Re: Mikrotik reserving some of my bandwith and I don't want that

I know that the mikrotik is reserving bandwith... No, you really don't. You said you were a big networking noob, yet you claim to know this? These devices are not suitable for people who don't know what they are doing. It's a switch, not a router. But you will of course know the difference, won't y...

Re: RAW Table [SOLVED]

Elaborate what?
It's fairly obvious that setting notrack on everything that is NOT 10.0.0.0/8 following by setting notrack on everything that is NOT 172.16.0.0/16 effectively sets notrack on EVERYTHING.

(And then obviously the NAT doesn't work as it requires connection-tracking.)

No-one's forcing anything. This is just what you WOULD get, IF you were to turn off auto-negotiation, which you haven't.
If it bothers you that much, then set the ports to the default speed (it seems to vary based on model and software version).

If you want segregation at L3 then use firewall rules.
