Hotspot Redirection - Multiple Subnets Issue

Wed Jul 11, 2018 10:32 am

Hi All,

I currently have an issue with hotspot redirect on MikroTik RB951G-2HnD, if my hotspot / IP-pool is configured as a /24 network.
i.e with my hotspot address being the MikroTik's IP address for the hotspot network (, when I increase the IP-Pool to include an additional subnet ( and devices obtain an IP address on range, the hotspot redirection does not occur.

Please could you advise/provide guidance on this.

Simply include an additional subnet from the pool is not enough because is a different network.

Add these:
/ip address add address= interface=(same interface as
/ip dhcp-server network add address= gateway=
/ip firewall nat add src-address= action=masquerade

Otherwise you can change to a bigger subnet like /23.
