Description

If you have a MikroTik router at home or at work which you don't know how to configure it to become a Wireless Access Point Router, this course can help you to achieve this.

During this course, I am going to show you step-by-step how to configure your MikroTik router to become a wireless Access Point. We will pass through many different topics such as: DHCP client configuration, DHCP server configuration, IP address assignment on interfaces, NAT configuration and much more.

This course will help you to feel more familiar with the MikroTik router by using the Winbox tool that I am going to use it during this course.

If you have any question during the course, you can always write me and I will answer your question ASAP.

Steps needed to configure the MikroTik Router as a Wireless Access Point
7 Lectures 44:11

In this lecture, the Eth1 interface on the MikroTik router will be connected to the cable provided from the ISP, and we will configure DHCP client on Eth1 interface to receive an IP address, subnet mask, DNS addresses and Defalut gateway from the ISP. 

We will do a test to check if the configuration of the DHCP is done correctly.

In this lecture, we are going to configure the wireless part on the MikroTik router. This will include:

  • Enable the wireless interface on the router
  • Setting up a password on the wireless
  • Choosing 802.11 b/g/n band
  • Setting a name on the SSID
Configure the Wireless on the MikroTik Router
08:40

In this lecture and after the wireless has been enabled in the previous lecture, we are going to configure the MikroTik router to become a DHCP server in order to be able to provide private IP addresses to network devices that are connected to the wireless that we have just configure it.

Preview 10:56

After configuring the DHCP server, the devices that are connected wirelessly to the router are now getting a private IP address. For this reason, it is needed to have a NAT process on the router enabled to allow the private IP address to be translated to public IP addresses in order to go to the internet.

In this lecture, I will show you the steps needed to configure NAT on the MikroTik router.

04:59

In the previous lecture, we have finished the whole configuration on the MikroTik router to become a Wireless Access Point router and share the internet service wirelessly to other devices.

In this lecture, we are going to check if we can be connected to the internet in case my computer is connected to the wireless on the MikroTik router that we have created. This will justify also whether our whole configuration was done correctly.
