Re: MikroTik RB951Ui-2Hnd. Your opinions?

I have the RB951Ui-2Hnd. It is working well for me, but now that you posted this I kind of wish I had gotten the hAP ac lite instead. I guess I just didn't see that model when I was looking. No reason not to go for the dual band capability if it's available.

Re: In what programming language was Winbox made? [SOLVED]

Yes, I know MinGW has GCC, but in my experience usually people use MinGW to compile something for Windows that was originally developed on Linux, or at least with a Linux-like development workflow. Thus it probably wouldn't be too hard to compile it for Linux if you have already compiled it with Min...

Wait, you're telling me that it was compiled with GCC, yet there is no native Linux version available?! Seems kind of hard to fathom...

Re: DHCP Reservations Removal

First remove the lease that was pointing to the old server, then make the lease for the new server static. Double click the lease for the new server, and you should be able to see and edit the IP address. (You may need to close and re-open the DHCP Leases window after clicking the "Make Static" butt...

Monitoring wireless LAN traffic

I have a computer on my wireless network that I use as a backup/file server. I am currently backing up files from my wife's Macbook. Running nload on the server shows incoming wireless traffic at an average rate of about 10-12 MBit/s. I would like to be able to monitor the traffic from the router us...

Re: Help! Beginner

Just to ask the really obvious question:

You did connect your printers to the network, right?

And the less obvious question:

How are you attempting to connect to your printers, by IP or DNS name? Can you ping the printers by IP their IP address?

Re: Hairpin NAT is not working

DST-NAT rule needs to be to destination address and not mention the inbound interface. You need a hairpin rule as your rule 0 to go from src address your lan range to dst address your lan range and masquerade. Sorry if that doesn’t read too easily, I made a video showing this on YouTube which has h...

Updating the wiki

I apologize if this is not the correct place to ask this question, but I didn't really see an appropriate place. I found something on the wiki that needs to be updated, but I'm not sure how to either report it or get an account for the wiki. Specifically, on the No-IP update script page: https://wik...

Re: Ping problems in LAN with basic Home AP setup

The problem seems to have been a WiFi power management setting enabled on machine B. I'm not sure why I didn't have the same problem with my old router or why machine A doesn't have this problem (it also has WiFi power management enabled), but disabling that setting seems to have fixed it.

Re: Ping problems in LAN with basic Home AP setup

Okay, I have made a discovery. It turns out that I can actually ping machine B, but if the ARP cache is clear on the device doing the pinging, it may take 10-20 tries (sometimes more, sometimes less) before the ping is successful. This isn't acceptable, because I need to be able to SSH into B from m...

Re: Ping problems in LAN with basic Home AP setup

Assign 192.168.88.1/24 to your bridge instead of ether2 and see if that helps.
I tried that. Doesn't make any difference.

Re: Ping problems in LAN with basic Home AP setup

If I do arp -a on the problem machine:
router.lan (192.168.88.1) at xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx [ether1] on wlan0
Where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is the MAC address of the bridge. I don't have any arp filtering set up, at least not that I know of (that is, unless the router is doing it without my knowledge).

Yes, it is enabled. Machine B is #1 in the list below (its IP has changed since yesterday).

[SOLVED] Ping problems in LAN with basic Home AP setup

Hi, I just received an RB951Ui-2HnD and set it up. I have done nothing except switch it to Home AP configuration, set a wireless password and country, and connected to the wireless network with a couple computers and phones. I also did a factory reset just to be sure I had a clean configuration and ...
