Re: DHCP Offering Lease Without Success

For me the problem is with static addresses and seems to be connected with this option which sends offer even if there is no demand for it. Converting dynamic address to static makes this option somehow "checked" even DHCP server has it "unchecked" so if you forgot to uncheck th...

Re: Need help opening ports for Torrents on RB2011iLS-IN

Good morning, seems like just UPnP enabled does the trick ;) I've removed all NAT rules and got good uploads. Thanks!
UPnP has not worked for my Seeding. "No incoming connections" on Deluge. What app you using?

Re: I need open ports to work with qbittorent

Public address is something other than 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, 172.16-31.x.x or 100.64-127.x.x. The matter is complicated by the fact that it doesn't have to be necessarily directly on your router. ISP can have public address dedicated to you on their router. So the best way is to check your contrac...

Re: 802.11ax [SOLVED]

Trying to get this back on track.... as was mentioned, Wave2 AC can segment transmissions on 20Mhz increments. Ie, an 80Mhz Wave2 AC channel can be 4 separate transmissions to a client. This requires Wave2 APs though, so very limited scope of value here. Wave1 APs won't do this. 802.1ax and OFDMA o...

You can find cheap 802.11ac routers starting around ~$15, some are even dual-band. Tenda is cheap and they can be flashed with OpenWRT. Example search ebay "AC5 1200 router" to get a few. Some cheap routers from China come with OpenWRT from factory, some sellers on aliexpress are even mar...

I tried to pair a tplink with Mikrotik using wds couple of years ago, did not go well I did not specify, but I will - I am not going to use these via WDS but via CAT 6 Ethernet via HP ProCurve switch OR directly on Mktk Haplite, if the AC does work out well and I can disable its WiFi N and let HapL...

Re: Cheap APs & Routers to pair w low end Mikrotik hAPlite (N) Home/ SOHO setups add Wireless AC? (Non ubiquiti etc)

I was thinking something Sub 50/40/30 / 20 USD on SALE e.g. TP Link etc. (with strong AC) that acts as a Child/ Slave to the Mikrotik Hap Lite.

Thoughts?

Just got one, I haven't tested it out yet but I like the form factor a lot. It's great for temp. use / live event / field testing or troubleshooting. No need to worry whether there's spare outlet, great for IoT. If there's a USB port it will work. I did think about mAP but this has just enough RJ45...
