Re: 5009 Power-in breaks when using rack kit

So, you can power the 4 RB5009 from that power source when they are separated but then, if you make them sharing the ground (by screwing them together to the rack) the PoE PSE powers off? Since the issue happens with just three of them, does it happen with *any* three of them? I.e. could it be a def...

Wlan2/Wlanlocal is part of the bridge (with ether2-5), Wlan1/Wlanrelay is not.
So you don't seem like bridging the two WiFi, but rather routing :-? , and you have a srcnat masquerade with out interface Wlanrelay.

Re: Bridge and Web Interface [SOLVED]

Well, thanks for the help so far. I am assuming from your answer that the web admin SHOULD be available on any bridge and that I have done something to prevent it. If you can confirm that, it takes me some way towards my goal. I am not looking for a fix, because it is working as I want. I am lookin...

Re: Bridge and Web Interface [SOLVED]

Yep, but then it becomes a guessing game.
Without knowing what you have done, it is difficult to say what you missed or overdid.
Anyway, my money is on the second bridge not being in the LAN interface list and a firewall rule blocking interface-list=!LAN.
(but it is rare that I win this kind of bets)

No.
A backup won't work even for an identical hex.

Re: Bridge and Web Interface [SOLVED]

There are different possibile settings in different areas of a configuration that may allow (or prevent) connection. These settings may be linked to the interface (self-standing) or to the bridge, to their belonging (or not belonging) to an interface list, to firewall nat or filters/rules (that can ...

Re: hAP ax3 + Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac = bad wifi speed [SOLVED]

Edit: using TX power 10 dBm (on the laptop) I got 180 Mbps download and 97 Mbps upload. My WAN is 1 Gbps download and 100 Mbps upload. So maybe the 180-190 is like the max speed available on that notebook? I have not understood if on that notebook you are dual booting Windows and Linux, if not test...

The OP stated that he got the network, specifically 192.168.200. 0 /24 instead of the expected 192.168.200. 1 , that's why I was perplexed. Now that is clear that the difference is that he got 192.168.200. 1 /24 while he wanted only the IP address without the /24, everything is back to normality. St...

@holvoeth I don't think anyone is attempting to blame Mikrotik for the issue, and actually it is rather pointless to blame anyone, there is a problem and this problem should be solved, one way or the other. If the device (or the Os or the driver) is incompatible with *something* that Mikrotik does (...

What jaclaz writes is not correct, you CAN apply the exported config in the same order as it was exported.

There is not AFAIK a proper, automated, mechanism to "clone" the configuration of a device to another one, even if it is the exact same model. The backup is intended to be restored ONLY on the SAME device. The possible approaches are: 1) (as you are doing now) remove configuration and copy...

I've heard of these Ethernet PHrY things. Yours appears to be based on SET technology…smoke-emitting transformer. 🤣
The technology is better known as MSEC (magic smoke emitting component), the magic smoke has even an entry in Wikipedia:
