If you are experiencing high ping times and/or slower than normal internet speeds, you might be a victim fo a DNS DoS attack. This article will walk you through creating a firewall rule on Mikrotik routers to block this attack. * Log into your Mikro...
SIP ALG EXPLAINED Many of today's commercial routers implement SIP ALG (Application-level gateway), coming with this feature enabled by default. While ALG could help in solving NAT related problems, the fact is that many routers' ALG implementations are...
HOW TO MAKE A MIKROTIK ACT AS A WIRELESS STATION *PURPOSE: In this case, we have a customer that uses a wireless cell modem for Internet access which lacks ethernet ports, but we would also like to give access to some devices that are not wifi enabled. ...
By default Mikrotik use the following LAN subnet, 192.168.88.0/24 with the gateway IP being 192.168.88.1. For this example the Mikrotik's subnet is being changed to 10.0.0.0/24 with a gateway IP of 10.0.0.1. There are six items that will be updated. ...
WHAT IS OPTION 66? Option 66 is a feature available in most commercial grade routers which enables offering a 'provisioning server address' to any device on the same LAN and obtaining an IP via DHCP. This method of "broadcasting" the server address to m...
In the event port forwarding is needed, a NAT Rule will need to be created in the Mikrotik. For this example, the NAT Rule is to allow access to a device on IP 192.168.88.100 using port 80 (extension 100). For devices such as onsite PBX that have remo...
The following is an illustration of a basic network setup with a Miktrotik and a Firewall. The idea is to have the Miktrotik provide QoS for the phones on a seprate network from computers and other network devices. This is accomplished by setting static...
To set QoS or Quality of Service successfully, we first want to know the rates that the internet circuit is stable at. _- What does that mean?_ When running a capacity speed test (such as speedtest.net), the results will reflect the speed of the circu...
To access the mikrotik, please change your network settings to be able to access 192.168.88.1 which is the default IP address of the Mikrotik. Once the network settings have been updated, please connect to ETH2 or PORT 2 to access the LAN connection. Pl...
