Re: OSPF

I did mean the CCRs and I have changed that. Thank you for pointing that out. You're right, MikroTik will not automatically select the Loopback IP address to be the Router-ID. It is best practice with MikroTik to create a Loopback and set the Router-ID manually.

Re: bridge lan and wlan interfaces to hotspot users

Just create a bridge and then add the two Ethernet ports to the bridge. Turn off DHCP on the APs. Switch DHCP on the MikroTik over to the Bridge, move the hotspot to the bridge. Use the IP Binding section to bypass the APs themselves.

You might separate one or more of the WAN connections and try a scenario like the EOIP one listed here.

That will allow you to use the uPNP and bypass some of the problems while leaving most of the bandwidth available for the rest of the customers.

Re: How to deal with interference?

Fortunately, the FCC just authorized the expanded use of the UNII 1 band so you can change frequencies to that band if your clients will support it. Changing freqs is the only real solution. If the air space is saturated all you are going to do is beat your head against the wall.

Re: Mikrotik SSH Backup - my solution

arxont, I am really very impressed with this program and with you improvements you have made with it. Thank you! Can you explain how do this:
ADD: Add to context menu - "Connect over winbox" (connect if the ssh user has rights to connect and winbox.exe located in the same folder as the program)

Re: Email notification throughout Gmail

I've trouble with it in the past, but I have always been able to get it working. Initially, I thought the problem was going to be with the newer versions of blat and stunnel, but I found some of my older versions and it still wasn't working. I'm not an expert with blat or stunnel, so I'm going to ha...

Re: 450G and tl-mr3220 connection problem

I didn't have any luck restoring the backup file that you posted. However, the answer to your problem is probably in your routing statements. My guess is that you have an active default route that points to WAN1. Even if you have a second default route, it won't be active unless you use some sort of...

Re: How do I disable firewall on my MT router to use DHCP fr

All you need for Internet access is a valid IP address, valid Gateway, and, in most cases, some sort of NAT. Everything just edifies those routing statements. How far can you ping from the host? Can you ping 8.8.8.8 (Google's public DNS serever)? How is the first device configured?

Re: How do I disable firewall on my MT router to use DHCP fr

If you want both routers and all hosts on the same network, you will need to: Goto Bridge and create/ modify the bridge. Add/ modify the bridge so that all ports are in the same bridge group. Change the DHCP Client so that it is on the interface of the bridge (DHCP- Server off). You will still remov...

Re: hotspot login page works, mostly.

The HTTP/ HTTPS problem is a trade off any way you look at it. The easiest resolution is to create instructions for the customer to go to some designated HTTP site. :D
