Re: How to remove 802.1Q header on "untagged" bridge egress

You have run into the same problem that we are facing with MT and bridging to speak to AT&T fiber in the US. See this thread for more details https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=154954#p793156 . I have raised the issue with support already, but no resolution as of yet. It would probably help ...

Re: Is an example available for VoIP with PC?

The only practical way to support VoIP phones is if the switch implements LLDP-MED. Unfortunately, this is not supported on MT switches and many of us have to use other brands to achieve the functionality the OP is inquiring about.

Re: Bypassing AT&T Residential Gateways with MikroTik

Official Response from MT Support: Currently, RouterOS interfaces do not accept packets with VLAN-ID 0 and there is no option to create a VLAN interface with VLAN-ID 0. However, there is a possible workaround - add the interface into a bridge with enabled vlan-filtering. VLAN filtering will treat th...

Re: Bypassing AT&T Residential Gateways with MikroTik

Its not so much a fix, as it is additional functionality we want.
OK, what is the process for getting that to the right people at MT? Contact support and refer back to this thread?

Re: Bypassing AT&T Residential Gateways with MikroTik

I'm glad you are happy with your equipment, we are running CCRs and need to stay with those. The best option would be for the bridge to be able to strip VLAN 0, but isn't that something MT needs to fix? @Wojo workaround is good, but not the ultimate solution.

Re: Bypassing AT&T Residential Gateways with MikroTik

The limitation that the bridge is not handling VLAN 0 has been present for a while. Has anyone filed a bug report to MT support about the shortcoming? Or is the only option to use a device with the appropriate switch chip?

Re: Voip phone with PC access port? [SOLVED]

This is why it would be really nice to soon get LLDP-MED support. Tried out the CRS326 (and looking at the CRS328 for PoE), but without an easy way to provisioning the phones, kept the old switches in place.

Re: Anybody ues AT&T Gigabit Fiber with Mikrotik RouterOS?

@vsixnetworks - VLAN is your friend since it's layer 2 and you can send anything over it including other VLANS. Create a port on the switch with ingress of a VLAN number of your choice (in the 100's is probably best) where you connect the ONT. Then create a trunk port that you send all the traffic a...

If you are on a residential fiber network, it is most likely GPON architecture. To interface any MT equipment, the only solution afaik is to get a GPON SFP module. I have not come across such a module, but in parts of Europe and Canada it is obtainable from third parties. The discussion about config...

Re: Anybody ues AT&T Gigabit Fiber with Mikrotik RouterOS?

The address that I got assigned on the BRIDGE_WAN was a 2001:: address that only made it about two hops out, for whatever reason. My understanding is that AT&T uses the 2001:: address for some of the set top box communication. Your observation is correct, it does not go outside AT&T's network and i...

Re: Anybody ues AT&T Gigabit Fiber with Mikrotik RouterOS?

You should also check your BGW status page to make sure that you are in an area where you have dual stack IP. In my area you will find both dual stack and 6RD. If you are in a 6RD, you need to configure the 6-to-4 interface on the Mikrotik.

No issues with the DHCPv6 on my end. Been running IPv6 for almost two years. Have you checked the "Rapid Commit" in the DHCPv6?

Re: Anybody ues AT&T Gigabit Fiber with Mikrotik RouterOS?

You need to make sure that the BGW first has DHCPv4 working.

I've assigned the static addresses given by AT&T (/29) to a VLAN and connect my fixed addre...

We are standardized on the CCR line with UBNT APs, as this gives us the headroom we need on 1Gb/s. Firewall rules, VPNs, OSPF, etc. quickly adds up.
