To it, I connected a Mikrotik HAP ac2 (192.168.1.1)
Now, I want a computer that is plugged to Mikrotik eth2 port, to use a static IP from upper router , e.g computer use IP 192.168.0.5
On the computer I manually set gateway to 192.168.0.1 and ip 192.168.0.5, but ...
- I understand the Mikrotik needs to be setup as a DHCP relay ?
- I thought it might work directly since on the computer I manually specify upper gateway 192.168.0.1 and static ip 192.168.0.5
- That computer is only accessible once I add the eth1 to the bridge (like in image), is this correct / needed ?
- Why doesn't that bridge already contain the eth1 by default, but it contains all the other ports ?
This seems to be exact same situation and solution: as this topic says.
Problem solved everything works.
I added ether1 (WAN) to the bridge used for DHCP-relay.
