RouterOS is an operating system that can turn a standard PC or X86 embedded board into a dedicated router, a bandwidth shaper, a transparent packet filter, or a wireless enabled device.

If you need features and power on a budget, then read on. If you are new to MikroTik or RouterOS, this is going to astound you.

Review:

A must for RouterOS beginners...

Pros:
-Actual configuration examples and step-by-step setups
-extremely well-written and understandable
-Diagrams!
-Pictures!
-Doesn't feel like a rewording of the Mikrotik online manual

Cons:
-Didn't quite go into the detail I wanted about a certain topic, but that's just me.
-Wish certain things were more fine-grained with examples of WHY we are to do it this way

Get this first! --Brandini, Amazon verified purchaser

It has a very different approach from the official manual. The examples are very well documented. This was a great help for me. --By A.STAVRAKAKIS & SON CORP, Amazon verified purchaser

I purchased this book, because I decided that my IT firm should get into Mikrotik. This book enabled me to learn router OS and successfully deploy many many routers . --CG, Amazon verified purchaser
