Setup OSPF between routers and assign routing filter with RIPE-NET/22 le 32 Each time client gets PPPoE IP ospf will forward the route to the main router and therefore your BGP or whatever protocol you are using will redistribute it.

Re: 2 BGP Sessions custom setup

Hi
Thank you for this answer.
I have already switched to OSPF and is working great.

OSPF on a PPPoE network is pretty simple to set up. Primary principles employed will be: All the backbone IP's will be in one 'area' - the backbone area and network.

x86 XR5 crash

I have a DELL Optiplex GX110 with int. 3com lan and XR5
the RouterOS is 3.0rc9.
The problem is that sometimes the wlan sends diassoc to the remote which is also 3.0rc9 with Zcom 5213. I have to disable and enable the card to assoc again.
What it could be?

actually, the RB112 is a good client, and the RB532 is a good AP. If you use 112 as an AP ... well you could use the same as client too.

if you are using mikrotik as an AP the best chois for client is also mikrotik :)
