requirements

In this article we assume the following:

  1. that you have installed an FTP program that can transfer files to your router
  2. that you're license allows upgrading

upgrade process

  • First step - visit www.mikrotik.com and head to the download page, there choose the type of system you have the RouterOS installed on.
  • Download the Combined package, it will include all the functionality of RouterOS:

  • Connect to your router with Winbox, Select the downloaded file with your mouse, and drag it to the Files menu:

  • The upload will start:

After it finishes - REBOOT and that's all! The New version number will be seen in the Winbox Title and in the Packages menu

As an alternative, use FTP:

  • Open your favourite FTP program (in this case it is Filezilla), select the package and upload it to your router (demo2.mt.lv is the address of my router in this example). note that in the image I'm uploading many packages, but in your case - you will have one file that contains them all

  • if you wish, you can check if the file is successfully transferred onto the router (optional):


[normis@Demo_v2.9] > file print
