similar to a soho router with a wireless connection upstream.Â This configuration is perfect for a WISP that is using devices like the RouterBoard 411 (priced at about $59), along with a CM9 or similar radio (about $40), associated power supply, outdoor enclosure/antenna, etc.Â The total cost of a flexible device like this is about $150-160, including everything needed to install at a customer’s house or business.
