Re: v6.42.9 [long-term] is released!

Hello, I've found a different factory reset behavior after upgrading to v6.42.9. In v6.40.9 the interfaces, DHCP server, and firewall policies were included by default. Now in v6.42.9, only a static IP address of 192.168.88.1 is configured on Interface 1, without a DHCP server, or firewall policies ...

Re: ROS 7 Beta

Personally I think Mikrotik needs to start over with RouterOS. For example, Cumulus Linux contributed a VRF implementation into the Linux kernel. Using OpenVPN from upstream could permit TCP and UDP. Etcetera. They probably had a good reason for diverging at some point. And perhaps they still do, I'...

Re: VPNFilter malware [SOLVED]

MRZ, I assume you're indicating this vulnerability was patched in 6.38.5? Can you confirm?

The Talos blog indicates they reached out to Mikrotik about the problem, so I'm confident that mrz would be aware of any and all developments related to this exploit.

Apprently it is not fixed in 6.43. I found logins as admin from different IPs allover the world to my CCRs1036 with 6.43rc11. Moreover not only CCRs are affected as I found similar logins into my RB3011. These logins appears first time back in April 30 and was happening every few days until today. ...

Re: hAP ac^2 Problems---Extremely Poor Performance found in 2.4G and 5G WiFi

Early reports mentioned that the hAP ac^2 and cAP AC have a 10 dBm weaker signal than a wAP AC. Can anyone comment whether 6.43rc has also resolved this problem? Thank you.

Re: Mikrotik CAP AC Performance Review

Does anyone see any improvements with 6.42.2 compared to 6.42.1 on cAP AC?

EDIT: 6.42.2 release notes includes "improved wireless throughput on hAP ac^2 and cAP ac" that was originally in 6.43rc, so you should see improvements.

The problem is administrators leaving their firewall services (API, Winbox, SSH, etc.) exposed to untrusted networks.

Re: CAP ac bad Antenna design?

For all you have trouble with wireless throughput please check if have both chains checked on wifi interfaces. I found when I configured cAP AC set as follows: cAP AC.PNG However, with the two chains checked, the speed is smaller than it should. I hope this will improve in future RouterOS versions....

Re: CAP ac bad Antenna design?

We used a lot of WAP AC in the house and we were very satisfied with its WIFI. When we tested the CAP AC(tested 6.42rc41), we abandoned the purchase. :( :( :(

What problems did you have with the cAP AC?

Re: CAP ac bad Antenna design?

wAP and cAP is not a fair comparison, wAP is a waterproof device, designed to also be used outdoors. It has a different antenna design. Why not design all access points (whether wAP, cAP, or hAP) with similar antenna? There are advantages to having an improved antenna for indoor access points, such...

Re: CAP ac bad Antenna design?

Macbooks do have Three chains, btw. That depends on the model of MacBook. In this case it probably only supports two chains since it operated at 866 Mbps with the wAP AC. If it had three chains it would have instead negotiated 1.3 Gbps or maybe 877 Mbps with lesser signal strength. But the point of...

The IPQ-4018 is built as a Wi-Fi chip by Qualcomm, and I think is unlikely to be used in a hEX.

Re: ARM based new goodies on the horizon

Yeah the antenna in the UAP-AC-Pro is very large. The UAP-AC-Pro design maximises antenna gain, which will improve RX sensitivity, which in my opinion is a better approach than using high TX power which just results in the "lighthouse" effect.. The hAP ac2 and cAP ac look to have Mikrotik's traditi...

Re: hAP Lite wireless questions

Any comments on this?
My speculation is that the hAP Lite performs poorly in congested environments. And I couldn't say whether that applies to all Mikrotik wireless products. I ended up replacing it with a commercial product that works fine.

Resource exhaustion has the potential to affect any device or service, especially those with less processing power, and isn't a "vulnerability" or "exploit".
