Equipment: hEX (RB750Gr3) w/ latest RC available
Kinda new to the Mikrotik ecosystem and I would like some help but also I would like this to serve as a thread that gets indexed by Google to shed some light the correct configs / best practice. There is a bunch of information on Google about how to set up a UBNT Edgerouter (X, Lite) but it would be nice to give advice to people looking for an alternative.
So here is the information that I have found from around the internet.
Steve Jenkins made some configs for the edgerouters here: https://github.com/stevejenkins/UBNT-Ed ... ogle-Fiber
I have tried the ER-X version and it seemed to work ok. I was seeing about 100Mb in speed drop off the download speeds but upload seemed fine.
Apparently: this is all that is needed to replace the Network box that Google Fiber provides:
- Google Fiber wall jack in eth1:
- Tagged VLAN 2
- VLAN ( 802.1p = 3)
- DHCP (802.1p = 6)
- IGMP (802.1p = 2)
This allowed me to get an IP and the hEX could use the tools built in to check for packages, traceroute, ping, etc./interface vlan add interface=ether1 vlan-id=2 name="Google Fiber"
/ip dhcp-client add interface="Google Fiber" disabled=no
/ip firewall mangle add chain=forward out-interface="Google Fiber" action=set-priority new-priority=3 comment="Google Fiber IN"
The part that I started to struggle with was apparently getting the the internet accessible to the rest of the devices attached to the hEX.
Question: Can someone show me the commands to finish out this config correctly? I would like eth1 to have the Google Fiber in ( with ipv6 ) and then the rest of the ports to be bridged with DHCP enabled. I would be able to plug something in port 4 ( for example ) and that device would have internet accessibility . Assume the default configuration that you would have if you just reset the hEX.
Once we get a working set of instructions, I'll make a post / update this one with the latest information so others on this path can find the correct information. Often, I find myself and others being better at extrapolating off of working examples than heady discussions and theory.
If you have gotten this far, thank you for your time.
