How to Monitor MikroTik Network Connections with Netwatch

Netwatch is one of the features of RouterOS which functions to monitor network connections whether it’s up or down. So we will immediately find out the condition of the Mikrotik network when it is down and up again via e-mail or SMS.

How Netwatch Works
The concept is like this, Netwatch will ping certain hosts (IP address or domain) with certain time intervals such as ping every 1 minute. If when the netwatch ping hosts the Reply, it means that the connection is up and if Request timed out (RTO) means down. Each condition of Up and Down can we enter certain scripts as needed. We can also enter the script to send an email or automatic SMS if the network connection condition is up or down.

Well, I already know how Netwatch works. In this article we will learn mikrotik about How to Monitor Microtic Network Connections with Netwatch notification via e-mail. Why email? Why hey ?? Tell us what? : P Previously, it was discussed about e-mail in this article How to set up e-mail and send e-mail on RouterOS microtic. Please read first to understand. Why don’t you just use SMS? Not all Mikrotik supports SMS because only the RouterBoard has a USB port or the SIMCard can only text.
How to set Mikrotik Netwatch
Before starting, make sure you have set up the Mikrotik email configuration.

If we have set the Mikrotik Netwatch:

  • Open Winbox, go to the Tools menu -> Netwatch
  • Click the + button to add netwatch host.
  • Fill in the Host with google.com or its IP address 74.125.135.138. Why Google? We choose Google because Google servers are always alive.

Interval: what is the time interval for each ping (default = 1 minute)
Timeout: how big is the timeout indication (default = 1000ms) if the reply is more than 1000ms, RTO will be calculated.

  • Click Apply -> Ok
  • Enter tab Up. Here we can enter the script to send e-mail automatically when internet is up. Here is an example of the script:

/tool e-mail send to=”[email protected]” from=”[email protected]” body=”Internet Normal. by MikrotikIndo.blogspot.com” tls=yes subjet=”Cennection Monitor Mikrotik = UP”

  • Please edit the script yourself, fill in your e-mail yourself. If already click Apply -> Ok
  • Please try to disconnect the internet connection from your Mikrotik a few moments then connect again.
  • Check the inbox in the destination email that you entered in the script. If the settings are correct, a notification email will appear if the internet connection is down and up again.

Collection of Microtic and Networking Terms

For those of you who are still unfamiliar with MikroTik, you must be confused with terms related to Mikrotik. What are the terms in the Mikrotik?

The following is a collection of terms in the Mikrotik which often appear Mikrotik menus:

  1. System, a package that must be installed because it is the core of Mikrotik
  2. PPP (Point to Point Protocol), is a package that contains the PPP protocol. This package is required for serial communication features using PPP, ISDN PPP, L2TP, and PPTP and PPP on Ethernet (PPPoE) communication. PPP packages are used for Wide Area Network communication by using asyncronous and synchronous mode serial communication.
  3. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), a package that contains both DHCP features needed to become a client or server.
  4. Advanced-tools, includes e-mail client features, ping, netwatch, traceroute, bandwidth tester, traffic monitoring, technology, and other utilities, which are often needed to determine the condition of the router and network. Netwatch feature is one feature that allows Mikrotik to be smarter and can choose configurations based on the script (order sequence) according to network conditions (netwatch).
  5. Arlan, is a proxy support for using ISA cards arlan 655 Wireless Interface in order to transparently communicate with their opponents.
  6. GPS, proxy can use the Global Poetry System (GPS) receiver as a reference for Network Time Protocol (NTP) time and location.
  7. Hotspot, is used to carry out authentication, authorization and accounting users who do network access through a hotspot gate. Hotspot users before accessing the network need to authenticate via a web browser with both http and https (secure http) protocols.
  8. ISDN, proxy router can function as an ISDN client or server. Dial-up functions can be set permanently or dial-on-demand. The IP address given by the ISP can be used as the default route table.
  9. LCD, is used to display information on microtic system conditions via a mini LCD layer that is connected to parallel or USB.
  10. NTP (Network Time Protocol), is used to align computer time systems in a network.
  11. LAN radio, proxy supports the use of wireless radio LAN.
  12. The Router Board, is used to support proxy usage on special circuit boards. The special circuit board is basically the minimum computer (without hard disk controller, VGA and sound) with a network card, the power supply is simpler (enough + 12 VDC) and the performance is very minimum. The router board that can be used by proxy is a 200 and 500 router board
  13. Routing is needed if the network uses routing dynamic. Mikrotik can use RIP, OSPF, and BGP version 4.
  14. Security, contains support for communication security. This package is required by proxy to run IP security (IP Sec), Secure Shell, and to run Win Box in safe mode.
  15. Phone, useful for managing communication services using Voice Over IP (VoIP). This package in addition to providing the gatekeeper function also supports the use of some VoIP hardware attached to the Mikrotik Router OS.
  16. UPS, this feature makes it easy for administrators to monitor and secure the router from damage due to power supply interference. To do this, the router will always monitor the UPS battery condition when the main power supply is not available. If the condition of the UPS battery is below 10% then this feature instructs rauter to be in hibernate state and ready to return to active when the main power supply is back.
  17. Mikrotik web proxy, at the same time can be used as a normal HTTP proxy and transparent.

