Re: Router's default Address after Custom Configured [SOLVED]

Hey. It's DNS flood from outside, perhaps from your ISP. So just disable your DNS "allow-remote-requests" option. If it's already disabled, then relax. Every router in the world drops so many trash you can't imagine. Yes, I know it's harmless traffic; however, I have an edge pfSense box that strict...

Re: Can not log into RB750 with WinBox

It seems that a firewall rule on the router might be blocking you since you're not connecting from LAN. The solution is to give the change instructions to the customer for them to do it while you watch via teamview.

Re: Upgrading to V6.0rc12 from V5.5 mipsbe on RB450

Load V6 RC12 into the router (drop the files in) and then see if you can flash the board firmware. That way you can upgrade the board firmware, and then when you restart it should be able to start in RC 12? I'm just guestimating this... I upgraded the routerboard firmware to 2.29 from 2.28; however...

Re: Could Microtik Killed Dievices Ethernet Ports

No one has some answers or an explanation of what could have happened? The router seems to connect to the Internet on the Eth1; however, none of the other ports are connected despite being able to logged-in the RouterOS through Winbox.

Re: Could Microtik Killed Devices Ethernet Ports

I forgot to mentioned that the sad part is the Apple TV, the Blueray player, and the Emac were powered off. Also, I had tried to upgrade the Microtik RB450g to OS 6.0rc12 and had actually uploaded the file which didn't install when I reboot. The Ethernet ports on the Microtik seem to be dead too.

Could Microtik Killed Dievices Ethernet Ports

As the subject states, i found several devices connected to the Microtik can no longer received Internet signal via the Ethernet port (the Netgear wireless access point, the Apple TV, the Emac, and the Blueray player).

What happen?

ok, I FTP the file (routeros-mipsbe 6.0rc12) to the router; however, the upgrade was not installed upon rebooting.

Yes, open the folder, select all the files, drag them on the folder inside of winbox. Don't drag the directory the files are in, drag the files themselves.

You're not looking at the right tab. Look at the actual DHCP client configuration (not the status) and uncheck "Use peer DNS".
