Re: 8km link with LHG 5 connected to mANTBOX 19s

Didn't know that so I tried between 5500 and 5600 but I got same if not worse results probably due to neighbour interference. Best frequency found for throughput is at 5220; about 90mbps station->ap and 5-15mbps ap->station. I'm still experimenting on this though and hopefully I'll get back with bet...

Re: getting IP of DSL interface

Yes probably this is it. You could try inserting a delay of a few seconds before getting the address of the -just came up- ppp interface. Not sure why you want to use the loop though or why are you not putting this script on a scheduler to run every few minutes. That is how I'm doing it along with a...

Re: 8km link with LHG 5 connected to mANTBOX 19s

Thanks for the response :)
So what's the throughput you're getting transmit/receive on this?

Edit: just saw the mbps you wrote at the end. I'm guessing I do have a problem.. I suppose I should check the LHG 5 end first.

Re: Croudy Wi-Fi

Short answer : not doable. Long answer : While some manufacturers claim 100 clients per radio (or even 500) and let's say you could do with 5-10 of some probably expensive access points you would still have to route all those clients to separate AP's and manage bandwidth so they could have a decent ...

Re: Update remote database with new DHCP lease

interesting! how did I think about that?

But what about extra vars? device hostname? lease time? ip address?
System logging reports server name, bound/unbound and mac address.

A simple option it is, though not very flexible afaik

Re: Update remote database with new DHCP lease

hello, pity I just saw this!
I'm currently working on something like that, I'm using PHP and MySQL to hold all client leases with the MAC address as a unique ID.

What is your progress?

Re: hotspot-like functionality on dhcp lease

I'm now thinking this whole idea differently, so:
is it possible to enable hotspot for a specific client device only?

PS: it would be nice if there's a documentation on what "enable hotspot" does in detail,
i.e the commands sent to the RouterOS

Re: hotspot-like functionality on dhcp lease

Yes I'm aware of the shared user set in hidden form attributes, I've been using that for a while. Though as I said, we want to minimize the user's awareness of a captive network. We don't want to disrupt their experience, a CNA notification is fine for that matter. Maybe I'm missing something, but i...

Re: redirect client to our website without hotspot

thnx boen_robot, though we want to avoid hotspot, for the reasons I described above to rephrase: is there a way to redirect ports 80,443 to a specific URL? /ip firewall nat add chain=dstnat \ protocol=tcp \ dst-port=80,443 \ src-mac-address=00:1E:C2:B2:54:69 \ action=dst-nat \ to-addresses=87.43.32....

Maybe I missed something else, I'll take a look at it again when I have time.

Re: Script dhcp2dns

hi, I've been playing with this for a while, and I cannot get it to work,
The line
:if ([/ip dhcp-server network find address ~ [:tostr $leaseNetwork]] = $network) do={

Ok then, great!
Just a note, if no checks are needed, you only need one line as boen_robot suggests in http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=89444

Re: Trigger Script when Client registers on Network

I'm working on something similar, basically to get notified when a certain host connects. The "lease script" which is called when a dhcp-server lease is given, seems like the way to go about this. Though RouterOS 5.x does not have the "lease script" feature, but 6.x does. So in order to do that in 5...
