/system reboot

/system reset-configuration skip-backup=yes caps-mode=yes

Thats all that you should need to do on a cap.

Re: Beginner's troubles with CAP AC

Routing is not enabled by default on a CAP AC. The default out of the box set up is as a WAP. So connect it to your router... and used it as a wireless access point.

Re: Anyone use their "Drop All" input rule to make a black list of addresses?

I have 2 rules at the top of the filter chain to dump ALL TRAFFIC from IPs that hit any port I deem "interesting" in mangle prerouting.
The mangle rule adds them to an address list for 24 hours.
Then the drop rule drops that address list at the top of the firewall chain.
