I'm new to Mikrotik, and support forums. Took me 2 days to find the words "Routerboard" and the number "6.22", in order to actually register for a support forum account. Still don't understand those 2 things fully, certainly not my RouterOS version lol.
Asked Mikrotik support for assistance but still no reply I finally sussed out the registration form, after much frustration.
The sad part is, my initial setup questions are very basic. I feel I'm over my head, of I can't even fill out the registration form!
I'm trying to initially setup a RB2011uiAS-RM, to replace a small 4-port modem/router, and then add bonded ADSL connections. Firstly I'm trying to physically install the router, and setup new IP addresses and DHCP server to suit my existing network (Ubiquiti based PtMP fixed wireless clients).
I've tried to follow the "Initial setup" guide in the wiki, but it doesn't tell me a whole lot, besides changing to a static ISP setup, which I don't need. It doesn't talk about setting up/changing basic things like and new network, or DHCP server.
I just want to change the default address and DHCP from 192.168.88.x etc, to a 10.1.10x network, as all my CPA are setup on currently. I'm not a networking person (electrician actually), but can get my hands dirty, this is a little embarrassing for something so simple! The only option I have, is to change my entire network to suit the default IP setup! Not keen, are the words coming to mind
I'm struggling to set this up, and currently about to spend $150/hr+ on a remote Mikrotik consultant just to do this. I'd prefer to spend that money actually getting the real work done.
Surely I can work this simple stuff out, even on a Mikrotik. From there I can learn all sorts of things. I'm using the Webfig for now, not wanting to complicate things even more! Happy to get my hands dirty though
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I've had this Mikrotik router since April, and local IT pros aren't confident with RouterOS, and not keen to learn anything new.
