RBwAPG-60ad IP Settings

Fri Jul 19, 2019 5:52 pm


i just received my RBwAPG-60ad Kit. I'm a beginner with RouterOS.
I connected the two devices to my Network. Now I want them to get IP-Adresses from a DHCP-Server (OpenWRT).
When I open any of the devices with winbox (Quick Set) the IP is shown as Static (
I would like to get the address via DHCP, but when I select Automatic I can't get an address from DHCP.

I tried to add a DHCP-Client to interface ether1, but I get the error "Couldn't add New DHCP Client - can not run on slave interface (6)"
I only can add a DHCP Client to interface "bridge".

Is there any way to configure the "main" IP address via DHCP?

The bridge is the correct place for the dhcp-client as it is the master interface. It looks like the quick-set is broken, but since it is based off of simple scripts it is limited in functionality and should not be used passed initial setup anyway.
