I've got a Mikrotik Groove A-HP4n on the boat
. I'm running the latest firmware and RouterOS. I've got an 8dbi antenna
I got from bitstorm. I'm in Marina Palmira in La Paz
, BCS, Mexico
If I connect to the marina wifi
on 2.4 GHz, we get internet
, but the speed is either slow, really slow, or painfully slow.
I switched over to 5GHz, and I connect, and I get a much faster connection, but for some reason the DHCP lease
I'm getting is only 30 seconds. So every 30 seconds the damn things loses it's IP and then reconnects a second or two later.
I tried putting a static IP in, but it looks like the marina wifi
doesn't like that. I don't get any traffic.
I've used all my google-**, and the only info I've found that may be appropriate was a mention of the RouterOS getting a private IP and renewing it 30 seconds later in an attempt to get a public IP. I have no idea what this feature is called or how to turn it off, if that's the problem.
Anybody have any ideas? I'm trying to get registered on the mikrotik forums
but their stupid captcha isn't working.
