Re: RB-493G Halt/Shutdown

... Today I am turning off all watchdog timers on the routers which have ever shut themselves down. I will get back with the results of that change in a few days. ... Well, I turned off watchdog on those devices which were shutting them selves down, and yes, they were powering themselves down. Not ...

Re: RB-493G Halt/Shutdown

first part of answer: tela b as described in manual: there are 2 things in watchdog configuration, one is internal check, that is enabled/disabled by setting watchdog timer to yes/no. it is not connected with address check in no way. It checks RouterOS responsiveness all the time. With time interva...

Re: RB-493G Halt/Shutdown

do you have any cards plugged into the router, and what configuration you have on it? check if wifi modules are not damage, on one of devices try to reset configuration and see if router still reboots at any conditions. A little more on this then Janisk; I have an RB450 (ROS 5.5) on my desk that I ...

Re: RB-493G Halt/Shutdown

What if this is not a software issue. What power supplies are you using? How many volts? Do a visual inspection of the devices, they all look fine, no damaged parts? Ok.. The power supplies are all 18v, 1.1 amp, 20 watt. The devices look fine. I have removed one from it's enclosure and it looks jus...

RB-493G Halt/Shutdown

I'm sorry for the length of this post but details are important in this question. What I am about to describe is very strange but I have checked it repeatedly: I have a link: RB493G===RB433AH<-----/------>RB433AH===RB493G. The 493s are router PPPoE concentrators and the 433s are mounted with XR-5 ra...

Identifying P2P

How does MT identify P2P? If I set a mangle rule and flag all P2P, what actual criteria is used to do that determine what should be flagged? Is it possible to be catching other stuff? I am asking because I think some other things are hitting that flag. I'm going to post my mangle rules and queue rul...

Re: XR7

It recognized it just fine. Just had to use the channels UBNT said to use. I could try other antenna's but don't know who makes them. When I did my testing it was in my lab using paper clips. That's what we use for all our tests. Thanks Greg; Here is the pdf for the 14 dBi Yagi from M2Inc. http://w...

Re: XR7

The antenna's are M2 14dBi Yagi's (Horiz Polarity). The noise floor was about 100. No other 700 stuff anywhere near my equipment. Can't remember what channels we tried, but I know we tried several. Has anybody else had any success with the SR7? The M2-Inc 700 MHz Yagi does not have the right bandpa...

Re: OSPF and PPPoE

OK, If I understand the documentation correctly:

A chain of "ospf-out" with action reject and a prefix of "10.255.255.0/24" and a prefix length of 0-32 would block routes from being published via OSPF for hosts 10.255.255.0-10.255.255.255?

Is that correct?

Thanks again

OSPF and PPPoE

I have a network running OSPF and PPPoE at each pop. I am currently assigning IP addresses via local IP pools on each pop. They are public addresses. We are seeing some route flapping because there are 1200 users on the network. Someone is always logging on or logging off. I want to add a non-routab...

Re: PPPoE issues v2.9.51 -> v3.10

Problem Solved... Let this be a lesson in whether to bridge or to route. First, however; a chronological "comedy of errors". Every pop in our network is a brouter. Each has three or more ethernet ports and almost all are on RB532's with the RB562 board. Each has a world, a pppoe, and a local port. W...

Re: PPPoE issues v2.9.51 -> v3.10

OK so we have isolated the PPPoE issues we are having to Netgear WGR614v8, WGR614v9, and WNR834Bv2. We have no idea why these devices have suddenly quit working with our PPPoE servers. In summary: Thursday (2008-06-19) we upgraded to ROS v 3.10 from ROS v 2.9.51. On Friday 2008-06-20 Netgear issued ...

Yes that fixed it. I got a note from support which explained that this morning. I take strong issue with the fact that Mikrotik changed the default behavior without mentioning it. When you have thousands of people depending upon Mikrotik firewalls world wide, and you *CHANGE THE DEFAULT BEHAVIOR* of...

PPPoE issues v2.9.51 -> v3.10

This is not really a Mikrotik problem because it is vendor and model specific but it did happen and is a gotcha that some folks need to watch out for... The Netgear WGR614v8 ( http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v8.asp ) router will not negotiate PPPoE reliably with RouterOS v3.10. This goes ...

IP Firewall Issues RouterOS 3.10

Last Thursday afternoon I upgraded about 30 pops from 2.9.51 to 3.10. Each of our pops has a PPPoE server and a local firewall. Every customer facing firewall in our network has about fifteen IP filter rules that prevent DHCP, certain multicast traffic, and traffic originated from addresses which ar...

Has anyone noticed the port priority setting in RSTP to have no effect in RouterOS v2.9.50? I had a link drop last night and when it came back up I could not force the router to change back to the correct root port by tweaking the port priority. All the path costs have been carefully checked and rec...

AutoSupOut.Rif Weirdness

Last night at about 3:05 EST every Mikrotik in our network sent an autosupout.rif file via E-Mail to our support address. We gather that this suggests a software failure. How do we read the autosupout.rif file to discover what caused such a strange occurance?
