    Using Winbox for the first time…

    If you are plugged into the mikrotik… Connect via MAC. When you are bridging interfaces or change ip scopes… It’s easy to get disconnected. Or say you are playing with firewall rules and manage to ban your ip. Or maybe you set the ip and forgot the dhcp pool. Or… Just do what I say on this one…

    Open Winbox and click on those three dots on the right of the window. Winbox will look for any Mikrotik devices and show IP and MAC.

    Select the MAC and click connect.

    User will be admin.
    Password will be blank.

    Locate system and hit password.

    You will be asked to enter a password twice.

    Next time you connect you will need this password. You can add more users later… But this is a good starting point.
