I have recently purchased a MikroTik router with a wireless card. I have done the basic setup with this config (Wifi key and SSID are edited out, https://hastebin.com/egucaduxab.go).

 

Here is my ideal network config:

 

ISP (Vodafone) -> ONT

 

ONT -> Mikrotik RB493G

 

MikroTik RB493G -> STB (IPTV, Not satellite)

 

MikroTik RB493G -> CCTV System

 

MikroTik RB493G -> Cisco Switch

 

Cisco Switch -> Clients & Server

 

Server -> DHCP Server, DNS Server

 

 

 

I have gotten the Internet part to work fine before I switched over to the HomeHub in the wan port. I can still view the Vodafone test streams with the HomeHub in place but not with it in.

 

I want to move over to a microtik switch cause the amount of devices I have connected exceeds the amounts that Vodafone recommends (7) and my connection keep cutting out. To resolve

 

this I have to go and unplug the router and plug it back in. The cutouts occur 4 times a week at the most. They become annoying when I am gaming online and I get disconnected.

 

I have called up vodafone and been up to level 3 support and had something about VLAN 30 mentioned to me.

 

Could someone guide me into configuring my MikroTik router for Vodafone IPTV as well as trying to get my Internet to run again off this router.

 

 

 

Thanks ;D

You need to configure an IGMP proxy for the multicast traffic.

 Would I just use the example ones on the MikroTik wiki?

Forward all Multicast traffic to internal?

That'd do it - although the multicast traffic only needs to go to the stb.
