You can do one AP and 3 "stations" (or if you want max perf. you put 3 dedicated 1Gbps links between the building 1 and each other building. For...

Re: How could I detect malware in my LAN

Quick thought: It might be your router itself that sends that traffic. (maybe you use old ROS(?) and its compromised)
This is not that unusual...
For router created traffic the forward rule will not capture it.

Use a rule on chain "output" to check what leaves the router could be going to port 449.

Re: Simple AP Bridge setup

You can use Quickset mode:
use the "AP" quickset and on the right side, select to not use "Router" mode but "bridge".

Re: Watchdog timer

Why are you not using Reboot function (proper shutdown) instead of watchdog. Watchdog pulls the power of a device, and will never do a clean shutdown! Watchdog must work even if all is stuck or blocked, unresponsive, overruning, heating etc. So its a HW power cut of the most primitive (= reliable) w...

Re: hAp ac^2: inferior LAN-to-LAN performance when HW offloading is used

100M, that is what I thought :-)

Can you check with the ETH port going to the PC (stream source) set to 100M capability only (not 1G) and HW offload on again?
Would be interesting to see what that does to it.

Re: Access control inside and outside of the NAT

I am a bit lost what you want to achieve from a topology point of view. Your block rule does work (the counter increases). Now what you want is actually to accept that but only on the correct times you want this to work (correct?). Basically you do not allow and then block at specific times, you do ...

Re: Access control inside and outside of the NAT

Yes with IP->firewall rules that allow access only at specific times. You define what you allow (LAN-LAN) or LAN-WAN etc. (via input and output interface or IP range or list etc.). In the rules extra tab (if I recall) select the times you want this rule to apply. If you want to restrict those rules ...

I am just guessing, has your old router 100M port and not 1G?

Re: LTE Failover

Have you guys tried this one: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:PCC
The example only checks next GW but you can add additional GW check and target hosts to ping as you want.

This one does it for me (DSL with LTE load balancing/failover).

Also for those who don't know anything a simple way is KID CONTROL (web fig -> IP -> kid control) which uses firewall rules. Allows to assign users (with specific access time) as well as devices per user allowed to use etc. (this assumes the device/user can actually connect to your router via Wifi/E...

Comment: In-interface WAN = downlink (coming into the router) Outinterface WAN= Uplink (leaving the router towards internet etc.) This is also why you do NAT on outinterface WAN and not IN-interface WAN :-). Then as others said, you need to mark connections coming through that WAN interface first an...

Re: Router Optimization

First thing check system/ressources (CPU load / memory).
Only if that is maxed out, drops could be due to the router load (which I doubt).

Check firewall rules and put the most hit ones come first (if possible).
But again, if CPU is not 100%, that should not be an issue.
