Re: MC7710 exact procedure to get it working with Routerboard

Thanks for the reply. I'm interested to know how the ppp serial interface affects upload speeds. The application I am looking at is remote video surveillance access so the 4G upload speed is of interest to me.

Re: MC7710 exact procedure to get it working with Routerboard

Sorry to drag this post up but I am looking at a RB912UAG-2HPnD and I am being told that the Sierra MC7304 is unsuitable because it only does ppp and that it needs DirectIP to work with LTE speeds. From what I am reading below the MC7710 can work with DIP ? Can I expect LTE speeds with an MC7710 and...

Re: Can't stop DHCP on pppoe interface

Because you showed me a single command to set up a default route. When I change the PPP to include the 'Local Address' that you pointed out earlier the RouterOS does not auto create the routes - we have established this.

No - it's not working !

When I add the ppp profile and then add the local IP ( my static ip ) I can not get Internet access because there is no default route being added. However, in this configuration I can connect in to this static ip via ssh.
