Re: Add DHCP server to VLAN??? [SOLVED]

Might just be a typo when you typed up the post, but the pool definition looks wrong -
made a pool for th eDHCP server
/ip pool add name=dhcp-pool-vlan222 ranges=192.169.222.100-192.168.222.200

I think the starting range should be 192.168.222.100 not 192.169.222.100

Re: CAPsMAN and VLAN without local forwarding

Hi Sindy, Thinking back, actually I did get the VLAN traffic back into the CAPs controller. I was using a CRS as the controller, and what I couldn't get working was the manager forwarding with VLAN's and wirespeed switching on the switch chip on the CAPs controller. I could have manager forwarding, ...

Re: Access to LAN devices

Hey Anav, No guarantee that this is best practice etc. I'm not a Mikrotik expert by any stretch of the imagination and I'm happy to be told that this is not recommended by someone who is, but the below is working for me and I hope it helps you :-) My wireless interfaces are managed by CAPsMAN, but a...

Re: CAPsMAN and VLAN without local forwarding

Hi, I could never get Manager forwarding working with VLAN's and in the end settled for local forwarding. If you ever do find a solution, please let me know. Whilst I would agree that I would prefer to have manager forwarding, in the end, having spent a good number of hours trying to make it work, I...

Re: haplite bandwidth only getting 10 percent of the subscribed plan

Hi, Just to remove any confusion, you may already understand the differennce, but if you don't, please make sure you understand the difference between MBps and Mbps as per http://home.earthlink.net/~flatlinecs/id48.html I've seen both written in the thread, and I'm unsure as to what you are working ...

Re: Access to LAN devices

Hi, As anav said, giving you a Mikrotik is a bit of a cruel joke :-) and quite possibly they gave it to you because they couldn't make it work. Your starting problem is that I suspect you have the hAP set up as an internet access router with DHCP etc. Assuming you have winbox access, I would sstart ...

Re: Cross Posted from GENERAL - Mikrotik VLAN and Ports for Client PCs - PC's not getting DHCP addresses on VLAN ports.

Hi, I've read this a number of times and I think I understand what you are trying to do, although I may still not have it right in my head. I actually do something similar on the CRS125 in that I have 3 VLAN's running on it (all isolated from each other in groups of ports) and a seperate router with...

Re: CAPsMAN via RouterOS on VMware

In order of question - 1 - I'm not sure what you are trying to do. I'm not a ROS expert myself, but there are a couple of options if you are using Winbox that would help. RoMon allows you to use one instance as a master and then connect to it and from that master instance you can connect to any of t...

Re: Capsman - what SSID's should I see ?

Glad to hear you have a solution working that you are happy with. I've not had the stairs to contend with, but I've spent the evening working out how to get VLAN's working properly with the slave wireless stations to get guest and internal access working on ROS 6.41. The bridge and the hw offloading...

Re: Capsman - what SSID's should I see ?

Thinking about it your solution is a little different as the CRS125 I'm using as the CAPsMAN controller doesn't have it's own wireless. It does seem from what I can see that the RB2011 can manage it's own wireless interfaces with CAPsMAN though. Have a look at this where they configure the RB2011 wi...

Re: Capsman - what SSID's should I see ?

Unless I have misunderstood the question, I think it depends entirely on how you configure them. I use a CRS125 as the manager and have a number of HAP ac's as access points. I deploy under the CAPsMAN configurations tab 3 SSID's for each radio (2GHz & 5GHz) one master that's hidden using the hide S...

Re: CRS125, ROS 6.41, VLANs

I wouldn't hold this up as a best practice example, and I'm sure someone will point out where I'm doing something wrong, but following is a working config for a CRS125 using ROS 6.41 with the new bridge, but also using the switch chip to implement VLAN's. I have stripped out all of the CAPsMAN confi...

Re: Bridge and switch chip with same vlan [SOLVED]

For anyone else struggling with anything similar, I did eventually solve this today on the HAP lite itself. In the end it's a relatively simple configuration, but with one key point. All ports are slaved to ether1, vlans 100, 200 & 300 are set up on the switch chip with all ports set as secure/alway...

Re: Bridge and switch chip with same vlan [SOLVED]

To rephrase the question in case it makes it easier for people to digest -

Is it possible to do both switching and bridging at the same time for the same vlan?

Bridge and switch chip with same vlan [SOLVED]

Hi All, I'm probably doing something a bit stupid, but I have been banging my head against this for a week or so and still can't sort it out. I have a home network with a CRS125 set up and working well with vlans 100, 200 and 300 just using the switch chip (just a L2 switch). I don't need to route t...
