I am testing a Metanoia V5311 SFP and I have not been able to get it working. Everything seems to be in order and I have consulted multiple sources (including @michaelmurphy guide) but it just won't connect.

 

The logs say initialising, connecting, terminated/disconnected. I have called InspireNet and they report no auth attempts showing at their end.

 

I have setup a PPPoE client on Vlan 10 and this vlan-10 is tied to interface SFP 1.

 

So far, this is the most complicated and least (well basically none) documented VDSL modem I have ever come across. A Google shows several other people asking about it but getting no substantial replies.

 

I'm hoping that someone here may have a solution or a sample config please.

I have found the solution.

 

The SFP settings must be specified as follows:

 

Auto negotiation = off

 

Speed = 1Gbps full duplex

Wow I didn't even know such a device existed. I wish I knew about that a couple of weeks ago :)

Hi, yes I also mentioned that the device will not auto negotiate.

 

But Michael, I assume now that is sorted the device is working ok, what sync rates are you getting relative to previous modem, keen to hear

I don't know yet but will post when I find out. Right now, I am trying to get my head around the Mikrotik bridges, ethernet interfaces and vlans. Based on the docs, the config I have should trunk vlan40 and vlan50 to the switch where I have my access ports. But it ain't working yet.

You're probably aware, but there was some significant changes to bridge implementation with RouterOS 6.41 onwards - don't get confused with older documentation.

Yep, as RunningMan says, most documentation surrounds older (actually quite recent) implementations, which is different to lattest.

I am using Winbox and have -

 

1. Set up 2 IP address pools - 1 public and 1 private

 

2. Tied them to Vlans 40 and 50

 

3. Removed port 4 from the default "bridge" interface

 

4. Tied Vlans 40 and 50 to port 4 (this should have the effect of creating a trunk?)

 

I can't ping the Vlan gateway IP address.

Have you created an address and tied that to the VLAN?

 

/IP addresses

Yes - vlan40 is public IP's and vlan 50 is rfc1918 192.168* IP's.

RouterOS is complex. If you've never used it before and want to start doing anything that's not in the wizard the is realistically a few months of learning ahead and reading.

 

It's why I never recommend it as a solution to people. smile

Hi, maybe just back the bus up a bit and get a basic network going, then start adding other networks to bootstrap your understanding.

 

Edit: Also do the addresses you created show as reachable in Routes and shown as connected to the vlan

When I needed scripts to achieve what I wanted to do on routerOs, I hired a Ukrainian from upwork.com for a fixed price think it was 20usd to set up a dual wan failover. using a ppoe and static gateway.

 

would do this again,

Personally, I either learn how to do it myself or pay someone a fair amount to do it for me.

Update - Making good progress. I had entered my public IP syntax incorrectly in the VLAN configuration and fixing this up made a big difference. I am now close to having similiar functionality to what I had with the Cisco - thus restoring the functionality of my network.

 

I had entered GW IP and netmask in the 2 spaces whereas I should have entered GW/netmask all in the same place.

 

Latency with the V5311 SFP has improved by around 3ms at the expense of some upload speed, which has gone from circa 25 to 20Mbps. Download speed is fairly similar at around 49Mbps.I have observed identical performance on both NAT and public-IP direct tests.

 

DLM has been unkind to me over the last few days likely due to my chopping and changing. I was getting as high as 59/29 recently.
