Ethernet ports not working

Mon Jan 14, 2019 10:02 am

I am using a mikrotik router RB951g since 1 year it was working perfectly.
Some days ago i the morning my internet was not workimg. When i troubleshoot it i obserce that my isp router is working fine but i can't acessinternet from mikrotik router. Then i ping it but is showed me an odd behaviour some packets shows request timout some shows unreachable and spme shpws no routes.
I am not able to access winbox from both lan and wan interface. It shows in neibours list for a fewseconds but can't connect.
Only i can access winbox from wifi. Accessing from wifi i again ping isp router and again same behaviour.
I have done every thing with it but no succes. I have hardreset it, flash it and alot more thinds but nothing hapened.
Then i unplug it an threw it in my drawer.
After some days i again tried to connect and i wondoer to see every thing working fine. I was very happy. I backed up old configuration and it start working and i slept.
In the next mprning it was again in that condition. now i messed up.
Now i observed that after 1 or tow days it works forsome hours and again goes in that state.
Experts please guide me if it is ahardware ofsoftware isse.
I'll b thankfull.

Looks like you are not firewalling your router, and it gets hacked.

1. Google for Netinstall
2. Set new strong Password
3. Set Konfig new from scratch/ no backup
4. read about firewalling
