Re: Suggestions for IPv6 configuration

Did you try running DHCPv6 client on the ROS x86 router on the LTE interface? The only correct solution to this is if you get DHCPv6 PD advertised. Then you can split that prefix into smaller subnets if necessary and/or assign it to your LAN-bound interface. If you get no PD, then perhaps you could...

Re: IPv6 address with USB LTE Pantech UML295

Alas, I don't think the LTE device supports DHCP - i'm not seeing any response packets from it (i have firewall logging all IPv6 traffic). I understand that SLAAC isn't technically for routers according to the RFCs, but i'd hate to just install a linux box to act as the router (and it get an addres...

Feature Request: SLAAC

Hello, I'm requesting the inclusion of SLAAC into RouterOS. In my case, I use in a few locations Verizon Wireless UML295 USB LTE devices. These do not support DHCPv6, and as such there's no way to get a global IPv6 address from them. (see this thread http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=955...

Re: IPv6 address with USB LTE Pantech UML295

The LTE service supports IPv6. Your MAC uses SLAAC (stateless autoconfig) to get its address and default GW from the LTE service. Mikrotik, however, does not support receiving an IPv6 address / gateway from SLAAC. You could try putting dhcpv6-client on the LTE interface, and assigning the results t...

Re: Using two 3G modems with routerboard

The 0.0.0.0/0 is what you'll most likely need to use.. It basically means "all routes for which you don't have one specified"

You'll also need a NAT rule (src NAT) and any other firewall rules you need

Hello,

just wondered if anyone had run the RB1100 for any periods of time reliably without the internal fans - they're a little noisy to have in an office environment (that doesn't get hot). If not, does anyone have any better ideas for fans/heatsinks instead of using stock?
