The Smart WiFi Dashboard can send commands to the Mikrotik or you can use the Winbox utility if the controller is local to you. Some Mikrotik controllers have 2 radios inside of them that you may choose to enable (1 for 2.4GHz., and 1 for 5GHz.).
With the introduction of the Smart WiFi Platform v 2.16, we’ve added a switch function in the Gateway editor to automatically add the correct scripts to enable the second radio. By default the second radio will be enabled with the same SSID as the first radio. Simply tick the WLAN2 button.
If you want to manually enable the second radio in a Mikrotik device, send the following command when the device is connected:
- If you are near the device and able to use Winbox, then simply login to the device and run this command from the terminal Window.
- If the device is already deployed and remote, you can send a command to it through the Smart WiFi Dashboard. The command syntax would be:
/interface wireless set wlan2 mode=ap-bridge ssid=”YOUR_DESIRED_SSID_HERE” default-forwarding=no disabled=no
/interface bridge port add bridge=bridge2-LAN_SPLASH interface=wlan2
KEEP IN MIND THAT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL WORK FOR YOU AND YOU USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
