Hi Guys,

has anyone had much experience with MikroTik gear?

How does it compare for reliability/functionality with Cisco gear?

Also where is the best place to buy it from?

Any advice, storys or warnings would be welcome....

I know some people that use them as a replacement for Cisco's and they can't stop saying how great they are, especially given the value for money.

Where they buy from I couldn't tell you, though if you're really interested reply back and I'll see what I can dig up for you.

What sort of features are you looking to utilise?

However you can run the Mikrotik OS on most i386 platforms.

We've had good experiences ordering Routerboards from
If you're looking for a NZ supplier try
Otherwise if you just want the software to run on any old PC, its easiest to buy direct from
