Setting up a Mikrotik Hotspot with UserManager (Step-By-Step)

15:14 Posted by Jurgens Krause , , , 93 comments
Mikrotik RouterOS provides a very powerful Hotspot Feature. This can be used with the Mikrotik built in Radius server (Userman) or with a remote Radius/Freeradius Server.

You will need:

Mikrotik RouterBOARD:

  • Level 4 or better licence (Lower licences will allow only a single Hotspot client)
  • RouterOS 6.x (5.x will also work, but this tutorial is based on v6.7)
The network will be configured as below. You may need to adjust the IP Addresses to suit your needs

Mikrotik Hotspot Network




Notes:
The RouterBOARD CPU and RAM will directly affect the performance of your Hotspot, so consider beforehand how many clients you wish to connect.
A RouterBOARD 750 can comfortably run about 25-50 users.
In my example I will use a RouterBOARD 532 with one 2.4ghz WLAN card


Please note that I have a Video Tutorial for this available on YouTube


Step 1: Configure internet access on the router


Add Router IP Address:
/ip address add address=10.0.0.2/24 interface=ether1
Change the IP to match your network configuration

  1. Click on the IP Menu
  2. Click on the Addresses Menu
  3. Click "+"
  4. Enter the IP Address you wish to assign to the router, this will be the outward facing IP, so make sure to select the ethernet interface that will give the router internet access.
  5. Click on "Apply"



Configure Upstream DNS Server:
/ip dns set servers=8.8.8.8 allow-remote-requests=yes
This example uses Google's DNS service. You can easily make use of OpenDNS to implement simple filtering, or use your own DNS servers if needed.

  1. Click on the IP Menu
  2. Click on the DNS Menu
  3. Enter your desired DNS server - here I am using Google's DNS
  4. Click on "Apply"


Configure Default Route:
/ip route add dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 gateway 10.0.0.1

  1. Click on IP
  2. Click on Routes
  3. Click on "+"
  4. Enter 0.0.0.0/0 as the Dst. Address
  5. Enter 10.0.0.1 as the Gateway

Test:
Check if you can ping a public ip address like 8.8.8.8

  1. Click on Tools
  2. Click on Ping
  3. Enter a publicly available address 
  4. Click Start 

Step 2: Install User Manager and Hotspot

If you plan to use a stand alone Radius Server, you may skip this step.

Download the firmware package from Mikrotik
Extract the zip file on your local drive
  1. Make sure that the version of the file matches the version and architecture of your device
  2. Open the Files window on winbox
  3. Drag the "user-manager-X.X-xxxxxx.npk" to the files window.
  4. Do the same for "hotspot-X.X-xxxxxx.npk".
  5. Reboot the router (/system reboot)

Step 3: Configure interfaces

First, we need to configure two Bridge interfaces. The first one will be a loopback interface. I have found in the past that if you use the normal loopback address (127.0.0.1), or one of the other static addresses, for the Radius (Usermanager) server, you may experience some difficulties.

3.1.1 - Create Loopback Bridge
/interface bridge add name=Loopback
  1. Click on the "Bridge" menu
  2. Click on "+"
  3. Enter "Loopback" for the bridge name
  4. Click "Apply"


3.1.2 - Add Loopback Bridge IP Address
I use any unused private ip range for this, it is used simply as an interface to run the RADIUS server on.
/ip address add address=10.10.0.1/32 interface=Loopback

  1. Click on the IP Menu
  2. Click on the Addresses menu
  3. Click the "+" button
  4. Enter "10.10.0.1/32" as the IP Address
  5. Select the "Loopback" Interface
  6. Click "OK"


3.2.1 - Create Hotspot Bridge
If you are planning to run the hotspot on a single interface you may skip this step.
/interface bridge add name=Hotspot
  1. Click on the "Bridge" menu
  2. Click on "+"
  3. Enter "Hotspot" for the bridge name
  4. Click "Apply"
3.2.2 - Add Hotspot Bridge IP Address
I make use of the private 192.168.0.1/24 range for the hotspot network, but you can use whatever is suitable in your setup.
/ip address add address=192.168.0.1/24 interface=Hotspot




  1. Click on the IP Menu
  2. Click on the Addresses menu
  3. Click the "+" button
  4. Enter "192.168.0.1/24" as the IP Address
  5. Select the "Hotspot" Interface
  6. Click "OK"

3.2.3 - Add Hotspot Ports to Bridge
If you would like multiple interfaces to have access to the hotspot, you can repeat this process, only changing the interface each time.
If you are running on a RouterBOARD 750 or similar, you will need to add the ports that you AP's are connected to, to the bridge.
/interface bridge port add bridge=Hotspot interface=wlan1
  1. Click on the "Bridge" menu
  2. Click on the "Ports" Tab
  3. Click on the "+"
  4. Select the interface you want to add to the hotspot, in my case it is "wlan1"
  5. Select the "Hotspot" bridge
  6. Click "OK

