src-address=255.255.255.255 dst-address=0.0.0.0 broadcasting

Sun Jun 29, 2008 9:42 pm

i can seein LAN interface src-address=255.255.255.255 dst-address=0.0.0.0 broadcasting packet which consume much bandwidth. I think my bandwidth performance also reduced with that.
can anyone tell me what type of broadcasting is that and how can i stop it.

it's just a client who hasn't configured an IP. Either setup a DHCP server or instruct your clients how to set up their IPs

that is winbox traffic. use IP to connect instead of MAC address and it will go away.
