Re: What does it really measure: "Tx/Rx Signal Strength (dBm)"?

I'll assume that units in winbox are right ... Whenever some quantity is expressed in dB, this means logarithm (base 10) of ratio between two values with same unit ... which makes ratio unit-less. E.g. "my index finger is 3dB longer than my child's index finger" ... in decimal units that translates...

What does it really measure: "Tx/Rx Signal Strength (dBm)"?

What does it really mean? http://sergeskor.no-ip.org/Files/Tech/4/mktk_capture.PNG Received signal strength (RSSI) on client side (how strong is the router's signal at the client)? Received signal strength on the router side (how strong is the client's signal at the router)? May be it should show bo...

Re: 6.43 change in login process and API libraries?

"Where traffic can be easily sniffed by 3rd parties you should establish secure connection anyway."

Ok, now on not secured connection we have to pass password as open plain text, which is unsecured even more :-(.
Are there any advantages of post-6.43 login method?

Mikrotik, are there any explanations?

Re: simple switch and WiFi AP (no dhcp, no nat)

I think "Home AP" in quick set should do.
No, Home AP will create another IP subnet for wifi and wired clients on lan ports. This is exactly I would like to avoid.
I need just switch and wifi AP, no dhcp server, no nat, no another ip subnet, no masquerading.

simple switch and WiFi AP (no dhcp, no nat)

Hello, i have a home network based on another router (given by provider), which i do not want to change. I would like to use Mikrotik router as simple switch (for wired clients) and wireless AccessPoint (same IP subnet, no dhcp, no nat). Which standard configuration is for that? If none - how can i ...

Will ask here to not make another topic, subject is very similar...

Update: post removed, problem solved, it was a bug in client firmware, Mikrotik is not guilty.

Re: How to read file content using API?

You can't directly with api. Download file via ftp and then read content locally.
Bad.. :-(.

Is this bug? or feature? It was working with some older versions of firmware. Are there any hope it may work in future versions?

Re: How to read file content using API?

/file/get
=.id=*D034A
=.proplist=contents
Ok, this one is working (for small files), thank you.
The way how i did it before:
/file/print
=.proplist=contents
?name=filename.ext
is also working (only for small files).

Still question is how to get >4Kb file content, using API?

Re: How to read file content using API?

You will not get file content if file size is larger than 4KB.
But it was definitely working for larger files, i have tried with export file (.rsc)...

How to read file content using API?

I have some application, running Mikrotik API commands to export configuration to the .rsc file and save it as a file on the computer. I have all steps done, valid .rsc file is created, but i cannot get file content to the computer. It is strange, because i have remembered this specific command was ...

Re: NAT Loopback, for all ports.

Instead of getting NAT loopback working, in my opinion it would make more sense to solve this by DNS. Have your MikroTik work as a DNS server for your clients and have all services that run internally resolved to the internal IP address. I have just setup static dns record, it solves a lot of probl...

Re: NAT Loopback, for all ports.

The old setup was working because your provider's router was doing the loopback. There is no single rule to reroute incoming traffic through the prerouting chain of your WAN, so that DNAT rules are obeyed. The solution could be to rewrite those DNAT and input rules, so they don't use interfaces on ...
