Here I sit, Monday morning in eastern Zimbabwe. I have spent a weekend slowly getting to know Router OS and it's complexities, and have still failed to achieve my goal.
Briefly, I am looking to extend my wireless network from my office/warehouse to my home and that of my manager. To this end I ordered and received a R433AH routerboard with 3 PCI cards (R52-350) and two R411 based CPE units.
My current Wireless network is a D-Link 624 Router with gateway IP 192.168.0.1
I have set the R433AH with Eth1 as 192.168.0.2 and the WLAN1 as 192.168.0.4 (WLAN2 and WLAN3 are not in use as yet) and created a bridge between the two (bridge1). And my wirless devices detect WLAn1's SSID but cannot connect. I can connect using Winbox to both Eth1 and WLAN1.
I have spent hours on a slow internet connection finding documentation, reading and trying and have now run out of time as the work week has started, and with 18 hour days at work, I am desperately in need of how to setup a simple AP and CPE configuration.
Please note my R433AH is 18m in the air, so RS232 access is not an option, I must work through Eth1 (the POE LAN port). The CPE is lying on my ofice floor at the moment
I prefer working through Winbox, but if some kind soul sends me a MAC-Telnet script, I'll load it through the Terminal in Winbox.
