I have a hAP AC^2 (RBD52G-5HacD2HnD-TC), connected as follows:
ether1 - PPPoE connection to DSL modem
ether2, ether3 & ether4 - in bridge to "new" network - 192.168.88.1/24
ether5 - "old" wired network 10.10.1.1/24
(I am not really staying with 192.168.88.x, above just examples for explanation. 10.x has to stay as some hosts are static and mailserver ip's hardcoded inside my network - takes time to update)
I want the default dhcp server 192.168.88.1/24 on the main bridge for WiFi and wired ports but not ether5.
I want second dhcp server on ether5 on 10.10.1.1/24 network.
I want routing between the two networks.
Some of the wiki and forum says to create dhcp server on ether5 (which works) and take it out of the bridge, but then I loose hardware acceleration and they don't route. I can't add ether5 into the default bridge as it disables the dhcp server ("dhcp server not allowed on slave interface" - makes some sense). I keep searching the forum and wiki and some articles relate to older releases, some bridge examples on the wiki but they don't cover this simple scenario. A lot of routing is between devices, not within.
I have been going around in circles with this and I must be missing some fundamental concept.
- add second bridge with only ether5 as member and dhcp-server2 (works, hardware acceleration, but networks don't route between each other)
- add static routes when using above?
- connect interfaces inside both bridges?
- none of the above and something totally different like making ether5 vlan10 or something and putting dhcp server on the vlan interface? (reading stuff like this https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:L ... figuration
This all seems so simple a requirement, main dhcp server on the main bridge, second dhcp server on ether5 and the networks route... but I must be missing some fundamental. I am not network expert, but I got everything else setup (external NAT, more than 1 PPPoE IP etc).
If there is a bridge 101 somewhere I missed that explains all this happy to take a link and go figure it out!
Can anyone point me in the right direction of how this should be configured with the current bridge interface?
hAP AC^2 totally great by the way, down/up speeds increased over old router and loving all the functionality, even with the steep learning curve.
Bonus related question: how would I put the guest wifi quickset created onto its own dhcp server?
