Well its about time I replaced my router, nothing wrong with my current one (EnGenius ESR9850) just doesn't have a few features I'd like to have.
I've fallen very much out of the loop as far as routers go, so a nudge in the right direction would be appreciated
I was looking at getting the MikroTik RB951G-2HnD as it fit hardware requirements, and RouterOS like it could handle the software requirements (not sure though)
Hardware needs are basic:
Wall mountable, Gigabit LAN & WAN, 802.11 g/n, low power (aka no pc's
), ~$100 (the MikroTik is $80)
Other then the basics that seem to be on all routers;
WAN usage logs, I'm looking for both total usage for the month, and time of day usage. (currently I only get 1min worth
To avoid overage charges I want to throttle my connection during peek times. Though I can currently do so with an adjustment to my QoS settings I can not set it up to a schedule so it either always throttled or not at all.
I have a NAS that I want to completely cut off from the WAN without effecting LAN access to it (might be able to do that now but couldn't get it to work correctly)
The EnGenius allows for multiple SSID's each has its own "Connection Control Policy" I've found this handy and hope is on my next router
