Why MT people not give us final working routing ?

Just my opinion on this: But don't be too hard with them - the price for the licenses is very low in my opinion, and if you need more support, MikroTik offers a support contract. Apart from that I think it's not appropriate to say that there's not much support - there are lots of people on this for...

Make sure you check your duplex settings on Cisco switch on the ports and match them to the nics. We use the same and if you do auto neg. or have wrong duplex things will work but as you scale the bw you will start seeing a lot of slowdown due to CRC errors on the switch.

For that your provider needs to be properly bgpd so he has failover and lesser issues as well. That is what I wanted to say BGP feature DOES NOT work well at all even if upstreme has failed and its "connecting" the bgp failover does not work . It should however work as soon as the upstreme flaps.......
