As a network administrator, one of the first tasks I encountered was setting up the login page for MikroTik routers. The login page acts as a gateway for users to access and manage the router’s settings. In this article, I will guide you through the process of creating and customizing a MikroTik login page.
Before diving into the technical details, let’s take a moment to understand the importance of a login page. Apart from providing a secure way for users to access the router, a well-designed login page can also serve as a branding opportunity. It allows you to tailor the user experience and create a professional image for your organization.
To begin, ensure that you have access to the MikroTik router’s interface. Open your preferred web browser and enter the URL of the router. This usually starts with
