We make use of a script that will automatically re-route traffic when connections are slow.The solution offers very good multi-routing.We're very happy with what we are getting out of the solution in general. The features are good. They're comparable to other brands such as Cisco and HP.The best part about MikroTik Routers is the price.The flexible IP firewall and IP network address translation make it very easy to give access to internal services.We have found this solution is quite robust and there are a lot of features in a small device.The most valuable feature is controlling the bandwidth.The cost and versatility are the solution's most valuable features.

Cons
The only problem is that at the moment it's an Extreme product and Extreme is not really pushing it. They have to make up for weak innovation and I'm not sure if they want to do that.

The manageability of the web-based UI needs to be improved.The solution needs to improve its security firewalls and mirror that of, for example, Sophos, or FortiGate.The solution's website isn't that good. When I go to it, I can't find what I'm looking for. However, if I go to a third party's website, I can easily find the information.The biggest thing that needs improvement is the support.I would like to see a cluster feature added, where multiple devices can be configured and managed as one. One is in a standby state while the other is active, and if one fails then the other takes over.In the Israeli market, we are in need of Hebrew support.The user interface allows you to do a lot of things, but it is not user-friendly.They could improve their product if they set, for instance, a controller for wireless LAN. That would allow them to really have something more than an access point.
