Doubts about LAN configuration

Tue Oct 18, 2022 5:33 pm

Hi, I'm new to the Mikrotik world. I have a RB4011
for a small Lan of 10 Clients. I want to connect all
to the router (without Switch), configure it with Bridge and Mangle.
I read somewhere that the router saturates, or has problems, heats up, is that true?
Thank you so much

I need to give priority to the games, and some client does not use all the bandwidth
Thanks!

Makes sense.
I prefer not to use mangling when I can but when have single users it gets difficult.
If you could put users onto their own VLAN or a group of users with like needs onto their own VLAN, then its easy.
BUt you need a router with many ports or a managed switch to accomplish that normally.
