Adding and access point

Thu Nov 12, 2020 4:37 pm

I have my basic Mikrotik Router RB962UiGS-5HacT2HnT with dual wi-fi (2GHz and 5Gz) networks and everything works ok.
I'd like to add an additional access point for the upper floor since the wi-fi signal coming from my router becomes there very poor.

So I bought a Mikrotik wAP ac ( RBwAPG-5Hac T2HnD ) and I connect it with an ethernet cable to the port 5 of my main router (which supports POE).

I’d like to setup that wAP will have both wi-fi networks as the main router has (with same SSID and password), and get DHCP from my main router, so the user will be automatically switched to the better wi-fi (the main router or wAP) when he comes to the zone of bad signal from one of the wi-fi.
I also wanted that the wAP is just inside my main LAN (for example So if my main router is and DHCP pool is, it makes sense to me, the wAP should have a local IP

I guess I need setting the wAP as a bridge.

What would be the optimal configuration of the wAP – can you please give me an information about some manual if exist about it or point me to some similar discussion.
