Re: PPPoE Client on router A, physical connection to modem on router B

Question for you - for that 'switch stack', is it a single switch or a group of switches in some kind of failover configuration?

I am using a single switch at this point, a CRS326, as I am still testing. The idea is to add failover once I get it working.

Re: I have a problem while connected wirelessly to "RB2011UiAS-2HnD"Router

When Windows shows "No Internet Connection" but you are successfully connected to a wireless network, it is indicative of a gateway problem or perhaps a DNS problem.

eKo1: The behavior that you are describing in item 2 of your initial post is a classic case of a hairpin NAT. If you want a better understanding of the problem, read this:

Re: RB951ui-2hnd as multiple load balancer?

Hello: In rules 10 and 11 in mangle, under property PCC, you specify 2/2 and 2/3. This is not possible, since the second number is the remainder of a simple division operation. In brief, 2/0 means that the algorithm will divide the number of the connection by 2. if remainder is zero, then the rule i...

Concerning your 4 dsl connections: FYI, I am load balancing 12 vdsl connections on a 3011. My suggestion is, if possible, do not use the modems as routers. Set them to Bridge mode and have the MTik handle the PPPoE client connections. If you must use the modems as routers, it would be simpler to giv...

Re: Mangle issue with Multiple providers

A couple of questions: 1) Please clarify that you mean by "behind" the router. Do you mean when you try to access it from inside your network (LAN)? 2) What is the LAN IP of the computer that you are using to try to access your client's routers. 3) What are the LAN IPs (or IP range) or your clients ...