Tutorial on How to Reset Microtics

There are various reasons for us to do microtic reset. Starting from forgetting the password (Password reset), to return to the default conditions, until the system refreshes. Well, for those of you who want to reset the proxy, here are 3 ways to reset the proxy. Please see:

  • The first way


The first way is through the console or Winbox. Enter the console and do the command:

/system reset

later there will be a question whether we really want to reset, just answer Y (es).
with the above command, our proxy will be set to the default configuration which is usually port ether2 given dhcp with ip 192.168.88.1/24

sometimes the default configuration is actually annoying for our future configuration. my advice is just throwing away the basic configuration. The way to get rid of it is if we already reset it with the above method, later when we enter via Winbox there is a pop-up whether we will discard the initial configuration or not. the second way so that when we reset does not make the initial configuration, the request is

/system reset-configuration no-default=yes

  • Second way


The second way is to press the reset button. Please look for the reset button because each routerboard has different places but usually there is a small hole in the routerboard and must be pricked using a tool because it can’t be directly with the fingers, usually I use the tip of the pen to stab it, but be careful not to be too strong because the button is vulnerable. Slowly but feel the “tek” sound because the button has been pressed. Many beginners are hard pressed until the button is dislodged. The way to reset it is swallow the reset button and do not remove it, then unplug and install the power so that the routerboard is on. wait a while until the light blinks. After that restart the routerboard.

How to Reset Microtic RB750

  • Remove the power cable
  • Press the reset button without being released, then plug the power cord in the condition that the reset button is still pressed
  • Wait until the ACT light stops flashing
  • Try checking with Winbox

How to Reset Microcomputer RB RB750 / RB951 / RB751

All current RouterBOARD models also have a reset jumper hole. Some devices may need to open the chassis to reset, RB750 / RB951 / RB751 have a jumper hole under one of the rubber feet on the case.
Use: Close the jumper with a metal screwdriver, and reboot so that the configuration is deleted.

How to RB133 Microtic Reset

Note: For RB133, don’t forget to remove the jumper after the configuration is reset, or your proxy will continue to reset every time you reboot.

  • Third way

If the two methods above don’t work, the third way is to open the case and do the jumpers. Search on the pcb routerboard for a circular brass plate but cut it off as if it were two semicircular faces. Just press with a screwdriver or other delivery object so that the two semicircles are connected.

Tutorial How to Install Mikrotik with Netinstall

What is Netinstall?
Based on sources from the Mikrotik wiki, Netinstall is a program that runs on Windows computers that allows you to install MikroTik RouterOS to a PC or to a RouterBoard via an Ethernet network. Netinstall is also used to reinstall RouterOS in cases where the previous installation failed, it becomes corrupt or the access password is lost.

