Re: upgrade without available space

Uninstall packages not needed, then upload just the minimum (system, etc) to boot on your network. Then install the rest of the new packages. If these are onboard flash, like RB112, look at bad blocks and the files directory to see why you are short of space.

Re: RB532 lost password

Been there. :) Netinstall will work 100% for us by using a standalone PC with only one network interface (no wlan) forced to 10Mbps. Use a static IP and connect directly to the router.

On the other hand, an Ipod portable router is a cool idea. Maybe an Iphone runnig MT as a Pocket HotSpot.

You might be able to telnet into you router to make changes. There is also a utility "WinBox" on the MT download page. But better to contact your ISP to set thing backs up properly. I don't know what those commands in webbox set. This is why we disable the router web utility on all our CPEs.

Do a /system routerboard upgrade. You might need to manually reboot. The upgrade command should reboot for you (per docs) but doesn't for me.

as far as i understood from his support email, he forcefully reinstalled the onboard OS and wiped the license
How to do that since the flash is non-removable and even "format nand" preserves the license? Maybe writing a different OS?

I think you are looking for /system script job to see what is runnning and remove to stop. No PS - yet. It is on several wish lists.

In your diagram, the wraps are configured to bridge so unless you have firewall rules everything is open by default. Port forwarding to each private ip is set on the Linksys.

I didn't realize that the reset-mac was only for wired cards... oh well. Sam When I used the /export file to make a clone...

Might be getting somewhere. Did an upgrade on a WRAP to beta2 with two AR5211 cards. We use no-radar-detect on the AP side. Despite the band set at 2.4, the frequency gets set to 917MHz (tri-band card anyone?). Turning off DFS fixes that one. Do you try no CSMA/CA backoff option ? High Regards, And...

Interface MAC Addresses

Okay, so you can change the MAC of an interface to just about anything. How can the original MAC be "read" back if you don't know it, aside from /sys reset?

Tried a fresh install on a 112. AR5211 cards don't seem to function (although report ready) and CPU is at 100%.
