This issue is really kicking my butt at this point. I have 2 wAPs both on 6.34.2. I can't communicate with either of them now with anything but Netinstall.exe.
I connect to them, the formatting and loading of 6.34.2 works fine, it reboots and says "OK" as the status in Netinstall. I then unplug from the computer and plug it into my RB951G-2HnD. It pulls an IP address but has no "client id" or "active host name", I can't ping it from winbox or command line. The MAC address is a match, so I know it's the right hardware.
I thought I might have somehow disabled ether1, so I tried adding a simple config script. I was hoping this script would enable the interface, turn off any firewall blocking of input, and let it pull an IP address, and have it show up as TEST1 instead of nothing in host name/client. Added this as the configure script in net install.
/interface enable ether1
/ip firewall filter add chain=input action=accept
/ip dhcp-client interface=ether1 disabled=no
/system identity set name=TEST1
This is my first config script so I don't know if I even wrote it correctly, but it did not work.
Is my script wrong?
Does it automatically run the script on reboot?
If not, can I make it run automatically?
It still pulls an IP address but there is no host name/client id and still is not responding to pings.
I cannot see it in neighbor viewer and attempts to MAC telnet to it timeout. (One of them was initially visible in neighbor viewer, when it was version 6.32.4, was not viewable after update, not viewable if I downgrade back to 6.32.4.)
I have another wAP running 6.34.2 as a CAP that is working just fine. So it doesn't appear to be an issue with hardware/software versions.
Can anyone help me?
