Has anyone had experience with the above?? I’m currently killing myself trying to make it worked. It was fine when I was with or on and trustpower but can’t do it for MyRepublic. I have removed the VLAN tagging as I know that there is none for this ISP. Any ideas??

Have a client with an MT on My Republic - works fine. They initially stuffed up the connection but it's been running now for years without issue.

 

As above check the masq rule and dhcp client have been updated to the correct interface.

Thanks I’ll give that a try.
I don’t suppose you might be able to give me more idiot proof instructions? Networking isn’t my area of expertise and I had to bastardise my last config to make it work

A Mikrotik with default (router) config should work fine on MyRepublic with no changes to the config required so you could just reset it if you wish (you'll lose any custom config of course).  If you have a MT with wifi you would need to configure it (easy to do via webfig for those that don't want to use the CLI or winbox).

 

If you want to keep your current config but just change the settings and can't get it to work then post your config here (remove passwords if any)

I would really appreciate some help if you don't mind. I set the system up a long time ago and fumbled through a lot of it.

 

I apologise if this setup looks terrible and none of it makes any sense. If it doesnt work - if you could give me the CLI type commands and I can probably figure it out from there.

 

Its currently set up going through the ISP router as a gateway (10.0.0.2)

This isn't currently setup as a router it's really just a switch that is looking after DHCP - there was a router connected to it at 10.0.0.2 which most likely the old trustpower router.

 

At a quick look you'll need to remove ether1 from the bridge, add DHCP client to ether1, add masq rule for ether1, add a drop rule for ether1 (important or you'll be hacked - quickly) and remove the current default route.  Not sure why you have some static addresses assigned in your DHCP set up on different subnets.

 

Oh and just to be clear ether1 goes straight into port1 on the ONT not the my republic router

Thanks so much! That did work. Really appreciate it.

 

Can you do me a favour and tell me if you think these firewall rules work ok?
