The most noticeable difference in user experience setting up HotSpot system in version 2.9 from the previous RouterOS versions is that it has become in order of magnitude easier to set up a correctly working HotSpot system.
Given a router with two interfaces: Local (where HotSpot clients are connected to) and Public, which is connected to the Internet. To set up HotSpot on the Local interface:
- first, a valid IP config is required on both interfaces. This can be done with /setup command. In this example we will assume the configuration with DHCP server on the Local interface
- valid DNS configuration must be set up in the /ip dns submenu
- To put HotSpot on the Local interface, using the same IP address pool as DHCP server uses for that interface:
/ip hotspot add interface=local address-pool=dhcp-pool-1
- and finally, add at least one HotSpot user:
/ip hotspot user add name=admin
These simple steps should be sufficient to enable HotSpot system
