Re: new user,please help me

You are going to have to provide more information. Did you set the default routes 0.0.0.0/0 to see outside of the router to the WAN? Did you set a NAT? go to your firewall and masquerade the inside address. Read this: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/MikroTik_RouterOS_Frequently_Asked_Questions_-_FAQ#T...

Prism card problems

I updated my tower to RouterOS v3.rc3 recently. One of my cards is an engenius prism 2.5 card. For some reason, about once an hour, the card stops responding and all the customers registered to that card are lost. I can look at the card via winbox and if I try to run a scan or frequency usage, nothi...

Re: WDS - Seamless Roaming?

I would set up all your clients using user manager on a centralized router. Then I would create new "routers" on user manager and enter all your towers IP adresses. Then, at your towers, set the security profile to radius authentication and point it towards your central router. Another way would be ...

Very little noise. I sat running a scan last night at the AP side and picked up nothing in about 30 minutes. I then did a "channel utilization scan" and the noise would move from -105 to a high of -85 for brief periods with the more common reading been in the -96 region. I upgraded to v3.rc last nig...

Any recommendations on vendor / brand? I am experimenting with a couple of SR9s. The AP side has a 13db vpol 120deg panel. The client side (a mobile unit in my truck) has a 13db yagi and I get lousy reception even with LOS. 3 miles is the max and at -85 at that. I replaced the cable and checked my c...

I have a yagi antenna pointing to my AP and an omni on a diferent frequency to feed his neighbors as they become custom...

One way to do it would be on your ACL (access control list). Using WINBOX add the wireless user MAC address to your wireless ACL. Create a new Security Profile. Set the profile to "none" and check the RADIUS MAC authentication box. Go back to your wireless interface and select the new security profi...

Re: Using RB133c as CPE and as AP.

Couple of questions. I am guessing that WLAN1 is set as a station and WLAN2 as an AP. Can the customer in this location (eth1) connecting to the internet? Why are you bothering with WDS? Just set your clients to station and leave the WLAN2 repeater as an AP. Also, what brand cards are you using? Pri...

Re: 300 Clients 1 Ap, its possible?

Try this. RB112 or 133 with a single RB52 radio per sector antenna. 3 120degree 2.4ghz antennas and 3 120degree 5.8ghz. This will give you 6 sectors, 50 users per radio. Connect all of it to an X86 box running RouterOS license level 5 or 6.
