Multiple DHCP Servers on single Mikrotik


Mikrotik dhcp server with 3 network cards (LAN,Wireless,WAN), WAN is connected to Internet, Wireless is connected to the subnet and serve as dhcp server  while LAN interface serve for subnet.

Connect to the Mikrotik RouterOS using winbox/ssh and check the ip address(es) of the interfaces:

ip address print


Issue this command, in order to configure the dhcp server for LAN subnet:

ip dhcp-server setup


Issue the same command for the dhcp server configuration on Wireless interface:

ip dhcp-server setup


Now, check the ip setting of the client(s) machines on both subnets:

ipconfig /all



Also confirm the dhcp leases on Mikrotik:

IP -> DHCP Server -> Leases


Hope this will help you!

Please Remember me in your prayers!

    … and the interface must be “up” (there must be a link).

    I tried but did not knew that the interface must be “up”. shure, an interface which is “down” can not assign/distribute ip addresses …

    Thanks for sharing!
