MikroTik: MikroTik Hotspot with User Manager

BNT-ONL-MT-036 by Baltic Networks

Build a wireless hotspot with MikroTik and efficiently manage it using MikroTik User Manager.


Have you ever found yourself in a cafe, restaurant, or park offering wireless internet access? Typically, you connect to their Wi-Fi, and it prompts you to enter a username and password for internet access – this is what we refer to as a Hotspot.

As a MikroTik network engineer, you may encounter scenarios where you are tasked with installing and configuring a wireless hotspot for your company or client, and the process might seem daunting. This course is designed to guide you step by step, using practical labs, to help you grasp the intricacies of installing a wireless hotspot and implementing effective tips for optimal performance.

Starting from the ground up, I will walk you through the entire hotspot installation process, covering all available options. This includes user management, profiles, bandwidth limitation, Walled garden, hotspot advertisement, IP binding, connecting the hotspot to the User Manager, generating vouchers for users, and various other essential topics. By the end of this course, you'll possess comprehensive knowledge on configuring a wireless hotspot whenever the need arises.

The course is structured around hands-on LABS, ensuring a straightforward approach for real-world implementation. These LABS follow a step-by-step methodology, consistent with my teaching style across all courses.
