I am trying to link two RB951 boxes.
Trying to put all the necessary information here, yet if I miss something, please do let me know.
I have two RB951... lets call them sw1 and sw2.
sw1 will be at one table, and sw2 will be at the other table.
They are connected via an ethernet cable going from sw1-eth2 to sw2-eth1.
Both RB951 are running the default configuration as they come out of the box.
Ideally, sw1 will be the DHCP server for the entire network.
Out of sw1-eth1 will be the connection to the internet.
How can the setup be done, such that a laptop plugged into sw2 receives an IP from sw1?
I have tried to do the following:
Default configuration on both sw1 and sw2
enter config on sw2, turn off DHCP server, switch IP to 192.168.88.2/24
connect ethernet cable from sw1-eth2 to sw2-eth1
So far, this doesn't work.
The laptop plugged into sw2-eth2 doesn't grab an IP address.
I am new to Mikrotik, and not an expert in networking.
Yet, I have been watching various Mikrotik Basics tutorial videos in YouTube, and reading a lot the Mikrotik wiki.
So I have *some* idea of what can be done...
All help is very much appreciated!
