Regarding the IP Pool Mikrotik

ip pool mikrotik

On this occasion, we will discuss the Mikrotik IP pool configuration. However, what is an IP Pool?

IP Pool is one of the features of Mikrotik to determine the IP range that can limit clients that connect wirelessly and are used for DHCP Server and Point to Point. The IP Pool function on Mikrotik is to limit the IP range that will be distributed automatically by the DHCP system.

Configuring IP Pool on MikroTik

Before entering the Mikrotik IP Pool configuration, there are various questions that many people may still be confused about IP Pool, more specifically, the various problems that are often experienced and how to overcome them.

  • What is defined by the IP NAT Pool command when configuring dynamic NAT?
    • Dynamic NAT?
    • global
    • address pool internal IP address range translated
    • available NAT server pool
    • range of external IP addresses allowed to be accessed by internal hosts
  • Failed to give out ip address pool is empty proxy

Maybe this problem is often very annoying, running out of IP is very unpleasant. Maybe to fix it, there are things that might be done.

The trick is to change the subnet. For example from / 24 to / 21.

  • Setup failed to add ip pool pool with such name exists.

In this case, for example, the DNS entered is the one that does “ipconfig / all” on the computer connected to the wlan.

Hotspot address set to

In Route List has the following:

  • 0.0.0 / 0 reachable 530
  • 5.50.0 / 24 bridgeclient reachable
  • 168.88.0 / 24 ether1 unreachable
  • 168.254.0 / 24 bridgeclient reachable
  • 69.219.144 / 28 530 reachable
  • Cannot assign ip address – no more free addresses from pool

On this one problem is actually quite simple, is to get a HWMP plus mesh network.

OK, now enter the Mikrotik IP Pool configuration:

  • Enter Winbox> Select Ip> Click Ip Pool> Click Add (+)

IP Pool Mikrotik

  • Type Name = Limiting the Client> Type Address => Click Apply then OK
    ip pool mikrotik
  • Select Address Pool = Limiting Clients> click Apply, then click OK
    IP Pool Mikrotik
  • Select Address Pool = Limiting Clients> click Apply, then click OK.
    ip pool mikrotik
  • Then go to Dhcp -Server> Make sure in Dhcp2 the Address Pool will change to limit the clientip pool mikrotik
  • the next step is to go to Cmd then check the IP you get> Type ipconfig> then look at the IPv4 Address section you will get an Ip

IP Hotspot Solutions Are Full 254 IP Addresses

IP Pool hotspot from –

For example, it is full, the IP address used is

  1. The solution is to change it to
  2. Then the pool widen, if / 23 it will be –
  3. This way we get 510 IP address or> You can get 1022 hotspot IP address

[Script] How to Save IP Pool on the Mikrotik Hotspot Network

To save IP Pool, the logic is to clean the DHCP lease so that the IP Pool becomes more efficient. Here’s how:

Create a scheduler (System → Scheduler) with the desired interval (for example, this script is executed every 6 hours), then copy & paste the script below to the source member.

# Make Static Lease for Active Hotspot

: log warning message = (“[START] * CLEAN UP DYNAMIC DHCP LEASE *”);

: foreach z in = [/ ip hotspot active find] do = {

: local u ([/ ip hotspot active get $ z user]);

: local m ([/ ip hotspot active get $ z mac-address]);

: local a ([/ ip hotspot active get $ z address]);

/ ip dhcp-server lease make-static [/ ip dhcp-server lease find mac-address = $ m];

/ ip dhcp-server lease comment [find mac-address = $ m] $ u;


# Clean Dynamic Lease and Waiting Status

/ ip dhcp-server lease remove [find dynamic]

/ ip dhcp lease remove [find where status = waiting]

: log warning message = (“[END] * CLEAN UP DYNAMIC DHCP LEASE *”);

After pasting, click Apply then click OK. Thus this script can perform periodic cleaning according to predetermined intervals.
