Re: Timeout when upgrading [SOLVED]

You can set your preferred source address for outgoing traffic in the IP route table (in the default route, in this case). I appreciate that suggestion, but in my case I'm struggling to make that happen. Probably because I'm not doing something right. Here's /ip route print : # DST-ADDRESS PREF-SRC...

Re: When auto updating, Error connection timed out

There are several threads on this problem. I am inadvertently blocking the updates because of how my rules work. I wrote about it on one of the other threads here in the forums. It's possible someone else is doing what I did. viewtopic.php?f=2&t=111054&p=675438#p675438

Re: mikrotik check-for-updates failed

I had this same issue with disabling firewall rules in order to get the upgrade to succeed. I posted my data on another thread here in the forums: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=111054&p=675438#p675438

I found, like someone else mentioned, that when I disable the "drop everything else" rule at the bottom of my input ruleset the upgrade succeeded. If I leave that rule in place it...

Bandwidth limiting Facebook, YouTube, etc. by AS and CIDR IP Address

If you Google or search these forums you'll find lots of people desperate to limit or block Facebook, YouTube, and other bandwidth-hungry web sites. Many of them suggest using Layer7 content matching. I've implemented that with a regexp of (youtube|dailymotion|metacafe|vimeo|facebook|fbcdn|1e100), a...

Having the router use a provided /29 network instead of PPPoE default route

Hi all. I'm fairly new to RouterOS and setting up a somewhat complex home routing environment. I swear I have searched the forums and the documentation, but I think I am struggling to find the right terms to search on. Here's the deal. I've got BT Infinity for Business, which uses PPPoE. BT has assi...
