Minim Launches MikroTik Router Firmware Management Feature for Internet Service Providers

Cloud-based router management offers automatic security and updates for ISPs that deploy MikroTik routers in subscriber homes

MikroTik is a leading connectivity brand for Wireless ISPs (WISPs) and is now sold in 145 countries

MANCHESTER, NH, Aug. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Minim, Inc. (NASDAQ: MINM), the creator of intelligent networking products, today announced that its WiFi as a Service platform can directly manage MikroTik device firmware in subscriber homes. The new feature enhances subscriber network security by ensuring timely device updates and centralized device visibility for the Internet Service Provider (ISP). It also eliminates time, cost, and complexity for ISPs that manually manage these updates; individual updates can take an IT team an average of 10 to 15 minutes per router to perform.

MikroTik routers are used by ISPs worldwide as a fast, flexible, reliable, and affordable choice for homes and offices. The MikroTik brand is especially popular amongst Wireless ISPs (WISPs) — an industry segment that now serves some seven million customers in the U.S. and is seeing their customer base double every five years, according to an April 2021 report from The Carmel Group and the WISP Association (WISPA).

“Consistently reliable and speedy WiFi coverage throughout the home is now crucial. Affordable router solutions that address slow speed, WiFi interruption, and home coverage gaps are highly sought by consumers and help bridge the digital divide,” said Mark Vena, Senior Director of Parks Associates’ Smart Home research practice. “Software architectures that support low-cost routers have a great opportunity to capitalize on the strong growth expected in the rural U.S. broadband market and developing economies.”

Minim’s WiFi as a Service platform supports the majority of MikroTik models, including LTE devices, with the most popular currently including the MikroTik hAP ac2, MikroTik hAP ac, and MikroTik RB4011. Minim’s platform offers the following key benefits for ISPs: 

  • Reduces the need for costly truck rolls to send technicians out for on-site service,
  • Reduces customer churn by improving poor in-home WiFi performance and the overall support experience, and
  • Creates a cost-effective way to service customers with a low average revenue per user (ARPU) and automates the support of low-cost, minimally featured hardware.
  • Provides hardware choice; the Minim platform now manages device brands including: Motorola, ZTE, GL.iNet, and TP-Link.

“Using Minim drastically cut our truck rolls and service calls,” said Matthew Grubbs, Wireless Engineer at Skyweb Illinois, a rural WISP in Central Illinois that deploys MikroTik routers. “I am positive we have less churn due to the fact that we are able to pinpoint problems 10x faster.”

Manual:Upgrading RouterOS

It is suggested to always keep your RouterOS installation up to date, MikroTik always keeps adding new functionality and improving performance and stability by releasing updates.

Automatic upgrade

Icon-note.png

Note: Do not unplug power while router is being upgraded.


The automatic upgrade feature connects to the MikroTik download servers, and checks if there is a new RouterOS version for your device. If yes, a changelog is displayed, and Upgrade button is shown. Clicking the upgrade button, software packages are automatically downloaded, and device will be rebooted. Even if you have a custom set of packages installed, only the correct packages will be downloaded.

Icon-note.png

Note: If you are running v5.25 or older, the system will only auto-upgrade to the most recent version of the v5 major version release and not up to v6.20. Manual upgrade is needed in this case.


Upgrade button in QuickSet:

Quickset-upgrade.jpg

Upgrade button in the Packages menu:

Package-upgrade.png

After clicking the Upgrade button, Changelog is shown:

Changelog-upgrade.png

By clicking "Download & Upgrade", downloads will start, and router will reboot. After the reboot, your router will be running the latest RouterOS version. You can then click the Upgrade button again, to confirm that your router is running the latest RouterOS.

RouterOS version release chains

When upgrading RouterOS, you can choose a release chain from which to install the new packages. For mission critical installations, bugfixes-only release chain is suggested, as it does not include freshly added new features and is kept for a long time on the download page, with only critical fixes applied to it.

  • Bugfixed-only version is the most stable release without new features, just most important fixes. Updated rarely, only when a critical issue is found in a bugfixes-only release.
  • Current includes the same fixes plus improvements and new features. Once a current release has been tested for several months, it is promoted to bugfix-only and is no longer updated with features.
  • Release candidate released a few times per week. Includes newest features, released without intensive testing. Not recommended for production.
Icon-note.png

Note: Since RouterOS v6.44beta6 release channels have been renamed - "bugfix" to "long-term", "current" to "stable" and "release candidate" to "testing".

