Mikrotik Wireless Bridge Settings - Full Tutorial

Mikrotik Wireless Bridge Settings - Most of the time, we want to use Mikrotik Wireless for point to point solutions in bridged network mode (not routing). However, Mikrotik RouterOS itself is designed to work very well in routing mode. We need to do a few things so that our wireless link can work for bridge mode.

Bridge mode allows one network to join the network on the other side transparently, without the need to go through routing, so that machines on one network can have an IP address that is in the same subnet as the other side.

However, if our wireless network is large enough, this bridge mode will increase the wireless traffic, considering that there will be a lot of broadcast traffic from one network to another. For networks that are large enough, I recommend using the routing mode.

Here is a diagram of the network that we set.

Configuring the Access Point

1. Create a new bridge interface, name it bridge1

2. Insert ethernet into the bridge interface

3. Enter the IP address on interface bridge1

4. Next is the wireless interface setting. Click on the Wireless menu (1), select the interface tab (2) then double click on the name of the wireless interface that will be used (3). Select AP-bridge mode (4), determine the ssid (5), 2.4GHz-B / G band (6), and the frequency to be used (7). Don't forget to activate the default authenticated (8) and default forward (9). Then activate the wireless interface (10) and click OK (11).

5. Next is the WDS configuration on the wireless interface used. Reopen the wireless configuration as the steps above, select the WDS tab (1). Determine dynamic WDS Mode (2) and choose the bridge interface for this WDS (3). Then press the OK button.

6. The next step is to add a WDS virtual interface. Add a new WDS interface as shown, then choose the wireless interface that we use for this WDS. Then press OK.

7. If WDS has been added, a new WDS interface will appear as shown below.

Configure the Wireless Station

Configuration on the wireless station is almost the same as the steps above, except in the steps to enter the IP address and wireless configuration. In the station configuration, the mode used is station-wds, the frequency does not need to be determined, but it must determine the scan-list where the frequency on the access point is included in this scan list. For example, on the access point we specify a frequency of 2412, then write a scan-list 2400-2500.

Link checking

If the wireless link that we created is working properly, then on the wireless menu, the R status will appear (see image below).

In addition, the mac-address of a connected wireless can also be seen in the registration window (see image below).

Wireless network security configuration

In Mikrotik, the easiest way to maintain network security is to register a paired wireless mac-address on the access list. This must be done both on the access point and on the client side. If the access-list input has been done, then turn off the default authenticated feature on wireless, then other wireless whose mac addresses are not listed will not be able to connect to our network.

If we want better security features, we can also use both WEP and WPA encryption.
