Re: What can it be, ghost issue ?

Wireshark would allow You to see the traffic. The hard part is to know what to look for. I have zero experience with Mikrotik/Routerboard - just bought one, and still waiting to get it. But I have experience with network. I would try something like this: 1) Try to isolate the router/AP hit by the pr...

Ah, that helps a lot! Thanks for the info.

Re: Gigabit Through CRS125 - Slow Speed

Connected to the router (Zhone) I have one interface of the ERLite3 (I have eth0). The router's DHCP server gave that interface an IP of 192.168.1.11 Alright! So now, on eth2 of the ERLite3... what IP should I give it? I was thinking to give it 192.168.88.1 Then, on the Mikrotik RB951... give eth0 ...

Re: What can it be, ghost issue ?

It could be a client with a problematic ethernet. I have seen one deffective ethernet flood a network until the switch locked. You said this affects a restrict group of clients. They should be the ones served by the same tower. Could You look at the router on this particular tower? There You should ...

Re: At a loss: WLAN to WAN Fast, WLAN to LAN Slow, LAN to LAN Fast

Are You using smb to do the transfer? If so, this my be the problem. The smb protocol is highly dependent upon latency and uses a huge number of small packets.

Re: Packet loss with RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN

I recently started to see a high packet loss on my router. I reset the router and started from scratch, upgrade boot and packages. Still the same issue. It seems to be between the outgoing interface and next hop (my ISP). I have tried just plugging my computer in the outlet and it works flawlessly....

I just bought my first Mikrotik router (a RB1100AHx2), to use as a router on my work. We have a policy of planned substitution of hardware, in order to avoid problems. But I have no experience with routerboard. What kind of useful service life should I expect from this hardware? 3 years? 5 years? I ...
