The documentation on CAPsMAN Sucks
Mikrotik’s CAPsMAN Page
This has been a slight pet peeve of mine with them but in most cases I have been able to find community documentation to help explain things in a bit more detail and sometimes provide a much better account of how to get things running from start to finish.
Primarily I had a number of issues with the screenshots and a lack of detail on setting things up using a router that does not have built in radios. In the end I was able to get things up and running by using information from a number of differing sources.
CAPsMAN is confusing for a reason
It’s a Mikrotik Thing
This becomes a problem when trying to write documentation as they can mostly document what commands and options are available but how to go from start to finish is ultimately up to you, or rather me in this case.
Everything is Configurable
It's Time for a Wiki
I haven’t gone into many specifics here on how I got things configured because this is not the best tool for creating documentation. The real documentation will take place on my wiki page Mikrotik Wireless with CAPsMAN.
I will, however, continue to post on my learning journey here.
