Dear users,

I have Basebox 2 want to use it as a repeater without changing the source (Mobile) MAC address. I want it to appear as a replica of the master AP.

We have one SSID in all the Wi-Fi Access points and also the Basebox2 will have the same SSID as the rest.

this is important since we have multiple vendor Access points such as Unifi AC-Mesh Pro and Ligo-Wave and we also we have a voucher system that relays on the MAC address to authenticate the mobile.

Think of it as an amplifier.


How to configure the Basebox-2 to be an amplifier so it wont change the MAC address of the mobile?

It's not possible due to lack of standardization. Read this article: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:W ... tion_Modes
