I have noticed that there is something broken in the Mikrotik DNS Server with the Apple devices.

allow-remote-requests: yes (Policy only allow local sub-net for security reason)

On the DHCP Server the setting was;

ADDRESS GATEWAY DNS-SERVER
192.168.1.0/24 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1

Change to (this seem to be work ok)
ADDRESS GATEWAY DNS-SERVER
192.168.1.0/24 192.168.1.1 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4

To many viewers but no one advice. Any help or advice will appreciate.


The following adjustment also helped a lot
Change

From
group-key-update=5m

To
group-key-update=1h

You're welcome. Increasing dhcp lease time (from 15m to 2h) might also help.

Here's something that might help: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Wireless_FAQ

Why I can't connect to MikroTik 802.11n AP with Apple Mac devices?
This problem is only seen on Mac devices based on Broadcom wireless chipsets. In order to connect with such wireless device to MikroTik 802.11n AP make sure that you don't use 'short' preamble-mode. Use 'long' or 'both' preamble-mode and Mac wireless devices will be able to connect.
