Powering

The device accepts power in the following ways:

  • Ethernet port accepts passive PoE 10-30 V DC ⎓.
  • Direct-input power jack (5.5 mm outside and 2 mm inside, female, pin positive plug) accepts 10-30 V DC⎓.

The power consumption under maximum load can reach 24 W.
Connecting to a PoE Adapter:

  1. Connect the Ethernet cable from the device to the PoE+DATA port of the PoE adapter;
  2. Connect an Ethernet cable from your local network (LAN) to the PoE adapter;
  3. Connect the power cord to the adapter, and then plug the power cord into a power outlet.

Booting process

The device supports booting RouterOS (for complete routing and switching configuration) or SwOS (for only using as a switch). By default, the device will boot RouterOS, but you can reboot into the other operating system in the following ways:

  • From SwOS: In the System menu, click the "Boot RouterOS" button on the bottom of the page.
  • From RouterOS: in the System, RouterBOARD menu, click "Settings" and there select "Boot OS".

It is also possible to select the OS and configure other boot settings via the serial console menu.

Reset button

The RouterBOOT reset button has the following functions. Press the button and apply the power, then:

  • Release the button when green LED starts flashing, to reset RouterOS configuration to defaults.
  • Release the button when the LED turns solid green to clear all configuration and defaults.
  • Release the button after LED is no longer lit (~20 seconds) to cause a device to look for Netinstall servers (required for reinstalling RouterOS over the network).

Regardless of the above option used, the system will load the backup RouterBOOT loader if the button is pressed before power is applied to the device. Useful for RouterBOOT debugging and recovery.

Use Ethernet 1 port when connecting to Netinstall.

Operating system support

The device supports dual boot SwOS software version 2.9 and RouterOS v6. The specific factory-installed version number is indicated in the RouterOS menu /system resource. Other operating systems have not been tested.
