This article describes supported add-on peripherals for RouterBOARD hardware devices.

Cellular modems

RouterOS v7 supported cellular modems:

  • MikroTik modems
  • 3rd party modems supported by device class/type:
    • MBIM class USB interface 
    • USB-CDC class USB interface
    • RNDIS type USB interface
  • 3rd party modem with added support, see modem table below

Please note:

  • not all modems are listed in the supported modem table, some may work because modem manufacturers re-use the same hardware IDs and vice versa
  • customized, localized and locked units may have compatibility issues
  • 3rd party modem may require a modem configuration adjustment before it can be used with RouterOS
  • mini-PCIe modems with USB3.0 interface installed in mini-PCIe PCIe/USB2.0 enabled slot USB speed must be limited to USB2.0 speed or mini-PCIe shared PCIe/USB3.0 pins isolated. See the picture below table
