Re: Coping with slow download speeds on my home LAN

Hi rextended, I should have seen that coming. <smile I am confused by the mikrotik website. May be it is just me but it is hard to determine which of their devices are routers and which are access points. Could you perhaps share a link to one access point?

Re: Coping with slow download speeds on my home LAN

Hi Metod,
The Netgear access points act as switches. All IP address assignments are done by the mikrotik.
I have now changed the assignments of the sub nets to interface=bridge.
Many thanks for that pointer.

I had connected the pc to the Netgear access point via a LAN cable.

I have an APC SUA1000UXI ups. I see that I can connect it to my RB751g-2hnd router running router os 5.19.

I am a tad confused about one thing. Will the router act as a snmp server if I connect the ups to it and enable snmp on the router?
