You need to add default route for the router itself.

Re: Export list of online computers

another way, you can make a mangle/firewall filter to add src-address to address-list for any protocol and connection the make, and set any time for deleted from address-list (ex: 5 minutes). and you can do print for that address-list.

You need bridge network.
With mikrotik as wireless client, you can not simply make it as bridge network, unless you have access to the WAN Access Point, and make WDS setting, or bridge EoIP.

I think the uplink traffic won't be a problem. You still have enough pipe for 10 users.

For downlink, use the queue tree. You can make a parent queue, so the router knows that you only have 512000 speed. Put all other queue inside the parent queue. Put limit-at as 51200 and max-limit as 56000.

Connecting different Atheros Wireless Chipset

I try to use 3 different Atheros minipci cards. 5211, 5212, and 5213.
When I use them in 2.4 GHz range, both card have different frequency for each channel. Is there any way to connect these different card?

you can do in another way.
set all interface up.
do network watch for the first ISP.
if UP do script1
if down do script2

script1:
set default gateway to ISP 1

script2:
set default gateway to ISP 2

First, drop all drop firewall rule, and make sure that the default is allow/accept.
Then try to ping from a machine that is in same subnet with the interface host the ip you want to ping. If this work, it means your interface setting works fine, and maybe there is routing problem.
