Ethernet stats shows zero every few ticks

In Winbox, and SSH, when viewing interface statistics it will show all zeros for one update, every few updates. What I mean is that it will show statistics normally for a few seconds and then will show all zeroes for one update, then go back to displaying normal numbers for a few updates before disp...

Re: Antenna works with PRISM, not with Atheros..Help!

So two years later and attempting to upgrade this same link after moving many customers off of it. RB112 with 200mw prism card. Attempting to replace with Rb411 and Atheros card. With the prism card we can run a scan and see 20 other access points. When using a DBii pro-20 500mw can only see 7 acces...

Re: Preconfigure new/replacement wireless card?

I ran into issues when doing a large export. One easily reproducible error is with "/ip address". If ether1 has 192.168.1.1, so the export contains "/ip address set 0 address=192.168.1.1", then the import will error because the interface already has that IP address, causing the rest of the import to...

Re: Preconfigure new/replacement wireless card?

Thank you for the recommendation, but the solution I'm hoping for would not require me to log into the routerboard after installing the new card. The idea is to remove that step entirely so that the tech installing the card can simply swap the card and be done, without having to open a computer and ...

Preconfigure new/replacement wireless card?

Currently if you replace a configured wireless card in a routerboard then the new card will be unconfigured and disabled. If you put the original card back in then the routerboard will "remember" the settings of the old card and not require configuration. Is there any way to preconfigure a card befo...

Re: New iPhone App for Mikrotik / Router (released!!!!)

the port field when adding a new mikrotik device is limited to 4 digits, making it impossible to connect to 5 digit ports
You may also want to make a specification that this is the ssh port you are supposed to enter, not the winbox port

program looks good so far, I am still exploring it

I'm wondering if it is possible for the mikrotik dhcp server to send out a force-renew message to clients so I they can get a new ip address instead of waiting for their current lease to expire or trying to contact the customer and guiding them through an ip renewal process. If possible then how?

I have an x86 Mikrotik router with three WAN connections, each WAN IP is on different subnets with different gateways.

Only one of them will respond to remote pings, there is nothing in the firewall that would prevent the pings.
