Just in case I move away from Mikrotik

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/02

Mikrotik has great hardware, great firmware (if you have the right builds), but notoriously bad documentation and a not so great software release and testing process.

So I might consider switching away, so here are some threats that might lead to alternatives:

I use ubnt edgerouters, great bang for buck. My ER Pro-8 has been up for 8 months (no reboots) and hasn’t missed a beat, rock solid ipsec vpn. I looked at microtik, but found the edgerouters slightly easier to configure.

Acer B326HK – not finding a signal when the linux host wakes up out of sleep

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/02

Problem:

6 unlabeled buttons: I can not force the input to display port and monitor is searching other ports when host is sleeping. Getting no output when I wake up the host. 😞

Btw, this is for an Acer B326HK monitor. Other than issues with the UI, seems like a decent 4k monitor.

Solution:

my mistake was to use Display Port (Choice was DP or DVI) and the workaround is to disable power state changes on Display Port with something like “xset -dpms
