Q-in-Q

Hi.

So previously we used the CRS125-24G-1S to configure Q-in-Q our supplier does not stock these anymore and see there is no normal switch menu in the CRS326.

So how do you confirm Q-in-Q on this switch?

Re: MikroTik News February 2018 (Issue #80)

So its my understanding that the new hap ac has wave 2 support?

Does that mean that the driver does as well? i.e. does it support all features of wave2 already or will that come at a later stage? Can the AP transmit to multiple clients on different spatial streams simultaneously?

Are you using hotspot or ppppoe?

Either way, you should be creating seperate hotspot/pppoe server per vlan. Then just check the access-request packet, there is an attribute you can use I *think* it's caller-id, you can use that on freeradius to then allow/deny access as you wish

wow.

With an attitude like that its no wonder you are not getting help.

How can you possibly think that putting two different networks on the same broadcast domain is a smart thing to do.

The issue is not Mikrotik its the way you *think* it needs to be done.

Ok, should be fine.

Create vlan 10 on ether3
Create vlan 11 on ether3
Create vlan 20 on ether4
Create vlan 21 on ether4

Create 2 bridges

BridgeISP-A
Ether1, vlan10, vlan20

BridgeISP-B
Ether2, vlan11, vlan21

Then tag the esxi host interface with those vlans and you should achieve your goal

you can go with either of them, nstreme and nv2 is going to be faster than vanilla 802.11, and if you are using only RouterOS wifi clients, that is good option to choose.

the fastest of all three would be NV2 in normal conditions.
