Re: IGMP Proxy and Deutsche Telekom IPTV

Are you using the MTik device as the router (it establishes the PPPoE session or it is behind a router but still does NATing) or as a switch (it bridges all ports / switches them)?

Re: The Best way to "export" all settings from rb2011 to rb3011

export + import via text rsc file. Even if you do not want to import all settings then you can paste them one by one into terminal window with Ctrl+C + Paste When I tried this, the import errored (for example, I have a bridge br-lan, instead of default bridge-local, so the import errored in that ph...

Re: (seamless) roaming wireless / CAPsMAN

That is interesting. But is this just a coincidence (client process), or is controlled by the CAPsMAN? I think it does depend on the Wi-Fi client hardware you are using. However it does make sense only same-channel roaming works seamless: - To check for APs on different channels it would have to go...

Re: rsa key support in ssh?

strong crypto enabled. some tool for generating public openssh key? In puttygen you have a field for the public key ("to paste in authorized_keys"). You take the entire contents of that field, paste them in a file and then put that on the router and import it. See link: http://blog.muhammada.li/wp-...

Re: (seamless) roaming wireless / CAPsMAN

In my own experience (got several RBs in my home) if you set them up with CAPsMANv2 (wireless-cm2) and set all of them to the same frequency/ssid/key (just the exact same provisioning profile), the devices freely roam on their own (my iPhone very quickly swaps access points when I move through my ho...

Some scripts I made (Sync for DNS static and DHCP leases etc)

All scripts are in my GitHub repo at https://github.com/Doridian/FoxdenNetworkScripts There currently is: - certget (automatically get an SSL certificate and re-import it.

Re: Correct setup for wireless client roaming

The CAPsMan configuration is very similar: https://blog.linitx.com/howto-improved-capsman-wireless-client-roaming/ Thanks for that, works perfectly. Only thing I wish RB could do was "zero-downtime" roaming, so that one access point can "seamlessly" hand off clients to another. I have no idea how o...

Re: Correct setup for wireless client roaming

You'll want to set up both as AP-Bridge with the same SSID and same encryption, etc.
Same channel or different channel? I would assume different channels?

Re: Correct setup for wireless client roaming

I did this at my home once, and was very unhappy with the instability of things - I had a 951 acting as the wds slave.... it was constantly losing connection to the master or to my devices, but when I returned it to being just a bridge client, it was stable again. Remember that when you use such a ...

Correct setup for wireless client roaming

Setup is as follows: Modem <-> RouterA (RB2011) <-> RouterB (hAP) RouterA and RouterB both have wired devices attached (computers, IPTV boxes, ...) Both of them also provide a wireless network. What I want now is both of these access points to provide "the same" wireless network. As in, when you mov...

Re: BUG - Wifi RB2011 vs MacBook

More findings: - MBP's BSSID / channel still correctly reflect the RouterBOARD as the AP - Disabling/Enabling TKIP/AESCCM/both does not fix nor break anything - Disconnecting from the Wi-Fi gets seen by the RB (disconnected: station leaving) - Wi-Fi debug logs show absolutely no useful information a...

Re: BUG - Wifi RB2011 vs MacBook

Disable the TKIP encryption and leave only AES enabled.
This is what I used to have it at. I enabled TKIP to see if it would fix the issue.

BUG - Wifi RB2011 vs MacBook

The problem is simple: After waking the MacBook (Pro, mid-2015) from sleep, the Wi-Fi stays disconnected until RouterOS says "group key exchange timeout", at which point it will reassociate and everything is fine (both the MacBook and RouterOS still claim they are connected to each other). Another w...

Re: Feature Request: OpenVPN [ovpn] udp tunnels

If you really need those features at the moment. Run openwrt image in metarouter and run ovpn from there with full feature set.
This is not the solution. With metarouter my router's CPU gets horribly overloaded so much that my whole LAN starts lagging (RB2011).

Re: Feature request: OpenVPN compression LZO and UDP

I don't care too much about LZO. But I need UDP tunnels (TCP is unusable for many situations as a tunneling protocol as outlined by others previously).
Again, MetaROUTER is not the solution here, especially by causing a major CPU load just to run on my RB...
