Replies: 3

Can't be sure, but the way it seems is that by default when you mark a packet it carries on as per 'passthrough'... If you then have an accept action (rather than mark-packet) looking for that mark then it'll stop, otherwise it'll carry on until it finds another rule that applies to it, where it the...

Hmmm... I upgraded my home router last night so I could make a start on familiarising myself with the new version in a 'production' environment.

The soldering skills we've got so it is a possibility.

Whether we'll actually do it is a different story altogether. It's something we'll have to weigh up.

RB18s and such...

Recently one of our clients has been having problems with Routerboard 18s. We've investigated thoroughly and found the issue to be with the RB230. Mikrotik agrees that the RB230 cannot supply sufficient current on the 3.3V line for the RB18s to function with a full complement of cards. The official ...

Here is an interesting change (in my opinion)

"added support for 0 and less tx-power for wireless;"

Can someone maybe explain what and why and where you'd use less than 0 tx-power?

It is possible.

If you enable the web-proxy and force everyone to use it, then you can log all requests made to the proxy and pipe it through to a syslog server.

Something for the RouterBoard package...

Possibly a way to access the Routerboard 200 series BIOS from within the RouterOS, so you can change the boot priority/device if needed. There have been several situations where that would have be useful.

Of course none of the changes need to be made active until the next reboot.
