This is one of the most common setups for a couple of reasons. First of all, it is very easy to set up and configure. Secondly, this configuration can be performed with any Router Board/ Router OS product regardless of the license level. A level 3 license is all that is required and all products have a level 3 license or higher. In this example we are going to bridge both Router Boards, but keep in mind that this configuration could be routed very easily.

AP Bridge & Station WDS

This article will show a very quick overview for beginners on setting up a Point to Point link in Router OS Winbox graphical configuration tool.

Requirements :-

1. 2 Nos of Mikrotik Metal 5SHPN. 2. 30 dbi Grid antenna make KBT.

Instructions


Start by opening the Mikroitk Metal 5SHPN through Winbox. then You will see WLAN listed here, they might be disabled - to turn them on, click on the blue Enable button. Make sure that the interface is configured and the antennas are connected before you enable an interface. this configure for only AP device. 1.JPG


To configure an interface, double-click on WLAN, and the config window will appear. To set the device as an AP Bridge mode, choose "AP bridge" mode. You can also set other things, like the desired band, frequency, SSID and the security profile. also chose nv2 protocol for both end for better throughput. 13.JPG


Then add a bridge and add ether1 & wlan1 in bridge port. also add both end device. 15.JPG 16.JPG


Then create WDS in AP end device. 18.JPG


You probably want your AP to be secure, so you need to configure WPA2 security. Close the wireless setting window with OK if you are done, and move to the Security Profiles tab of the Wireless interface window. There, make a new profile with the Add button and set desired WPA2 settings. You can choose this new security profile back in the Interface configuration. also configure both end ( AP Bridge & Stations) 14.JPG


Then open station end device through winbox and set mode , frequency ,SSID and security profile.. 19.JPG


Then see Registration Table for signal check.. 20.JPG
