Detect Internet is a tool that categorizes monitored interfaces into following states - Internet, WAN, LAN, unknown and no-link.
All layer 2 interfaces initially have this state.
Any L3 tunnel and LTE interfaces will initially have this state. Layer 2 interfaces can obtain this state if:
- interface has an active route to 220.127.116.11 in main routing table.
- interface can obtain (or has obtained) an address from DHCP (does not apply if DHCP server is also running Detect Internet on the DHCP server interface).
WAN interfaces that can reach cloud.mikrotik.com using UDP protocol port 30000 can obtain this state. Reachability is checked every minute. If cloud is not reached for 3 minutes, state falls back to WAN.
|detect-interface-list (interface list; Default: none)||All interfaces in the list will be monitored by Detect Internet|
|internet-interface-list (interface list; Default: none)||Interfaces with state Internet will be dynamically added to this list|
|lan-interface-list (interface list; Default: none)||Interfaces with state Lan will be dynamically added to this list|
|wan-interface-list (interface list; Default: none)||Interfaces with state Wan will be dynamically added to this list|
/interface detect-internet state
This submenu displays status of all monitored interfaces defined by detect-interface-list parameter.
