Re: User only for changing WiFi password.

Is this AP in a private network just for that customer or is it for many people to access?

If just for that one customer then he should be able to log into it and change the password, if the AP is for many customers, then only the owner or admin should be able to change the password.

Winbox>new terminal>log print

I connect to my router with Winbox, select new terminal then type log then print and I can see the log file. What do I need to do to be able to save this log to a file on my computer and or send it to my printer? I have tried every thing I can think of and have even did a Mikrotik search with no luck.

I have found the answer to my problem in other places. It was two very simple settings that a NON Mikrotik cert. person found just using the same description of the problem that I posted here.
