Re: [Vlan] Internal Mikrotik router to Internet Mikrotik Router

I am most probably doing the wrong things here. Basically I want the router in the flat to be a wireless access point. The main mikrotik must hand out DHCP and do all the routing. The only thing I want the second mikrotik to do is to tag the packets with VLAN ID 50 so that each client on the second ...

Re: Automatically limit all other queues when a particular IP starts receiving data

You don't need scripts - just use the limit-at feature and priorities to give priority to the Roku. limit-at is a misleading name - it's really a "minimum guaranteed bandwidth" So set limit-at = 256k down / 128k up on the other queues, and set it to something like 75% of your total bandwidth on the...
