Router: Routerboard 1100hx2
RouterOS:version 5 or 6 not sure
Connecting to router via Winbox

This router comes unconfigured. I am trying to use all ports for LAN except the WAN port. Ports 1-5 are part of a hardware switch and 6-10 are on switch 2, i guess the other three ports are independent?

I have set port 1 as WAN, and 3-5 as slaves of 2, and 7-10 as slaves of 6. I tried creating a bridge that in includes 2 and 6. When I created a DHCP server I get the notice "invalid" when I select bridge1 or any other interface other than eth1.

Got this fixed, but did not solve the overall problem. Put WAN port in bridge.
