Congratulations, you have got hold of MikroTik router for your home network. This guide will help you to do initial configuration of the router to make your home network a safe place to be.
The guide is mostly intended in case if default configuration did not get you to the internet right away, however some parts of the guide is still useful.
Router's initial configuration should be suitable for most of the cases. Description of the configuration is on the back of the box and also described in the online manual.
The best way to connect wires as described on the box:
- Connect ethernet wire from your internet service provider (ISP) to port ether1, rest of the ports on the router are for local area network (LAN). At this moment, your router is protected by default firewall configuration so you should not worry about that;
- Connect LAN wires to the rest of the ports.