Your device must support booting from ethernet, and there must be an ethernet link directly from the netinstall computer to the target device. All RouterBOARD support for PXE network boot, must be activated either in the RouterOS “Routerboard” menu if RouterOS is operating, or in bootloader settings. For this, you will need a serial cable.

Note: For RouterBOARD devices without serial ports, and no RouterOS access, the reset button can also start PXE boot mode. See RouterBOARD PDF instructions for details. For example RB750 PDF Netinstall can also directly install RouterOS on a disk (USB / CF / IDE / SATA) that is connected to a Windows netinstall machine. After installation just move the disk to the Router machine and boot from it.

Well, so basically Netinstall can be used to reset the Mikrotik password when we forget the proxy password and also when a system failure occurs in the previous installation process. Then why should you use Netinstall? Why isn’t the upgrade just being reset?

Here’s the difference between Netinstall and Upgrade:

The formatting drive process occurs in netinstall but does not occur in the upgrade. So what’s the effect? We know that proxy provides small memory and when the upgrade process, there are some data that we might not use but still take place there. With NetInstall, first clean the entire storage area by formatting the drive after the system is inserted.

Okay, it’s clear, isn’t that what Netisntall is. Now we just try to install the proxy with Netinstall.

How do you do NetInstall?

Equipment:

  • NetInstall Software (download from http://mikrotik.com/download)
  • UTP cable
  • Microtic software files according to the type (x86, mpsbe, mipsle)

In some literacies there must be a serial cable, but I have tried it without serial cable and it works. The function of this serial cable is to change the boot flow of devices that by default boot from the internal disk to boot from the network.

  • Download the Netinstall program from the http://www.mikrotik.com/download.html page
  • Download the combined routerOS package from the page http://www.mikrotik.com/download.html, adjust it to your router type and the version you want to use.
  • Your PC settings use static IP. (for example: IP 192.168.12.19 netmask 255.255.255.0) and plug the ethernet cable from your PC to your router ether1 port.
  • Run the Netinstall program and press the Net boot button, then you enable / check Boot Server enabled, then fill in the Client IP address with one IP subnet with your PC’s static IP (for example: 192.168.12.3) and press ok.
  • Press the browse button and select the folder where you saved the * .npk file that you downloaded in step 2. in this case because the net install will be for the type RB1000 series then the packet used is mipsle if what you are going to net install is the type of RB400 series or RB750 series then use the mipsbe
  • Unplug your router adapter
  • Press the small reset button on your router, and you hold it.
  • While still holding, you turn on the power adapter
  • Wait a few moments, later in the Netinstall program you will see the mac-address of your router.
  • Release the reset button, then you tap your router’s mac-address in the Netinstall program and select the package you will use for installation (checked)
  • Press the install button, then the installation process will be displayed in the Netinstall program.
  • If the installation process is complete, the Install button will change to reboot, please press the button and the installation process is complete.

Note:

  1. Don’t force it to press the reset button because it can cause the reset button to break. If your router has a serial port, we recommend that you use a serial cable to change the boot-device to an ethernet port
  2. The Installation process using Netinstall will delete all of your router configurations, so the default username = admin, password = (blank does not need to be filled)

Forgot Mikrotik Username & Password? This is the solution

Solution See the Mikrotik Username and Password if You Forget – Humans can not be separated from the disease FORGET. Yes, you may have forgotten your Mikrotik password or forgot the Mikrotik username. Forgotten Mikrotik username and password is indeed common and often happens especially if we do not save the Mikrotik login data. But you don’t need to worry because if you forget the Mikrotik login username and password, both of them can be recovered by utilizing Mikrotik backup files and Mikrotik Backup Password Recovery services from the mikrotikpasswordrecovery.com site.

