We have quite large network ar local ISP, we tried to use Mikrotik 
RouterOS but it turned out the worst nighmare. Even 3Ghz Pentium wasn't 
able to withstand 100Mbit link with 20k pps - during peak hours it hit 
100% CPU and so rised resposnse times too. We supose it is due to bad 
architecure of firewall portion in this product. Sometimes it even 
locked up. We tried to emerge hotspot 
[http://www.mikrotik.com/docs/ros/2.8/ip/hotspot] dhcp-pool method. In 
this case temporary internal IP address is given to client. Upon 
succesful authorization he gets real IP address which ir sent by radius 
server in reply message. There is also bitrate limit key present in this 
reply message.
In 1.2b6 I saw this new bitrate limit appearance. So I think maybe it is 
time to give m0n0 a chance in this big field play. So. my question is if 
it's possible to make almost the same configuration where bitrate and IP 
address is given through radius server reply message?
