Re: Apple devices & Mikrotik

MAC based access control is not a solution because MAC address can be easily changed.
Indeed but I could probably live with it for a little while.

Re: Problem with mikrotik and IOS6

The other trouble is that iOS "remembers" the encryption settings of a network (SSID) when it discovers it, and doesn't revise those settings if they have changed . So if you change the encryption settings, you may need to tell your iOS device to "forget" that network and rediscover it, before it w...

Re: Apple devices & Mikrotik

Yes, I was more looking for a clever work around whilst we wait for Apple to do something.

Ie using a different authentication method or disabling auth completely and using mac based access control or something.

Re: Apple devices & Mikrotik

On my iPhone5 I can get issues mostly when running Sonos, but also some times without Sonos running. Disabling and enabling wifi on my iphone5 will solve it for a while. I have not tried the TKIP workaround, since I have a lot of other devices connected I did not want to play with this. Exactly thi...

Re: Problem with mikrotik and IOS6

Trouble is there is also a bug with AES which causes the connection to drop out:

ideally need to get this working on TKIP whilst we wait for Apple to fix AES.

Re: Apple devices & Mikrotik

Yeah, I read above that just enabling TKIP and disabling AES is a workaround for Iphone 5 but when I tried this just now, I found that I could only telnet to the router and one other internet site and could not connect to most internet locations: IOS 6 has a confirmed bug with running mixed TKIP & a...

Re: RB751G - Remap ports possible

Not getting a DHCP lease on eth1 even though I've set all ports to be switch ports. What gives.

Re: RB751G - Remap ports possible

I can't do that for eth2 as it is already a member of the bridge.. Can't seem to change that value though?

Re: RB751G - Remap ports possible

I tried that but it failed to apply as a master port already exists.

RB751G - Remap ports possible

Hi, spent a while trying to work this out but not getting very far. Is it possible to remap the ports so that port1 is the master switch port, 2+3 are slaves, and 4+5 are router ports? Reason is I'd like to power the device via POE and my lan switch will do that, so will plug into port 1. 4 + 5 woul...

Re: RB751G or wait for new RB2011 models?

No problem, have ordered the RB751. Can always look to upgrade in the future if required.

RB751G or wait for new RB2011 models?

Need to purchase a new router soon to terminate multiple FTTC service (using MLPPP or BGP to bond). The higher routing performance of the RB2011 combined with the additional ports and PoE support mean it probably fits my circumstances, however I also need wireless. When are the new versions likely t...