Okay, here’s how to recover Mikrotik username and password with Mikrotik Password Recovery Tool:

  • Make sure you still save the backup file from the Microtic Router that you forgot the password.
  • Enter the site www.mikrotikwiki.com
  • Click Choose File and select your Mikrotik backup file -> Click Submit.
  • Then your Mikrotik Username and Password will appear as shown above.

If this method cannot be used maybe because there are no backup files from your proxy, another way is to reset your Microtic Router

What is NTP? Client NTP settings on Mikrotik

What is NTP? Client NTP Settings on Microtik – Anyone know what is NTP (Network Time Protocol)? Surely many people don’t know what Network Time Protocol is. NTP does sound strange to people who are not very familiar with computer networks. Okay, to learn more about What is NTP (Network Time Protocol) and its application in Microtics, please refer to the following NTP:

Definition of NTP
Network Time Protocol, or more commonly referred to as NTP, is a mechanism or protocol used to synchronize timers in a computer system and network. This synchronization process is carried out in data communication lines that typically use the TCP / IP communication protocol. So that this process itself can be seen as an ordinary data communication process that only exchanges data packets.

NTP uses UDP number 123 communication port. This protocol is designed to work well even though the communication media varies, ranging from those with high to low latency, ranging from cable media to air media. This protocol allows computer devices to still be able to synchronize time very precisely in various media. Usually in a network, several nodes are equipped with NTP facilities in order to form a synchronization subnet. The nodes will then communicate with each other and synchronize their time recorded. Even though there are several nodes that will become master (primary server), the NTP protocol does not require the selection mechanism.

Network Time Protocol Client settings in Mikrotik
Under certain conditions Microtic Routers must work based on time, both date, day and hour. For example, if you want to block internet access outside working hours or block some sites at certain hours. If you use a PC as a Microtic Router this is certainly not a problem, because the computer motherboard has a battery installed that can maintain time configuration. But on the Microtic RouterBoard that does not have internal storage, the configuration time will be messed up every time the router restarts.

Well, to avoid inaccurate configuration of this time, then the Microtic Router needs to be configured Network Time Protocol (NTP). Microtic routers need to know the NTP server that is on the Internet and will try to adjust the configuration of the time on the NTP Server. To synchronize the time configuration on the Mikrotik Router, you can use an NTP Server for Indonesia with IP Address 203.160.128.3.

For more convenience, you can use Winbox to setup the NTP Client. Open Winbox, go to the System menu -> NTP Client, as shown below:

Check the Enabled -> Mode: unicast -> Primary NTP Server: 203.160.128.3

Or you can also use the command line:
([admin @ MikroTik])> client set primary ntp system – ntp = 203.160.128.3 enabled = yes mode = unicast

Next set the time on the proxy by going to the System menu -> Clock, as shown below:

Or you can also use the command line:
([admin @ MikroTik])> set time-zone-name = Asia / Jakarta clock system

Now configure the time your Microtic Router is appropriate.

Tutorial How to RB750 Microtic Settings via Winbox

Tutorial How to RB750 Microtic Settings via Winbox – Mikrotik RB750 is one of the most widely used Microtic RouterBoard because of its cheap price. Mikrotik RB 750 has 5 10/100 ethernet ports, with a new Atheros 400MHz processor and is included with a level 4 license. Unfortunately the RB750 does not have a Wireless interface, so it cannot be directly used to create a wireless Hotspot. In order to make a wireless Hotspot an additional device needs to be added as an Access Point.

Okay, this time the Indonesian Mikrotik Tutorial will discuss the Tutorial on How to RB750 Microtic Settings via Winbox from the beginning. This tutorial is specifically for those of you who are just using this Mikrotik RB750 (newbie). Okay, let’s learn Mikrotik RB750 together.

