Re: RouterBoard Webserver Stop Responding

Support got back to me a few weeks later. They duplicated the problem by logging into the webserver from more than one IP. No fix yet.

Work around... Disable and reenable webserver under /IP services.

Re: 2.4 4-way handshake timeout

Got email from Mikrotik. Explained the problem and how to reproduce it.

They did... And don't currently have a fix.

So high density with interference... If you see 4-way handshake time out in Caps-man...

Don't fight it. Don't mess with support. Just buy the Ruckus radio and move on.

Dumb switch and both routers being independent won't go well with the requirement to control other router's bandwidth (on first router, as I undertand it).
Which should be done per router.
