II. MikroTik Configuration Tutorial – Dynamic IP Configuration
After successfully configuring with a static IP, now we try to configure with Dynamic IP. This should be easier than configuring with Static IP. To be able to configure a Dynamic IP, we need a modem (gateway) that has a DHCP Server feature.
Getting started, the steps starting from logging into Winbox to changing the name Ether are still the same as the configuration with Static IP. So to shorten this topic, we immediately skip the stages that have been discussed on the previous page.
This tutorial is also will be publish along with a Video Tutorial, so for those of you who want to immediately see the video tutorial just scroll down to the bottom of this page.
Configuring DHCP Client on MikroTik Ether
After logging into Winbox, on the IP tab select the DHCP Client menu. On the DHCP Client screen, click the “add” button then fill the MikroTik interface that is connected to the modem / gateway (we assume the ether used is Ether1-Internet). Click ‘OK’ then wait until the DHCP connection is successfully created, generally only takes 1-3 seconds (Image 1).
At this point, your MikroTik router has successfully connected to the Internet. The rest, you just configure Ether2-LAN, provide IP and NAT configuration. Then the MikroTik Router is ready to use. Much simpler isn’t it? Now if you’re still confused, try watching the tutorial video below:
