Mikrotik RouterBoard RB3011 purchased

Been looking at a future purchase of a Mikrotik RouterBoard RB3011 for home. Lucky for me I noticed someone selling one of these units 2nd hand and thus was able to purchase a year old model at a reduced price compared to the new retail price.

More information here on this router.


Mikrotik RouterOS 6.41 changes

Been a little busy the past week, but did notice Mikrotik RouterOS 6.41 released on 22nd Dec 2017.

It has some significant changes that I wanted to highlight from the changelog and quickly show the changes in the winbox interface.

!) bridge – implemented software based vlan-aware bridges;

!) switch – “master-port” conversion into a bridge with hardware offload “hw” option;

!) detnet – implemented “/interface detect-internet” feature;

The switch changes is the one that got my interest, as this is the one that I have known and used since I first started to use Mikrotik hardware. So now I have to get my head around the fact it has changed.


You can see from the images above that Master Port is no longer used and/or available under your interfaces to group interfaces together as switched ports. This is now done differently.

Upgraded one of my routers and I think I understand how this change impacts future configurations and setup process.
