Re: redirect ping public ip to 8.8.8.8

What is the reason to port forward an ICMP packet to a DNS Server ?
Because everyone and their brother uses Google DNS as their default internet ping tester.

Re: WAN Failover with Cradlepoint

After capturing packets on the Cradlepoint LTE, I found the issue - the outbound packets from the CCR LAN going out the Ethernet interface to the Cradlepoint are marked with the WAN IP coming off the interface going to the fiber WAN instead of the interface IP of the Cradlepoint interface. The Cradl...

Re: WAN Failover with Cradlepoint

I split out the NATs as you said so instead of the interface list I have two NATs - one for the WAN side, the other for the LTE/Cradlepoint. Still no joy from the CCR LAN. Looking at the Cradlepoint I tried a ping from the LTE local subnet (192.168.35.x) to the CCR LAN (192.168.1.x) and it failed. S...

WAN Failover with Cradlepoint

Following up on a similar thread here: https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=154799 I'm setting up a CCR in a WAN failover configuration with an Ethernet connection to upstream internet and a Cradlepoint router with a Verizon USB stick attached for failover. All of the failover decisions wi...

Re: RouterOS-Bandwidth Test between 2 CRS328

Are you certain the fiber terminations are clean and free of any defects? Only time I've seen bandwidth that poor on even a 1G SFP was dirty fiber.

Re: wAP LTE US - Carriers?

We used to use Cradlepoint but there's limited space in these device boxes, hence the move to using Routerboards since we're tunneling back to HQ anyway. The LTE card is perfect for this application. We might try a MVNO that utilizes Verizon and see if they will be more flexible in their accomodatio...

Re: wAP LTE US - Carriers?

Yup... A static IP follows the Sim card. I have taken one Sim that was setup with a static IP and moved it between 3 modems. The only issue I could think might bite you... The APN for Verizon Static is geographic. If you went to another geographic area... You may need to change the APN. In the DC m...

Re: wAP LTE US - Carriers?

I know I'm a little late to the party on this thread - I'm also trying to activate some Microtik LTE boards - this is the R11e-LTE-US boards and our Verizon rep tells us the IMEI "pattern" that Microtik is assigned isn't "registered" with Verizon so their sales and provisioning systems sees the IME...
