Re: Extend wifi to new office in same building - GrooveA 52HPn or RB951?

Never mind - we decided to just wire it up instead :)

Extend wifi to new office in same building - GrooveA 52HPn or RB951?

My employer is expanding into another office suite in our existing building, and the current wifi (Unifi UAP) doesn't quite get a good enough signal to be useful (appears to be around -70 from wifi scanner). I'd like to use a Groove or RB951 to be the wifi client, and then setup another Unifi UAP in...

Re: DNS pegging CPU to 100%?

I've been thinking that the way modern attack vectors work, it might be time to start thinking more about filtering what is allowed to go OUT. It's much more common now for computers to invite the malware in - like vampires. They're not relying on worms to hit your computer and exploit vulnerabilit...

Re: DNS pegging CPU to 100%?

Are you redirecting your LAN stations' dns requests to the Mikrotik? (i.e. do you have a dstnat rule that matches udp port 53, action=redirect, or action=dst-nat to-address=Mikrotik's IP) Not redirecting, but I do specify the Mikrotik as the primary DNS (via DHCP). If you're doing this, and some of...

Re: Setup GrooveA 52HPn wireless in cable out

Way to stick with it! i have a groove setup the same way for my RV, and I also had a lot of trouble getting QuickSet to work - ended up building the config out manually. Not sure why!

Re: DNS pegging CPU to 100%?

Is your internet on another interface than ether1? Did you set it to PPPoE using some guide found on a random internet site instead of the correct procedure? In that case go to the IP->Firewall page, find the input rule that matches ether1-gateway incoming interface and modify that to match your pp...

Re:

Make sure you deny DNS requests from outside. In filter rules make an input deny rule for TCP/UDP on port 53

I already have a default "drop" rule for all new connections incoming on eth1; I verified I could not do DNS lookups from the WAN side.

DNS pegging CPU to 100%?

I had an issue today on my Routerboard 2011UAS-2HnD (Firmware 3.24), running 6.33.3. Everything was working fine all day, then all of a sudden LAN clients started getting DNS timeout errors. I was remotely connected at the time (through the Routerboard) and never lost my connection, but I verified n...

Forward local IP to external IP (for RDP)?
