Summary

Configuration example shows how to establish simple wireless network by using MikroTik RouterOS. MikroTik RouterOS is fully compliant with IEEE802.11a/b/g/n standards, MikroTik RouterOS device can be used as wireless access-point and wireless station (other modes are supported too).

Configuration setup

Our basic configuration setup is

AP CLIENT.png

Access Point Configuration

  • Connect to the router via Winbox
  • Setup Wireless interface, necessary configuration options are mode=ap-bridge band=ap_operated_band frequency=ap_operated_frequency ssid=network_identification

  • These settings are enough to establish wireless connection, additionally you need to add IP address for the wireless interface for IP routing, optionally add security and other settings.

Station Configuration

  • Wireless client configuration example is for MikroTik RouterOS, other vendor OS configuration should be looked in the appropriate documentation/forum/mailing list etc.
  • Connect to the client router via the same way and proceed to the Wireless interface configuration.
  • Necessary configuration options are mode=station band=band_ap_operates_on ssid=ap_network_ssid

  • These settings are enough to establish wireless connection, additionally you need to set IP address for the wireless interface to establish IP routing communication with access point, optionally use security and other settings.
