Thanks for your reply.
I currently managed 11 different with 15 Wifi relay on each. 3 of the are 100% Mikrotik, 6 are 100% linux based routers (quagga for routing) and 2 are mixed network. All this networks have 2 POP to link the network to Internet
If the default route is generated by a linux router at each side evry thing is ok
If i have routeros at the begining of the chain it doesn't propagate default route.
My guess is you should check something about the configuration.
I had default routes generated by both quagga linux box and MT, and it worked both ways.. A collegue has problems with a mixed quagga/MT/Bird environment, but seems a problem with bird, more than MT.
Is it difficult to migrate to BGP ? OSPF is easier ? Rip is very simple and effectif in my network size.
The easiest one is the one you know better =)
I find BGP quite straightforward, and i'm more used to it than OSPF (even if MT manages it in a quite different way than quagga, so i had problems setting it up at the beginning.)
I must thank the people on the forum for succeding... I understand that BGP in MT is not so complete as in quagga, but is reported to be solid, and this was my aim.
OSPF is much more flexible (as you can route based on link speed too, for example), but harder (in my point of view) to setup, and i understand from what i read and from reports from collegues that are using it that is not 100% stable on MT (please note that i cannot tell if this is the real situation or if it's because of some misconfiguration).
OSPF is not completely stable on Quagga too (if thing hasn't changed recently)
Do you think RouterOS is realy reliable ?
Thanks in advance
This is bad question to answer after i passed an horrible April because of stability issues. =)
The biggest issue was related to devices lockup, but it was a problem of MT version (2.9.20 don't use it on an RB)
The other problem i had was related to RIP loosing routes.
I just have another problem, which is related to wds loosing links for some seconds, seems to be a known problem, but everyone has a different solution that works for each one, but not for the others (neither for me =)
With 2.9.20 removed, all the routes managed by static or BGP (i'm slowly migrating to bgp), it seems all fine, i just hope it keeps so.
There are some rough points, but i consider it a stable product. I think it's the best you can use for wireless networking anyway =)
