Completely Lost!

Sun Jun 28, 2009 7:24 am

I have been working on an issue for 4 days now and cannot for the life of me figure out what’s going on. I am sure I am overlooking something basic but I have no idea what it could be, If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.

My Setup:

RB-1000u, eth1 is WAN, eth2 is WLan, eth3 is open, eth4 has a server plugged into it.

First RB493AH plugged into eth2 of the RB-1000, I can plug a laptop into any of the ports and get an internet connection and ping anything in the network. This has 2 R5H radios, One set as a bridge (wlan1) and the other (wlan2) as ap-bridge. Wlan2 is disabled right now.

Second RB493AH, again, 2 radios, one set as a station and linked to the first RB493AH, the other as a ap-bridge and this one is active. I can plug a laptop into any of the ports and get an internet connection and ping anything in the network.

RB411 with a R52H radio, now the problems start, I can plug a laptop into the data port of the POE and both the RB411 and the Laptop get a IP assigned by the DHCP server (RB-1000), the 411 can ping the laptop, the laptop can ping the 411 and nothing else.

The 411 establishes a successful link to the ap-bridge radio on the second 493AH but no internet, the dude software shows the 411 and the laptop as down (Ping). But as I said they do get an IP address from the RB-1000. I’m Lost!

Thanks for ANY suggestions!

You didn't give enough details on the radio configs. I assume you are bridging. Are you running WDS dynamic? Station-wds on the RB411? Did you setup a bridge and add both ether1 and wlan to the bridge?

Good luck,

I guess that would help a bit huh? Thanks Tom,

Here is the config I exported from the 411 router:

Well, I supose you are using bridge onr you setup. If it is what you trying to do I think the better
way to do is using WDS and adding ports to the bridge. Look this howto ... o_Networks
and check your conf.
