Re: v6.38rc [release candidate] is released

Is it possible to setup port based vlan on CRS with hw RSTP? I tried the scenario on the wiki ( http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CRS_examples#InterVLAN_Routing ) and added each masterport vlan to different bridges and was expecting it to behave like "per vlan spanning tree" but... nothing happens.

Re: What is WDS limitaiton with Wireless N

Due to how 802.11n technology works (some of it's features), it doesn't cooperate with WDS technology so well, this causes the throughput to be lower, this is why you can use other ways described in the Wiki Hi all, Normis, why mikrotik wds on 802.11n has low bandwidth, but with ubnt airmax devices...

Re: base station reboots frequently

Hi,
I had a problem similar to yours, and the way i solved was to add the hotspot mac to the arp list of the access point and then change the arp on the bridge of the access point to reply-only.
Now its working well.

Kindly regards,

Re: Does not crash but does not work

Hi, i had similar problem, and until now i didnt found what was the cause.
The only way i have found was to add my mac to the arp table, and put the bridge arp in "reply-only".

Until now it´s working well.
btw, version 3.27, rb411a with radio and ether1 on the bridge.

Regards,

Jorge

Re: Bonding 2 adsl for voip

What you need is mlppp.

Read a little bit of mlppp and ask your isp if they support it.

Re: How do load balancing 8 adsl modem?

Hi, In my opinion, you should use the adsl modems has modems, not has routers. Buy a 16port managed switch, create 8 vlans on the switch. Like (vlan100 "port 1 untagged and port 9 tagged"), (vlan101 "port 2 untagged and port 9 tagged"), etc... until you have all the 8 vlans. Then go to mikrotik, add...
