MikroTik RB952Ui-5ac2nD (hAP ac lite)

Under Construction!
This page is currently under construction. You can edit the article to help completing it.

Write a short, relevant description of the device. Include a technical overview, but avoid marketing buzzwords/useless stuff. Two to four sentences is about right. A picture is good, too. Edit the page to see how to add pictures.

FIXME Any text with a light background (like this one) provides instructions for creating the Details Page. When you have filled in correct/useful information (instead of any template that's there) remove the instructions, as well as the <WRAP> that encloses it.

MikroTik RB952Ui-5ac2nD (hAP ac lite)

FIXME

  1. This is an empty template that suggests the information that should be present on a well-constructed Device Page. This means, that you have to fill it with life and information.
  2. There are several “fixme” tags with text on a light background (like this text) throughout this template. As you fill in the page, remove those tags so that people can judge its completeness.
  3. When there are no more “fixme” tags left, delete this one too, along with the <WRAP> that encloses it.
  • Please include only model specific information, omit bla,bla and put everything generic into separate articles
  • If you have no time to write certain stuff, link to docs
  • base-system should lead the way, do not explain this again
  • DO NOT provide a complete howto here! Instead groom the general documentation.

OpenWrt installation with windows

The installation procedure is described and maintained upstream in Common Procedures for Mikrotik RouterBoard Products.

Boot up the RB952Ui, connect your client to any of the ports 2 to 5 but not the Internet labled port (Port 1).

Open the Browser interface, IP Address 192.168.88.1. The user is admin with no password.

Navigate to WebFig → System → Routerboard → Settings

set boot-device to "try-ethernet-once-then-nand"
set force-backup-booter to "yes"

Apply the configuration.

Start the program tftpd32 and configure the TFTP and DHCP servers as follows:

go to Settings...
   1.GLOBAL: you only has to activate the "DHCP Server" and "TFTP Server". 
   2.TFTP: the Base Directory is the link to the folder, where you have saved the configuration file.
   3.DHCP: (for example)
     -IP pool start address: 192.168.88.100
     -Size of pool: 25
     -Boot File: The filename of the configuration file in the Base Directory
     -Mask: 255.255.255.0

Save the configuration and restart tftpd32, so the DHCP and TFTP servers starting.

Reboot the router, while rebooting you must connect your client with the DHCP and TFTP Server to the Internet labled port (Port1) on the router.

Now the router boot over network and when the red lamp on port 5 light up, the router install openwrt.

When the router has finished, you can deactivate the DHCP and TFTP servers and connect your client on port 2 to 5. The new IP Address is 192.168.1.1

Copy the upgrade file with WinSCP to the /tmp folder on the router. Start a SSH session to the router, the username is root. Execute the upgrade file using command “sysupgrade -v -n /tmp/…(filename)”.

FIXME Find out flash layout, then add the flash layout table here (copy, paste, modify the example).

Please check out the article Flash layout. It contains examples and explanations that describe how to document the flash layout.

  • Browse to http://192.168.1.1/cgi-bin/luci/mini/system/upgrade/ LuCI Upgrade URL
  • Upload image file for sysupgrade to LuCI
  • Wait for reboot

If you don't have a GUI (LuCI) available, you can alternatively upgrade via the command line. There are two command line methods for upgrading:

  • sysupgrade
  • mtd

Note: It is important that you put the firmware image into the ramdisk (/tmp) before you start flashing.

sysupgrade

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
sysupgrade /tmp/xxx.abc

mtd

If sysupgrade does not support this router, use mtd.

  • Login as root via SSH on 192.168.1.1, then enter the following commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/XXX/xxx.abc
mtd write /tmp/xxx.abc linux && reboot

Basic configuration After flashing, proceed with this.
Set up your Internet connection, configure wireless, configure USB port, etc.

The router can supply PoE out (passthrough) on the eth5 port. This is controlled with GPIO 14.

Note: According to Mikrotik: “the POE on Ether5 outputs approcimately 2V below input voltage and supports up to 0.58A (So provided 24V PSU will provide 22V/0.58A output to the Ether5 PoE port).”

To enable PoE out (passthrough) set the corresponding value variable in /etc/config/system:

config gpio_switch 'poe_passthrough'
        option name 'PoE Passthrough'
        option gpio_pin '14'
        option value '1'

A reboot is require to activate the change.

!!! Update: Snapshots with Kernel 5.4 may use a different GPIO number for PoE passthrough.

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

The default network configuration is:

Interface Name Description Default configuration
br-lan EXAMPLE LAN & WiFi EXAMPLE 192.168.1.1/24
vlan0 (eth0.0) EXAMPLE LAN ports (1 to 4) EXAMPLE None
vlan1 (eth0.1) EXAMPLE WAN port EXAMPLE DHCP
wl0 EXAMPLE WiFi EXAMPLE Disabled

FIXME Please fill in real values for this device, then remove the EXAMPLEs

Numbers 0-3 are Ports 1-4 as labeled on the unit, number 4 is the Internet (WAN) on the unit, 5 is the internal connection to the router itself. Don't be fooled: Port 1 on the unit is number 3 when configuring VLANs. vlan0 = eth0.0, vlan1 = eth0.1 and so on.
