I was dealing with apparently the same issue couple of years ago as well (viewtopic.php?t=107336), but solution used then, does not work now.
Basic set-up is this.
2x hAP routers. Both RouterOS v6.44.1
is border router/firewall directly connected to ISP. It runs DHCP server. DHCP range is very small 192.168.1.10 - 192.168.1.40.
LAN is 192.168.1.0/24
IP for the router is 192.168.1.1
Another router is in another part of the building (for WiFi coverage). it is set up using Quick Set interface as follows:
Set to WISP AP
Address Acquisition: Static
IP address: 192.168.1.2
“AP” port 1 is connected to “Border Router” port 5, so that “AP” is using PoE.
If I connect any device (to RJ45 or wirelessly) to “AP”, the device does get IP via DHCP from “Border Router” and does get internet access.
I can ping “AP” (192.168.1.2)
But I cannot connect to “AP” (192.168.1.2) via web interface (service is enabled) or via WinBox (service is enabled) via IP. I can only connect to “AP” using WinBox and via MAC address. Since I use Linux with HiDPI, WinBox is pretty much unusable and I have to boot into Windows to connect to “AP”.
What am I missing? How to I make “AP” (192.168.1.2) manageable via Web Interface from device on 192.168.1.0/24 network?
