MIKROTIK ROUTER basic configuration includes assigning Ip addresses and enabling NAT for accessing the internet. microtik router basic configuration can be divided into 4 steps.

step 1 ASSIGNING WAN AND LAN IP ADDRESS

  • Download the winbox first, connect your pc with the microtik router by cable rj45.
  • open winbox click on search. connected ethernet's cable will appear now click the mac address. username is admin and password is blank then click connect.
  • now go to IP address menu click on plus sign type the IP address provided by your ISP hit APPLY and then ok.

step 2 GATEWAY CONFIGURATION

After completing the wan setup, you should now configure the gateway.

  • if you turn your Mikrotik router into a DNS server, all Mikrotik IP address can be used as a DNS server IP including wan IP which is public IP and problem will arise here.
  • for this go to Ip > firewall menu and click on add new button . under the general tab choose chain: input, protocol: udp, dst, port :53 and in. Interface: either1. now choose the action: drop from under action tab and click apply and ok button.
