Return is the default when reaching the end of a custom chain, I assume that applies here too, making it unnecessary. So the answer would be no.

My latest update from support on this (from yesterday) is:

I'm not sure what that means for timeline, but it does show they are giving attention to this issue that I brought up with them about 1 year ago now.

Re: RB750UP - Issue

solution with capacitor is dangerous if short is happening, it can damage the router and connected hardware when on short that large capacitor is discharging, on the other hand, if you know that no shorts are going to happen - it is not that bad to stabilize the fluctuations. People are just lookin...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

My desired setup (and how I'm testing) is with the Mikrotik-provided power supply (24V @2.5amp) feeding through a passive poe injector (y-cord) through 120' of cat5e cable. The 750UP is fed on the DC plug from that 120' cable. Then I have a 1 or 2 Nanostations on a 30' cat5e cable connected to one ...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

we are working on new controller firmware that should remedy these problems.
Got this today:
What's new in 5.18 (2012-Jun-21 17:20):

.....
*) fix health and poe access reliability on OmniTIK UPA and RB750UP boards;

......

Is that what we are all waiting for or a tease?

Re: RB750UP - Issue

Our 2nd solution that we are awaiting parts to try is a 48V to 24V PoE Converter, silimar to Mikrotik's but the one we ordered has 30W output instead of 24W, I would've preferred a >40W unit, but we couldn't find one that was readily available and at a resonable price. This would allow us to use a ...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

This has everything to do with tagging and trunking. In my tests, I was plugging the 750UP ports into a switch (I used port 1 and 2-5, one at a time). I had a different IP on each VLAN on the 750UP. Those VLANs were sent over a trunk with tagging (1 ethernet cable between 750UP and the switch). On ...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

With ports 1-5 removed from the master port and put into a bridge, I added the vlan under the switch to ports 2-5. I also added the vlan interface to the bridge. This allowed me to attach an IP address to the vlan. Let me know if you need more information. Yes, but from what you are describing, thi...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

This is a little off topic, but does the 750UP support VLAN tagging and trunking? I'm trying to set this up, but keep getting: "failure: not supported for this switch" No, rule table is not supported on 750up. See the wiki below. "Rule table is very powerful tool allowing wire speed packet filterin...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

We will make software upgrade that does some output adjustments to compensate for this noise.

When??? Days, weeks, months?

Re: RB750UP - Issue

I've been able to resolve my powering issue. I soldered a 35V 2200uf capacitor onboard (the board still fits in the case) and all is well. I put this back on the tower 200ft up in the air and now can power 3 UBNT devices! Finally it works as expected!!! $2 and its fixed? Where do we solder? Have so...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

I have spent hours upon hours trying to figure out the problems with these. Turns out, they do just fine if you power them directly or have them powered by a very short cable run. With a 100ft cable run (for example), a Nanobridge M5 runs just fine, but if you put a 750UP at the end of that run and ...

Re: RB750UP - Issue

We are having issues with devices connecting to a 750UP as well. We have a site that has two Nanobridges attached to it. The logs show that the interfaces go down. We end up cycling the POE power on-off-on (or forced on in the newer firmware). We have tried to 750UP devices thinking we may have just...

SNMP DHCP Issue

I am running 5.8 on RB750. With another RB750 running 4.11, I can get the leases from SNMP in 1.3.6.1.2.1.9999 as expected. With this unit, I get output, but it doesn't include my current leases as expected. Is this a known issue? I couldn't find it in the forums or the changelog. Anyone else having...