How to access the Mikrotik RB750
Please turn on the Mikrotik RB750, connect the ether 1 port to the PC using a straight UTP cable. If the first switch is turned on, the default configuration of the ether 1 IP address is 192.168.88.1. Please change your Ethernet ethernet IP address to 192.168.88.2. If you have, you can access proxy with Winbox, putty, telnet, or webfig. How do you read this article 4 ways to access Mikrotik. But I suggest you use Winbox to access the Mikrotik RB750 to make it easier

RB750 Microtic Settings for Speedy Internet

The following is how the RB750 Microtic Settings with a Speedy Internet connection. Here dial into Speedy directly from Mikrotik, not using an ADSL modem.

  • Please set your ADSL Modem to ‘BRIDGE’ mode, so if still in ‘PPPoE’ mode, please go to the ‘RESET’ modem & reset it.
  • Reset the Mikrotik RB750 if it’s new or use the default settings Mikrotik default. How:

In Winbox Select Menu System -> Reset Configuration -> Reset Configuration

Reboot Mikrotik

  • Next, we start with Log In Winbox and choose Mac Address (not IP Address) to connect to Mikrotik.
  • Change the name of the interface

In Winbox Select Menu Interface

Click [+] click 2x ether1 Name = Speedy

Click [+] click 2x ether2 Name = Local

  • Change the Mikrotik IP Address

In Winbox Select the New Terminal Menu, type:

add address=192.168.0.1/24 network=192.168.0.0 broadcast=192.168.0.255 interface=Lokal
add address=192.168.1.2/24 network=192.168.1.0 broadcast=192.168.1.255 interface=Speedy

  • Adding PPP – PPPoE Client
    In Winbox Select PPP Menu – click [+] – PPPoE Client
    Tab General Name = pppoe-speedy1 Interfaces = Speedy
    Dial Out Service Tab = internet User = 012*@telkom.net (Your Speedy Username) Password = (Your Speedy Password) Profile = Default Checklist in Select Menuan ‘Add Default Route & User Peer DNS ‘, Select Request Allow all Checklist, OK.
  • Add DNS
    In Winbox Select Menu IP -> DNS -> Settings
    If the DNS server has appeared, just give a checklist to Select Request ‘Allow Remote Requests’, OK
    Also use the DNS Server for your PC Billing & PC Client
  • Replacing TCP / IP PC-BILLING / PC CLIENT
    First set PC / Computer used for your proxy installation process. How:
    Open Control Panel – Network Connection – Local Area Connection – Right-click & Select Menu Properties – Internet Protocol (TCP / IP) – Properties.
    Use the Following IP Address: IP Address = 192.168.0.2 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 Gateway = 192.168.0.1
    Use the Following DNS Server Addresses: Use DNS Servers & Alternative DNS Servers in the DNS settings.
    Mangle Settings for TCP / UDP Port
  • Change Time Zone on NTP
    Because some RouterBoard / Mikrotik do not use Battery CMOS, so that the RouterBoard / Mikrotik time zone runs normally, we have to set it.
    In Winbox Select Menu System -> NTP Client
  • Adding Firewall configuration NAT (Network Address Translation)
    In Winbox Select Menu IP -> Firewall -> NAT Tab or open New Terminal and type:

/ip firewall nat
add chain=srcnat src-address=192.168.0.0/24 out-interface=pppoe-speedy1 action=masquerade comment=”NAT from 192.168.0.0/24 output to Speedy”
add chain=srcnat src-address=192.168.0.2 out-interface=Lokal action=masquerade comment=” NAT from 192.168.0.2 output to Lokal”

Until here, Mikrotik RB750 you should be able to connect to the Internet, please try doing the Mikrotik and try browsing from the Client PC. If successful, the settings are correct.

How to Configure a Mikrotik DNS Server

How to Configure a Mikrotik DNS Server – Maybe you have often heard the term DNS Server. DNS (Domain Name System) The server functions to map the web hostname or domain on the Internet to its IP address (to be an IP address). For the record, computer networks (including the internet) communicate using IP addresses not with domain names such as .com, .net, .org, etc. That is why to configure a user computer or router that will access the internet DNS server, it must be configured first. If not, then the site to be addressed cannot be accessed because the IP address cannot be identified.

