News: MikroTik RouterOS 6.16/6.17 Released

MikroTik have announced the availability of RouterOS v6.16.

This has now been upgraded to 6.17 to fix a bug in the CCR1009 switch chip on ether ports 1-4

This is the first release to include support for 802.11ac, using the QCA9880/9882 rev2 (-BR4A) wireless chipsets.

Another new feature is the ability to easily configure a routerboard as an L2TP-Server with IPSec, allowing simple roadwarrior setups, see the wiki for more details: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Interface/L2TP#L2TP.2FIpSec_setup
