This is a class A device. In a domestic environment, this product might cause radio interference in which case the user might be required to take adequate measures.

Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation: This MikroTik equipment complies with the FCC, IC and European Union radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. 

First use

  1. Choose your powering solution, please see the Powering section for possibilities.
  2. Remove the lid, and connect the antenna to the RP-SMA connectors. Bend the cable with a large radius, so that it will be able to exit through the cable openings in the bottom of the lid. Put the lid back, with the small arrow to the front of the case.
  3. Open the device bottom door, to reveal the Ethernet connector.
  4. Connect your direct input power jack if not using POE, to start up the device.
  5. Connect your Ethernet cable to the Gigabit Ethernet port.
  6. The device will boot up and after a short beep Wireless network will be available for connecting.
  7. Open network connections on your pc, mobile phone, or other device and search for MikroTik wireless network and connect to it.
  8. Once connected to the wireless network, open https://192.168.88.1 in your web browser to start configuration, since there is no password by default, you will be logged in automatically (or, for some models, check user and wireless passwords on the sticker).
  9. We recommend clicking the "Check for updates" button and updating your RouterOS software to the latest version to ensure the best performance and stability.
  10. Choose your country, to apply country regulation settings, and set up your password on the screen that loads.

Mounting

The device can be mounted in several ways: wall, ceiling, pole. To tighten the device to a pole, use the provided metal hose clamp.

Guide the loop around the device through the provided holes, and around the pole where it will be mounted, or use a DIN mount to attach the device to a rail:

You should avoid connecting a loose Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port, secure the cable to a wall or the pole, so that the cable weight is not pulling the port. It is recommended to secure the Ethernet cable less than 2m from the device. This is to ensure that the cable doesn't damage the port by its weight, or doesn't fall out. It is possible to connect grounding wires to the PCB board mounting holes, but to do this, you must remove the PCB from the case.

Warning! This equipment should be installed and operated with a minimum distance of 380 cm between the device and your body. Operation of this equipment in the residential environment could cause radio interference.

Powering

The device accepts power from the power jack or from the Ethernet port:

  • Direct-input power jack (5.5mm outside and 2mm inside, female, pin positive plug) accepts 24 V DC.
  • Ethernet port accepts passive Power over Ethernet 18-57 V DC (Please compensate voltage for loss due to cable length)

The power consumption under maximum load can reach 12 W. For BaseBox 6 model up to 23 W.

Configuration

RouterOS includes many configuration options in addition to what is described in this document. We suggest
starting here to get yourself accustomed to the possibilities: https://mt.lv/help. In case IP connection is not available,
the Winbox tool (https://mt.lv/winbox) can be used to connect to the MAC address of the device from the LAN side
(all access is blocked from the Internet port by default).
For recovery purposes, it is possible to boot the device from the network, see a section Reset button.

Expansion Slots and Ports

  • BaseBox 2 model - 2.4 GHz, 802.11b/g/n.
  • BaseBox 5 model - 5 GHz, 802.11a/n.
  • BaseBox 6 model - 6 GHz, 802.11a/n.
  • One 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port, supporting automatic cross/straight cable correction (Auto MDI/X), so you can use either straight or crossover cable for connecting to other network devices.
  • USB type-A slot.
  • One miniPCIe slot. This device might be incompatible with the R11e-LTE international modem.

The miniPCI-e slot usage

  1. Remove top cover;
  2. Unscrew two screws on the back of the device;
  3. Open Ethernet port cover and withdraw it from the base of the device;
