Hi

Please review
http://wiki.mikrotik.com/index.php?titl ... d_Hardware
especially under the 802.11 section

I have had it before that if the cards are not seated deep enough that it could cause that issue.
You can also look under system IRQ and those areas to see if the card loads at all.

The Issue should not be related to Ip Cloud, but can be checked with a dns resolution to see if your WAN Ip matches the DNS reply from your DNS server.

Re: Neighbour not showing all attached routerboards, why?

The reason is that Discovery INterfaces need to be enabled, and by Def they are disabled for Wi-Lan Devices, and for Tunnels, If u are Bridging all the way then you will see them provided there is bridges to LAN

In other words Discovery is only enable on Ether interfaces By default.
