Re: v6.40.3 [current]

I have encountered an issue with the RB912 (Basebox 5) and Sierra Wireless MC8705 where after the lte connection has connected and got a DHCP address, the lte interface will disappear and reappear and then not reconnect. Log reflects as system, info item added twice. I downgraded to 6.38.7 and am no...

Re: v6.40.1 [current]

The modem-signal LED display has broken from 6.39.2 > 6.40(.1) with the RB912 (BaseBox 5) + Sierra Wireless MC8705. Once downgraded back to 6.39.2 the LEDs light up again where as on 6.40 and 6.40.1 they do not light up.

RB912 Antennas needed if wlan disabled ?

Hi All, I want to use the RB912 with LTE card instead of our current setup of a RB411U with LTE card. The only issue is the fact that the built in wlan card on the RB912 needs to have antennas connected to prevent damage to itself. My question is: if the wlan interface is disables in routeros, do I ...

Re: 3g Connection resets aftert a few hours

If you don't mind restarting the router occasionally, I would suggest using the watchdog feature. Set it to ping an address such as 8.8.8.8 and the timeout to about 15 minutes, then if the connection drops the router will reboot and regain the connection. If the 3G is not your default route, set a s...

Which ROS and firmware versions does the RB411 have?
The board is currently firmware V3.22 with ROS 6.34.2 running - I would like to try netwatch so long and will also create a ticket now.

Re: Add DHCP Client for interface that does not exist

add interval=10s name="add dhcp" on-event="/ip dhcp-client add interface=lte1 disabled=no"[/code] This sounds like a great idea! What I ended up doing was exporting the config and saving it as a txt file, then using the reset config with the text file set as "run after reset" and it worked perfectly.
