This is just for Your information and is absolutely NOT a complaint - love Your routers and the OpenVPN implementation.
The last couple of weeks i have been looking into which travel router to choose for the upcomming summer holiday.
I have been testing (amongst others):
GL-MT300N-V2 - firmware 2.27
GL-AR750 - firmware 2.27
The problem is, that the small GL-MT300N-V2 is unable to connect to my Mikrotik APs. I have tried 3 diffrent models (hAP lite, WAP ac and a RB2011UiAS-2HnD-IN) - have too many routers laying around
Testing was done the following way(using newest GL.iNet firmware 2.27 and RouterOS 6.41.3 on the Mikrotiks):
On the Mikrotik router:
reset the mikrotik routers/ap’s to factory default.
ran quickset using winbox - Set mode to “Home AP” - set WIfi password, using WPA2(aes ccm), set Wifi channel to 6 (have also tried channel 1 and 11 and “auto”), 20Mhz channel width and set Country to “Denmark”
On the GL-MT300N-V2:
reset GL-MT300N-V2 to Factory defaults
ran initial setup and tried to connect to the mikrotik router, using Repeater/WISP mode.
Seems the GL-MT300N-V2 is not able to create the connection to the Mikrotik router, it just hangs, not getting an IP.
have tried the EXACT same setup with the GL-AR750 - And on that router everything works perfectly
have tried the GL-MT300N-V2 on other accesspoints (ubiquiti AP AC PRO, using the 2G radio) and on a couple of TP-Link routers. WISP mode works perfectly on these APs/routers as well.
So this only seems to consern GL-MT300N-V2 vs. Mikrotik
Have You heard of this issue before ?
Problem is a lot of Hotels/bars/restaurants have Mikrotik gear - so it would be nice if someone had a solution for this problem on the GL-MT300N-V2
