Hi, Also when you have it working again check your cpu usage. The on board memory is very small and when you run several "options" on the 133c it runs out of memory and then start "swopping" it is then when the cpu starts running at 100% and the waiting game begins.

Re: RouterOS v6.6 released

My Personal opinion is that Ver 6 is a beta version.
To get an answer on the successful implementation is a little far fetch.
In short if you need a working system with some bugs 5.26 is good if you need to get involved with the beta testing of version 6.X then version 6.X is the one you should use.
