AC PAH review Mikrotik, router top unjustly ignored

Mikrotik PAH AC top range of SOHO networking manufacturer in Latvia. This wireless router does not boast a solid marketing, but can boast performance and functions away from Router OS operating system, which turns into a real wireless router router super smart. AC PAH review Mikrotik, router top.

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.

3 × 3 antennas + sockets for external antenna:

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).

Mikrotik routers in the proximity of the best on the Asus download and upload. When we left the routers Asus begins to lose signal, and Mikrotik your laptop is kept stubbornly.

  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.

    Very good tutorial.
    I would like to know if you can do a tutorial how to make an access point network that covers a large area with micro-products.

  3. Cristi seems you about mediaboxurile UPC? catch me tel u 84 6.40 Mbs Dow and considering that my band's 150 maximum net. You can do a tutorla them. As it's ok configured etc. They seem very good one.

  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. Hi Cristi, I told you that you did a tutorial a few years ago on a D-Link Booster and I bought 3 pieces. But time has passed… I have had a hAP AC for 2 days now. So the tutorial came extremely fixed. Of course I'm interested in port forwarding. But one thing that I find very useful would be how to make sure that if I no longer have a functional connection on the WAN, the stick will automatically enter with 3G or possibly 4G. And the part with the logs would be interesting, what can I offer. And the one with the Graphing you showed. At the D-Link I was talking about, I have a problem that it stops every few hours or minutes and then it recovers. It would really be interesting to hap AC. You also have a nice and decent way to present the router setting and that's obvious even if I didn't say it. At 4 views in less than 2 days, it's an opportunity for Mikrotik to keep in touch with you so that we have as many details as possible. Congratulations and we look forward to a continuation of the situation and the involvement and fresh collaboration…
    Why not use the Romans good as Mikrotik routers? Thanks a lot

  6. Cristi, routers tp-link as hardware acceleration is called nat

  7. And on the plug near the fiber why does the poe in? Does not go poe out until I feed my poe on the first poe in? I do not understand what poe is in

  8. I GREET YOU WITH RESPECT CHRIST! I RECENTLY PURCHASED A MIKROTIK RB952Ui-5ac2nD Wireless Router, SOHO 2,4GHz 802.11b / g / n 5GHz 802.11a / ac 5x Ethernet AND TO BE HONEST, I AM NOT TOO SATISFIED. I KNOW. IT'S SOMETHING OTHER THAN WHAT YOU PRESENTED, BUT AS MUCH AS I GAVE IT, I EXPECTED IT TO BE SOMETHING MORE GRANDFATHER. PLEASE, MAYBE I DON'T HURRY TO TURN IT A LITTLE BIT.

  9. Cristi Hello can you tell us if this router with the optical fiber connector can be set to use fiber optics directly from RDS without the need of their ont?

    Help me with setup on 2 antennas puct to puct plus router, all from mikrotik

  11. Andrew said

    Simple setting for 2 antennas to puct thank / model, RBSXT5Hac D2n

  12. DS-2CD2432F-IW, I have this camera and router MT HAP RB951UI-2ND AND I WILL COUPLE ONLY THROUGH FTP, I CREATE THE CAMERA AND NEVER START ONLY ONE MADE OF THE MICROTIK BLACK LED TO THE MUSIC HELP GOG HELP.

  13. I have a connect box and a hikvision camera everything is ok but when I connect the box in modem mode I mean I replace CONECT BOX with MIKROTIKU, the camera no longer works on my phone I took all the tutorials one by one and nothing. ,, CCTV Viewer ,,,, only this works on iphone 4 I can send mikrotiku if you need. model RB951G-2HnD… ..GOOD DAY.

  14. This tutorial even awakened my interest in routers mikrotik and even I want to buy one (only I have a few questions)

    1) Go directly to the rds of the rds without using their equipment anymore?
    2) I am very interested in L2TP / IPSec server and the coverage and last but not least the net (I need when I'm going to connect to the cameras and certain sites where they make changes)
    3) What do you recommend / recommend to those who already use this router or is it a better alternative?

    Respectfully

    Caesar

  15. Hello Cristi.

    We are waiting for a special category with tutorials for these professional routers, I recommend them.
    I have a network made in a hotel only from mikrotik equipment, routers, aps and management switches. They do not remain stuck, they turn themselves back in critical situations and performance is impressive, I guarantee for them. They have very complex operating system, it's worth studying.

    A good day.

  16. Capsman can only be done between microtiques or all ???? microtique base and the rest of the water

    Thank you

  17. I think a tutorial related to the same ssid to wireless and different routers would be welcome. Do not disconnect from the router on the ground floor and connect to the 2 router when climbing up, be the same ssid everywhere.

  18. I am also a new owner of this device, which is uncomfortable is that I can not reach the speed of 900mb !!!
    I had the maximum 850
    everything is default, I rcs 1gigabit

  19. RBD52G-5HacD2HnD-TC
    Maybe you can do it and a review is newer.
    thanks
