Hi,

I've finally decided on using MikroTik for NZ UFB solutions.

The model I have here is RB951Ui-2HnD, but since Miktrotik all runs on routerOS I am guessing the setup should be similar on different models.


I am completely new to routerOS and I want to use this router as a basic CPE. Can any share some step by step knowledge as how to setup RouterOS from out of box (default) with NZ UFB. The ISPs I am with are Orcon and 2talk. 



Many thanks in advance.


Cheers

If this is your first time with RouterOS I would suggest letting it load the default configuration.
Defaults will set the LAN subnet, put on a DHCP server, set up NAT & firewalling and put a DHCP client on on ether1 for WAN.

After it has done that it is just a case of removing the DHCP client on ether1, adding a VLAN (ID of 10 specifically)interface to ether1 and then put a DHCP client back on the VLAN interface. I think for Orcon you may have to spoof the MAC address too but I'm not sure.
Then it just a simple change on the NAT masquerade rule to go to the new interface and put in a new drop rule for your firewall (to stop stuff from the internet coming in).

After that you will have internet connectivity and can screw around to your hearts content with RouterOS.

I should probably say to that you will want to upgrade to 6.13 because you can guarantee it won't have shipped with that. Netinstall is a quick, easy way to do this.

No need to do that.  VLAN 10 with DHCP on it should be fine.

Now what about VF UFB?

VLAN 10 for internet?
Mac Addy spoofing
VLAN xx? for VF TV?
Add firewall

Then all good? Anyone know?

I get VF UFB next week with VF TV. I would like to use my rb2011 instead of the supplied VF modem/router.

Have anyone used an alternative ufb router with slingshot? I noticed when I used a different router with mac/address changes the speed was like 1/4 than normal.  Like they're punishing you trying a different router..

Hi,

Many thanks for the helpful reply

I have a new problem now. I will soon have two other organisations sharing the internet via this router. 

First I will do is setup different VLANs for each organisations to separate the network. I have some experience setting vlans on other routers but not routerOS. I don't expect this will be too difficult as this is quite a common thing to do. But anybody can give me some pointers for routerOS interface for such setup will be much appreciated.

secondly, I will obtain multiple public IP from my ISP, Orcon. The idea is so I can provide each organisation its own public IP for them to do their hosting. So in a way I will become a very tinny ISP myself. This is the difficult one I have no idea where to start. Can this be done in routerOS at all?

Cheers.

you can do anything in routerOS

you don't necessarily need two vlans, just set up two different networks with separate dhcp servers and block forwarding between the two.  each network is routed to their own external IP

netinstall to do the update? /system package update check-for-update is all you need
