RB750 / 750G - Setup for UniFi

 

Thanks to LYN member Oreomambo for advising how to setup this device for UniFi !
Also thanks to Soliton SG's technical staff Neb for his remote support !
Initial setup was posted here.

 

Notes:

  • This 2-in-1 device has vlan tagging (500 for Internet & 600 for IPTV) and router functions, it does not have wifi
  • This device has lots of advance features and functions (honestly I still not fully understand all yet!), advance user will appreciate and like this device
  • User may need to setup a wifi router
  • Since I'm not technical enough to use codes to program the device, I personally prefer to use the WinBox (window base) to configure the unit
  • You may download the WinBox here or  visit http://www.mikrotik.com/download.html and select "Winbox configuration tool" under "Tools / Utilities" section to download
  • Default IP is 192.168.88.1 user ID is "admin"  with blank password
  • You need to set your PC/laptop with static IP 192.168.88.x  subnet 255.255.255.0 to access the device
  • This setup for UniFi is just basic to connect internet & IPTV only, you may need to refer the following links for further setup on:
