Quote from the link you posted that answered your question.Hello, is the pwr-line feature of the hAP lite stable? I'm wondering because I could not find this feature on the product page https://mikrotik.com/product/RB941-2nD-TC. The documentation was not enlightening either https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/PWR+Line.
Thanks & best
The device is fully compatible with our PWR-LINE AP and the newest revisions of products that have a microUSB port,
such as- hAP lite, hAP lite tower, hAP mini, mAP and mAP lite have pwr-line interface. A simple software upgrade to v6.44+
enables this feature (supported by the mentioned devices with serial numbers that ends with /9xx). PWR-LINE functionality
is also supported by some of previously manufactured units - if you have unit with serial number that ends with /8xx,
upgrade to 6.44+ and see if pwr-line interface shows up).
Am I misreading you? I should not upgrade to ROS v7.x? Actually, i did upgrade the new device today (to version 7.6). And I planned to upgrade the second device, which comes this week I hope, as well.Just don´t try to upgrade them with ROS 7.x and do not expect high bandwidth and coverage.
correction:You should consider the hAP lite and hAP mini basically as toys. […]
The big difference is that they have only 32MB of RAM, and hence no space for a RAMdisk.They have the same amount of flash like most other APs from MT have: 16Mb. They just have slower CPUs.
The last version that works correctly is 6.47.9If the WiFi is weaker/unstable with v7.x, I'll do a netinstall on my new device and I'll stay with 6.x LTS.
Thanks, this explains the issues with the upgrades I had.The big difference is that they have only 32MB of RAM, and hence no space for a RAMdisk.
No, it is related to issues with the ROS 7.x WiFi driver for hAP lite and hAP mini.Is it related to the TX power setting, which is not available in newer versions?
Nothing we know about, and hardly related to TX power.I think I have to rephrase my question: what´s better in 6.47.9 wifiwise than with 6.49.7 ?
I've installed 6.47.9 on my new hAP lite (using netinstall).The last version that works correctly is 6.47.9If the WiFi is weaker/unstable with v7.x, I'll do a netinstall on my new device and I'll stay with 6.x LTS.
My pl7400 are rock solid since updating the firmware on them.Hi,
I have used a bunch of MT PL7400 (PWR-LINE EU) plugs with HAP mini and MAP lite. I guess HAP lite will work the same.
I have use 6.48.x and 6.49.x ROS, they all worked stable on the software side.
Beware however out of the 6 PWR-LINE EU plugs I have used, 3 are constantly going down and up. That happens since their first days. They are totally uselessly flapping.
So there seems to be some kind of HW issue with some of those. I guess it did not affect every production run.
I never opened a ticket or troublshooted them myself....
At this point any mikrotik with 32mb ram should be considered dead, for example I have 2 x rb750up, lovely devices for powering passive Poe to other stuff but basically dead in the water due to v7 needing at least 64mb ram.correction:You should consider the hAP lite and hAP mini basically as toys.

all SMIPS models
(if there are other models)
Not my experience.The HAP and MAP devices themselves are rock solid, none of them have failed (I have used something like 15 pieces). Just don´t try to upgrade them with ROS 7.x and do not expect high bandwidth and coverage.