3.3 - Configure the Access Point
If you are using a RouterBOARD 750 or similar, you will not be using this section.
You may choose to implement security on your access point, but since this is a captive portal, you should not need to use any security. This tutorial will not include any security settings.
/interface wireless set [ find default-name=wlan1 ] band=2ghz-b/g disabled=no mode=ap-bridge ssid=Hotspot
  1. Click on the "Wireless" Menu
  2. Double click on the Wireless Interface that you will be using
  3. Set the mode to "ap-bridge"
  4. Set the band to 2Ghz-B/G (or otherwise if needs be)
  5. Change the SSID to "Hotspot", or whatever suits you.
  6. Click "OK"

4 - Configure the Hotspot

/ip hotspot profile
add dns-name=hotspot.example.com hotspot-address=192.168.0.1 name=hsprof1 smtp-server=192.168.123.4
/ip hotspot
add address-pool=hs-pool-7 disabled=no interface=Hotspot name=hotspot1 profile=hsprof1
/ip hotspot user profile
set [ find default=yes ] idle-timeout=none keepalive-timeout=2m mac-cookie-timeout=3d
/ip hotspot user
add name=dexter password=dexter

  1. Click on the "IP" menu. If this option is not available refer to step 2
  2. Click on the "Hotspot" item
  3. Click on "Hotspot Setup". This will start the Hotspot Setup Wizard

4.1 - The Hotspot Wizard
  1. Select the Hotspot bridge as the Hotspot Interface
  2. Click Next

  1. Click next - The address range should be filled in automatically as per our network configuration.


  1. Click Next - the address pool should be pre-populated with the right settings


  1. This tutorial will not cover the use of Certificates, so you may select "none" and click next

  1. Enter the IP-Address of your SMTP server. Many providers do not allow use of their SMTP servers outside their own network, so this option allows you to circumvent the SMTP server configured on the client's device in favor of your own. (You may even specify the SMTP server of you own provider in some cases)
  2. Click "Next"


These are the upstream DNS servers used by the hotspot.
  1. Enter one or more upstream DNS servers, you can use OpenDNS to provide you with a basic filtering service. Here I use Google's public DNS.
  2. Click "Next"


  1. Enter a host name for the local Hotspot. I am using hotspot.example.com, but this could be anything you want.
  2. Click "Next"


  1. Enter a name for your administrative Hotspot user.
  2. Enter a password for your administrative user.
  3. Click "Next"


  1.  Click "OK" to complete your hotspot setup.


Congratulations, you have now set up basic functionality for a Mikrotik Wireless Hotspot, you can create users under "IP->Hotspot->Users. But alas, you still need to configure the Usermanager for a fully featured hotspot.

Step 5 - Configuring UserManager

5.1 Setting up the Hotspot to use RADIUS
  1. Click on the "IP" menu
  2. Click on "Hotspot"
  3. Select the "Server Profiles" tab
  4. Double click on "hsprof1"
  5. Select the "RADIUS" tab
  6. Tick the "Use RADIUS" tickbox
  7. Click "OK"

  1. Click on "RADIUS"
  2. Click on "+"
  3. Tick the "hotspot" tickbox
  4. Add the loopback bridge IP to the address field, in this tutorial 10.10.0.1
  5. Choose a secure password
  6. Click "OK"

  1. Using your browser of choice, connect to http://router-ip/userman
  2. Click "Log In" - The default username is admin with no password

  1. Once you have logged in, click on the "Routers" menu
  2. Click "Add" then "New"
  3. Enter "Local Router" as the name
  4. Enter the Loopback Bridge IP address
  5. Enter the password you chose earlier.
  6. Click "OK" 


Your Mikrotik Hotspot should now be able to communicate with the Usermanager Radius Server. You can now proceed to set up profiles and users on the user manager interface.

I will soon do a UserManager Tutorial as well.

  1. Hi!

    Great tutorial,

    I was trying to setup a solution in where I use my mikrotik router userman functionality to create a hotspot service for my ruckus zonedirector & access points. Unfortunately.. I am failing at it.

    I have configured the Radius & Radius Accounting server in the zonedirector and when I test the credentials of a userman 'user account' it works. When i join the wifi i put in a redirect to 10.10.10.1/user?subs=zdtest but then it shows a userman login screen in which I can't login.

    Would you be able to assist? alex at ortmanns dot us

    3. Hi Ahasan,

      You can simply put some of the ethernet ports on the RB750 into the hostpot bridge, then plug the wireless access points into those ports, and set them up as simple bridge devices.

