Good day Currently having unaccounted upload traffic on my MT. I do have a drop all rule in place after the required accept rules. Anyone able to help? Seems it's coming from outside and the abnormal traffic eventually causes PSN etc to block access. Sometimes even Netflix. See firewall: /ip firewal...

Re: RB260GS as unmanaged (No IP address)

My network runs in the same subnet and will be using multiple of these switches. Thought it best to leave it unmanaged so the IPs don’t conflict with each other and the network? Maybe I’m wrong... Didn’t think of changing the subnet though as that means I can still manage it without causing issues r...

Hello

Would the RB960PGS be able to fully use (no bottleneck) a 200up/100down Fibre connection (not using sfp, but Ethernet to ISP ONT) to serve multiple clients with PPPoE/radius accounts, limited accordingly and the bandwidth managed with queues?

Hi all

As per the title, would a wireless Fibre bridge (200Mbit Down/100 Up) work with the MT LHG 60Ghz Wireless Wire at 1500m apart?

What are the downfalls?
Would the connection be susceptible to wind/medium to heavy rain?
Suitable to use for a PtP Backhaul?
