Re: DNS setting via DHCP being ingnored on Vlan

Hey Sabastia,

Now why would i want to ship you some English beer when you have the best beers locally...:-) Maybe a cash donation would suffice to get some local amber nectar...

Thanks for the heads up, I'll see if i can work out if thats the problem but i may be back for more pointers.

Thanks

@Anav, I dont understand why you think the config is confusing.I'm obviously no guru at this or it would be working correctly but looking at the config myself i think its easy to follow. I am not a network engineer and to be fair dont want to be either. I appreciate there is an element of self help ...

DNS setting via DHCP being ingnored on Vlan

Hi, We run two Lans on our router, a Vlan ( for public WiFi use ) and Management LAN ( for our hardware ) with no Vlan Tag. Each LAN has its own DHCP scope which uses different subnets. Within the DHCP settings for each LAN we use a different DNS Server. The tagged Vlan uses a DNS address for a web ...

Re: Bricked RB750

you could try using winbox and enter the mac address manually rather than using the "neighbor" feature. I have done that in the past and it worked for me. You may need to connect the RB direct to the computer running WinBox via Ethernet though. Failing that, check to see if you get a default DHCP ad...

Ah Ok then... unfortunately that doesn't help as its means the bigger kit needs to go client end which in my case could be a street light and would therefore be to big. Guess i'll have to wait until different hardware is developed.

We have a 1100 series router board that has been used to test a wireless link which is now redundant, would that work?
