To install your MicroTik mAP pre-configured with NetAngel Connect the MikroTik mAP in between your internet connection (most likely your modem) and your wifi router as follows:

  • Connect one ethernet cable from a LAN port your Internet Service Provider’s equipment (usually a modem) to Eth1 on the MikroTik mAP.

    * Your Internet Service Equipment (modem) may vary in number, color or other ways. However they are usually yellow, or labeled LAN


  • Connect another ethernet cable between the MikroTik mAP’s Eth2 port and the WAN or Internet port on your wifi router.

* Your router's WAN port may vary in color, label, or position. In general there should just be a single WAN port, it may be blue or silver, and maybe labeled WAN or Internet



  • Plug in the provided power addapter for the MikroTik mAP
  • Unplug the power from your Internet Service Provider device (modem) and wait 30 seconds then plug it back in. (This may or may not be necessary for your modem, but some modems must be power cycled when a new device is connected to them.)
  • Wait until all your equipment has time to boot up (30 seconds to 5 minutes depneding on your equipment).