To configure the DNS Server on Microtik you can setup it via the command line or via Winbox. The following is an example of giving DNS Server 8.8.8.8 (Google’s DNS) command:

([[email protected]]) > ip dns set servers=8.8.8.8 allow-remote-requests=yes

Check whether the DNS settings are entered.
([admin @ MikroTik])> ip dns print
servers: 8.8.8.8
dynamic-servers:
allow-remote-requests: yes
max-udp-packet-size: 4096
cache-size: 2048KiB
cache-max-ttl: 1w
cache-used: 9KiB

In the command above, mean allow-remote-requests = yes is going to make your Mikrotik Router as a DNS Server too. So that later the DNS configuration on the user’s computer is simply directed to the Mikrotik Router, and is no longer directed to Google’s DNS Server or ISP, or other. This can save Bandwidth usage because DNS questions will only be given to your Microtic Router.

For simplicity you can use Winbox to configure the DNS Server on Mikrotik via the IP menu -> DNS -> Settings button, the display will appear like this:

You should configure more than one DNS server, so that when the first server is down we can still use the second server. You can enter the DNS server as shown above or through the command line with the following command:

([admin @ MikroTik])> ip dns set servers = 8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4 allow-remote-requests = yes

After the DNS Server on Mikrotik has been configured, the Mikrotik Router should be able to connect to the internet. Check the connection to the internet by pinging websites like google.com.

Use Ctrl + C to stop the ping process.

How To Setup User Manager Settings with Mikrotik Hotspots

This article will discuss how to build integrated user management into one in the user manager by using 2 different Routerboard devices where each of these Routers has a hotspot service system, for the topology as shown in the picture below

From the topology above, Router B is connected to Router A where each one uses ether 3, then for Router A and Router B each has a hotspot system installed, for Router A using HotSpot Interface ether 2 and Router B uses wlan 1, like the one It has been explained previously that we will integrate the two hotspot systems using a user manager, where the user manager has been installed on Router A, before proceeding further, the User manager and Hotspot system installation will be explained.

We can access the user manager from the web browser with the address http: // ip-router / userman

Installing Radius on Hot Router A and Router B
After the User Manager package has been installed and the Hotspot System is running, the next step is to do the integration using Radius Server
Configuring the Hotspot
 
Enter the IP Hotspot Sever Profiles menu, select hsprof1, check the Use Radius parameter, then click the Apply button

The next step select the Radius menu, then click Add (red (+) button) because we use the Hotspot check parameter “Hotspot”, then specify an address and screet

  • If the hotspot and Radius Server are still in one router, we fill in the Address with “127.0.0.1”
  • Fill the screet with a unique key combination for example: 123456

To integrate the hotspot on Router B with the User manager on Router A, the method is as follows:

  • For Router B because it functions as a Radius Client, fill in the Address with ip parameters that are one segement with Router A (IP Gateway Router A), if it matches the topology then the Address that is filled in is “192.168.5.215”
  • Fill in the secret with the Key combination, it can be different from Router A or it can be the same

Install the Radius on the Router A User manager

The way to configure it is to enter the User manager page using a web browser application with the address http: // 192.168.5.215/userman

The next step is to log in to the username page, by default for username “admin” and blank password

Add in the “Routers” menu to connect the Radius to Router A with the user manager, click Add select New then fill in the following parameters

  • Fill in the Name parameter with the name routerA
  • because the Radius on Router A and User manager is contained in one router (Router A) then fill in the IP Address with “127.0.0.1”
  • Our shared secret matches the secret parameters in the Radius menu
  • If you have pressed the Add button

Also add in the “Routers” menu to connect the Radius to Router B with the user manager installed on Router A, click the Add New option then fill in the following parameters

