I have setted up three mikrotik 2.9.5 boxes for three different customers that wanted hotspot access, simple configuration nothing fancy, but we are experiencing a weird behaviour on the LAN shares, we lost comunications on windows mapped drives and shares (this only happens when we enable the hotspot)
This is the scenario:
Internet <------> Mikrotik <-------> LAN
Mikrotik doing DHCP w/IP pool 192.168.0.200 - 192.168.0.254
LAN IP's 192.168.0.0/24, mikrotik LAN IP 192.168.0.254 and is the gateway for the LAN.
Some IP's on the LAN are fixed in the range 192.168.0.1 thru 200
Mikrotik doing hotspot for the ip pool 192.168.0.1 thru 253, profile with transparent web-proxy enabled.
No firewall rules at all (yet)
Everything works just perfect with the hotspot disabled, after we enable the hotspot, the users have the hotspot login screen, they login without a problem and they can browse the internet, but after a little while around a couple of minutes all the windows shares and mapped drives in the LAN start to dissconnect, sometimes we are not able to ping, even in the same network.... this happens both when user is logged or not logged in to the hotspot.
There are any firewall rules, only the ones that hotspot dynamically makes.
By the way we have setted up about ten like this scenarios using 2.8.X without a problem like this.
Any help ? Ideas? Please?
