windbox can't find router

Sat Dec 03, 2011 2:25 pm


I have RB750GL router. My windbox on PC can't find my Mikrotik router.

1) If I plug the Mikrotik directly to the PC, everything works well.
2) If i plug another router between PC and Mikrotik, I can see IP address is set and I can ping the Mikrotik
When I try to connect the Mikrotik using windbox, router's Led blink once, but windbox cant access it...

I did checked another router's setup and didnt fint any problem. The firewall on the PC also disabled...

Any ideas please?

if you want to reach to router (A) , you must bridge the interface (ether1) that connected to router (A) with the interface (ether2) connect to your pc in the main router (B).

router A < ---ether1---- router B ----ether2---> PC

Are you trying to access the MikroTik with winbox using MAC address, or IP address? MAC will not work, as it is router network now :). If ping works - then Winbox should be able to connect to the IP address :).
