Re: OSPF MPLS Setup Convergence

I was able to solve the issue. I had to set the STP to none on the bridge that the VPLS was connected to. It was already set to none on the loopback, but apparently when the route changes it also trigger RSTP which drops the traffic. Once I disabled that it worked like a champ.

RB750UP - Issue

After getting a RB750UP in, we began testing it. It works great except for if you try to power a Motorola Canopy unit from it using POE. If the Motorola is connected and the RB750UP is rebooted, the switch will not turn on the poe for that port even though it says it is on when looking at the ethern...

Re: Split Horizon Bypass

So is there any way to tunnel around a bridge that is isolated with split-horizon?

Re: Split Horizon Bypass

No we do not. Each client connects to an AP with a wireless unit at their location, there is no need to install a separate mikrotik unit at each house as that adds more to overhead and more headaches. We hand out non-routable IP's via a centralized DHCP server and everything is bridged which makes f...

Re: Split Horizon Bypass

Bridging works best for us and customers as it allows us easily to get to any piece of equipment and a consistent gateway for all customers so its easy to troubleshoot and provision.

Re: Split Horizon Bypass

I am using split horizon to isolate clients connected to AP's on each port. It works well so you don't have to worry about any type of broadcast, dhcp or any other traffic traveling between each port. I don't want to disable it as I want to keep the network isolated, I just want to get around it for...

Split Horizon Bypass

I am using split horizon to isolate traffic on my ports to isolate all my customers. It works well but wouldn't you know I have one customer who needs to communicate with their office which is also in my system over a vpn but the split horizon is stopping it. Is there anyway to get a connection arou...

Re: Poor Performance

It is the upload going through the bridge. I can reverse cable through different ports and always the same results. As soon as I remove the bridge and use as a switch by configuring master port it works great so this would indicate to me it isn't the hardware issue they were talking about in 5.3 and...

Re: Poor Performance

No I test in each direction independantly. I also use other speed tests as well, all with the same result, once I start using the bridge interface, it limits flow in one direction. I did notice there were issues reported in the 5.3 code on the 450 boards, but has anyone tested the 5.4 on a 450G to v...

Re: Poor Performance

I tried that with the same results. Performance through the bridge is still only good in one direction, and .5M in the other, yet works great when using it as a switch. Any other ideas?

Re: Poor Performance

Thanks that solved the speed issue, but one of the things we wanted to do was use the split horizon feature available under bridging to isolate all ports and only allow ports 2 - 5 to communicate with port one which is our backhaul and not to each other. Also upgraded to 5.4 before trying your solut...

Poor Performance

I am setting up my first mikrotik routers, and when running iperf through them the speed is good in one direction, but only .5M in the other. If you bypass the router its great. Tried 2 different boards. Using default config and just trying to use them as a simple switch for now to verify performanc...

Re: Three 9dbi sector Antennas or one 15 Dbi Omni Direct. ?

The more radios and sector antennas you use, the more clients you can support so that is your biggest consideration when designing a site.

Re: Port seperation

They are going to be public ips traversing across each port handed out by a main dhcp server so separate subnets are not an option.

Port seperation

How do I configure it to use port 1 as the internet uplink for all other ports and the remaining ports which are connected to AP's to be isolated from each other while still having access to the uplink port on port 1. We also need to get back to any port from the uplink port and get access to the ap...
