Re: Script/schedule to enable wlan1 on certain days

You don't need the scripts. Put the code you have in those scripts, in the scheduler in place of the code you are using to call the script. Keeps it simple.

Can you assign an IP range to an interface?

Is it possible to assign an IP range to an interface without having to add each individual IP address to the interface?

There is 3 different methods of removing interference. It recieves then all at the same time. It compares t...

Re: 5.4 DFS radar detect defaults to 5180Mhz?

So when you have DFS set to radar detect is it looking for actual radar or just seeing if there is noise on the channel?

Does it meet the current requirements for DFS in the states or not?

Re: RouterOS v5rc9

What wireless mode are you running? 802.11? yes That is the problem, unless the MT guys have fixed it with the RC9 release the NV2 package won't run in 802.11 mode without the AP interface locking up after a random period of time. What happens is the AP will stop transmitting data, the clients stay...

Re: RouterOS v5rc9

Major problem (for me) with 5.0rc9 Upgraded all highsites + clients. Some (especially older RB133C3) connect, but can't ping. If you MAC telnet to it it asks for UN/PW but then disconnect before you get the MT splash text. Downgrade AP to 4.16, the client (RB133C3) is still on R5.0rc9 but now works...

Re: NV2 Real life PTMP migration and stability

same results here. I did 18mbps and higher also in order for nv2 to work. Same results on the rb133's also. Once there online you really cant manage the rb133 to well but it works. You can NOT get full bandwidth with nv2 on the rb133 but however it is still very good. I have the NV2 package running...

Re: NV2 Real life PTMP migration and stability

Can't help you much then, NV2 package does some strange stuff with signal levels and noise levels when you have a value entered into the noise floor threshold. So you have set them? Any guideline? I never set these. Should I? If you are running the 4.16 NV2 package my advice is to not set them at a...

Re: How make redundant link network?

With that setup it looks like you would be best off running WDS with RSTP bridging or in mesh mode. There are some examples on the Wiki.

Re: Whitespace

I was just curious if anyone is aware of anyone currently making, or who will be making whitespace enabled radio cards for MikroTik devices?
I think UBNT is making a card but I can't remember for sure you may want to check their site.

Re: SR71-A Problems

I am a little reluctant to try it again since this is a production network. The weird thing is I have other access points with the same config that don't have the problem nearly as often as the others. I believe it has something to do with the amount of interference as this is a very high noise env...

Re: SR71-A Problems

Are you running in 802.11 mode, Nstreme or NV2? I have ran into this bug while running 4.16 with the Nstreme package in 802.11. Clients show registered in the registration table but won't pass any traffic, disable and re-enable the AP interface brings them back for a random amount of time. As far as...

Thanks for the Ideas.. Yes, you could do that with address lists. They even take ranges. See below: /ip firewall address-list add list=pool1 address=192.168.0.2-192.168.0.6 add list=pool2 address=192.168.0.7-192.168.0.11 add list=pool3 address=192.168.0.12-192.168.0.16 add list=pool4 address=192.168...

IMO it is much better suited to PTMP CPE device than anything. A level 3 license is generally suited to CPE devices.
