Right now, I'm getting rough...

Re: Distributing IPV6 from a central router

I have an address assigned to my WAN connected router, and it has an address.

All my computers are getting assigned addresses from that.

only my mikrotik 951s aren't. Adding ::1 there doesn't do anything (it shows up as invalid)

Re: RB912UAG-2HPnD Won't Accept DHCP from RB433G

Ah. I figured out. The Auto-Config was adding some parameters that I wasn't using, and that seemed to cause it. Once I got on via MAC I was able to turn that off and it grabs an address like expected.

I've been waiting for this I hope :)

I'm wanting to replace some old closed access points (indoors) with these. However I'd like to still have backwards compatible 802.11b/g/n radio.

Can i just plug in a R11e-2HPnD to it? Which enclosure do you recommend?
