Re: RB4011iGS+5HacQ2Hnd and 160 MHz

Thanks for your input. I wasn't asking about whether or not it makes sense to use 160 MHz channel width at the moment. (It probably doesn't, and I am aware of that.) However, I assume that I would actually be able to "see" a 160 MHz channel in a real spectrum analyzer, but I do not have one. Instead...

Re: RB4011iGS+5HacQ2Hnd and 160 MHz

So has anybody around here managed to use 160 MHz oder 80 + 80 MHz channel width?

Re: Issues with CaspMan switching from AP to AP

Sounds like your clients are somehow locked to an AP (through channel and/or MAC) once they've successfully established a connection with it. As the Mikrotik access lists generally work as expected, can you change the clients' config? What are your clients, anyhow?

Re: Yet another DHCP to DNS script

Okay, so I noticed that with my change, only leases that have their own lease-time set will be created in the DNS cache, so please use this instead: /ip dhcp-server lease :set ttl [ get [ find address=$leaseActIP ] lease-time ] :if ( [ :len $ttl ] <= 0 ) do={ /ip dhcp-server :set ttl [ get [ find na...

Re: RB4011iGS+5HacQ2Hnd and 160 MHz

5500 is out of the question, unfortunately, as there seems to be radar on the upper half of that range, so it won't start up claiming that radar has been detected. For the country, I have tried both etsi as well as Germany (which is where I currently live), again both with indoor and any installatio...

RB4011iGS+5HacQ2Hnd and 160 MHz

Hi All, I have been using the above RB for a couple of weeks now and am generally and genuinely happy with its performance. It's my main router and CAPsMAN for three other hAP ac. I am currently trying to set it up as a wireless AP with 160 MHz bandwidth, and that is where I struggle. Now, I have to...

Re: Yet another DHCP to DNS script

Good script! The only issue I had with it is that it will automatically assume the same lease-time for all (even static) leases, which might not be the case, so I changed /ip dhcp-server :set ttl [ get [ find name=$leaseServerName ] lease-time ] network to /ip dhcp-server lease :set ttl [ get [ find...

Re: hAP ac2 and hEX S configuration/setup problems

Whether you realize it or not: Mikrotik devices are fairly complicated to configure - at least if you have never used them before. I'd definitely recommend starting small, just set up the hEX S and see if it works (if you can access the internet when connecting a PC to it via cable. Then add the nex...

Re: Protected RouterBOOT

Did exactly the same thing on my two hap AC and ended up with protected routerboot 6.43.7. Did you reboot after "upgrading" the firmware?

Re: RB4011

Just got my RB4011, and I can confirm that SFP+ works very well with passive DAC. Of course I didn't use the Mikrotik cable. ;) iperf shows around 800 MB/s against my NAS, so I'd say it actually works. Also, I didn't see any flapping.

Re: WebFig UI sometimes incomplete

Alright, I see. Thx!

I'm mostly running on non-Windows machines, so WinBox is not a good option for me. Of course I use SSH, but once in a while WebFig UI is what I want to use.

I guess the next release will be out in a few weeks, so hopefully that'll be fixed then.

WebFig UI sometimes incomplete

Hi All, after using my two RBs for a few weeks now, I notice that every once in a while the WebFig UI seems not to work properly. To be more precise, I will only see the "Interfaces" page after login, but there is no menu visible on the left side. Also, the top right mode will show "QuickSet", even ...

Re: Channel 1 + 2 not visible

Alright, looks like that was the issue! I had actually assumed that MikroTik would automatically "know" that it shouldn't go below channel 1, but apparently it doesn't and will somehow favor eC against Ce. Setting it to eC (fixed) will still show the same problem whereas choosing Ce does make the ne...

Channel 1 + 2 not visible

Hi All, after finally acquiring two RB hap ac (used), I have set them up as access points in my home. Following best practice, I wanted to set one to use wifi channel 1 and the other to wifi channel 11. After doing so, I found that I could no longer "see" the network on channel 1 using both my MacBo...

Re: v6.42rc [release candidate] is released!

Is it normal that installing 6.42rc24 does not correctly create a bootable system disk when used on x86 hardware? Comes up with "no OS found" or such. 6.42rc15 was just fine in that respect.

Cheers
