Re: Bonding experiment not working!

IMHO the best setup for "bonding" wireless links is using OSPF. You dedicate one radio to transmitting and the other to receiving and you get the added benefit of failover with OSPF. http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Dual_Setup_with_OSPF http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/OSPF_to_simulate_full_duplex_links_w...

Also make sure you're using the T-568A or T-568B standard. You can run into interference problems on cables much shorter than 100m if you aren't using the proper pairs.

Re: Wireless Mesh + Backhaul

Thanks for the help so far mate. One more thing though. When you say that .11n isnt supported, do you mean that it literally wont work, or that its more "use at your own risk"?
Mikrotik does not support 802.11n yet. As in it will not work.

Re: Is PPPoE the secure connection to use?

you can't use pppoe in a situation like this - pppoe is for connecting clients in one network. to join remote locations use IpSec, L2TP or something like that.
Yes you can!
PPTP -> EoIP -> PPPoE :)
HAHA talk about some serious overhead.

Re: How to force clients to use DHCP server

Set the interface to reply-only arp and enable add-arp on the dhcp server.

Re: how do you setup seamless roaming with WDS?

Do you have a network diagram? I'd make the WDS links over the wireless backhaul. Then your other radio, I'm guessing 2.4GHz, is free for the clients and you can use different channels. You'll have to change to a bridge setup.

Re: how do you setup seamless roaming with WDS?

thanks, does this include how it get the AP'S to push the bandwidth across the backhauls rather than going through the WDS ap's for traffic? Will each AP have it's own backhaul? For example AP1 and AP2 each have their own wired internet connection and when the client roams from AP1 to AP2 the traff...

Re: how do you setup seamless roaming with WDS?

1. You'll either need to setup static or dynamic WDS links between the APs. 2. No the clients do not need to be Mikrotik. 3. You will need to put the WDS and WLAN interfaces in an RTSP or HWMP+ bridge. Read about RTSP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanning_tree_protocol and HWMP+ http://wiki.mikrotik...

Re: cannot ping out to internet from lan

it started working all of a sudden i didn't change anything. So thanks for your help.
I was thinking like you had arp set to reply-only, so add-arp=yes does not need to be set on the dhcp server. Glad it started working.... for whatever reason.

Who even makes 3.65Ghz antennas?
3.65GHz is wimax right? Pacific Wireless makes some 3.3-3.6GHz antennas, so they might work at 3.65GHz.

I noticed on ether2 you have arp=proxy-arp. Do you have add-arp=yes on the dhcp server? Try enabling arp temporarily on that interface and see what happens.

Are you able to ping from wlan1? Do the clients connected to ether2 receive a default route from the dhcp server? For example: [admin@rb450] > ip dhcp-server network print # ADDRESS GATEWAY DNS-SERVER WINS-SERVER DOMAIN 0 192.168.88.0/24 192.168.88.1 [admin@rb450] >

I see no reason why the CPE couldn't handle the PPPOE connection, within our current network of 2.4 we use Tranzeo's for the CPE's and had all sort of problems putting the user's pppoe information directly in the radio which is why we have been strictly using the routers for that purpose.
