Factory reset a MikroTik hEX PoE RB960PGS using the reset button

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/02

[WayBack] Manual:Reset – MikroTik Wiki:

 unplug the device from power

2) press and hold the button right after applying power

Note: hold the button for 5 seconds (USER LED will start flashing)

3) release the button to clear configuration.

Initial configuration

(see also [WayBack] Manual:First time startup – MikroTik Wiki)

  1. Connect your machine to port 1 on the Mikrotik hEX PoE RB960PGS (after the reset, this port will have IPv4 address with netmask
  2. Ensure your local machine to IPv4 address with netmask (otherwise WinBox might not see the router, not even in discovery mode):

  3. Have WinBox auto discover it:

  4. Connect with user admin and no password:


  5. Configure your Mikrotik hEX PoE RB960PGS as router or switch

For switch, I prefer a setting like this (the bold portions are different from the default configuration):

/interface bridge
add admin-mac=64:D1:54:13:98:E6 auto-mac=no comment=defconf name=bridgeLocal
/interface wireless security-profiles
set [ find default=yes ] supplicant-identity=MikroTik
/ip hotspot profile
set [ find default=yes ] html-directory=flash/hotspot
/interface bridge port
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=ether1
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=ether2
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=ether3
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=ether4
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=ether5
add bridge=bridgeLocal comment=defconf interface=sfp1
/ip dhcp-client
add comment=defconf dhcp-options=hostname,clientid disabled=no interface=bridgeLocal
/ip dns static
add address= name=router.lan
/system clock
set time-zone-name=Europe/Amsterdam
/system identity
set name="RB960PGS <<location-name>>"
/system ntp client
set enabled=yes,,,

Geurthee nr. 5 theebuiltjes – De Pelikaan Zutphen – Koffie/theespecialist sinds 1816

[WayBack] Geurthee nr. 5 theebuiltjes – De Pelikaan Zutphen – Koffie/theespecialist sinds 1816

Een huisgemelangeerde zwarte thee met een gerookt tintje. Perfecte keuze als u van Earl Grey houdt en opzoek bent naar een extra smaaksensatie

Onze Geurthee nr. 5 is een gemelangeerde zwarte thee. Naast dat wij onze Geurthee nr. 2 hiervoor gebruiken, zitten er nog meer theesoorten in verwerkt zoals Lapsang Souchong. Lapsang Souchong is een zwarte theesoort uit China en is erg sterk van smaak. Deze thee wordt in bamboemanden gedroogd boven brandend naald- of cypressenhout. Dit zorgt ervoor dat er zich een sterke rooksmaak ontwikkeld. Ook is de Geurthee nr. 5 sterk gearomatiseerd met Bergamot-olie. Bergamot is een citrusvrucht die wordt gebruikt als smaakmaker in Earl Grey. Door al deze ingrediënten met elkaar te melangeren, ontstaat er een heerlijke Earl Grey met een gerookt tintje


Theekopje Pelikaan   ZETADVIES (1 kop): 1 zakje, water opschenken (95°C -100°C), 2-3 minuten laten trekken. Één zakje kan zelfs voor een hele pot gebruikt worden!


15 piramide theebuiltjes
