Re: [Feature Request] UPnP client for ROS

I support this feature request. ROS already has the dangerous UPNP server. Why not add UPNP client for cases where ROS device is not the WAN router.
This would be useful e.g. for requesting the routers WAN address by UPNP to make use of it in ROS (e.g. ping it).

Avoid double PAT

I already read many threads and manual pages, but I am stuck with one very special problem. Given are two independent DSL lines, each with a router (=CPE) I have no control over. Each CPE has one public IPv4 address and one private network (each) (10.0.0.254/24 resp. 192.168.0.254/24) for me to use....

Re: IP/Prioxy with ipv6 destinations

I know it's an old thread. But I would like to know about the status of using webproxy with IPv6.
Was the missing DNS AAAA resolution a bug? Is it fixed with the latest ROS versions?

Re: PWR-Line AP

It would also be nice to have a power supply (24V/48V DC) with builtin power-line communications bridge. So to connect any MT device (Router, Switch, AP, ...) to this network. It would have two connectors: DC out and Ethernet. Just swap the orginal power supply against this new one and connect the a...

Re: PWR-Line AP

Well, it would make sense if it would use G.hn for power-line communications and 5 GHz WiFi. So you could place one in each room and not having too much interference, especially when the device will have low gain antennas (less disturbance from other WiFi signals).

Feature Request: enhance usage of packet priority

RouterOS marks each packet internally with a priority mark. But it lacks useful usage of it. Please improve! Examples: In firewall mangle rules there is a priority selection, but only for a single value. I would like to input a list of values. In queue trees there is only filter for packet marks. I ...

Re: PoE from Cisco 250 series to HAP AC?

I will answer this myself as I bought this Cisco router:
Yes it works like a charm! Plug-and-Play although there is no "force four pair" option.

It works even better than with my HEX PoE. No overloads when using very short patch cables.

All my Kodi-boxes (based on libreelec) and my AVM FritzBox router do have iperf on board. No way to use BTest on them.

PoE from Cisco 250 series to HAP AC?

Before buying, I would like to know if powering a HAP AC from a Cisco SG250 series switch (e.g. SG250-08HP) by PoE will work.
Anyone here with real world experience?

I know HAP AC cannot do 802.3at/af, but has a "Force Four Pair" setting for PoE ports.
