Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Hi,
Its up to you, my only comment is make sure you put an entry in the dhcp-server network of either the subnet gateway vice blank, (my usual preference) or the 1.1.1.1 servers directly.

Hello,

do you mean like on the screenshot I posted Sun Oct 18, 2020 1:57 pm?

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

If its working, fine, then ignore anything I said LOL. I did not mean to mislead you in any way, that my setup is still not functioning. I believe I replied to that comment that is has been resolved :-D ... I was just trying to find out what is better, if just to set my preferred DNS servers in IP-...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Wait, say it isnt so...............are you guys now talking about DNS entries ??? ;-))) bpwl your fired LOL.......... I find DNS usage on MT hard to understand but what I get from this is. a. You can use the routers DNS service and associated cache to handle DNS, in this case one enters a dhcp-serv...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

but it feels weird having two exactly same DNS details on two places :-D The first setting is for the DNS server. The second is for the clients. DNS server forward setting is the default sent to the client when "DHCP setup " is used to add a DHCP server while creating the "Network" part, but can be...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Is the goal just to have router's ip there, i.e. 192.168.88.1 ? If so, how do I achieve this? Well if the client is going to 1.1.1.1 or 1.0.0.1 then it has the same filtering as 192.168.88.1 . I don't know how to prevent the client from doing this. It does this when 192.168.88.1 has no answer. (Tha...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Well, that is annoying but at least you have confirmed me it is OK. Can it have something to do with that the Xiaomi can be also accessed outside my WiFi and therfore the lease time is set to low amount? Meaning I can turn on the vacuum cleaner while being far from WiFi... Some manufacturers just s...

Oh, thanks! :-) Here you go... the whole cycle looks like this (left two last line from the old cycle as a proof) This looks like a perfect DHCP lease handshake. I think the client Xiaomi sends a lease renew every 50 seconds. Klembord-2.jpg Well, that is annoying but at least you have confirmed me ...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

BTW I believe noone answered me when I was asking if it is safe that my hap-lite has no firewall rules at all or if I rather should place there the default set (not sure how would I do it tho :D). Best regards You are just bridging in the hAP Lite. Firewall rules are not needed at all, and if they ...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

I dont know I am still not sure about how you have setup up DNS. What is the point of the static setting (tis from the default config and you could delete it. More importantly how is the user supposed to get to 1.1.1.1 or 1.0.0.1 Clearly you have stopped the users from using the routers DNS service...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Then the client might release the DHCP lease !? Is that request in the log somewhere? It is not the DHCP server which gave 5 hours and there is no pseudo-bridge repeater in the path (all MAC's do match) Where do I find such log please? See previous post The remedies are trial and error. Sometimes a...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

DHCP problem. Not easy to diagnose. I see a DHCP lease for 50 seconds.only. I hope the lease time is not set at 50 sec (it's not in the config file, so it should be the default 10 minutes. (May be set much larger!)) What I think happens is: If you look at the DHCP leases live assignment-status in t...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

"Maybe blind but I didnt see an ip route rule?" Don't forget what comes via the dhcp-client on the WAN interface. :-) DNS server and Default route are typical added then, and are not visible in the "export", but in the "print". Gives surprises sometimes if you remove or disable the dhcp-client beca...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Looking at the main router, I see you dont allow DNS via the router but you do have DNS servers on the net that you have identified. Maybe blind but I didnt see an ip route rule? Other than that nothing obvious I am used to vlans so these configs seem naked to me LOL. I noticed this.. /ip dns set a...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

OK well done. Except for the auto frequency, it is better not to trust the auto frequency. And with 20/40MHz in the 2.4 GHz band, you will see that two non-overlapping ranges are not possible. You then better set them to exactly the same (co-channel airtime sharing) , or use 20 MHz only on one of t...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Yes, the primary router handles all the firewall rules. I did not touch firewall rules at all when configuring the hex for a switch or for my capacs when configuring vlans and wifi. (Just leave whatever default rules are in place and there should be no issues). To be clear, the switch and access po...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Just some thoughts. hAP ac2 Your WAN is ether1 / VLAN848 /PPOE_out1 , and the DHCP_client is delivering you the necessary default IP route. Everything else is LAN ! So I'm surprised with : "add interface=bridge_hoste list=WAN" , as this will set severe limitations on what can be done from there, an...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

The device must be able to resolve hostnames, that's why it need DNS server. And it needs to know how to reach internet, and that's done using default gateway. So you need this: /ip dns set servers=192.168.88.1 /ip route add dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 gateway=192.168.88.1 Thank you very much! One last q...

Re: Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Didnt see anything off the bat that caught my eye, but when one has more than one bridge i lose the bubble quickly. It's because it's not there and that's the problem. hAP-lite is missing default route and dns. And you can't blame it on too many bridges, because that device has only one. :) Hello, ...

You didnt mention VLANS but if you go that route this article is very good on detailing devices acting as routers only, routers with wifi, access point-switches, and switches. In your case you have the second and third cases. https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=143620 Didnt see anything...

Beginner questions (mostly regarding wiring two Mikrotik hAPs together)

Hello guys, So recently, I have switched my ISP and they provided me with Mikrotik hAP-AC2 as my previous router-modem was not suitable for bonding. So I have configured hAP-AC2 according to some guides and it seems to be working well. However, I also need a secondary device for WiFi signal extensio...
