Vodafone Sure Signal Booster

Mon Feb 03, 2014 6:40 pm

Hi, has anyone managed to get a Vodafone Sure Signal 3G booster connected and working behind a RouterOS device, it is supposed to make an IPSEC connection to the Vodafone network over the internet but nothing I do appears to allow it to work. Any help will be gratefully received.

forget it, turns out the Vodafone sure signal only works if you can get 1500 byte MTU out to the internet.

Every Mikrotik can do 1500 byte MTU. Does your ISP use PPPoE or any other 'low MTU' protocol?

It depends on your firewall rules - use the wiki for IPSEC tunnels to find what type of traffic is used, and create rules that allow that kind of traffic to be forwarded to the local network or device. It should work under normal firewall rules, but who is to say what is normal, eh?

Have a fiddle around, and please drop some feedback after. It may help someone else :-).

I just thought - enable uPNP and make sure the interfaces are set correctly for it, before messing with the firewall. It may 'fix itself'.
