How to create a virtual port or wlan

Sat Feb 20, 2021 3:05 pm

Hello, I am having a little problem on my mikrotik device. I just want to know how to create a virtual port on disc lite 5 cos it only have one port and I need another port to run a different service.

Below are the step.
1. Create a bridge
2. Create a virtual port and virtual wlan

Please take note that the ether1 and wlan had been used. I just need it to create a custom service and I just need to add another port since I am not allowed to use switch in this case.

Thank you.

You will not be able to create a virtual wlan interface as it is supported with license lvl4, but the Disc lite 5 comes with lvl3. You will need to upgrade your license if you want to implement those features: ... nse_Levels

Is that license good for 24 hrs or one week.
Egads could I have a coffee please, sure.
Oh by the way this coffee needs sugar, oh thats extra $$............ ;-(

Since when do you nickel and dime on virtual wlans?
Either the radio is capable of it or it is not.
