All you need to provide a reliable network connectivity

  • DHCP or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is a function for the easy and automatic distribution of IP host information across a network. In this video, we aim to provide you with a simple example to show the DHCP server setup process and set you for the practical implementation of DHCP servers and clients on our home lab network in the next tutorial.


  • DHCP, which stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, bears the responsibility of easy and automatic distribution and assignment of IP host configuration information throughout a network. It gives host clients IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateways, and DNS servers. To learn how the DHCP client works in MikroTik's RouterOS, watch this video.


  • As a MikroTik user, sometimes you may come across a non-responsive or malfunctioning hardware with a dead RouterOS. If so, bear in mind that all is not lost. You can simply use Netinstall to completely format your hardware and reinstall a fresh OS in order to regain access and reconfigure your device. Also, you may find yourself without the correct credentials and locked out of your device. Again, Netinstall can come to the rescue by wiping all configurations. Either way, watch this video to learn when and how Netinstall can be used with MikroTik hardware.


  • Quite similar to Backup but with slightly different yet fundamental differences, Import and Export are two other features of RouterOS that are highly useful for network managers and system integrators when it comes to mass configurations, integrations, RouterOS branding, and so on. Watch this video to learn how you can export and import router configurations, how they differ from backup, and what you need to know when using these features.


  • When working with internet connectivity hardware, especially in intricate networks with numerous detailed configurations, having a backup of your settings is crucial and a total lifesaver when conducting major troubleshooting activities. MikroTik's RouterOS makes it very easy to backup all RouterBOARD configurations in case you ever need to revert back to previous router settings. In this tutorial, we'll discuss how to create and use backup files in RouterOS.
