Re: Huawei E3531s-2 USB LTE Stick & RB750UP

I was using an old huawei 3G USB stick with my mikrotik router, but it has stopped working after a power outage.
Looking for a replacement I find the Huawei E3531i-2 quite cheap and with enough capabilities for being used as a backup wan.
Did anyone make it work with a mikrotik router?

Thanks!

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

I'm afraid I'm far from home right now, let me put it in my todo list. Basically I followed the tutorials stated in the first posts https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=143620 The only change that I did was renaming the interfaces and vlan names, configuring a trunk port and finally addin...

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

The second should not be a problem: +1 local port to add to the bridge; -1 wan port and everything related to connecting to the outside world; -all dhcp servers; +1 dhcp client on one of the vlan-interfaces (on this device it is actually ok if the bridge is a tagged member for only one vlan - to ha...

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

Told ya! :)
My fault! I promise I tagged it at least once!

Thanks for your help.

Now I'm reviewing the second Hap AC2. Probably I'll come back with other questions.

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

Bridge BR1 is tagged member only of VLAN 99 ... but should be tagged member of all VLANs which have their corresponding vlan interface (10, 20 and 30).
Thank you very much, with all the try-edit-and-changes i thought I had tagged it.

Now it's working:

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

Suggest you post a working config for review. /export hide-sensitive file=yourconfig (also delete any WANIPs and gateway addresses, and any WIFI passwords etc.......) I maintained the original config, with the bridge "BR_original". When I move some of the interfaces to the new bridge "BR1" I can pi...

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

In most of the the cases when DHCP server doesn't work on vlans after initial configuration, the reason is somebody forgets to add bridge itself as a tagged member of all needed vlans, and as a result - all vlan-interfaces configured on that bridge are actually not connected anywhere. Thanks for th...

If you're coming from Cisco, this may also be helpful for bridge VLAN configuration in MIkroTik.

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

Thanks for your reply, I appreciate if you can show some working example. Following the tutorial stated before I can't make it work.

To clarify, I'm trying to configure an AP and a virtual AP for each band (2.4 and 5 GHz) on the HAP AC2s

Re: Help separating vlans for iot and smart-tvs [SOLVED]

After a couple of days trying some configurations and reading tutorials like this https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=143620 I can't make the dhcp servers associated to the vlans assign any IP address. Any idea of what can I try? I created a bridge and the vlans associated with the wlans...

Re: Using RouterOS to VLAN your network

Hi, thanks for the tutorial.
I've been trying the all in one (switch+router+ap) template but can't make it assign any IP with the DHCP servers associated with the vlans.
Will it work out of the box in a HAP AC2?

Hi everyone, I have upgraded my network equipment and changed my old home wireless router and access point with two mikrotik HAP AC2. One acts as a main router, connecting to the internet, and the second HAP AC2 has been configured as a basic AP, in the same subnet. The connection between them is do...