  9. I just want to say, If any user have 2 or more devices to use internet at a time and I give him a ID & Password of 512kbps speed where Shared user =2, he get 512kbps speed both of the device. it means 512+512=1mbps speed. I need to share his internet speed in a single user ID. Such as if download is running in both devices will get 256+256=512kbps.
    Is there any solution ?............

    1. Hi Fuad,

      I have not experimented with this, and my quick answer would be no, unless you have some advanced scripting to set up the queues when the user connects. I dont have much time to look into it at the moment though.

  10. I did the same configuration step-by-step on my mikrotik 915. However, when a device tries to connect to the router wirelessly, it get ip in the 192.168.88.xx range. Therefore, the device can connect to internet without authentication. What should I do to solve this problem.
    Thanks your time and consideration in advance.

    1. You need to remove the default configuration before you start, so that you have an absolutely blank system to begin with.

      Delete
    2. Thank you for your helpful and fast response.
      How should I do that? Once I want to remove a default bridge, I lost my connection to modem and modem should be reset.

      Delete
    3. When you select the routerboard in Winbox, click on the MAC address, this will allow you to connect on layer 2, which means the the ip address is not needed

  12. Hy I want to provide a hotspot for my students in a class of about 100 students.
    I want the hospot to be free but will require a login page which will be voucher based.
    I want to be selling the vouchers to them based on the data volume like 100MB data volume for a price.
    My source of intrnet connection will be based on 3G modem. I don't want to run the server remotely and I don't want to use computer still. I just need something that will hang in the class and work anytime it is connected to power. They told me I need only Router Board and Nano Station with cabling. I don't know if that is true but I got to your site through Google.

  14. Hi there,

    I keep getting "Radius server is not responding". I have followed all of these steps and have tried everything I could over the last 2 days and still no luck. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?

    Alternatively, do you have any other way that I can add batches of users easily and quickly with upload and download speed limits and data caps? Perhaps in terminal?

    Cheers,

  15. That message is the bane of my existence. First make sure that you are using the loopback address on both the radius config in winbox, as well as on the Router config under userman and see if that makes any difference

    1. the ip on your loopback device should not be in the same IP range as any of your other addresses. It is used just for the router and the local radius server to communicate. You can use the one in the example (10.10.0.1/32) or something else that makes more sense in your setup.

  21. Hi,

    Not sure of you still monitor this but thank you. I find it very useful.

    If I may. Under 3.2.1, the name at point 3 should be Hotspot.

    I was able to make Hotspot work based on your article. However not Radius server. It does not seem to be working in conjunction with Hotspot.

    I created a couple of users in Radius server but was not able to sign in using these test user credentials. Also, I can still get in the Radius server without supplying a password despite entering the same password as at 5.2 (I think) as per your article.

    Would be grateful for your help.

    Thank you.

  53. There are a couple of ways to do it, but they all come down to having a way to having a way to identify what type a user is, ie. Student, Faculty, Guest etc.

    This example assumes that each user has the user type filled in to the "comment" field in userman.

    We will then use scripting to enable and disable the users at specified times. Please note that I don't have the means at the moment to test this on a running routerboard, so I am doing it from memory. The code may be buggy and you will need to fix it if necessary.

    Add these two scripts under system-scripts

    ------------------------------------------------------
    #Script for enabling certain userman users

    #Declare Variables
    :local userType "student"

    :foreach i in=[/tool user-manager user find where comment=$userType] do={
    /tool user-manager user enable $i
    }
    -------------------------------------------------------


    ------------------------------------------------------
    #Script for disabling certain userman users

    #Declare Variables
    :local userType "student"

    :foreach i in=[/tool user-manager user find where comment=$userType] do={
    /tool user-manager user disable $i
    }
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Now go to system->scheduler and a disable task and an enable task around the times that you need!

  54. Hi and thank you so much for your great article.
    I have a RB750 and a TP-Link Wireless DSL modem that is connected to port 1 of my RB750. I followed your tutorial but in the section: "3.2.3 - Add Hotspot Ports to Bridge"
    I didn't understand what should I do in here: "If you are running on a RouterBOARD 750 or similar, you will need to add the ports that you AP's are connected to, to the bridge."
    Could you please help me with that?
    Thank you a lot.

  58. Thanks for the wonderful information, helping mind and your usual support on Mikrotik router... I am a beginner in Networking and a CCNA student anyway I have issue setting up My Router Board 951G 2HND.

    I will be happy if there is a way we can meet and run the configuration together.


    To be specific I have reset the router time without number and run static and auto config, but at the end the connected system to the router will browse but the hotspot login page will not just come up. I am always stuck at the hotspot configuration. Thanks in anticipation James. neyoitmail@gmail.com
