Well, to start with, you do not need to do anything to pass a IP address over a bridge. A bridge is a layer 2 device and will pass data regardless of protocol, IP or otherwise.

A switch to band C with DFS and radar detect might cure it but obviously that's a big change!

Might be worth putting up an RB500 with CM9 card or one of the new OSBridge 5GHz APs to see if it's immune. At least then you'd have a fall back position if the problem gets worse.

Thanks for your replies. Umm indeed! The manual states that EoIP is a Mikrotik proprietory protocol so this is an option when using an MT AP and CPE, correct? I don't understand how WDS is applied to get over this problem. Can anyone explain more how this works? NAT would appear to be the cleaner, l...

Remote reset of RB500

I am considering deploying RB500 with an 802.11a mini-PCI card as an access point. Many access point manufacturers allow remote hard reset of their devices using one of the PoE wires which resets the device when grounded. Is any feature like this avaliable on RB500? I notice the passive PoE base uni...

If you mean you are using the actual interface address i.e. 192.168.1.1 as the target address in your simple queue this is the problem.

You need to use the client's address (assigned by PPPoE in your case) as the target address in the simple queue, and use one queue for each client.

Hope that helps.

It could be that you are expecting each interface to have it's own set of OIDs, assigned to the IP address? This is not the case. OIDs are assigned for the whole router and interrogation can take place on any interface that it not blocked from accepting input packets. So, just go to the interface yo...

You can use netwatch if you just want to ping a single client and reboot if it can't be reached. Or, if you want to reboot if many clients are down, you can write your own netwatch like routine. An example is here:

Aren't those ports used just for the SIP messages? My understanding is that the voice traffic uses random UDP ports and RTP protocol, which can't be detected in MT.

Any way to prioritise VoIP?

I am using a combined ATA and router as the end point on a SIP based service. Prioritising the SIP element is easy because it uses specific ports, however, the actual voice traffic uses RTP on a random port.

It may be that the ATA built into the 486 is only present on the WAN side of the device. That's the case with the Sipura SPA-2100 that I use.

But if the client adjusted for DST and then the server served this time, your server wouldn't be serving UTC, would it?

It probably doesn't help, but I have all devices on my network set to UTC only, all year. I found this is the easiest way to avoid confusion.

As above, this depends on what you want to acheive on the LAN side. If you have multiple hops you will need proxy-ARP on both interfaces.

I'm not sure I have this right but it seems like you want to 'carry' a public IP address across your network to a customer. You might be better off using proxy-arp instead of multiple 1:1 NATs, if it is supported by all your devices.
