Notes for starting with RouterOS
We recommend to update RouterOS to the latest version from the start, to delete the default configuration (in order to then configure it yourself) and to use the Winbox for administration (access via IP or MAC address).
Where possible, we use RouterOS (even if SwOS should be available), as SwOS is only a rudimentary RouterOS anyway. The access (Winbox (IP, MAC), SSH, web, etc.) and configuration options are more convenient here.
Note: Please always create a backup after important configuration sections and save it externally!
