RB711 virtual AP

Has anyone had problems with virtual APs on RB711s? I set up a virtual AP on a 711GA-5HnD, and the client couldn't see it on a scan - only the master AP. It's the same setup I've used dozens of times on other APs, so I was surprised that it didn't work for me. RouterOS 5.18, firmware 2.36, licence l...

Re: LDP - can't talk to neighbor

...and the problem was a firewall rule that was blocking the LDP packets - a silly mistake on my part. Thanks, all.

LDP - can't talk to neighbor

I've been setting up an MPLS network, using "loopback" interfaces and OSPF to distribute routes, then setting up LDP, and finally setting up VPLS tunnels. This has been working perfectly so far, but I have one router ("kilbride-wt2") that won't establish an LDP connection with its neighbor ("kilbrid...

CPU maxed out on 493

I've got a RB493 acting as a PPPoE server and also doing some straightforward routing (static routes). It currently has 12 logged-in PPPoE users, and the CPU is running at 98-100%. I have another RB493 in a similar role on a different site, which has almost 50 logged-in PPPoE users, same firmware & ...

Re: winbox for Windows Mobile 5 or 6

A much more useful tool for me would be a mac-telnet client for Linux. I find the terminal interface by far the fastest and most intuitive way to configure a routerboard; I don't use Windows; and winbox is hit-and-miss under Wine.

Re: Help - NStreme2 terrible throughput

-Alignment has been tweaked for best signal strengths, which are -87 dBm on the 5.8GHz & -79 dBm on the 5.3GHz.
Those are god-awful signals. With antennae that size, I'd expect to be able to do a 25-mile shot easily.
