Internet Connection Issue

Sat Jan 30, 2010 3:56 pm

I have a Mikrotik router OS on which I am using the hotspot feature.
Mikrotik connects to switch, which connects to an external access point.
External access point used is a Nanostation.
People can then login using Wifi to connect to the internet.
Most customers connect using Nanostations as well in client mode.
The problem I am experiencing is that some users have a perfect signal, when I ping my access point I get a reply with 2ms - 10ms, but I cannot ping my Mikrotik router.
Funnily, the client computer can even get an IP assigned by the Mikrotik router using DHCP. All the settings fall in correctly, but when I try to ping the router, I get a timeout and hence cannot get connected to the internet.
I have tried changing the IP for the client computer and his nanostation as well but no luck.

IPs are as follows:
Mikrotik Router IP - 192.168.0.1
Access point IP - 192.168.0.250
Client Nano IP - 192.168.0.142
Client Machine ip - Auto assigned ( 192.168.0.56)

From client computer, I get reply from 192.168.0.250. Signal on Nano is full, but when I ping 192.168.0.1 it times out.
This is happening on two three different customers while all the rest can access internet well.

Please advise......

Nanostations are realy designed to be customer CPE, not APs. They don't have much CPU power nor RAM. How many customers are connected? You might be exceeding the Nano's limitations.

You should really take this up on the Ubiquiti forums since it is probably not a Mikrotik problem unless you are running out of users with your license.

Reason for putting this up here is that when I bypass my Mikrotik router, it just works fine. ie. If I connect a computer with windows internet sharing as the server, it works fine.
The number of hotspot users are less than 20
