Re: Netinstall macOS? [SOLVED]

Just to close this off, I installed Windows 10 using Bootcamp and ran a Netinstall (with some difficulty... that button is hard to keep pressed for 15 seconds, and I had to close and re-open the client... and then I had to manually power cycle the router a couple of times), and the packages are back...

Re: Netinstall macOS? [SOLVED]

I'm on Catalina... Winbox4mac just doesn't open.

I think it'll have to be Bootcamp... which is a bit of a pain. Oh well.

Netinstall macOS? [SOLVED]

Hi, For some reason known only to the non-sentient microcode of my hAP-ac2, every package has been duplicated and I can't upgrade or downgrade or do anything to do with the packages... I've read that a netinstall will almost certainly fix the problem, but it would appear that the netinstall utility ...

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

I've since reset the MTU, it was set to a lower value as I have an L2TP tunnel I put everything through, but I've disabled it while I figure out why the bandwidth was so low.

Setting flow-control to off seems to have solved it... I have no idea why it wasn't off, is off the default?

Thanks!

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

I'm using two speedtest websites, the same ones I used when testing with the computer directly connected to the room's ethernet port. The only other traffic on the hAP would be some background WiFi traffic.

500Mbps is significantly less than 2Gbps, so I doubt I'm reaching that limit.

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Ok, this is strange. I used the profiler, and the total value peaked at only 10%. Same when I used the CPU resource command as well (peak at just over 10% usage)...

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Great, now we can see what you have configured. To understand your problem better there are a few things you need to clear up: - Are you connected to one of the ether2-ether5 ports and you are trying to measure the internet speed or are you testing your internal network speed? - Since you have "use...

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Nobody is able to guess what you have really configured. If you refuse to post the actual configuration everyone will be only able to guess thus consuming your and our time.. So please be so gentle and post your configuration export (/export hide-sensitive) Apologies, didn't know of the export feat...

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Pretty simple (mostly default) configuration, ethernet cable connecting the building's ethernet port to the router's WAN port (Ether1), and another cable connecting the router to my MacBook, with a firewall rule to Masquerade the IP through the WAN port. All ethernet ports are showing as connected a...

Re: Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Hmm, I've tested both cables I'm using by hooking them directly to the ethernet port, and I get >400Mbps, but only ~200Mbps through the hAP ac^2... the online performance testing shows a much higher routing speed, so I have no idea what the bottleneck is here...

Hardware bandwidth limitation? [SOLVED]

Hi,

Does anyone know if the hardware in a hAP ac^2 is capable of high-bandwidth loads? I have an ethernet port capable of 500Mbps, and if I connect my laptop to this directly, I get that (or nearly that), but when connecting through my hAP ac^2, I consistently get 200Mbps.

Re: Default firewall config query [SOLVED]

Ah, so the one on the INPUT chain only blocks access to the router from the WAN, but not to other destinations travelling via the router. Makes sense now, thanks!

Re: Tunnel traffic through VPN

RouterOS supports creating VPN tunnels, I know L2TP is supported as I use it myself. As long as a standard (though perhaps not bleeding edge) protocol is used, it'll be supported.

Alternatively, you could just block the relevant bittorrent protocol ports using the RouterOS firewall.

Default firewall config query [SOLVED]

Hi, I'm curious as to how the [icode]defconf: drop all not coming from LAN[/icode] and [icode]defconf: drop all from WAN not DSTNATed[/icode] firewall rules interact - surely the latter (which is placed as the last rule) will never be reached, as any WAN packets will have been dropped by the former?...
