Microtik L3 deployment

Mon Apr 21, 2014 8:40 pm

Hi all,

Actually i want to deploy Mikrotik as a Wireless Access Gateway to offer wifi services and manage some users. i was wondering if it is possible to have a layer 3 connection between Mikrotik and the users or if it is necessary to have a L2 tunnel between them.

Many thanks in advance!

Many things are possible with RouterOS... I'm wondering, why do you need L3 connectivity from the end client to the Mikrotik device. Normally if you use Wireless AP, the IP traffic is forwarded over L2 to the wired network.
Could you elaborate on your requirements?
