MetaRouter is a new feature in RouterOS 4.0 beta 1.

MetaRouter is used for the RB400 series boards to create virtual routers.


The /metarouter menu gives the following:

  • add - allows you to create a new virtual router
  • print - lets you list any virtual routers
  • enable - to enable a virtual router
  • disable - to diable a virtual router
  • console - lets you access the console of a virtual router
  • interface - lets you make network interface mappings


 [admin@MikroTik] /metarouter> add
 [admin@MikroTik] /metarouter> print
 Flags: X - disabled
