The first step is to design the login page according to your preferences. You can use any HTML editor or even a simple text editor to create the login page. Make sure to keep the essential login elements such as username and password fields, along with any additional customization you want to add like company logo, background image, or footer text.

Once you have designed the login page, the next step is to upload it to your MikroTik router. To do this, you will need to access the router’s web interface.

  1. Open your preferred web browser and enter the IP address of your MikroTik router in the address bar. The default IP address is usually “192.168.88.1”.
  2. Enter the administrative username and password to log in to the router’s web interface.
  3. Navigate to the “Files” menu on the left-hand side of the web interface.
  4. Click on the “Upload” button to select and upload the login page file from your computer.

  1. Go to the “IP” menu and select “Hotspot” from the drop-down list.
  2. Click on the “Hotspot Setup” button to open the hotspot setup wizard.
  3. Follow the wizard’s steps to configure the hotspot settings according to your requirements. Make sure to select your uploaded login page from the “HTML Template” drop-down menu.
  4. Save the changes and exit the hotspot setup wizard.

Step 4: Testing the Login Page

Once you have completed the above steps, it’s time to test your newly customized login page.

  1. Connect a device to the MikroTik hotspot network.
  2. Open your web browser and try to access any website. You should be automatically redirected to your custom login page.
