Set Up Mikrotik Wireless Wire Cube Using a Router

What is the Mikrotik Wireless Cube?

The Mikrotik Wireless Cube is a kit of two pre-paired devices that form a blazing fast AES encrypted wireless connection. It's pure plug-and-play: just point the Cubes at one another and power them on. The 60 GHz frequency is unaffected by the crowded wireless spectrum, and it can easily cover a distance of 800 meters and reach fiber-like speed.

Also, the Cubes attract less unwanted attention due to their size and shape. The box includes two Cube 60G ac devices that are already paired together, power supples, PoE injectors and mounting kits for both devices.
