  • Affordable, it has more features compared to other brand at the same price.
  • Widely available, by today it's easy to obtained one, even online retailers sell it.
  • Highly customizable, you may write a powerful script to enhance the function.
  • Flexible, you can make different configuration approach based on you needs.
  • Hardware, current ARM based hardware turned out having stability issue. Uncommanded reboot and hang/lock-up occured sometimes.
  • Wi-Fi algorithm, in some cases the wireless module has performance issue.
  • New function that needed by today standard like secure DNS, improved VPN support like WireGuard, etc.
  • Add more function on the script to easy the management and maintenance, like ability to invoce wireless snooper from script.

  • When you are creating a firewall filter rule on a router, the amount of options you have is incredible. For example, most other firewalls or routers will not give you the option to select a connection state, a packet size, specify the packet content etc.
  • You can use the routers in transparent mode, when your router is placed in front of a customer firewall or customer router, allowing only the allocated public IP address to communicate with the Internet and allowing you to allocate a certain bandwidth or speed.
  • The lowest end model routers have the same operating system, features as the more expensive ones making simple for us to test configuration on cheap equipment before commit to buy the more expensive one. The licensing model is very simple as well and easy to understand.
  • The cheapest routers also come with one SFP port, which is great as it is allowing us to connect fiber straight into it. No extra PoE injectors and converter are needed, reducing the number of points of failure.
  • Some of the wiki articles have not been updated or are not accurate enough. We spent a couple of days trying to find an example of implementing a mobile IPSec client solution. But once this has been implemented, it has been solid (always worked). A bigger community would help, and I am finding it hard to find the time to contribute to these articles.

  • It allowed to establish a distribution by areas of the bandwidth allowing to prioritize the access to it to the departments that most needed it
  • It allows to obtain real statistics by user, IP, fragment of network, department and unit of the consumption of bandwidth of the company.
  • Different DSL connections were added to obtain a larger bandwidth and thus be able to efficiently cover the needs of the company.
  • The configuration of the operating system routerOS is not intuitive, it requires advanced knowledge in computer science and free operating systems for its maintenance.
  • To make the load balancing is necessary to have more than one MikroTik device so its implementation in case of that being the solution sought is more expensive.
  • The cost of the devices for solutions at the macro business level is very high, it is a solution whose initial investment requires an important budget

  • Routing protocols.
  • Configuring it is simple and intuitive.
  • IP addressing, and VLAN creation.
  • Multi protocol usage.
  • Mikrotik routers are full of protocols that can be enabled and configured in a quick and simple way.
  • WLAN and hotspot configuration is simple.
  • Not every aspect of functionality is well described and that would be a point for improvement.
  • There could be a tool for firewall testing.
  • Open VPN should be more intuitive.
