I have an established wireless/wired network using MT 3.1. Multiple static /30 subnets for my customers.
Trying to migrate from our former Hotspot solution to a MT hotspot solution.
Got things working great with the MT hotspot using radius and user-manager with a separate MT router UNATTACHED to my current network.
However as soon as I attach the HS router to the statically routed network (HS is a second router, another router is managing my static IPs) the network starts crashing and devices start becoming unpingable. Traffic slows to a halt/crawl and things just do not function. I have exhausted searches for IP conflicts. The HS box is a RB493/MT 3.25. I have tried different ports on the RB493. All to no avail.
Ideas to check for conflicts?
Interestingly the HS private IP gateway is 10.5.50.1/24. It is not the gateway for any device except the HS customer.
When the network crashes, testing from a PC on a statically routed network, I get a ping response to "ping 192.168.x.2" that says "10.5.50.1 can't find the host 192.168.x.2". This makes sense that 10.5.50.1 can't find something it is not routed to, but why is it asking 10.5.50.1 in the first place since 10.5.50.1 is not routed to by the computer I am on? Why isn't 192.168.x.1 responding?
