I have a point to point wireless connection using two mikrotiks. When I plug the mikrotik into a switch with just my laptop I get an IP address conflict on my machine no matter what IP I am assigned. Using wireshark i see the conflicts are from the mac address of the mikrotik on the other end of the wireless connection. Why is it conflicting with multiple IP addresses when the router itself is assigned a single IP address with no NAT entries or anything like that? I included a little diagram to help visualize my issue
[me] [mikrotik] --------------[problem mikrotik]----(other equipment on diff subnet)
The problem mikrotik has a wan on the same subnet as my machine. The lan is a different subnet. Any ideas? When I plug the equipment into my network I get IP conflicts on a lot of different servers. Took me forever to isolate it to this mikrotik! Thanks
Oh and all this equipment has been working previously with no known changes made to the configs. It just started acting up recently.
