WISP AP DHCP server does not work

Wed Jan 09, 2019 11:34 pm


A newbie question. I am trying to make a WISP AP with a DHCP server. I need to bridge lan port with wlan. I did a DHCP server on a bridge however it does not give an IP address to any wireless device trying to connect to AP. Could you help me out?

Your config is incomplete if this is your full configuration.

Please use the DHCP Server setup option in Winbox or follow the guide found in the Wiki:

You're now just running a DHCP server, without any Pool (addresses to hand out) or any other options.
