Have you ever been in a cafe, restaurant or a park where they offer internet on wireless? You normally get connected to their Wi-Fi and it is mostly asking you to enter a username and a password to be able to get access to the internet – This is what a hotspot is.

You, as a MikroTik network engineer, may be asked to install and configure a Wireless hotspot in your company or at your customer place and things look too complicated to you to do this task. This course will help to go step by step using a lot of LABs to understand how to install a wireless hotspot and what are the best tips needed to be used to have the hotspot working well.

In this course, I will start installing the hotspot from scratch and I will go through all the options available in the hotspot. Things like user management, profiles, bandwidth limitation, Walled garden, hotspot advertisement, IP binding, connecting the hotspot to the user Manager, generating vouchers for users and many other topics will be covered in this course so you have the full knowledge of how to configure the wireless hotspot when being asked.

The course will be based on LABs to make things very easy to you when you want to deploy this in your real network. The LABs are designed on step-by-step methodology which is always used in all my courses.
