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
isolate-slaves (yes | no; Default: yes) Don't allow communication between clients (from RouterOS 6.41rc4)
put-slaves-in-bridge (; Default: ) Put newly created slave interfaces in this bridge (from RouterOS 6.41rc4)
ssid (string (0..32 chars); Default: value of System Identity) SSID (service set identifier) is a name that identifies wireless network

Slave interface properties

From RouterOS 6.41rc4 Point To Multi Point experimental support is added. There are several important changes and improvements in later versions.

Connected clients are treated as slave interfaces, after successful connection new interface is created.

It is possible to apply different settings for each individual client: add them in different bridges, provide IP addresses from different subnets.


Warning: Master device requires License level4 for more than one connected client support

Property Description
parent (string; Default: wlan60-*) Parent interface name
put-in-bridge (none | parent | bridge-name; Default: parent) Add slave interface to specific bridge
remote-address (MAC; Default: matches master interface MAC) MAC address of master interface, slave is connecting to


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.
