It's likely not on your mikrotik side but on the dsl providers side.

Re: I think it is MTU problem

just to make sure.... Changing the DNS server to 8.8.8.8 and the max DNS packet size are two different things. Queries from 8.8.8.8 will not have the UDP packet truncation issue so if your having issues when using 8.8.8.8 then changing the max UDP packet size won't fix the issue. However if your ha...

It's possible that the DNS udp packets are exceeding 512 bytes due to too much information returned in the request. Set the max DNS packet size to 8192.

Nv2 medium-access timeout problem

5.9 had major improvements in signal to noise levels under NV2.

5.14 addressed NV2 disconnects.

If you haven't tried 5.14 NV2, give it a go.

Also, if the link isn't stable with nstreme or 802.11 modes, it's not going to be stable with NV2.

You can use pcq and set a per user limit in queue type with "rate." It's more efficient then simple queues and you can adjust the rate on the fly. You can still use hotspot with this.

It sounds to me like you need to optimize your rules if your only pushing 50 mbit at 98% CPU. Is your CPU set to the correct speed? Make sure to uncheck pass through in mangle rules to prevent useless processing of packets. Use connection marks then packet markets. Connection marks are tracked under...

you already set 'HT extension channel above' with '20/40 MHz above' in channel size. that option moved in Ros 5.

monitoring 490 items - want to move from x86 to 1100ahx2

I suspect the dude will benefit the most from the fastest single processor speed more then dual/quad cores.


I was commenting that the flash in the 1100 would not be ideal for dude with that many devices. ROS CPU skyrockets with IO to internal flash.

Re: RANCID Config Backup

This goes in mtrancid. After some testing, it doesn't really fix the issue. how about # RouterOS splits long lines with backslashes - this joins them back up if (/\\\n$/) { s/\\\n$//; $buffer .= $_; if (!/=$/ && !/="[^"]+$/ ) { $buffer .= ""; } }
