Hi, my first topic to post in MT land. I've been doing alot of homework on the setup at my house which I've had since March. Everything is running great. I'm sure my config could be better, and am probably looking at it too much instead of leaving well enough alone.
I use winbox remotely to look at my setup as I am constantly wanting to tweak it, but don't know how to get to the wAPac from there. I'd like to configure it from the same winbox as I'm using for the hEX. That would be more convenient on the LAN as well. It would be neat if these MT's would automatically talk to each other, but then it wouldn't be as fun as telling them what to do.
Brief summary of my hardware setup is as follows:
cable modem set up as modem only mode (ISP offers ipv6 /64 btw), connected to ether1 on the hEX (hEX is used as the workhorse for firewall, dhcp server etc.)
LAN on ether-2master, (3,4,5 slaves)
ether 3 hooked up to my main PC via cat5e cable
ether5 hooked up to wAPac bridged with ether1. via poe/cat5e (wAPac is pretty much stripped down ie. no firewall etc., as it is used for wlan only)
For rOS, I tried and failed many times. I got frustrated enough that I wanted to return the items and go back to the dd-wrt world that I came from. I called the person I bought it from who agreed to teamview in and set me up...it took him less than 10 minutes to do a pretty basic config. I backed that shit up and haven't looked back since. I've learned enough to get ipv6 going, firewall rules, ip cloud, ntp etc,etc
Hoping for some easy answers...nothing is ever easy...
