Feature Request: Please enhance netwatch to be effective in WAN environments

I would like to use netwatch for monitoring/recovering WANs, including 3G/LTE networks; however, the current implementation of netwatch lacks necessary flexibility and would needlessly trigger actions during intermittent or inconsequential outages. Could you please add the following enhancements: 1....

Re: LtAP mini/kit with USB A host port?

But why? It already has place for two modems
Thinking about it more, a second Ethernet port would likely be more useful.

LtAP mini/kit with USB A host port?

What is the possibility of MikroTik making/releasing a device similar in form factor (or not much bigger) to LtAP mini LTE kit but with the addition of USB A host port (independent of the internal mPCI-e usb)? Bonus if it has dual Ethernet. I know I'm asking for a lot, but one can dream. :lol: Thanks

Re: v6.37rc [release candidate] is released, only one wireless package!

It does make sense. The NTP package provides an NTP server and it works with fixed server addresses. Sure it would be nice if there was the possibility to use DNS names there, but you should understand that in that case the DNS names would be resolved only one time after router reboot. And there ma...

Thanks! That was the issue.

@MikroTik, please fix the inconsistency. It doesn't make sense to me that the server-dns-names option should not be available with the NTP package installed.

There is a regression in the dns-update tool in RouterOS 6.x. It is registering A records with the host name missing. You end up with an A record having only the IP address and no name.

This worked in 5.25 but is completely broken in 6.18.
