We have someone who wants to extend their network into another building but it is inconvenient to lay cable between.
I am attempting to set up the "Virtual Clients" option described by https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:I ... al_Clients
and it looks like the simplest and doesn't seem to require special settings on the main AP.
It says this is supported from 6.35 only in wireless-rep or wireless-cm2 package, but the changelog said one of these is obsolete
and the other renamed to "wireless" which is included in bundle "routeros" package. Fortunately, this is listed in my router's System->Packages screen (both routers are new).
On the main (connected to internet) mikrotik has ssid "Test" and in both Wireless->Interfaces->wlan1->Wireless security profile is shown as "default" so I am using the command on the second/repeater router: /interface> wireless add mode=station master-interface=wlan1 ssid=Test security-profile=default. This makes a virtual lan "wlan2" appear in the list but still no internet connection.
The ssid of the second router is Test2 and I have the same wireless password on both.
I'm guessing there is something wrong with the bridge (or other) settings but I am not enough of an expert to be able to locate the problem(s).
