Re: Add second hAP lite as simple AP client & hub

Without configuration you must use winbox.exe and connect using MAC address.

Re: How to enable Webfig access from internet?

Do NOT put WebFig directly into Internet. Instead, set up IPSec/L2TP VPN and enable access to WebFig through it. QuickSet can set it up for you, just enable VPN network from IP/Services. IPSec/L2TP is built into Win10/Android/iOS so no additional software is needed.

Re: RouterOS v7.0beta1 (ARM)

No other instructions was given. Heard hAP ac² and some other devices mentioned, so I guess there's no restrictions on 4G-5G devices only.
Drag NPK into Files, double reboot, done. Works well on hAP AC2, no visible difference atleast now. Linux kernel has upgraded from 3.3.5 to 4.14.131.

Re: LTE based internet and WiFi network at home

Yes, PWR-Line products are meant for the situations where cabling is not an option. As the description says: Simply plug this device directly into one of the LAN ports of your ISP router, and add another one somewhere further in your premises. They will link together through the power lines. You can...

Re: Problems setting up cAP-ac as AP only

You cannot use webUI when you have IP-level problems. Connect ethernet cable between eth2 of cAP and your computer, download winbox.exe (and use wine if any other OS than windows) and on Discovery tab, connect to router using MAC-address.

Re: help to set ipv6 / 48

IPv6 has a different, more autoconfig logic. Having link-local address as default gw is completely OK and often used, so seeing the line "GW: fe80 :: 1" tells atleast to me that PROBABLY provider is communicating configuration wrong to customer. So I would try with usual DHCPv6 PD configuration: /ip...

Re: IPv6 and L2TP VPN

Hello, IPv6 over IPSec/L2TP works well, it gives you prefix, but not address, so it's suitable for travel router that will share the prefix for you.

Wireless Wire devices come in pair pre-configured to work as bridges, so you connect master instance to the router and anything you connect to the slave instance works as it would have connected directly to the router. Admin password is on the sticker inside the bottom lid. By default they do not ha...

Re: v6.42.11 [long-term] is released!

2019 and MikroTik LTAP still only connects less than half the times it's rebooted or the LTE interface is disabled/enabled. Or after a full minute of waiting. My 10 year old Nokia phone connects to 2G/3G after 1-2 seconds. Every single time. I’ve seen exactly the same symptoms caused by faulty R11e...

Re: LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

Any solution anyone?
External antenna is mandatory with LTE card. You can add 1 GPS antenna and 1-2 LTE antennas, so external GPS-only (GPSANT) or GPS+LTE combined antenna is needed. You also need 1-3 U.fl Female / SMA Female pigtails to connect them.

Re: IPv6 delegation from one router to another

In IPv6 you think in prefixes which are basically networks that are divided into smaller subprefixes: first 64 bits are prefix, second 64 bits are client. Usually prefixes are shared and divided using Prefix Delegation. Process goes like this: you ask prefix from ISP using DHCPv6 Client and in this ...

Re: LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

Try external antenna, does it get a fix then? How soon? Are you guys using the LTE modem? GPS-data in the log is self-generated (GPGGA, GPGLL, GPGSA, GPGSV etc) so no actual traffic from sattellites. I've run it on internal antenna for tens of hours in open air, powered from USB while driving, subm...

LtAP Mini GPS useless without antenna

Hello.

Is it an intended behaviour that LtAP Mini's internal GPS feature is useless without adding external antenna (= ACGPSA+ACSMAUFL)? I see GPS data running in the logs but have not been able to get any position lock. As USB port is for power only I'm also unable to add USB GPS module.
