Mikrotik design PAH AC:

Here people from Mikrotik not play with design, AC PAH is a simple device with a durable plastic housing. A housing of the same shape and meet it and the other Mikrotik models.
Routers Mikrotik, RouterBOARD that, that's brand product will be primarily functional and performance. The design remains neutral, pleasant, not kitsch bone, how see some routers on the market. Overall I like, I'm being conservative. The only problem with this design is that it sounds too generic, as if a certain switch, not a top wireless router.

Alignment Mikrotik a triple ring PAHs AC antennas, that is, MIMO × 3 3. That's not all, because we have the motherboard Connectors for connecting external antennasIf we want to do that. Although all 6 antennas (on 3Ghz 5 and 3 on 2,4Ghz) are internal, and a gain of 2 db, which gives me a better coverage than we currently Asus RT-AC56U, and ironically, the coverage is better and than that of Asus RT-AC87U.

Coverage Mikrotik PAH AC:

In my tests, made on the default settings, Mikrotik PAH AC was much better than Asus sites long distance. This is probably due to close 800mw transmitting power. I tried setting 30db wireless 800mw that, but I felt great difference indoor and outdoor settings core router is able to cover my yard without problems (small yard, 500m2).

  1. Cristi Hello! Yes, coverage is better because manufacturers make equipment such Ubiquiti Mikrotik or enterprise that require more in-depth knowledge of networking. Personally, before I crack the router Netgear R7000 (hardware fail) I did not, but I took the doctor a router Ubiquiti Edgerouter X accompanied by an Access Point Ubiquiti AP-AC-LR and I can say that having only one super good coverage in a house with ground floor and first floor (170mp) plus range quite high and outside, still 200m.
    In the future if you can even advise you to refer to other users and Mikrotik Ubiquiti products.

  4. Cristi are started in the networking, if I'm not mistaken you specified a tutorial older to be a decent router must have gigabit WAN and LAN hardware accelerator NAT, QoS basic.Dar needle and question me is that routers nat wireless hardware acceleration found that this is not stated on the website of the manufacturer and that is so important to your wireless router NAT hardware acceleration?

    • Each manufacturer names or function. Actually hardware acceleration is minimal software intervention, if it makes sense.
      Asus routers called CTF (cut-through forwarding) and the MikroTik called FastTrack.
      That helps mapid response times by eliminating the minimum of software intervention.
      We have seen the tutorial on Mikrotik PAH AC when I tested Lan to Lan, the processor was not charged at all. However when I tested the Wan Lan processor high enough, between 60% and 80%, because there connections to Wan Lan, traffic must pass through the firewall, and meet certain rules. The more rules, the lower speed and higher load on the processor.

  5. Hello Cristi, I said you did a tutorial in a few years ago to a D-Link Booster and bought 3 pieces. But time has passed ... Now I 2 days a PAH AC. So tutorial came very on time. Of course I am interested in port forwarding. But one thing I find very useful as how to do that if the WAN connection is not functional I enter stick with 3G automatically or possibly 4G. And from the logs would be interesting, I can offer. And that with Graphing site you showed it. I to D-link I mentioned I have a problem that kept interrupting few hours or minutes and then recovers. Although it would be interesting to hap AC. You and a pleasant and decent present setting routers and this is evident even if I had not said it. In 4 thousand views in less than 2 days is an opportunity for those from Mikrotik to keep in touch with you to have as many details. Congratulations and expect a continuation of the situation and how the commitment and collaboration is fresh ...
    Why not use the Romans good as Mikrotik routers? Thanks a lot
