I work for a WISP and we have recently upgraded all of our network to 6.7-6.9. On some of the devices the Firewall is messed up. We first noticed it when trying to see how many connections a customer is creating when they were having some issues. When I go into IP - Firewall - Connections, it is completely blank. I also noticed that on the Service Ports tab, everything there is red which I believe means invalid. The one I am currently looking at was upgraded to 6.7 and is a RB493AH. It was upgraded with the standard upgrade .npk file, reboot and then doing firmware upgrade with system routerboard upgrade, reboot. Steps we have tried so far are:
Upgrading to 6.10
Doing a complete reset and setting up again from scratch
Also, the router I am currently looking at is completely routed. It is the main router for one of our towers. There are no firewall filters or NAT rules because we generally do that on our boarder unless there is a specific need. Everything else seems to work fine. Routing is done with OSPF. I would be glad to provide any other information on this issue. I would really like to have a way of fixing it without swapping out the router as this would force us to go to quite a bit of tower sites because this is not the only router that is like this after upgrading. It has not however effected all of the routers we upgraded and there does not seem to be a pattern of routeros version (6.7, 6.9, 6.10) or Model.
