Mikrotik Audience and CAPSMAN

Sun Dec 08, 2019 6:01 pm

Hello forum, ..

Is the new Mikrotik Audience AP working with CAPSMAN?
Can I integrate it to an existing capsman network with mainly wAP APs and a cloud core router?

Thank you, ...

Audience has the same software (ROS) like all other Mikrotik devices... so yes it can...

By default, the Audience itself is a CAPsMAN server and will manage other devices or other Audiences you join to it.
But since it's a regular RouterOS device, like all of MikroTik devices, you can clear config and use it as you want.

Looks like these devices have a "join to mesh" button. Is that just reset with cap mode?

Yes, basically that. MikroTik devices are versatile, these are no different. They are just preconfigured for something you can do yourself.

Here is the button description from the manual:

Normis,

my audience LTE also shows sometimes a "solid green" light ???
No clue what that is as its not mentioned in the user guide.
Any idea?

PS: actually I turned the front lights off as they are a bit too bright. LED with brightness control
would have been nice as this device is on my shelf (it's so awesome...).

Sorry, got screwed in my comment. (stop laughing at me :-) )

I meant I get a solid green light, but I have only one audience and only set up as
an classic AP!!!
So no mesh mode or capstan etc..

Sorry for confusion (as said I have turned them off already some week ago...)
