Lora8 kit: manage via lan?

Fri Jun 26, 2020 10:07 am

Hi,

I'm new to Mikrotik and can't seem to figure out how to change my lora8 kit so that I can access it's configuration from the lan (it's rj45 port) instead of having to connect to it's wifi network.
It's connected via a poe injector to my unifi switch, so it has network.
I see that it gets the 192.168.1.16 ip from my network.
But going there never does anything.

When I connect to it via the wifi, 192.168.88.1 works.
(set ipv4 manual ip to 192.168.88.6 btw)

I figured changing it to bridge mode instead of router mode would fix it. But then I can't access it anywhere. neither on 1.16 or 88.1.
(I use winbox as well, and it can see it, just not connect to it.)

Hello,

This device by default comes configuration, which is made considering ether1 as WAN port, not LAN, which is why there is firewall rule dropping packets, which comes from ether1 towards the device. If you want to access your wAP through ether1 by using IP address, the only thing you should do is to disable this one particular rule. Go to IP > Firewall > Filter and find rule with comment ";;; defconf: drop all not coming from LAN" - disable this rule and you will be able to connect to wAP using the IP address your DHCP has assigned to it.

Thx for the reply!
I actually called a friend who I thought had experience with Mikrotik products. and he helped me trough it. Seeing as I already have a firewall on my network.
All we did was reset the device without the default config.
Set the dhcp for the network interface
enable the lora as usual.
And it works now
