Re: share usb stick as cloud storage

You could always enable the VPN feature of the router and VPN in to your network then access the USB through SMB.

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Second Mikrotik IP address

The purpose, for the third time, is to find out what IP address a second mikrotik takes if the first one uses the default 192.168.88.1. Since you have to configure the hAP AC before it can be used you have to have an IP to connect to it to configure it. 192.168.88.1 As far as I know, when using the...

Re: RE: Re: Second Mikrotik IP address

Do not care about the modem. It is a supplier's device out of your network. Just let it have different network address than your network range and it will be accessible from the internal network by the outbound masquerade nat rule.
Ok. Thanks.

Let the modem operate in transparent bridge mode and do the rest in your own router as you wish. If there are any obstacles from the isp, change the provider...
That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of trying that. But wouldn't that place the modem in the DMZ?

Re: Capsman with hAP ac lite RB952 for a beginner?

I can't answer the power question but I can answer the others. All of the hAPs can be used as AP but depending on the answer to the powerful enough question it might not be advised. Yup you can also use it as a switch. Yes you can also set this up with an extra SSID for guests by creating a virtual ...

Was trying to help you understand the issue, but it seems you are too arrogant. What was the purpose of your post anyway, if you "don't have problems anymore"? You came off arrogant to start with. I'm just reciprocating. The purpose, for the third time, is to find out what IP address a second mikro...

Re: RE: Re: Second Mikrotik IP address

Wiat a second, I will get my crystal ball fixed and get back to you shortly... 1. First of all, what is the firewall of your network? Is it modem, that assigns 192.168.0.0/24 addresses or is the one of your MikroTiks? 2. Do you have public IP assigned to modem, or MikroTik? 3. What do you mean by "...

Re: Same SSID for 2,4 and 5 Ghz

Your device will pick whichever connection is strongest unless it'd told to pick otherwise. Since 2.4ghz is a stronger signal at further ranges than 5ghz it's more likely that you'll connect to the 2.4 rather than 5. There are some devices that have 5 set as default but not all.

Re: Software for designing network diagrams

Visio is the industry standard but if you don't want to buy it you can use draw.io and import Cisco logos for free.

Second Mikrotik IP address

I have 2 Mikrotiks hAP AC sitting behind my ISP modem. It goes Modem -> Mikrotik -> Mikrotik The first mikrotik took on the address of 192.168.88.1 (like it's supposed to) but when I plugged the second Mikrotik in I don't know what it's IP address became. I couldn't connect to it with Winbox even us...

Re: RE: Re: Help getting to Internet over IPv6

Mikrotik does not support IPv6 NAT
you have just one single IP (/128)
Ask ur ISP for IPv6 PD (/48-/60)
Its my understanding that IPv6 by design doesn't NAT.

Re: amazon fire tv not getting dhcp address after lease expires on mikrotik router

So I've actually looked into this issue before with my in laws. It's definitely an issue with the Fire TVs, both stick and set top box. As mentioned above the Fire TVs don't handle DHCP properly. They should be attempting to renew their lease 1 minute before it expires but they don't. Instead they d...

Re: lost ping randomly

I will never again buy an HP printer. They get stuck in a continuous standby mode where you have to power cycle them to get them to work again.

Split network traffic through VPN or not based on MAC

Hello. Please forgive me for what might be a basic question, I'm new to Mikrotik routers. I was wondering if there's a way to make the router filter traffic by MAC address and send traffic from main computers (phones, laptops, PCs,) through a VPN while sending everything else through just regularly....
