A while back I mentioned a follow up to an old blog post about the RouterBoard that i’d recently purchased and setup for home use. This is a very belated update on that board.
My requirements have since changed from the original post, but not dramatically so. The requirement for LACP has disapeared, IPSec is no longer used, but a requirement for Dynamic Routing has appeared.
All in all, I have to say that I still cannot recommend RouterOS enough. I’ve been using it the past 4 1/2 years, and have recommended a large number of folks to use it.
The main reason behind this is that it just works, there’s not really any faffing about that needs to be done, and if you’re running the stable release, everything does just work.
Feature wise, this is right up there with some of the big brands (Cisco, Juniper et all), however its fair to say not with the same price tag.
