Re: Wired connection was flaky with MikroTik hAP ac2.

Never had any issues with DHCP on hAP ac2 on 6.41.3. I suspect your issues have little to do with the router. We know for a fact that 6.42+ introduced new DHCP issues. So, that may not help you. However, you could either switch to firmware version Bugfix (uses mainly by businesses) or latest Releas...

Re: Wired connection was flaky with MikroTik hAP ac2.

Unfortunately, the issue became worse. The DHCP client on wlan1 keeps searching for a DHCP server forever. I upgraded RouterOS from 6.42.1 to 6.42.2, but the issue persists. My smartphone doesn't have a problem with receiving an IP address from the wireless router which wlan1's DHCP client is suppos...

Re: Wired connection was flaky with MikroTik hAP ac2.

I stumbled upon the solution to my issue. The issue was with the DHCP server of 192.168.0.1 on another router. It was not with the DHCP client on wlan1 on RouterOS. After upgrading the other router, the router's DHCP server started gradually refusing to issue DHCP leases. The problem was that old co...

Re: Wired connection was flaky with MikroTik hAP ac2.

Now it is clear. To temporarily overcome the broken dhcp client of 6.42.1, note down the gateway and DNS server address(es) you get from the other router by means of DHCP, disable the DHCP client and configure the hAP ac²'s own address, the default route and the DNS servers manually. Once the chang...

the DHCP client issue seems to have been introduced in 6.42 or 6.42.1. The improvement from changelog you quote seems to address a DHCP server issue.

Wired connection was flaky with MikroTik hAP ac2.

Today, my DHCP client lost DHCP servers twice. It also lost IP address once today.

I unplugged hAP ac2 and plugged it again. Now, it works again. I guess wireless connections were lost too, but I haven't checked my wireless devices.

Did anyone else have this problem, too?

I also noticed that 5Ghz connection was a bit glitchy with hAP ac2.

I couldn't hear any noise during any transfer in 5Ghz channels. I might have a problem with my ears.
When I leaned my left ear on hAP ac2, I could then hear some scratchy noise during a 5Ghz transfer.

Re: It is difficult to understand `Allow Remote Requests`

You are mixing up things. "Allow Remote Requests" simply allows other devices to use RouterOS as DNS server. Uncheck this, and RouterOS can only use it for itself. What DNS server addresses your DHCP client received is completely unrelated. You configure that in your DHCP server settings. RouterOS ...
