High Sector Writes when Using LEDs

Has anyone found this to be a problem: I wrote an signal-strength script that I have used for many years. After upgrading from 6.21.1 to 6.36.6 I had to modify it for the new method of controlling the LEDs. (I can’t use the built-in “type=wireless-signal-strength” feature because that has fixed RSSI...

Re: get supported-bands not working in 6.33

The problem is that the output from this command can't be captured by a script. We used to be able to to this: :local foo [/interface wireless info get wlan1 supported-bands]; :local fooArray [:toarray $foo]; :local supportedband [:pick $fooArray 0 1]; or :foreach b in=$fooArray do={ . . . But I fin...

Re: How to netinstall RB433 with out IP address

I'm having problems with this too. For years I've been using NetInstall on several different RB types with no issues. Now however, I have a batch of RB433 boards coming in with ROS 5.26, firmware 3.18, and all of the half-dozen boards I've tested so far have refused to NetInstall as expected. I don'...

Re: changed script operation in 6.1?

This is a critical problem for us. We rely on very elaborate scripts—amassed over years of development—to dovetail with native C++ application software we build for our customers. In many cases, these RouterOS scripts write out text whose purpose is to write out yet more escaped text that gets inter...

Re: 5.24 released!

But isn't the "firmware" just the bootloader? How can that affect RouterOS? It just permits serial upload of ROS from Netinstall.
If it's bad, we wouldn't be able to Netinstall or at worse, not be able to start RouterOS. Am I misunderstanding what the "firmware" is?

Re: possible to create a folder via FTP?

To create a local directory, I've been using this trick for years: /tool fetch address=127.0.0.1 src-path=someDummyFile user=admin password=xxxx \ mode=ftp dst-path=newDirName/newFileName; The fetch command seems to set up the credentials with ppp and then ftp creates the newDirName. Just delete the...
