hAP lite hardware switch

Hi guys,
since we have some problems with some VoIP servers, we optimized them bridging internal customers' routers, but only hardware (in & out on same LAN switch). We want to use from now on this good AP by Mikrotik (http://routerboard.com/RB941-2nD-TC).
Only after various (not extensive) tests, also using PTP bridge (then using "bridge" feature as a software bridge) this product not operate exactly as a hardware bridge (4 example: master/slave on RB2100 or similar or TP-Link Routers).
Infact VoIP external server does not see CPE WAN IP but LAN IP.

Is there a better way to obtain that "harder" switch?

Many thanks

There is a hardware switch in hap lite. Just set common master port to the ports you want to have switched.
See: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Sw ... _Switching

Thanks jarda,
unique problem is that it appears as not having that classic menu (we see hAP through last winbox 3.2) with master/slave option on interface/ethernet :(

hap lite (not TC), 6.32.3 / 3.29, winbox 3.3.

I see switch menu with Atheros 8227 switch and also I can set master ports as I wish.
