Re: New CPU - new product RB750Gr3 - RB750G family - now mmips

Why Wireless tab is showing into this device, when this device dont have wireless at all ? Pls remove it from menu, its useless.

RoS 6.40.5
it is perfect router to serve as CAPsMAN for a small home network (my case) or small office. As I use APs with reduced TX power to limit self-interference.

Re: v6.40.4 [current]

Consult with your ACS provider if they are thinking of fixing the issue of special characters in hostnames, such as spaces. Also, it could be useful if you could sniff the exchange to see what exactly is sent to your ACS and send that to support.

also, PPPoE is not strictly necessary. In RouterOS you can use DHCPv6-client to acquire the prefix and/or address for clients.

Re: IPv6 Ping does not work with domain names

the problem will go away when IPv6 is set as a preferred option for the :resolve command and elsewhere where RouterOS attempts to resolve a hostname to IP address. When forced the :resolve command is returning the IPv6 address, hence the workaround of /ping [:resolve ipv6.only.domain] is working.
