Reset mac-caching on capsman

Hello, is there any way to reset mac cache within capsman? Here is what I'm trying to achieve: I'm using radius auth and would like to use mac-caching to improve reply speed when clients move between different APs managed under same capsman. If client tries to connect BEFORE I've enabled his mac add...

Originally they were using for testing and lab, so before putting them on production network I did a complete config reset without loading default config. Now, ethernet has a strange behavour. If i power on the device, then I ...

MTU "caching"

Hi all, I'm experimenting how various MTU sizes are managed by my network provider (MPLS). I picked-up a generic routerboard device, connected to one of my branch offices and tried to ping a remote destination using 1501 bytes with DF bit set. As supposed, local provider's router rejects such packet...

Top over rack 10 GBe switches

Hi, I'd like to move my datacenter VMWare cluster to 10 GBe. Switches will be used for VM traffic (NO iSCSI) with just VLAN switching, trunking and LACP (no routing at all). Of course, i need two devices for redundancy. I was looking at CRS317-1G-16S+RM which seems a pretty nice device. I'm wonderin...

Re: Use AES-CCM only (unicast & group ciphers)

Hello Scampbell, thanks for your contribution to this topic. I remeber I had some issues years ago (perhaps around 2011) while playing with unicast/group ciphers but cannot recall the exact issue. BTW, it was my first Mikrotik config so probably I did a mistake somewhere or I was using obsolete hard...

MCS and chains

Hello, most Mikrotik devices have 2 "antennas" (chains). Based on 802.11n, only MCS from 0 to 15 should be configured as "HT supported MCS" when using 2 spatial streams I noticed that Winbox allows to select any MCS without considering the number of "chains". However, in the forum I found that the b...

Use AES-CCM only (unicast & group ciphers)

Hello, I'd like to enforce security on my wireless network (about 130 APs) to only use WPA2 + AES. I searched both the forum and wiki but wasn't unable to find out anything about forcing only AES also for GROUP CIPHERS. Based on standard, "modern" (after 2006...) devices must support WPA2 which REQU...
