Could somebody please explain or give a hint what could cause this behaviour ?
I have a RB751G-2HnD set up as a client and connected to a wireless AP ( which I have no access to ). The router connects to the wireless just fine, can reach all it needs as well as the clients behind RB751G's NAT are fine.
The thing I don't understand is, when I scan the wireless LAN (from another client connected to the wireless AP) I cannot see or access the mikrotik router unless the mikrotik itself (or any client behind this router) tries to contact the 'scanning' device in the wireless LAN first. Then it's reachable for a while and after some timeout I can't access it again from 'outside' (through the wlan1 interface). [seems like when ARP cache on that AP expires, mikrotik is unreachable again]
note: the mikrotik router and some clients are connected to the internet (via the AP) the whole time and constantly communicating without any issues.
Any other device on the wireless LAN doesn't have this problem -> other devices are accessible and visible on the wireless LAN.
note: the firewall on the mikrotik router doesn't affect this as I had it turned off completely and the situation was the same
Unfortunately I have no access to the AP to check more details.
Code: Select all
AP + 192.168.0.0/24 | | | .20 +----+----+-------+------->MIKROTIK | | | + v v v | 192.168.5.0/24 .10 .11 .30 | +----+----+ | | | + + +
I would be very grateful If somebody could make this a bit more clear to me. Can this behaviour be achieved by some wireless feature ? Is it a bug ? (in the AP? or mikrotik ?) Thank you
edit: forgot to mention, I am running ROS6.5
