Package: system

802.11ad implementation capable of providing Gigabit Ethernet speeds over wireless network.

Extend your Gigabit network over a transparent AES encrypted wireless 60GHz link without usual wired or wireless network problems.

General interface properties

Sub-menu: /interface w60g

Devices comes in pre-configured, connected pairs. Manual configuration is optional.

Property Description
arp (disabled | enabled | proxy-arp | reply-only; Default: enabled) Read more >>
arp-timeout (auto | integer; Default: auto) ARP timeout is time how long ARP record is kept in ARP table after no packets are received from IP. Value auto equals to the value of arp-timeout in /ip settings, default is 30s
comment (string; Default: ) Short description of the interface
disabled (yes | no; Default: yes) Whether interface is disabled
frequency (58320 | 60480 | 62640 | auto; Default: auto) Frequency used in communication (Only active on master device)
l2mtu (integer [0..65536]; Default: 1600) Layer2 Maximum transmission unit
mac-address (MAC; Default: ) MAC address of the radio interface
mode (master | slave | sniff; Default: master) Operation mode
mtu (integer [0..65536]; Default: 1500) Layer3 Maximum transmission unit
name (string; Default: wlan60-1) Name of the interface
password (; Default: randomly generated) Password used for AES encryption
ssid (string (0..32 chars); Default: value of System Identity) SSID (service set identifier) is a name that identifies wireless network


Scan command searches for and displays available AP(s) in the frequency range supported by the W60G interface. Using scan command the interface operation is disabled (wireless link is disconnected during the scan operation)


/interface w60g monitor wlan60-1

Monitor provides connection status, currently used frequency, remote device MAC address, mcs and signal quality percentage. It's preferable to run monitor for easy device set up and alignment.
