Anything regarding this Eric?
Any answers to the question above Eric?
Or if you can provide a contact at Sitecom were I can get some answers regarding this and the upcoming N900 model?
Sitecom is very busy with the new boards and we haven't received any samples ourselves yet. The current high-end model, the Sitecom WLR-6000 (X6), can handle up to 35,000 simultaneous connections.
Thanks Mark! I will wait for you guys to report back your findings of the new model.
I am looking for a router that can handle +100Mbit speeds for fiber installations in up to 200 homes.
To sell this idea to the association of home installations in question, I would very much appreciate any info you can give me after you tested the new boards.
Last month Mark gave an interview at Broadband World Forum 2012 for bnetTV:
Hi guys! Any news?
The new X6 N900 routers have arrived and the Cloud Security throughput is 140 Mbps. The maximum amount of simultaneous connections have to be determined but it's at least up to par with the older X6.
Nice, do you also have info on Cloud Security throughput on the new X5 N600 and X4 N300 models?
Where do you get these?
Right now I use a Juniper Enterprise on the home which has Trend filtering on it. But I would consider an update if the cost was reasonable. I have a line on Junipers for wholesale so I usually grab those.
Does this support simultaneous dual-band? Looking at the manual you can select 2.4GHz band or 5GHz band:
The X5 and X6 support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi, simultaneous dual-band. Here is a screenshot from the web interface of the coming X6 router, model WLR-6100:
Any possibility to release a Stand Alone UTM ISO that can be installed in a Virtual machine or a rack?
Please sell this to Untangle and Zyxel USG series.
2.4 vs 5 GHz what is your rush, Boerenkool?
1. Penetration & Range
The higher the frequency the shorter the range, higher frequency have more trouble penetrating walls, ceilings etc. 2.4 Ghz the clear winner here
5 GHz has potential higher speed, in practise difference is less with current state of technology (140 - 5Ghz, 130 - 2.4GHz with 6xxN series). Due to 1, quality of connection with 5Gz is more likely to drop when on a study room or outside with 5 GHz. For most people this speed advantage is only theoretical (since few have an ISP with downloadspeed of over 100 Mbit/sec). Only a speed advantage when on optical fibre connection and ISP luxury contract (speeds of 150 Mbit/sec and up) and less than 2 thresholds (wall or ceiling) away from router.
5 GHz is the clear winner here, 2.4 suffers from interference of household devices (also on 2.4). Most obvious sources of interference: microwave and electronical garage doors/window sunscreens. This are not devices which are used all the time. Interference is a marketing mith, used by wifi/router venders and ISP to sell up.
I posted this Hitman UTM feature in the Untangle forums a long time ago. I think I saw you posting there as well?
My feeling is that they do not even understand what this feature does.
They seem happy with Clam and Commtouch, go figure....
I hope more people would post there to wake them up.
With my current router(Airport extreme with non-simultaneous dualband), throughput is higher on 5GHz(if not to far away, still faster than 2.4GHz on the 2nd floor), and I have a 120Mbit subscription so I can actually use it. (In fact I have never been able to get higher than about 80Mbit/s on wireless.) Also, when on 2.4GHz and the download speed gets higher than a few Megabyte per second, then it interferes with my wireless mouse. I can also see about 8-10 wireless 2.4 networks and there is no channel available without overlap, but I can't see any 5GHz networks from here. However some of my devices can only do 2.4GHz, so that's why I like to have a simultaneous dualband router.
Hi guys! I took another look at the thread and the info I could find regarding the utm feature. What I did not find mentioned anywhere (maybe I missed it) is what happens when a infected computer gets introduced to the network inside the router (LAN).
Is the outgoing traffic on port 80 also filtered?
Or is the infected computer allowed to connect to it´s malicious host/hosts, and maybe after the answer from the host/hosts comes back, the router intercepts the traffic.
I hope you get what I am after here.
Just to warn you: Ziggo is going to change all of its modems to modem/routers with 5 Ghz/2.4 Ghz versions. So that advantage could last not long when you are in a Ziggo area.
Thanks, didn't know that, but fortunately I'm not in a Ziggo area
Sorry for nagging but I start to sell some of the Sitecom products in Sweden now and the question pops up when talking to costumers.
Hi Esse, the router checks all URLs that are requested by the clients in the network. So if an infected machine in the local network tries to communicate with its command and control server on the internet over http, this traffic will be blocked by the Sitecom router.
Hope this answers your question
Need some help. I bought the new WLR-6100 X6 N900 router but I can not find the "Not Track functionality" in the router setup.
