I have 2 RBwAPG-5HacT2HnDs to setup a home wifi, and I'm trying to test these APs with RouterOS in Exsi before wiring them to real RB2011.
but these 2 APs can't be connected to the RouterOS router at the same time, if only one AP is connected, every thing is good. But once the 2nd AP is connected, usually the 1st one will be "kicked out", be inaccessible, the 2nd AP is unstable as well.
This issue has nothing to do with CAPSMAN or wireless, the problem is I can't let 2 non-router RouterOS live in the same subnet.
the topology is vmnic 4/5 connected to 2 WAPs, MATLAB is where I manipulate winbox, MATLAB is working great, accessible to internet.
the RouterOS router setup is very simple, it plays as a secondary router after a real RB2011 which is functioning, and these 2 WAPs are hooked directly to this ESXI router
these 2 APs setup is simle as well, both are identical except admin-mac