  • Fill in the Name parameter with the name of the routerB
  • because the Radius on router B is not directly connected to the User manager who is in Rouer A then fill in the IP Address of one segment (direct connect) with Router A, according to the topology described earlier for our IP Address set “192.168.5.223”
  • then for Shared secret we adjust the secret parameter in the Router B Radius menu
  • If you have pressed the Add button

The next step then select the Profiles menu Profiles tab to determine the limitation that will be given to each user

determine the limitation that will be given to the user, select the Profiles Menu tab Limitations then specify the value of Uptime, Download, Upload and so on

The last step is to give internet access rights to the client that is under Router A and Router B, we can add it to the Users menu in the Add tab, for example

  • For Router A client Username: User2, Password: User2, Assign profile: 1 hour
  • As for the client that is under Router B we create Username = User3, Password = User 3 then for Assign profile = 1 hour

How to Make Microtic Hotspots: Basic Mikrotik Hotspot Settings



How to Make a Hotspot on Mikrotik: Mikrotik Hotspot Basic Settings – Microtic Router is a router that has full features. One feature that is quite popular and widely used from the Microtic Router itself is Hotspot. Do you know the difference between ordinary internet sharing and Hotspots? Maybe you often find wifi internet signals that are passworded using WPA or WEP. You will be able to surf if you enter the password correctly. So anyone can access the wifi if they know the password because there is only one password. Unlike the Hotspot method, where most WiFi hotspots are not in the password and all users can connect then they will be directed to the login page in the Web Browser. Each user can log in with a different username and password. This method is what we often find in wifi cafes, schools, campuses, and other public areas.

Now, we will discuss the Indonesian Mikrotik Tutorial by trying to make and set the proxy as a Hotspot. But before you need to know what are the advantages of Hotspot by using Mikrotik. By using Mikrotik as a Hotspot, you can configure a wireless network that can only be used with a specific username and password. You can also manage these users. For example, set the duration of the total use of hotspots per user, limit how much data can be downloaded per user, set what content users can access, etc.

Okay, I already know what the advantages and features of the proxy hotspot are. Now, go to Balajar Mikrotik directly to the practice. We start with the basic hotspot configuration first.

  • Determine the interface that the hotspot will create. Because we will make a hotspot via wifi then select interface wlan. Here I assume using wlan1. Activate wlan1 and use AP Bridge mode, fill in the SSID with the name of your hotspot.

Give the IP address interface wlan1, for example 192.168.100.1/24

([[email protected]])> ip address add address = 192.168.100.1/24 interface = wlan1

Or it can be through Winbox, enter the IP menu -> Address

  • Now we start creating a Hotspot for WLAN1. For simplicity, we use the Hotspot Setup wizard. Enter the IP menu -> Hotspot -> Hotspot Setup
  • Select Hotspot Interface: wlan1 -> click Next
  • Next fill in the IP address of wlan1 and check Masquerade Network. click Next
  • Determine the IP address range that will be given to the user (DHCP Server), for example: 192.168.100.10-192.168.100.254. So the user will be given an IP automatically by the DHCP Server between the IP range.
  • Select SSL certificate. Select none, click Next.
  • The IP Address for the SMTP Server is blank. Click Next.
  • Enter the DNS Server address. Just fill in with Google’s DNS Server: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Click Next.
  • Enter the DNS name for the local hotspot server. If filled, it will replace the IP address of wlan1 as the login page url. If it is not filled then the login page url will use the IP address of wlan1. Just clear it, click next.
  • The hotspot has been successfully created. Please try to connect your laptop to your wifi hotspot.
  • Open a browser and access any web, for example mikrotikindo.blogspot.com then you will be redirected to the proxy hotspot login page.
  • Please try logging in with username: admin and password: blank.
  • If successful login means that the Hotspot is correct.
  • To edit and add users, please enter the IP menu -> Hotspot -> click the Users tab
