wAP LTE SIM Personal Hotspot Limits - Three UK [SOLVED]

In the UK the carrier "Three" has some good deals on SIMs but they spilt the data allowance up into Personal Hotspot and Use by the phone. I'm not sure how the separation is done, possibly traffic tagging on the phone. How does the wAP LTE deal with this, is it configurable?

Been using 2.4GHz ossies with MikroTik APs for a long time without any great problem - only irritation is that when you set one up to do PPPoE it will not pass on the DNS config to the connected DHCP clients so you have to hard code the DNS servers into the DHCP which seems a little pointless.

Re: Loosing rip;ospf,BGP with 2.10

I hope this is a joke.

I can live with 2.10 and without BGP!
I can't live without OSPF and 2.10 cause MTOS is then useless for us.

Hi Evan_reBOOT Firstly here you will get no help from MikroTik unless you are running the latest version of their RouterOS 2.9.11 (Sorry but someone had to say it ;)) 2.9.11 will give you some benefits over 2.8.2 which is pretty old I’d really think about an upgrade to 2.8.28 at least, in this situa...

MT have a new board out really soon, the 100 series it will be cheaper than the 500.

If you stick with MT for AP and CPE then you can have some neat things going on like NStream - Polling (avoids hidden nodes) and you could build a Mesh too!

Where are you doing your DNS lookups on the laptop? do you have it using the MT or your ISP?

If it is the latter then you need to put the DNS settings from your ISP into the MT, then have the laptop do DNS against the MT, that way you are caching DNS too!

Is the link routed or bridged? I have upto 4 wireless hops of between 2 and 12km with little loss of bandwidth each link is in its own subnet and each repeater has 2 radios, which I think your MT2 has.
