Steel bracket to put on the other side of a dropdown ceiling tile and two screws and wall anchors. Zip ties or steel clamps for mounting on the pole.

The IP rating scale for this device is IP54. When mounting outdoors, please ensure that any cable openings are directed downwards. We recommend using the POE injector and proper grounding with Cat6 shielded cable. When using and installing this device please pay attention to Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) safety distance with a minimum of 20 cm between the radiator and your body.


Mounting on the mast or pole:
* It's recommended to use electrical tape to increase friction between materials.

  1. Mount plastic tie straps to steel bracket guiding them through holes.
  2. Mount bracket to the device.
  3. Secure them with a screw.
  4. Mount and align the device on the pole or mast.
  5. Guide Ethernet cable through the opening and connect to the Ethernet port.
  6. Close bottom latch and secure with a screw.


It's recommended to secure Ethernet cable to the pole using zip ties. With the distance from the device approximately 30 cm.



Mounting unit on the wall:

  1. Use included a template to mark spots for drilling holes. And if needed for Ethernet cable. Align accordingly, it will depend on how the device will be mounted finally.
  2. Insert dowels if needed, depends on wall structure and material.
  3. Place included a steel bracket on the wall.
  4. Use screws to secure it in the place.
  5. Extend your Ethernet cable through the opening and connect to the Ethernet port.
  6. Mount the device on the steel bracket
  7. Secure it in place with the screw.
  8. Close bottom latch.


Avoid mounting the device on the low ground spot, as you won't be able to attach and close the bottom latch.



Mounting on the ceiling:

A Special bracket is included in the package to mount on the drop ceiling. As it consists of two parts, to be attached on both sides of the ceiling tile.

  1. Use the template to mark spots for holes.
  2. Place both mounting brackets on the spot.
  3. Secure them together using screws.


Continue assembling in the same manner if mounting on the wall.

Antenna usage

We recommend to use an external antenna, the "LR Antenna kit" - can be obtained separately. Antenna kit has pole mount and cable ready to use with LR cards. https://mikrotik.com/product/lora_antenna_kit
SMA connector located under the bottom door is already connected to the LR card and ready to be used. Please see wAP LR8 kit#Mounting section on how to remove the door.

Please connect and disconnect the antenna, when the device is turned off!



Internal antenna 2 dBi can be used for setups where the distance to the gateway are closer than 1km. By default, the antenna is not connected to the card! To use an internal antenna:

  • Use PH2 screwdriver to remove the screw.
  • Disassemble upper case from the bottom by sliding them to opposite sides.

  • Locate internal antenna cable and replace it with the SMA cable connector on the LR card.

  • Reassembly.

Buttons and jumpers

The reset button has three functions:

  • Hold this button during boot time until LED light starts flashing, release the button to reset RouterOS configuration (total 5 seconds).
  • Keep holding for 5 more seconds, LED turns solid, release now to turn on CAP mode. The device will now look for a CAPsMAN server (total 10 seconds).
  • Or Keep holding the button for 5 more seconds until LED turns off, then release it to make the RouterBOARD look for Netinstall servers (total 15 seconds).

Regardless of the above option used, the system will load the backup RouterBOOT loader if the button is pressed before power is applied to the device. Useful for RouterBOOT debugging and recovery.