Manual upgrade methods

You can upgrade RouterOS in the following ways:

  • Winbox – drag and drop files to the Files menu
  • WebFig - upload files from Files menu
  • FTP - upload files to root directory
  • The Dude – See manual here

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:

Using Winbox

Choose your system type, and download the upgrade package:

Downloadpage.jpg

Connect to your router with Winbox, Select the downloaded file with your mouse, and drag it to the Files menu. If there are some files already present, make sure to put the package in the root menu, not inside the hotspot folder!:

Winbox1.jpg

The upload will start:

Winb2.jpg

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

Using 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

Up4.jpg

  • if you wish, you can check if the file is successfully transferred onto the router (optional):
[[email protected]_v2.9] > file print # NAME TYPE SIZE CREATION-TIME 0 supout.rif .rif file 285942 nov/24/2005 15:21:54 1 dhcp-2.9.8.npk package 138846 nov/29/2005 09:55:42 2 ppp-2.9.8.npk package 328636 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 3 advanced-tools-2.9.... package 142820 nov/29/2005 09:55:42 4 web-proxy-2.9.8.npk package 377837 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 5 wireless-2.9.8.npk package 534052 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 6 routerboard-2.9.8.npk package 192628 nov/29/2005 09:55:45 7 system-2.9.8.npk package 5826498 nov/29/2005 09:55:54
  • and reboot your router for the upgrade process to begin:
[[email protected]_v2.9] > system reboot Reboot, yes? [y/N]: y
  • after the reboot, your router will be up to date, you can check it in this menu:
/system package print
  • if your router did not upgrade correctly, make sure you check the log
/log print without-paging

RouterOS massive auto-upgrade

You can upgrade multiple MikroTik routers within few clicks. Let's have a look on simple network with 3 routers (the same method works on networks with infinite numbers of routers),

Dude1.png

RouterOS auto-upgrade

Sub-menu:

RouterOS version 6 has new auto upgrade option. RouterOS checks amazon servers for information if new version is available and upgrades after upgrade command is executed. You can automate the upgrade process by running a script in the scheduler:

After v6.31:

/system package update check-for-updates once :delay 3s; :if ( [get status] = "New version is available") do={ install }


Older options

Until v6.31:

/system package update check-for-updates :delay 3s; :if ( [get current-version] != [get latest-version]) do={ upgrade }


RouterOS can download software packages from a remote MikroTik router.

  • Make one router as network upgrade central point, that will update MikroTik RouterOS on other routers.
  • Upload necessary RouterOS packages to this router (in the example, mipsbe for RB751U and powerpc for RB1100AHx2).

Dude2.png

  • Add upgrade router (192.168.100.1) information to a router that you want to update (192.168.100.253), required settings IP address/Username/Password

Dude3.png

  • Click on Refresh to see available packages, download newest packages and reboot the router to finalize the upgrade.

Dude5.png

The Dude auto-upgrade

Dude application can help you to upgrade entire RouterOS network with one click per router.

  • Set type RouterOS and correct password for any device on your Dude map, that you want to upgrade automatically,

Dude6.png

  • Upload required RouterOS packages to Dude files,

Dude7.png

  • Upgrade RouterOS version on devices from RouterOS list. Upgrade process is automatic, after click on upgrade (or force upgrade), package will be uploaded and router will be rebooted by the Dude automatically.

Dude8.png

The Dude hierarchical upgrade

For complicated networks, when routers are connected sequentially, the simplest example is 1router-2router-3router connection. You might get an issue, 2router will go to reboot before packages are uploaded to the 3router. The solution is Dude groups, the feature allows to group routers and upgrade all of them by one click!

Dude13.png

  • Select group and click Upgrade (or Force Upgrade),

Dude14.png

License issues

When upgrading from older versions, there could be issues with your license key. Possible scenarios:

  • When upgrading from RouterOS v2.8 or older, the system might complain about expired upgrade time. To override this, use Netinstall to upgrade. Netinstall will ignore old license restriction and will upgrade
  • When upgrading to RouterOS v4 or newer, the system will ask you to update license to a new format. To do this, ensure your Winbox PC (not the router) has a working internet connection without any restrictions to reach www.mikrotik.com and click "update license" in the license menu.

Version numbering

RouterOS versions are numbered sequentially, when a period is used to separate sequences, it does not represent a decimal point, and the sequences do not have positional significance. An identifier of 2.5, for instance, is not "two and a half" or "half way to version three", it is the fifth second-level revision of the second first-level revision. Therefore v5.2 is older than v5.18, which is newer.

RouterOS versions are released in several "release chains": Long-term, Stable and Beta.

  • Beta: Released every few days, only undergoes basic internal testing, should not be used in production
  • Stable: Released every few weeks, includes all tested features and fixes
  • Long term: Released rarely, and includes only the most important fixes, upgrades within one number branch not add new features. When a Stable release has been out for a while and seems to be stable enough, it gets promoted into the Long Term branch, replacing an older release, which is then moved to Archive. This consecutively adds new features.

Suggestions

When using a RouterBOARD device, it is always suggested to upgrade it's RouterBOOT bootloader after RouterOS is upgraded. To do this, issue the command "/system routerboard upgrade"

Firmware mikrotik

Overview

Do not unplug power while router is being upgraded.

MikroTik devices are preinstalled with RouterOS, so installation is usually not needed, except in the case where installing RouterOS on an x86 PC. The upgrade procedure on already installed devices is straight forward.

Version numbering

RouterOS versions are numbered sequentially when a period is used to separate sequences, it does not represent a decimal point, and the sequences do not have positional significance. An identifier of 2.5, for instance, is not "two and a half" or "half way to version three", it is the fifth second-level revision of the second first-level revision. Therefore v5.2 is older than v5.18, which is newer.

RouterOS versions are released in several "release chains": Long-term, Stable and Beta. When upgrading RouterOS, you can choose a release chain from which to install the new packages. 

  • Long term: Released rarely, and includes only the most important fixes, upgrades within one number branch not add new features. When a Stable release has been out for a while and seems to be stable enough, it gets promoted into the Long Term branch, replacing an older release, which is then moved to Archive. This consecutively adds new features.
  • Stable: Released every few weeks, includes all tested features and fixes
  • Testing: Released every few days, only undergoes basic internal testing, should not be used in production

Standard upgrade

The package upgrade feature connects to the MikroTik download servers and checks if there is a new RouterOS version for your device.

After clicking the Upgrade button in QuickSet or in Packages menu upgrade window will open with current Changelog (if newer version exists) and buttons to download and install latest versions.

By clicking "Download & Upgrade", downloads will start and after successful download will reboot to install downloaded packages. Even if custom packages are installed, downloader will take that into account and download all necessary packages.

Manual upgrade

You can upgrade RouterOS in the following ways:

  • Winbox – drag and drop files to the Files menu
  • WebFig - upload files from Files menu
  • FTP - upload files to root directory
  • The Dude – See manual here

RouterOS cannot be upgraded through a serial cable. Only RouterBOOT is upgradeable using this method.

Manual 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:

[[email protected]_v2.9] >file print # NAME TYPE SIZE CREATION-TIME 0 supout.rif .rif file 285942 nov/24/2005 15:21:54 1 dhcp-2.9.8.npk package 138846 nov/29/2005 09:55:42 2 ppp-2.9.8.npk package 328636 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 3 advanced-tools-2.9.... package 142820 nov/29/2005 09:55:42 4 web-proxy-2.9.8.npk package 377837 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 5 wireless-2.9.8.npk package 534052 nov/29/2005 09:55:43 6 routerboard-2.9.8.npk package 192628 nov/29/2005 09:55:45 7 system-2.9.8.npk package 5826498 nov/29/2005 09:55:54

  • reboot your router for the upgrade process to begin:
[[email protected]_v2.9] > system reboot Reboot, yes? [y/N]: y
  • after the reboot, your router will be up to date, you can check it in this menu:
/system package print
  • if your router did not upgrade correctly, make sure you check the log
/log print without-paging

RouterOS mass upgrade

You can upgrade multiple MikroTik routers within few clicks. Let's have a look on simple network with 3 routers (the same method works on networks with infinite numbers of routers),

RouterOS auto-upgrade

Sub-menu:

RouterOS version 6 has new auto upgrade option. RouterOS checks amazon servers for information if new version is available and upgrades after upgrade command is executed. You can automate the upgrade process by running a script in the scheduler:

/system package update check-for-updates once :delay 3s; :if ( [get status] = "New version is available") do={ install }


RouterOS can download software packages from a remote MikroTik router.

  • Make one router as a network upgrade central point, that will update MikroTik RouterOS on other routers.
  • Upload necessary RouterOS packages to this router (in the example, mipsbe for RB751U and PowerPC for RB1100AHx2).
  • Add upgrade router (192.168.100.1) information to a router that you want to update (192.168.100.253), required settings IP address/Username/Password
  • Click on refresh to see available packages, download the newest packages and reboot the router to finalize the upgrade.

The Dude auto-upgrade

Dude application can help you to upgrade the entire RouterOS network with one click per router.

  • Set type RouterOS and correct password for any device on your Dude map, that you want to upgrade automatically,
  • Upload required RouterOS packages to Dude files
  • Upgrade RouterOS version on devices from RouterOS list. Upgrade process is automatic, after a click on upgrade (or force upgrade), the package will be uploaded and the router will be rebooted by the Dude automatically.

The Dude hierarchical upgrade

For complicated networks, when routers are connected sequentially, the simplest example is 1router-2router-3router connection. You might get an issue, 2router will go to reboot before packages are uploaded to the 3router. The solution is Dude groups, the feature allows to group routers and upgrade all of them by one click!

  • Select group and click Upgrade (or Force Upgrade),

License issues

When upgrading from older versions, there could be issues with your license key. Possible scenarios:

  • When upgrading from RouterOS v2.8 or older, the system might complain about expired upgrade time. To override this, use Netinstall to upgrade. Netinstall will ignore old license restriction and will upgrade
  • When upgrading to RouterOS v4 or newer, the system will ask you to update license to a new format. To do this, ensure your Winbox PC (not the router) has a working internet connection without any restrictions to reach www.mikrotik.com and click "update license" in the license menu.

Suggestions

When using a RouterBOARD device, it is always suggested to upgrade it's RouterBOOT bootloader after RouterOS is upgraded. To do this, issue the command "/system routerboard upgrade"

NetInstall is the most commonly used installation tool. It runs on Windows machines or Linux with Wine ( superuser permissions are required).

You can download NetInstall on the www.mikrotik.com download section.

NetInstall is also used to re-install RouterOS in cases where the previous install failed, became damaged or access passwords were lost.

Your device must support booting from ethernet, and there must be a direct ethernet link from the NetInstall computer to the target device. All RouterBOARDs support PXE network booting, it must be either enabled inside RouterOS "routerboard" menu if RouterOS is operable or in the bootloader settings. For this you will need a serial cable.
Note: For RouterBOARD devices with no serial port, and no RouterOS access, the reset button can also start PXE booting mode. See your RouterBOARD manual PDF for details.

NetInstall can also directly install RouterOS on a disk (USB/CF/IDE/SATA) that is connected to the Netinstall Windows machine. After installation just move the disk to the Router machine and boot from it.

User Interface

The following options are available in the NetInstall window:

  • Routers/Drives - list of PC drives and PXE booted routers. Select from the list on which drive or router you want to install RouterOS.
  • Make floppy - used to create a bootable 1.44" floppy disk for PCs that don't have Etherboot support.
  • Net booting - used to enable PXE booting over the network.
  • Install/Cancel - after selecting the router and selecting the RouterOS packages below, use this to start install.
  • SoftID - the SoftID that was generated on the router. Use this to purchase your key.
  • Key / Browse - apply the purchased key here, or leave blank to install a 24h trial.
  • Get key - get the key from your mikrotik.com account directly.
  • Flashfig - launch Flashfig - the mass config utility which works on brand new devices.
  • Keep old configuration - keeps the configuration that was on the router, just reinstalls software (no reset).
  • IP address / Netmask - enter an IP address and netmask in CIDR notation to preconfigure in the router.
  • Gateway - default gateway to preconfigure in the router.
  • Baud rate - default serial port baud-rate to preconfigure in the router.
  • Configure script File - a file that contains RouterOS CLI commands that directly configure the router (e.g. commands produced by export command). Used to apply default configuration.


Attention! Do not try to install RouterOS on your system drive. Action will format your hard drive and wipe out your existing OS.

RouterOS supports a lot of different features and since every installation requires a specific set of features supported it is possible to add or remove certain groups of features using the package system. As a result user is able to control what features are available and the size of the installation. Packages are provided only by MikroTik and no 3rd parties are allowed to make them.
