We just have a batch that updates our Mikrotik routers weekly. Same with backups. We haven’t had a single update cause any problems that affected our network… that we noticed.
Our DHCP is very basic as well. We have everything set up through Winbox.
- On the DHCP tab We have the name, interface, lease time, address pool name and Yes add to ARP
- On the Networks tab, we have a /24 subnet under address, a gateway and 3 DNS servers.
- No options or anything else set.
We have one AP running 18.104.22.168 and another 2.3.3 (with the bad satellite signal).
I’d have to go back and figure out what combination of things worked and what didn’t we had issues with customer routers getting IP addresses. We have C5’ with firmware ranging from 2.3.3 to 2.4.1
We stopped updating firmware on the A5s and C5s because it seemed that every time we did, it created truck rolls to multiple clients and pissed them off. We are gun shy. The one C5 running 2.4.1 is at my home so that’s an easy one to test with late at night.
