Netgear Nighthawk MR1100ATT -- usb lte tethering support in hAP AC?

I have two LTE Wifi HotSpots, a Verizon MIFI7730L which I have successfully used with USB and an ATT Netgear Nighthawk MR1100 that I cannot seem to get the hAP ac to recognize via USB. Is there support for LTE access via USB tethering for the Nighthawk in the latest RouterOS version?

Thanks!

Mitch

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

I haven't seen a problem yet, but my network is all MikroTik devices (except for a few dumb switches that will gradually be replaced)

Anyway, thank you very much for your help on this!!

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

What should be done if let's say ether4 interface (of csr125-24g-1s) should be also added to vlan guest. The simplest thing would be to add ether4 to bridge-vlan but I think according to this it is not recommended. What about: - in Switch->Port->ether4 set "vlan header" to "always strip" and set "d...

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

Ok, my bridge is set up as set use-ip-firewall=yes use-ip-firewall-for-vlan=yes but I'm moving traffic ok, but as I said there was a rule that dropped all !LAN which caused problems. I think I will have to make a 'CORE' list for the internal network so the firewall rules blocking 192.168.1.x <-> 192...

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

Thanks for the info! I have everything working now, let me export the settings and compare them to your notes regarding the firewall. I had to rearrange some of the firewall rules because the guest-bridge and vlan were not on the 'LAN' list -- I made a separate list called 'GUEST' to allow blocking ...

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

SO a couple of questions to help me understand this configuration. I'm assuming that setting the VLAN tags on the physical interfaces tells the unit to tag all packets entering the device through that interface? It looks like I cannot set that on the hardwired ethernet interfaces though so there mus...

Thanks! I will give that a try tomorrow evening and see how it goes.

EDIT: are you saying I should leave the cloud switch configuration as is?

Re: Question about using VLANs to set up a guest network [SOLVED]

Thanks -- I have this set up, but when associating with the wlan interfaces on the RB952, I still get a DHCP address in the internal network subnet. Is there more I have to do on the RB952 to insure only the guest network is accessible via the wlan interfaces? ah -- ok I have wlan1 not on the untagg...

Re: Providing two isolated WLAN SSIDs on same hAP AC using virtual WLAN [SOLVED]

Well I got it working, my mistake was not making the ether3 port that was slaved to ether2 its own master, then the bridging through bridge-guest worked fine and properly isolated the networks. The DHCP server issue resolved itself (I guess that was user error) after I reset and reconfigured everyth...

Re: Providing two isolated WLAN SSIDs on same hAP AC using virtual WLAN [SOLVED]

quick follow up question -- given that the network isolation has to be done through the firewall rules is there really any point to having separate bridges for the two networks -- clearly I am not fully understanding the purpose of a bridge!

Re: Providing two isolated WLAN SSIDs on same hAP AC using virtual WLAN [SOLVED]

Thanks for your note! -- the DHCP servers in both cases are further back in the network and not on the hAP AC itself. Not sure why one is able to respond to clients through ether2<->default bridge<->wlan(1,2) where as the other is not able to respond to clients through ether3<->bridge-guest<->wlan3 ...

Hello! -- I am trying to replace two old access points on two physically separate networks with a single hAP AC unit hosting two SSIDs. One network is our internal net (I'll call it corenet) and one is our guest network (I'll call it guestnet). I have our corenet plugged into ether2 on the hAP AC an...

Re: LTE bridge mode - double NAT?

I was wondering this myself -- but couldn't you bridge from the lte1 device to the rest of the hAP interfaces so each connected device gets its IP from the LTE provider? In my case a MiFi7730L which supposedly allows 15 clients on WiFi, if it allows that many over the USB interface I would think thi...

Re: hAP ac with Verizon MiFi7730L -- is this a supported device?

Looks like I was missing a step -- adding a NAT to the LTE interface. After doing that, I can reach the internet via the MiFi7730L without any problems.
