Winbox connection

Tue Oct 30, 2018 3:26 am

Sorry for the very basic question

I logged-in to a new Mikrotik router using winbox through the default IP: through ether2 interface

I create a new bridge (called bridge2), assign the wlan1 port to bridge2, then assigned IP: to bridge2
and create a DHCP server for the birdge2 ( Know I can connect to wlan1, get dynamic IP
But, with the wlan1 connection (after unplugging ether2 cable), I cannot log-in to the router using winbox, however, the winbox detects the MAC and IP of the router but when I press connect, I got the message (Error: could not connect to .... MAC ... )

When I replug the ether2 cable, I can access the router using winbox

So, what should I do to access the router from bridge2 (not the default bridge) ?

The default firewall is configured to allow access from interfaces in a default interface-list "LAN", so just add your new bridge as a member of this list.
