There's no such thing.

You can, however, use RouterOS in a virtual machine. The demo license still runs for 24 hours for free.
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

I always use VMWARE workstation, and have successfully tested almost every scenario in the LAB, before deploying it on the production environment :shock: .

Yeah, VMware workstation is the solution. You can use the teams function and set up large complex networks down to controlling the speed on individual network segments. A RouterOS VM is small and doesn't need much ram so you can easily do a large number of machines. You can toss a desktop VM in the mix too and test what a user would see.
