This demonstration is going to be simple and straight to the point. Let us assume that you have a local area network on which your network printer, file server and other network resources have been configured and are working properly with no internet access. Now you have a WiMAX modem through which you want your LAN users to have access to the internet. How do you integrate your WiMAX into your already configured Mikrotik setup. In this post, I will share with us on how to configure a mikrotik router to work with Wimax.
Your WiMAX, which comes with one or two ethernet ports, has been pre-configured with DHCP, default gateway and DNS. To get the Mikrotik to work with it, you need to provision a port on the Mikrotik as a dhcp client. This port will connect to the WiMAX and obtain IP address, subnetmask, default gateway and DNS server address from the. Assuming we want to use ether1 on the Mikrotik for this, the below commands will accomplish it.
