Big networking hobbyist here, but first time MikroTik user. I recently picked up a CRS317 to serve as my rack mounted main switch.
Since I am not planning on using the Layer3 functionality of this switch, I figured I'd move better off keeping it simple and switched over from Router is to SwOS.
Initial setup went great. I configured my VLAN's got everything talking to everything it should. Because I just moved, my internet was not up yet, so I was temporarily stuck on the shipping firmware (SwOS 2.7).
My internet was activated today. One of the first things I did was to update the switch to the latest 2.11 version. Of SwOS.
The update seemingly proceeded normally. The switch came back up after rebooting, switching works normally, just as before, but now I can no longer access the web configuration page. It also does not respond to pings.
I used the reset procedure with the reset switch on the front, the LED blinked and it rebooted, but once back up again it is the same. Switching works, but the management interface cannot be accessed. I have tried both on the IP I set it to, and manually setting my laptop I am using to set things up to 192.168.88.2/24 and access it at 192.168.88.1, neither with any success.
Any suggestions on how to get this working again would be greatly appreciated!
I wouldn't be too sad if I just had to hard reset the thing to factory defaults, but I cant figure out how to do that. Would using this WinBox utility do that? I didn't use it initially as I am primarily a Linux user and preferred to set it up via Web interface, but if it could be helpful I'll try it.
