Re: v7.1beta4 [development] is released!

What if someone sells devices running development software. Mind blown. That is not winning prizes... But the big boys do the same. They even don't call it beta or development.. First Cisco Nexus switches: Total crap. First Juniper SRX: the same. Checkpoint modular firewalls: after all these years ...

Re: v7.1beta4 [development] is released!

Although I agree that the Mikrotik's betas are alphas, they are labelled "development". Both at the web page and at the system upgrade on the routers. It isn't even marked "testing". So, we could argue that the v7 should be 7.1alpha4, instead of 7.1beta4 - and it would be a reas...

Re: v7.1beta4 [development] is released!

I can uderstand everybody who decide not to install beta version, it's their gear, their time, their life. But why bitching about quality of betas (or lack of it)? Either accept the lack of quality of betas and proceed to test (reporting issues etc.) or stop testing and shut up about it. Because MT...

due to the work & study from home situation I'd like to set-up mangle rules to discriminate the different services for my kids and wife. One of the services of course is Zoom. Their firewall manual page https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362683-Network-firewall-or-proxy-server-settings...

Re: Improving inhouse speed

thanks again! my antennas are 3x dipole omni. On one box I have them in line, mounted on the back of mikrotik box, several cm apart. On the other they are in triangle pattern, 10cm apart. I keep them vertical ATM. Setting gain between 3 to 7 gives me the same performance. downgraded, run quick test ...

Re: Improving inhouse speed

yes, reduced on both sides, then set to nominal. currently rssi is 50db.

if you read my last post you'll see that it's currently very stable regardless if I use hap ac2 or rbm33g + R11e-5HacT as AP. Station is always rbm33g + R11e-5HacT

Re: Improving inhouse speed

I rebuilt my station router to use the steel box I have for this routerboard and stability increased. Then I put together second identical set-up (minus the nice box) to act as AP and right now stability is very good, ping jitter is minimal, but top speed is 400MBps which is still not what I expecte...

Re: Improving inhouse speed

Thanks for the reply. I know it's hard problem. Some details on your feedback: * lowering the channel width helps a bit with the stability (no disconnects, less speed fluctuation) but still disappointing, only 100mbps and CCQ is same as the wide channel * RX CCQ fluctuates between 40 and 70% — prett...

Re: wireless access list vlan mode & id function?

Thanks, your explanation makes it both clearer and more confusing for me. The confusing part is that you start talking about drivers tagging packets, while my impression is that ports tag/untag packets... Adding to the confusion is the dual nature of the bridge, but I got aware of this aspect in the...

Re: wireless access list vlan mode & id function?

The set-up where everything is tagged the same is experiment to see what happens with matching tags and enabled/disabled access list entry. My logic was it won't have effect, but obviously my mental model is wrong. Imagine the wireless interface being a standalone wireless AP with an Ethernet port, ...

This is the best guide for vlans using port and bridge vlan settings. What is germane to your questions is that the guide AVOIDS using vlan tags in wireless settings.
