Do not forget to disable the FastTrack option in the firewall otherwise strange problem may be arisen.

Once the problem is fixed, before re-activating the FastTrack, you have to exception rules before the FastTrack rules in the forward chain.

Re: Extending the range of a wireless network with mikrotik

I have just used the Setup Repeater Wizard to extend my WiFi (single SSID) from one place to another. However in your case, you have three SSIDs to be extended, I believe you need to run vlan on the cable connected to the remote AP (1 main SSID, and virtual SSIDs, the terms may be incorrect).
