Re: Unable to see FortiSwitch over bonding link.

Strangely when I restart MikroTik's, FortiSwitch from Site 2 is visible to Fortigate for a brief 10-20 seconds. I have tried changing Bonding mode, but without result. As i search for solution, this seems to be VLAN issue. Fortigate has VLAN1 for CAPWAP. Is there anything more other than adding vlan...

Unable to see FortiSwitch over bonding link.

Hi! I have situation where I have Fortinet based network. Fortigate that controls FortiAP's and FortiSwitches. This works fine on Site 1. But we have Site 2 that is connected over pair of four Dynadish 5 (two links). Bonding is done on RB3011UiAS, both one on Site 1 and second on Site 2. Currently a...

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

to answer your question any unit with an RX in the -50's then you need to turn down the tx power of the one it's talking to, Chance are you will need to turn down the tx power on them all The company that installed two links tested them yesterday. We did turn down little bit power, but in the end p...

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

Well with a receive level in the -50's you need to turn back the tx a little, They are screaming at eachother .
Which one? I'm still waiting for guys that installed this link to come and check this problem.
I see on all four Dynadishes Tx Power Mode: default.

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

Quick thoughts, I'd say you could turn down the TX power level's a bit to bring RX into the -60's. Have you checked to ensure there is enough physical separation between the dynadishs? Have you checked they are not on the same or very close channels (I.e Overlapping). The poor CCQ is the problem. I...

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

Have you tried leaving the rb3011's and bond interfaces in place and only tried it with a single link in the bond? This will tell you if it's an issue with the Dynadishes or the devices doing the bonding? If things improve with one dynadish then we can look at that. If they don't then we need to lo...

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

You have to remember that Bonding interfaces is also CPU bound

Even with new devices RB3011UiAS same problem.

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

you must test final client(pc) to client(pc), testing is cpu hungry and running it on the same mikrotik device will not show real link results since cpu is used for generating traffic and the remaining for routing it. I did in first run. It was really slow. We have ordered new RouterBOARD 3011UiAS-...

Re: Bonding two Dynadish 5 WiFi links

As you have only posted 2 of the 4 config's from the DynaDishes I can't check this but have you confirmed you're not using the same frequency on both? Also how close are the Dishes on both site, You might need to look at putting some space between them so you don't have an I.F interference between ...

So desired design is: bonding-mikrotik-desired.png I have tested desired design but I get worse pe...

Re: hEX trunking

It is easiest to use a bridge between vlan10_ether1 and vlan10_ether2 in your config.
This worked perfectly!

Thank you very much!

Re: hEX trunking

No, it depends on your network layout which you (need to) know by yourself. Maybe you do not want to route these VLAN's but rather bridge them, in which case you want to create a bridge with both VLAN interfaces in it (without address). This is something you need to design before smacking a new dev...

Re: hEX trunking

Ok so add VLAN interfaces and configure the IP address for them, and they will be routed. I have created VLAN interfaces but I'm not sure which address range to use for them. Here is config, maybe you'll get better picture than me: /interface vlan add interface=ether1 name=vlan1_ether1 vlan-id=1 ad...

Re: hEX trunking

You can configure "vlan" interfaces with a parent of ether1 and ether2.
But what is the hEX supposed to do? Routing? Switching?
Currently it's used to route traffic from one network to the other, providing DHCP on ether2. Now I need to put into story VLANS for access points...

RB SXT G-5HpacD VLAN for AP clients

Hi! I'm new in MikroTik and need to setup AP mode on SXT with two SSID's for two VLAN's. ether1 is connected to Cisco SG200-26 trunk port with three VLANS, 1, 200, 300. 200 and 300 should be on seperate SSID's. I have tried various configurations from MikroTik documentation site but with no success....
