Re: PBR issues with 2 eth in same lan

no, of course they're not bridged, if they where bridged it would be like having two ip on the same interface which is where the problem originated.

if each of the etherx has an ip address assigned to it, how come they aren't ip interfaces?

RB450 ports as switch?

How are the ports handled in the RB450? does ROS sees all 5 ports as eth0~4 ? can the ports be configured as switch?(either all of them together or selectively). What happens if i set all ports as switch with the "eth0" in ROS(does eth0 connects "internally" to the switch, thus acting as a "sixth" p...

CCQ is usually high 80's to 100% both ways when running 35mbit transfers. whilst transferring, noise floor doesn't moves(i've tried changing freq across the board no difference). frames vs HW frames doesn't shows much skew either, and signal str is -68~ (again, all this parameters are on a good day ...

i hope someone from mikrotik sees this threads and sheds some light on the matter. my guess is that since the wireless interface MTU, the WDS MTU and the bridge MTU are all 1500 bytes, then the nstreme framer will never work(or doesn't appears to work).

Re: Fastest processor machine for v2.9.x?

if you're using a OLD dual core P4, then a C2D like the E8400 series would be MUCH MUCH faster(it's integer performance is on the roof compared to the shitty netburst arch). dunno is 2.9.15 takes full advantage of the C2D, but even if it doesn't, a 2.4G E8400~ is much much faster than a 3GHz P4 dual...

thanks for the answer, what i did was to not assign any IP to the bridge(only IP assigned is ether1) and it apparently works as it should, bridge connectes, traffic passes.

is there a need to put an IP address on the bridge itself for my P2P scenario?
