Hmmm..... any special time of day you loose connection? When you loose the link, is there any kind of debug/log/message/status information on the DLink unit stating why it lost the link? Normally it would just reestablish the link in case of disturbances so it sounds strange that you have to restart...

Hi there With that setup you shouldn't have much problem, while i haven't done that many long distance setups though, the last I did was a 4km this weekend and that worked real sweet.. could even reduce output power to fit inside regulatory demands :-) anyway, back to your issue....

I think that this is another version of the problem I had when I didn't add the "in-interface=ether4 " on my mangle. What happens is that the traffic gets tagged with route-eth2 packet mark and the only routing rule you have handling that traffic doesn't know where to send the packets (it only knows...

valcoman, your ping problem.... have you done a dst-nat for ping to your web-server? I don't think that it will be handled by your connection-tracker / policy routing unless you run the pings through the MT (that is not having the MT answer them)... if you let the MT answer then the packets will nev...

My understanding of passthrough is as follows; All packets flow through each chain, starting with the first rule and continues through to the next rule UNLESS the packet is matched in a rule AND the passthrough option is set to no. If the option is set to no then the packet is kicked out of the chai...

Hi Mezlo Not sure what you are trying to do here.. .are you saying that you want all traffic generated on Ether3 (158.247.x.x/29) to be sent out again to the ISP gateway on that network? If so, why would that traffic ever reach your Ether3? Traffic generated on that subnet should have the proper gat...
