Re: BGP Question

Yes it's a learning process. I did pick up O'Reilly's BGP book.

What's the best technology on the mikrotiks to route outbound traffic to the shortest path on the open internet?

BGP Question

If I run BGP on my main router and announce my IP space over two ISPs, what determines which ISP the traffic will come in on?

Re: Major problems with new x86 system

I was connecting via mac and you called it exactly. Once I switched to IP it started working fine. The weird thing is that I was able to connect to other routers via MAC with no problems.

Major problems with new x86 system

I just setup a new x86 based system for use as a Mikrotik router and I'm having major issues with it. I'm using an intel board, 1 GB of DDR, and a intel core duo 2.2 E4500 processor. I also have a crucial 1 GB CF card. I used netinstall on my win xp machine to install routeros onto the CF card. I th...

Re: Core Router Hardware

We looked at those as well as an OEM unit that looks almost identical. It looks like a very nice piece for many applications. In our case, space is not a big issue as we have plenty of rack space where we are deploying them. In a NEMA box or a cramped rack at a POP they'd be an ideal choice. At our...

RB532A Lockups and Packet Loss

I have a Routerboard 532A running version 2.9.49. Lately I’ve been experiencing a lot of router “lockups.” When this problem occurs it starts out by having huge packet loss on all interfaces, like 50-80% packet loss. I’ll get disconnected from Winbox and I won’t be able to access the router. If I re...

When is it time to upgrade?

I have a RB532 with 64 Mb of ram running 2.9.46.

I have a fiber WAN connection right now at 20/20 mbps.

The CPU load on the Mikrotik is averaging at 55% and peaks to 87% (according to Cacti polling once a minute).

At what CPU load should I upgrade to faster hardware?

Re: Slow Network Speeds, Reboot Fixes

When the slowness occurs it can be seen on both the WLAN and LAN interfaces. The WAN is physically connected to a Linksys SRW224G4 used solely for port mirroring for ntop and snort. Both ports used on that switch are forced to 100 FD. The WAN interfaced is configured like so: MTU: 1500 ARP: enabled ...

The x.x.196.1/24 addresses are public IPs used by the end users equipment (router). The 10.1.1.0/24 address are only for the management of the equipment and it never contacts anything in the x.x.196.1/24 range. I added 10.1.1.1/24 as an IP address on the WLAN interface and the devices are using this...

Alright, I think i was missing the "add route" step before, it's working now.

Here's the problem though. Is there any way to make this work without enabling proxy-arp on the LAN interface? I have it setup right now for reply-only and I have a static ARP stable for security.

I have a MT router setup at a remote wireless POP site. Right now the router is doing routing, NAT, DHCP, and a few other things. I'm running DHCP on the LAN interface for customers connecting to our network. The DHCP server hands out 192.168.0.0/24 addresses. On that interface I have ARP set to rep...

Hello, I'm going to be switching a Motorola Canopy network from a Cisco router to a Mikrotik router. I'd like to be able to deny users access to the network (from the LAN side) if their MAC address isn't registered somewhere. I don't plan on running NAT because each end-user will have their own publ...

What's the best way to do bonded T1's on MT?

I hear that MLPPP is the best way to go, but I don't think its supported. Right now I'm using a Cisco router and CEF.
