Reasonably new to the Mikrotik world but hopefully at this stage not entirely clueless!
But I find myself stumped trying to configure to my particular set-up... I need my mikrotik to be the router for the subnet (I want its router functions for VPN and firewall stuff) but my gateway (a cell modem) is on the other side of a transparent-bridge radio link AND I need to be able to talk to the radio's themselves (their management host selves) on the LAN subnet.
So the question is how do I specify the WAN interface when the eth port is also part of the LAN bridge?
Maybe this is straight-forward and I've just been confusing myself.... is there a VLAN answer perhaps (I'm a vlan noob) which might mean I need a mikrotik over by cell modem to untag (presuming my cell can't natively do vlan stuff)?
The IP of the cell gateway can be whatever... could be on the same lan subnet (but I have a feeling thats a no-no if I'm telling all the clients the gateway is the tik (192.168.99.1) which would then route next hop to the cell on the same subnet) or something else.
Thanks for any insight.
