This review is from: Mikrotik Routerboard RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN Sfp Port plus 10 Port Ethernet (Camera) I’ve been through at least half a dozen consumer-grade routers over the past few years, some of them no less expensive than the Mikrotek. Most eventually fail on one way or another, and all seem to require regular rebooting to work. Fed up, I bought this on the recommendation of a friend who is a serious networking expert. The first thing you’ll notice is that it looks and feels pretty cool–like a small piece of industrial hardware rsther than some cheap molded plastic thing. It also has this little bitty color LCD display. You can touch it and it goes blank for security! NEAT-O! If you know almost nothing about networking like me and you go to the configuration screens you’ll feel sudden awe and terror. Might as well be written in Latin. Wow, there are so many things to change! Are there actual humans who understand all this stuff? I’m sure all this stuff is useful if you live in North Korea and are out to hack Sony. The great news is that if all you want to do is name your network and put a password on it, that’s really simple. I also figured out how to block ports, which is the fanciest thing I’d ever need to do. I wouldn’t buy one of these for my Dad, but most everyone else could figure it out no problem. Once configured, it works great. I haven’t reset it once, and range is appreciably better than any other router I’ve owned before. Plus, I feel like a total stud for having such a sophisticated piece of hardware in my office. Please don’t tell anyone that I have no idea how it works. Thanks.

This review is from: Mikrotik Routerboard RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN Sfp Port plus 10 Port Ethernet (Camera) This router does so many things so well (e.g. VPN server/client, multiple DHCP servers, WiFi hotspot with real login capability, RADIUS authentication, etc.) with RouterOS that I just couldn’t pass it up. This is the kind of router you would see at a small business or tiny commercial location, and it has the kind of reliability that you just don’t see in more consumer-focused routers! I’ve been using this router for more than three years now and it hasn’t failed me yet. WiFi is long-range, but cannot handle more than 30Mbps speed even at the highest level of signal strength. This is due to the particularities of 2.4Ghz WiFi, though this router will have no problem serving multiple clients at once.If you want more powerful wireless capabilities I suggest the Routerboard 922UAGS-5HPacD which I have also reviewed here on Amazon. The other mentioned Mikrotik router comes with a high-powered long-range two-stream 866Mbps 5Ghz wireless interface and I completely recommend both for SOHO-based networking requirements. The router usually ships with Router OS version 6.5 or later, but it was easy enough through Winbox (a GUI Mikrotik router management tool) to update to version 6.39.1 – the very latest as of this review. Same for the boot firmware, which often brings network speed improvements. For more information, check the change-logs available on the Mikrotik website.You’ll find these routers to be supported for years to come by new and better features! The upgrade brought even more new features than before, such as more stable low-range wireless communication and faster bridged network transfers. For devices that have low-power radios or low signal, like my cell phones, the improvements have considerably improved coverage and speed even at negative-80-and-less wireless signal (which is visible from the management tool as well). For internal network devices like video servers or file-sharing, you’ll find the new ‘fast-path’ and ‘fasttrack’ network transfer options to easily push 1Gbps without any drops or CPU usage by the router itself. The router comes with two switch-chips, connected to each set of five ports, which can drastically stabilize communication speed without any router overhead! This is a great thing for Internet communication because the router can max out 100Mbps+ with zero median speed difference. I have 100Mbps cable Internet and this router can push 100Mbps continuously to any Ethernet client without any problems or strange latency-related issues. The only issue I have with this is a lack of Mikrotik non-Wiki documentation, help system, or roll-over explanation but for someone like me who loves tinkering with all kinds of network equipment for home or business it wasn’t really a problem. Less technical people may find the router configuration daunting, though you can purchase books on how to configure the router or hire someone if you really need help since Mikrotik has its own certified people to support their products. The only settings I had problems with were getting the WiFi to work (you have to set it to AP Bridge mode, not Station) and getting my cable ISP’s modem to see the MAC address they needed to see so I could get a public IP (can only do that through the terminal console and not Winbox). The router provides 27-30dBm of WiFi power, or for those not versed in WiFi that’s about 1 watt of power, which is more than many consumer-focused routers (often limited up-to 21dBm power). Clients may not be able to communicate at that high 30dBm power-level, but it can definitely help with range if you have clients that do support it like laptops and external WiFi cards (e.g. wireless-to-Ethernet bridges).One router is able to cover my whole house through several floors and walls, and if you have several of the same model configured on the same network and with different channels the routers can load-balance WiFi clients between themselves with no configuration changes or downtime. The router has 10 Ethernet ports: Ether1 (the first port) is taken for WAN connectivity in the default configuration for this router, 5 Gigabit Ethernet and 5 Fast Ethernet (1000Mbps and 100Mbps respectively) ports are available, though I would have preferred a bit of consistency here. There is an updated hardware revision called the Routerboard 3011UiAS that has ten Gigabit ports and more modern hardware, so don’t forget to check the Mikrotik product pages for any new hardware releases! The Routerboard 2011UiAS-2HnD-IN internally has a 600Mhz processor which is absolutely great – with 20-50Mbps Internet traffic the CPU load barely reaches above 5% and even then that’s only for a second. With 100Mbps Internet traffic, the CPU only reaches about 25% load which means the router can support even more bandwidth! Official figures quote the router at 200Mbps max, but with ‘fast-path’ and ‘fasttrack’ enabled… Read more SteveA October 1, 2018 Reply 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful Great router, lots of configurability – if you can figure it (it will take work)., June 19, 2018 By SteveA (Santa Cruz, CA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Mikrotik Routerboard RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN Sfp Port plus 10 Port Ethernet (Camera) Oh boy, what to say. This is a full featured router, but you really have to be willing to learn some tech to figure it out. It runs RouterOS, which is basically a command driven OS, and you can configure the router in all sorts of incredible ways *IF* you can figure out what you are doing. It comes with a few basic cases you can start with, and modify from there. I started with “Home Router” with a guestnet, and then proceeded to make all my devices have a static IP onces they logged on. Most things (I guess) can be done via GUI, but the GUI is literally just that: It’s a window with a table of lines of things that you have to sort out what to put there. There’s lots of info on line, some good, some bad, most not very explanatory unless you are a network savvy user. By that, I mean you know how, for instance, traffic is controlled, how queues work (or what they are), and have time to experiment. I was hoping there would be more “example configurations” on line, and there probably are somewhere, but the forums at Mikrotik are most of whats out there, and it’s fair enough that “you are going to have to learn how to configure this thing”. To be clear: This is a very powerful router. Even in it’s basic configuration state with a few of my tweaks I find it worth it. But I still haven’t configured a few things I’d really like to because of confusing examples – or perhaps more explicitly my thick skull goes a bit numb looking at some of the larger examples (I’m thinking specifically quality of service here – if QoS is important to you you *probably* want to get a router than has a nice gui with this setup for a simple user – unless you really really want to learn how network traffic works). In summary: Pro: Good router for the price. I get good wifi service – and it’s really handy to see where network traffic is going in the router Lots of configurability – if you take the time to learn, you will be a router expert. Scary to look at logs and see how many login attempts and attacks get turned away The preconfigured cases are probably good enough for most people Con: Some features I want are clearly there, but oh boy I can’t quite figure out how to set them up. Lots of examples from different revisions make it confusing. You won’t be able to configure this exactly like you want without some elbow grease. Unless you want to get into the guts of routing – you are probably better off with a router targeted towards home users.
