Re: Can't get DHCP on non-Mikrotik networks

DHCP client gets all the information from DHCP server. So if clients of your MT DHCP server don't get default route, you should configure DHCP server appropriately. That's not the problem, the problem is the DHCP client on the Mikrotik device (NOT the devices behind its NAT) itself can't get DHCP w...

Have you tried Netinstall?

Re: Can't get DHCP on non-Mikrotik networks

I have the client ROS device set up as a NAT (in station mode) with its own DHCP server behind that "walled garden" and that part works just fine, so to the non-Mikrotik access point the client device just looks like one thing with one DHCP client. It can ping other devices on the local ne...

Has RouterOS been ripped off?

I found a very suspicious-looking wiki here: https://www.cablefree.net/support/radio/software/Manual:TOC which looks like a carbon copy of RouterOS' wiki. It seems like "Mikrotik" has been replaced by "CableFree" and "RouterOS" is now "RadioOS." Also, both Mik...

Re: Issues With Apple Device

Here's something that might help: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Wireless_FAQ Why I can't connect to MikroTik 802.11n AP with Apple Mac devices? This problem is only seen on Mac devices based on Broadcom wireless chipsets. In order to connect with such wireless device to MikroTik 802.11n AP m...

Can't get DHCP on non-Mikrotik networks

I've been having this oddball problem with my mANTbox 19s and Metal 52ac where when in station mode, they can't get DHCP on a network when the access point is not from Mikrotik. I tried everything including factory resets and updating to 6.48. Weirdly, they get DHCP when in station-pseudobridge mode...

Re: Mikrotik 6.48 and cpu 100%

Have you monitored the network bandwidth usage before and during these spikes?

Re: Spectral scanning in dual band devices

Actually, the wifiwave2 contains spectral scan kernel module - it's just not used for anything (yet?). But main limitation is the version of the radio chipset, AFAIK you have to pay more for advanced version that supports features like spectral scan, phase constellation view and TDMA/GPS timesync a...

Re: Anybody else experiencing DFS radar-detect problems the last few weeks ?

For example, another crew working on a near-by tower at the same location had their RF-monitors on their climber's gear show high RF energy fields , and as a result , they had to take a few days off from work. Well, that's the FAA's problem for using their multi-jigawatt radar in vicinity to those ...

Re: Spectral scanning in dual band devices

Metal 52ac does have ac radio so it doesn't support spectrum scan. I'd think so, but the Wiki states "ac devices do not support spectral scans (e.g. QCA98xx, IPQ-...)" and all devices with that chip are pure 5GHz, while the 52ac has support for both and has a different range of chip where...

Spectral scanning in dual band devices

I know that the pure 802.11ac devices don't support spectral scanning at all. However, some of them (Metal 52ac) are dual band and so support 2.4GHz too which has no .11ac component because ac is only for 5GHz. Do these support spectral scans for 2.4 or will I have to get some old 802.11n AP just fo...

Re: Anybody else experiencing DFS radar-detect problems the last few weeks ?

I haven't had any problems with this, but here's a tip: What I would do is get some cheap Groove (the 802.11n version) and use spectral scanning to see the exact frequencies and bandwidths they're using. They could well be using just a part of the DFS band and so you can change the channel used.

Re: 5.925–7.125 GHz - new FCC 6-GHz frequencies

Given that this will be branded as Wifi 6E, a subset of 6, and that the Mik has no real 6/ax hardware yet, I wouldn't expect it anytime soon.
