Re: v6.42.2 [current]

Seeing as the only thing that seems to change between most versions of RouterBoot is the version number, why not abandon the stupid policy that brought this ridiculous state of affairs about and only change the version number WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING THAT CHANGES (apart from the version number!)?

Re: CHR still communicates with 169.254.169.254

If you add this:

then it only tries once and gives up (according to the counters on the rule).

Re: MikroTik - CRS125-24G-1S-RM how to use it as a switch the best way

It will be fine as long as you have enabled Hardware Offload on each of the bridge ports.
If you are doing VLANs, then you need to do them on the Switch chip rather than the bridge.

What the wiki doesn't tell you is that this feature doesn't work on 6.41 or earlier, so you need to install 6.42rc (which does not have a release version at time of writing).
This really should be specified somewhere.

Re: CRS112/QCA-8511 switch chip features

To get the most out of the CRS-1xx hardware you should use the VLAN filtering only on the Switch, the same as pre-6.41. Doing it on the Bridge disables Hardware Offloading and puts everything through the CPU.
You need a CRS-3xx to use VLAN filtering on the Bridge.
