Mikrotik WiFI drops on large Jitsi Meet videoconferences

Hi everyone, I’m running into a weird issue with my Mikrotik 751U-2HnD where the WiFI network on the router drops for about a minute during large Jitsi Meet videoconferences of around 20 users. There is nothing interesting in the router’s logs, and the router itself does not crash or reboot, just al...

Re: Bridge ether2 Port Removal [SOLVED]

Serial console. This was an RB2011 which has one.
Ah, OK, thanks.

I also later discovered the Winbox MAC address connect feature, which is indeed incredibly useful.

This would seem to be a bug that should be reported and fixed, no?

Re: Bridge ether2 Port Removal [SOLVED]

I needed to restore the DHCP server connection to the bridge port, and the local routes as well
But how did you restore those settings if you've lost access to the router? I'm having the exact same problem as you describe.

Re: IPV6 over PPPoE prefix expiry longer than IPv4 lease

There is no "IPv4 lease time" in this case. PPPoE uses IPCP to give an IPv4 address. This address is allocated until the customer disconnects. The only way of shortening this period is by actually forcing a disconnect of the customer. Your ISP must be doing this every two days, and your DHCPv6 clie...

IPV6 over PPPoE prefix expiry longer than IPv4 lease

Hi there, I use my Mikrotik to establish a PPPoE connection to the internet, and my ISP sets an IPv4 lease time of 2 days. Then the IPv6 DHCP client gets a prefix that expires in 3 days. My IPv6 always works for a while, but after a few days (appears random but it's probably not) IPv6 connectivity o...

Re: RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

"Pseudo bridge" = Layer-2 NAT. All devices behind the Mikrotik will bet L2-NATed to the same MAC (the Mikrotik's MAC). It works only with IPv4 (the MT maintains a IPv4 addr → MAC addr lookup table). Thanks for the explanation. And do all protocols work over this bridge, assuming they run on IPv4? I...

Re: RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

When I set it up following the reddit post I did not have 2 mikrotik units just 1 and could not get access to other hardware so needed to make it work.
Yep, this is where I'm at for now. I will probably eventually install another Microtik in the AP location, but I can't right now.

Re: RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

So, I guess I need more explanation on what a "pseudo station bridge" is, and how it works.
Have a look at this wiki page.
Yep, thanks, I linked to it in the first post in this thread, but I didn't really understand the page.

Re: RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

Thanks a lot for the Reddit link, that might do what I need. But I see that post is referring to a setup with 2 Mikrotik devices. So, I guess I need more explanation on what a "pseudo station bridge" is, and how it works. Will it work with a non-RouterOS devices as the AP? And it will it allow clien...

Re: RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

This page is much clearer and better written than the Mikrotik documentation:
https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/clientmode
But I'm not sure which of that applies to RouterOS, and which would be best for my setup?

RouterOS "repeater bridge" with non-RouterOS AP?

Hi, I need to bridge two physical locations with a WiFI link, and I need all of the devices in both locations to be on the same subnet so they can all talk to each other, and I need to be able to connect devices on either end via WiFI or ethernet. I would prefer to use the same SSID in both location...
