I have some questions related to a desired set-up and some issues which don't work - any input/feedback is appreciated, thanks!
- Router "0" (ISP) --> Router #1 running RouterOS (CRS328) --> Router #2(CRS328) running RouterOS
Router 0 to #1: RJ45 to ETH1
R#1 to R#2: Fiber via SFP1 to SFP1
I would like to have separate networks for the ISP Router#0 and the both MikroTik Router#1
- R#0: 192.168.178.xxx
R#1: Router Mode / Port: ETH1 / Automatic Address acquisition
Internet: IP: 192.168.178.59 / 255.255.255.0 / Gateway: 192.168.178.1
LAN: 192.168.88.11 / 255.255.255.0 / DHCP- Server: ON / DHCP-Range: 192.168.88.21-199 / NAT: ON
Now i would like to connect Router #2 - either as Router or Bridge (what would you suggest?)
A.) as Router
R#2: Router Mode / Port: SFP1 / Automatic Address acquisition
Internet: IP: 192.168.88.192 / 255.255.255.0 / Gateway: 192.168.88.11
LAN: 192.168.88.12 / 255.255.255.0 / DHCP- Server: ON / DHCP-Range: 192.168.88.205-239 / NAT: ON
- when connected via RJ45 to R#2 with a Computer, I can't access the Internet, e.g. google.com (ping of 22.214.171.124 works though from the Router#2 console and connected PC)?
- what setting am I missing?
B.) as Bridge
- Automatic Address acquisition / Address Source: Any
--> Internet via a connected PC to R#2 works in static Bridge mode, but weirdly I get IP-addresses assigned which are out of R#1 range (i got 192.168.88.207)
- - ideally i would let the both Routers run as Routers & DHCP-Servers - is that possible? what am I missing for case A.)?
- - if in bridge mode, why do i get these out of range IP-addresses?
