Re: VRRP trigger from lost internet connection

Depending on how your internet works - probably a Netwatch script that then modifies VRRP priorities to force the other one to take over Master Could this be like: watch 1.1.1.1 (or 8.8.8.8) on up: set vrrp priority = higher than the backup router on down: set vrrp priority = lower than the backup ...

VRRP trigger from lost internet connection

The Mikrotik Wiki describes VRRP as a thing to let other routers take over when a main one fails, but this seems too limited. By that definition, VRRP only works when the main router loses power or gets disconnected from the network. However, I need VRRP to trigger when the internet connection on th...

In the "ac" case, is it USB 2.0 or 3.0? The IPQ-4018 supports both, so it could be either.

wAP LTE6: USB 2 or 3 or PCIe? [SOLVED]

What protocol does the wAP ac LTE6 use for the LTE card? If it's USB 2, then that's a disappointment because that limits it to only around 300 Mbps. If it's USB 3 or PCIe (the protocol, not just the form factor) then that's great.

Re: Increase Output TX-power

Increasing the TX power so that "TX Power + antenna gain" is above the regulatory domain EIRP level is illegal
It depends on where you are. In the US with PtP links, the only restriction is that the output power can't be above 200W, which no Mikrotik device even gets close to.

Re: Increase Output TX-power

This is a little risky, but you can make the maximum power by doing this:
/interface wireless set antenna-gain=0
which fools the device into thinking it has a 0 dBi antenna which it doesn't. However, you might fry the radio by going that low.

Go into Firewall -> Connections when you have a bunch of tabs (like 50) and see how many it lists. Also check if you have any firewall rules that have to do with "fast path" or "fast track" because that's the key to unlocking better CPU usage in routers.
