Some Useful MikroTik configuration ?

How to view MikroTik configuration ?

Recently I set up another MikroTik and I had to share the configuration, so to see it in the terminal, run the command:

/export compact

To save the configuration to a file, run the command:

/export compact file=config

After saving, the file will be located in the device’s memory, it can be seen and downloaded from the Files menu via the web interface or winbox, ftp, smb, sftp.

Hiding a MikroTik router on the network

Since MikroTik routers use the MNDP (Neighbor Discovery Protocol) protocol as standard, which allows you to display information about the device, you can disable it as follows:

1) Via GUI or Winbox. Open the IP menu -> Neighbors -> Discovery Interfaces tab -> select the desired interface -> click the red cross.

2) Through the command line. By typing the command ip neighbor discovery set ether2 discover=no.

There is no Wireless tab in the Mikrotik router menu

The solution to this problem is elementary. You need to do two things:
1) In the “System” menu, open “Packages” – “Wireless” and check the “Enable” box.
2) Reboot the router. Also located in the “System” – “Reboot” menu.
Everything, after loading, the Wireless tab will appear at the top of the router menu.

Using Wake On Lan on MikroTik

Here is an example of a command to send a wol packet:

  • tool wol mac=FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF

By default, the packet is sent from the gateway interface, but you can also specify the interface manually:

  • tool wol interface=ether1 mac=FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF
