Re: Access to an existing Mikro Tik Router

Hi

If you're in the UK, give us a call on Monday - we may be able to help you get into the router and reset passwords etc without losing the configuration. But please don't play with the reset button, you may end up wiping the whole thing :(

Re: hAP AC2+cAP AC Roaming is a joke

No, with the more expensive systems that do "seamless roaming" it is the AP/controller that decides where the client is served.

part of the technical requirements for all outdoor usage in the UK is a 30dBi antenna. Firmware upgrades can't fix that. As a member of UKWISPA we took part in the Ofcom consultation process. The case was made that the 30dBi antenna limit should be removed. We can only wait and see what Ofcom decides.

I believe if you use a single name such as "srv" it will look for the IP via NETBIOS and will fail. If your server has a fully qualified domain name, such as srv.local and then were to add srv.local in the Mikrotik DNS server, I think you will have better luck as it will then use DNS correctly?
