I think I messed up my 450g. I have been looking around and cannot find a way to do a factor reset on the config. I was trying to get it to set up on the 10.0.0.0/24 subnet and everything went to hell now I cannot log into the box over the webfig or winbox. It picks it up at reading the default IP of 192.168.88.1 but will not connect. What is really weird is it is giving me a null mac address. I never configured that. The last thing I did before it became unconnectable was to bridge Eth1/2 and set the ports to gigabit (which they are). I am also not in possession of a null modem cable so that limits things.
I knew I Was going over over my head when I got this router but I figured i could learn as I go and make a few mistakes before I got her set up. Guess I was wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: While I am here I might as well describe what I am going for here. My home connection is around 115 down so I wanted a router capable of handling that. I already have a few WAP's so I didn't want one built in. After searching around a few guys recommended Mikrotik. I am a windows sysadmin with a pretty decent grasp of basic networking, no cisco experience but I can configure a medium office. I will be using this as the gateway and DHCP for my house with some port forwarding and QOS enabled. I might configure a VPN or firewall later but that is secondary. I would like to set it up on the 10.0.0.0/24 subnet for laziness more than anything (less typing).
