Re: v7.11.2 [stable] is released!

Is it normal for Device -> RouterOS -> Route tab to have empty lines? The Dude has not been properly updated to work with RouterOS v7. The routing table has changed design and probably it is no longer able to parse the new table correctly. Likely you can still view the routing table in the Snmp tab...

Re: v7.12rc is released!

I think it's generally not a good idea to upgrade from anything that isn't the latest 6.49.x to begin with, and better to upgrade to some recent stable 7.x like 7.11.2 instead of to a release candidate. If you want to go to a release candidate, it would be much safer after going to 7.11.2 first.

Re: Difference from-dscp, from-dscp-high-3-bits and from-ingress [SOLVED]

For instance on ether4 you could have an interface VLAN 444 and on ether5 you could have another interface VLAN 444 and you could have a bridge called bridge-vlan-444 that has both the interface VLAN 444 on ether4 and interface vlan 444 on ether5 as ports. In this case I could understand the device ...

from-dscp uses the three low bits instead of the high three bits.

Re: v7.1.1 Feature request : routers address use /24

We don't use user manager but have this issue with other RADIUS servers. We get around it by using a port forward along with src-nat so that we are basically proxying all RADIUS traffic through a single IP so it all appears to be from the same NAS.

Simple queues allow both ingress and egress to be limited at the same time. They are often used at the ISP side for rate limiting of a single customer. It is this that currently has issues with IPv6.

Re: For ISPS: Motivations and methods for implementing fq_codel and cake

ipv6 and these queue types have issues documented here viewtopic.php?t=181705
This only impacts using cake with a simple queue shaper. It works fine with IPv6 when using queue trees instead or interface queues.

That configuration is much better. If this is intended to be a layer 2 switch (access layer), there is generally not a good reason to give the switch an IP on other VLANs besides the one that will be used for management of the switch, and in that case the extra VLAN interfaces are unnecessary.

WDS works with other vendors with 4 address mode though, if you make it an open AP without security.
