A Local Network for internet access through Ethernet ports and Wireless LAN can be set up in the following steps:
The purpose of setting up a WPA2 security profile, or in simple terms a WiFi password is to prevent unauthorized access to your network resources. Only those with the passphrase will be able to connect to the WiFi. The profile that will be created can be applied to the WiFi interface that you enable on the MikroTik Routerboard.
A WLAN (Wireless LAN) interface is used to connect one or more devices to a network wirelessly. Devices such a laptops, mobile phones, tablets etc can be wirelessly connected to internet via WiFi.
Set the following:
Mode: ap bridge
Channel Width: 20MHz
SSID: (Your desired SSID / WiFi identifier)
Wireless Protocol: 802.11
Security profile: The security profile created in step
Click on ‘Enable’, then ‘Apply’ and OK.
In telecommunication networks, a bridge is an entity that logically connects all the Ethernet interfaces belonging to a single LAN network together. The Ethernet ports on a MikroTik Routerboard can be bridged together in the following manner:
Modify the start of pool from 172.16.0.2 to 172.16.0.100 as some IP addresses can be reserved for manual IP assignment for internal devices such as a DVR or Biometric device.
NAT is short for Network Address Translation. NAT is an Internet standard that enables a local-area network (LAN) to use one set of IP addresses for internal traffic and a second set of addresses for external traffic, so all outgoing traffic from the MikroTik Routerboard with a LAN IP will be stamped with a public IP.
