Looking for guides to mikrotik router gui

Fri Nov 13, 2020 10:32 am

Hello I just started working for a company that is using mostly mikrotik for WiFi connections and stuff.. I have no real experience with mikrotik. I just got ccna certificate and guides that mikrotik official site provides are not really that useful...

Thanks in advance

You just got your CCNA. Congrats. I'm guessing you have very little real-word experience. The CCNA is a great course that covers a lot of the basics of networking. While it focuses on building familiarity with Cisco products, the concepts translate to all vendors. If you learned to "think like a packet", then any manufacturer's products will make sense once you allow yourself some time to experiment.

I recommend you get a few Mikrotik routers and build a lab. Get some Ciscos too. Gaining experience is vital.

Hi,

I think you should go through mikrotik guide and use the mikrotik router.
You also learn the CCNA which will be helpful for you.

hahaha thanks for the morning laugh!

Here is what I recommend as reference materials
https://www.amazon.ca/Routeros-Example- ... 532&sr=8-3
https://www.amazon.ca/Theory-laboratori ... 633&sr=8-2

Finally, this is what you should do.
Once done, then come back and ask questions.
Work = results!

CCNA is not very useful for MikroTik, because Cisco is different. Get https://mikrotik.com/training/ full-time training and finally get at least MTCNA (https://mikrotik.com/training/about). Few months with practice of MikroTik networking and you'll be fluent enough even without trainings and certificates, but training will be definitely faster and hassle-free. Last time I met certified MikroTik trainer in my area, he was an owner of a system integrator company, a very skilled person, so no doubts a good trainer can explain every single bit of MikroTik approach.
