This is quite subjective, also to note is that the EP06-E is running on the default antenna's on my w AP R ac unit. Also I am currently back in Victoria. I suspect that the B28 tower is at a different location to the other tower doing band 3&7!? So B3 / B7 /B28 .. BAND 3.png BAND 7.png BAND 28.png

Re: Vlan's....am I doing it right?

Hi, yes bridging is correct if you are using the router(cpu) side of the 750's. Its a lot of mucking around to get the config's just right. I know I'v been playing with the 750g's for the past couple of months with VLAN's. I'v recently got this type of vlan working kind of properly myself on a 750g<...

Re: ingress vlan tagging 750g

I hear what your saying there fewi, unfortunatly I dont have the hardware here at work. I understand that there is a limit to adding rules to the atheros chipset in the 750G. But I would think that VLAN tagging/untagging 2 or 3 ports of the 750G shouldnt be beyond this models capabilities, looking a...

ingress vlan tagging 750g

Hi, does anyone have an example how to VLAN tag incomming frames into a 750G eth port? I would also like to know how to remove any vlan tag on the egress of the same port? I'm assuming here its something to do with a `switch' command. Its so I can plug a pc directly into a eth port, Vlan tag it, put...

Re: RouterOS v5.4 released

Some problems on RBs could be caused by not enough space on the flash. Please uninstall the unused packages. Checked and should not be a problem. Anyone else who lost the ntp-client setting in the winbpx menu with the ntp package (ntp-server) disabled? Yes my NTP client item is missing in winbox on...

Re: How do I Dual Wan & 1 LAN 750G..

Thank you again omega-00. The WAN network address spacing was allocated to me by the people who run the Wireless WAN network. The WAN is broken up into /28 per IP block request. I was allocated the 10.10.66.80/28 block (80(network) - 96(broadcast), 81 to 95 usable). The other WAN on my link is from ...

Re: How do I Dual Wan & 1 LAN 750G..

Thanks for the tip omega-00I. I have fixed my diagram! I think OSPF is generally working correctly as I am obtaining routes from other nodes now. What is the best way of controlling access to the WAN from the LAN side e.g ability to http/ftp to devices on the WAN side, while blocking the majority of...
