Re: Blank ARP failure (not displaying information) RouterOS 7 version

It means your L2 link is dead. A blank MAC address in an ARP entry means the entry is "incomplete", i.e. there was no reply to the ARP request. That being said, a difference between v6 and v7 is that v7 never clears the ARP table. So even after an entry is unused for a long time, it still ...

Remember that when you do not use autonegotiation, you have to manually set both speed and duplex mode AT EACH END.

Re: v7.14beta [testing] is released!

The easiest solution for irritating LEDs: apply black tape. I have done that "forever" on MikroTik equipment, e.g. because of the blue powerled (torch).

Re: hap ax2 config copied to hap ax3?

I never had to fight against 802.3AF/AT implementations! It always "just works".
But of course it requires way more hardware than "passive PoE".

Re: v7.13.3 [stable] is released!

When it really is not possible to gain space by separating the packages, a "RouterOS lite" base package could be created that omits all those bells and whistles and allows the device to be used as a simple NAT router without capabilities like auto routing, mpls, dot1x, proxy, SMB, hotspot,...

Re: ERROR: RECV RouteRefresh with invalid subtype: 0

It is the same when the peer is RouterOS v6. When you make changes to the route filters and do a "refresh" it issues the error and does not refresh.
When stopping/starting the session it works, but that is unfortunate.

Re: v7.13.3 [stable] is released!

I would recommend remaining on 7.12.2 (so before the wireless changes) at least until 7.14.1 is released Good point. TBH, I don't think there will be some magic in 7.14+ which suddenly gives us lot of extra space. That is unavoidable consequence of adding more and more features. There appears to be...

Re: DHCP/DNS configuration for two router setup [SOLVED]

I tried your tip ( set detect-interface-list=none ) but it did not let all equipment run in the same domain. Are you sure this command changes the behavior? To me it seems to be a filter for reporting purposes, not something that changes the state of an interface. Study the matter a bit better and ...

Re: Feature request: Add sorting

Still, the sorting in winbox is done by winbox, not by RouterOS.

Re: v7.13.3 [stable] is released!

One of my hAP ac2 running v7.13.2 had an interesting and totally unwanted behavior earlier today: The router was reporting about 3% free space (so not totally full). If this is going to happen to everyone on normal install, we are getting into interesting times. Yes, in particular the hAP ac2 is in...

Re: hap ax2 config copied to hap ax3?

A good fix is to not reboot routers unless it is required to upgrade software or install an additional package. MikroTik routers do not need to be rebooted after a config change or after some uptime. Next time you face the same situation anyway, instead of reboot the PC try to unplug the network cab...

Re: Newsletter #116 | January 2024

Too bad the CRS326-24S+2Q+RM is delivered from factory with RouterOSv7 and 64MB of RAM.
You can run SwOS on that. Anyway, I would never buy that kind of thing from MikroTik.

Re: v7.13.3 [stable] is released!

Did you run into this issue when trying to configure the router from an export, or when just rebooting it after the upgrade? There is this bug in the /export that it exports /ipv6 address before /ipv6 dhcp-client, but it has been like that for longer than 7.13.3 and it usually seems harmless. Could ...

Re: v7.14beta [testing] is released!

It means your router does a DNS query before everything is up and running. Maybe you configured NTP with a DNS name, or some other service like that. Just ignore it, it will fix itself later. Yes, I ignore it, the intention here was just to show how something as simple as starting a service at the ...

Re: Newsletter #116 | January 2024

I do feel that 64MB of RAM is on the low side for ROS7.
True, you should not upgrade that kind of vintage device to RouterOS v7 unless you are prepared to live with performance issues.

Re: RB3011 different storage size

On a router like that, it would be a good idea to use partitions=2. You have 2 partitions of 64MB, usually enough for operation. Then before you upgrade, do a "copy to" in the partition menu, copying the active partition (0) to the other (1). When after the upgrade you are not satisfied wi...
