Dynamic queues with Radiusmanager & Mikrotik API post 6.31

Hi,
I have noticed that ROS version later that 6.31 that Radiusmanager, whilst logging on via the API, does not change the simple queues on the fly anymore.
I was unable to verify 6.33 as it broke our PPPoE and I had to revert to the version I find most stable which is 6.7

My guess is yes - I bet you've still for the DHCP Client enabled on the WAN interface. Don't forget though to program a default route and DNS servers too, as they will most probably be given out by your DHCP server. Post the config if you want a response that's not just a guess.

Are you marking the packets that you want to leave via this other internet connection? If not then the routing mark attribute on the default route will mean that route will not pass any traffic.

Re: Covering the basics here

I'd blame the cable modem - it's probably assigning an IP address whilst it connects properly to the ISP at which point the ISP should assign an IP address via dhcp or pppoe direct to your mikrotik - assuming the cable modem is a layer 2 bridge when it's fully booted and connected up.
