This website allows you to fill out a form to create a customized script that you can download to your device to configure it as a Node or (in the future) as a Sector.


Configuration requires the following steps:
  • Setup a temporary configuration in which the Mikrotik Node or Sector has Internet access through the Ethernet port and is on the same subnet as the device (desktop or laptop computer or tablet) being used to configure it. Internet access is required to download firmware updates, scripts, and SSH keys. The recommended temporary configuration is the Home / Office / Lab / Workshop Configuration described on the WiFi Routers page. Refer to this Configuration Diagram.
  • Configure a default route and DNS server as described in Connecting using Ethernet.
  • Download the default-ip.rsc script as described on the same page. This will simplify the process should you ever need to reset the Node or Sector to factory defaults.
  • Update the Firmware as described on Firmware Updates.
  • Configure the Node as described on Configure Node Script. Note that after running this script, you should change the default login and password, as noted in the Important Next Steps.


  • Prolonged exposure to microwave radiation can be harmful. During the configuration process, please ensure that the antennas are not pointed at people or animals. Please refer to RF Field Strength & Safety for more information on maximum permissible exposure and RF field strength meters.
  • Unless your device has been reset to factory defaults (without using the default-ip.rsc script), the procedure described here does not require the use of Winbox (a Windows executable), and can be performed using Windows, Mac, or Linux. (Resetting the device to factory defaults without using the default-ip.rsc script removes the default IP address.) If the default IP address ( of the device has been removed, you must use Winbox to connect to the device using its MAC address in order to configure the IP address. For further details, refer to Connecting.


Note that the following documents are for reference only. The best and simplest way to configure a Node is to use the Configure Node Script.
