Re: Station Pseudobridge Repeater with Static DHCP-Client

@rplant Do you really need it bridged? I'm open to recommendations that will allow all of the wireless and ethernet connected devices to route Internet through the Mikrotik hAP ac3 via the iPhone Hotspot/Station Pseudobridge Repeater. It's much more reliable and easier to set up the wireless station...

Station Pseudobridge Repeater with Static DHCP-Client

All: I have a freshly installed Mikrotik Station Pseudobridge Repeater (wlan1 - 2.4 GHz radio) configured with an iPhone Hotspot, which I am attempting to route over a Virtual AP Bridge (wlan3 - 2.4 GHz radio). Nearly everything I have read suggests creating a Mikrotik DHCP-Client to bridge the Mikr...

Re: Mikrotik hAP ac3 - iPhone XS Max Hotspot Compatibility [SOLVED]

@holvoetn: I can just imagine you reading the following resolution thinking... I told you so. :) Everything I have read states that iPhone XS Max only uses the 5Ghz radio for Hotspot and the 2.4Ghz radio Hotspot can only be enabled on iPhone 12 and above. However, it seems everything one reads isn't...

Re: Mikrotik hAP ac3 - iPhone Hotspot Compatability [SOLVED]

@holvoetn and @whatever It appears that out-of-the-box my Mikrotik hAP ac3 doesn't have the wifiwave2 package installed. The following is the hw-info for the wlan2 interface: [admin@MikroTik] /interface/wireless/info> hw-info interface: wlan2 ranges: 4920-5925/5/a,an20,an40,ac20,ac40,ac80 tx-chains:...

Re: Mikrotik hAP ac3 - iPhone Hotspot Compatability [SOLVED]

Not if those non-Mikrotik devices ARE capable of using those higher frequency ranges. Don't assume. Check. @holvoetn The following are the Apple referenced iPhone XS Max wifi specs for Max Standards, Channels, and Spacial Streams: https://support.apple.com/id-id/guide/deployment/dep268652e6c/web Th...

Re: Mikrotik hAP ac3 - iPhone Hotspot Compatability [SOLVED]

Are you sure the frequency used by iPhone when in hotspot mode is within range of AC3 5GHz band ?

I assume the iPhone in Hotspot mode is within the 5Ghz 802.11n and 802.11ac bands or non-Mikrotik devices would have the same issue.

My gut tells me it's a Mikrotik configuration or firmware issue.
