Re: Mikrotik wi-fi and Iphone = problem

The theme in this thread is most people showing their configs are using RTS/CTS. There are a few blog posts from 2012 that show that Apple products do weird stuff with CTS. I had major issues with Apple, and it seems they stopped when I stopped using RTS/CTS. So anyone having issues with Apple and ...

Re: v7.1rc4 [development] is released!

Most of us are more interested in when the stable v7 is released (with the newer cake/fq_codel supporting linux kernels), because honestly, cake is what everybody needs (now) and is waiting for. And, not unimportant, many other big brands are already using it. So, users are fleeing towards those oth...

Re: Mikrotik wi-fi and Iphone = problem

Latest version ROS (6.48.4) and latest Stable firmware (6.48.4), for a - RBMetalG-52SHPacn (only set up as a 2.4GHz AP) and a - RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD (as a 5GHz AP). Both wireless APs have serious issues with iPhones, iPads and iMacs (i.e. IOS), but not ever with android phones or Intel wifi laptop ni...

Re: Newbie questions for setting up router [SOLVED]

The whole point of using a fancy queue scheduler (like CAKE) on a router is to automatically optimize time sensitive packets that are queued due to congestion on a home network (VoIP, gaming, conferencing, etc.) and maintain acceptable performance while providing a fair/best effort to everything el...

Re: Interface queue type

Yes I did read the wiki page. Still no explanation on pros and cons of ethernet-default and why it is so much faster than hardware-only. I would, 6 years later, still have to agree. mikrotik offers granular control over what queue type (or "Kind" as mikrotik calls it) to use for what conn...

Re: Newbie questions for setting up router [SOLVED]

You should really take a few hours to read the documentation from Mikrotik and watch the videos I mentioned What videos? I don't see any mention of any video in any of your posts. And I see lots of mentions of limiting bandwidth, in order to prevent bufferbloat, in accordance with the ISP's package...

Re: v7.1rc3 [development] is released!

Hey MikroTik, how to use the cake-autorate-ingress flag of cake? cake qdisc defaults to egress according to linux docs. No way to tell it, that it is ingress instead. So if you set cake-bandwidth to 50mbit and enable autoingress: it works for some minutes to finally reduce to 1mbit approx. I assume...

Re: v7.1rc2 [development] is released!

FYI; Packages update towards the testing version for our Metal 52ac bricked the device. Have to do a netinstall in order to get it back to life again, I guess. Pretty cumbersome, because it is mounted outdoors on a high mast, which I can't reach in the dark, so I need to tell the users to wait it ou...

Re: ZeroTier added to RouterOS v7rc2

Why not, you can install iPhone Zerotier client and then join your home LAN with this. People keep stating how 'simple' and 'easy' it should be to setup a zerotier link, but I can assure you: It's not. And everytime I tried it, and by now that's about 5 times over the last 5 years, it did not work,...

Re: v7.1rc2 [development] is released!

My ISP tells me they fixed their bufferbloat issues, i.e. guessing they switched to fq_codel, or cake. So, it's time to also switch our mikrotik devices ques and buffers. Apparently I would have to upgrade to the latest 7.1 rc version, and then add the queue types? Is there a short how-to for that a...
