Applies to RouterOS: v5, v6+


All RouterBOARDs from factory come with default configuration. There are several different configurations depending on board type:

  • CPE Router;
  • LTE CPE AP router;
  • AP Router (single or dual band);
  • PTP Bridge (AP or CPE);
  • WISP Bridge (AP in ap_bridge mode);
  • Switch;
  • CAP;
  • IP Only.

You can run command /system default-configuration print to see exact applied default configuration commands.

CPE Router

In this type of configurations router is configured as wireless client device. Depending on type of the board WAN interface can be Wireless or LTE interfaces. WAN port has configured DHCP client (except for LTE), is protected by ip firewall and MAC discovery/connection is disabled.

List of routers using this type of config:

  • SXT
  • QRT
  • LHG
  • RB 911,912 - with level3 license
  • RB 711
  • Groove
  • Metal
  • NetMetal
  • RB 921,922,A21 - with level3 license

LTE CPE AP router

This configuration type is applied to routers that has both LTE and wireless interfaces. LTE interface is considered a WAN port protected by firewall and MAC discovery/connection disabled. Wireless is configured as access point and bridged with all Ethernets.

AP Router

This type of configuration is applied to home access point routers to be used straight out of the box without additional configuration (except router passwords and wireless keys)

First Ethernet is always configured as WAN port (protected by firewall, enabled DHCP client and disabled MAC connection/discovery). Other Ethernet and wireless interfaces are added to local LAN bridge with address set and configured DHCP server.

In case of dual band routers, one wireless is configured as 5Ghz access point and other as 2.4Ghz access point.

List of routers using this type of config:

  • 450,750,850
  • mAP
  • wAP
  • RB 931
  • hAP, RB 952,962
  • RB 941
  • RB 751,951
  • RB 953
  • OmniTIK
  • RB 960
  • RB 2011,3011
  • CRS with wireless interface

PTP Bridge

Bridged ethernet with wireless interface. Default IP address is set on the bridge interface. There are two possible options - as CPE and as AP. For CPE wireless interface is set in "station-bridge" mode, for AP "bridge" mode is used.

List of routers using this type of config:

  • DynaDish - as CPE

WISP Bridge

Configuration is the same as PTP Bridge in AP mode, except that wireless mode is set to ap_bridge for PTMP setups.

List of routers using this type of config:

  • cAP
  • Groove A, Metal A, RB 711 A
  • OmniGroove
  • RB 911,912 - with Level4 license.
  • RB 921,922,A21 - with Level4 license.


This configuration utilizes switch chip features to configure dumb switch. All ethernet ports are added to switch group and default IP address is set on master port.

List of routers using this type of config:

  • CRS without wireless interface

IP Only

When no specific configuration is found, IP address is set on ether1, or combo1, or sfp1. Typically such configuration is applied to all CCR series and other rackmount routers.


This type of configuration is used when device need to be used as wireless client device controlled by CAPsMAN.

When CAP default configuration is loaded, ether1 is considered a management port with DHCP client configured. All other Ethernet interfaces are bridged and wlan1 is set to be managed by CAPsMAN.
