Best way to upgrade bios

Hello

What is the best way to upgrade the bios in a routerboard?

I can see where to download the bios but not how to upgrade it.

The manual says you can download some remote ethernet loader thing but I can't find that.

Thanks for the Info

I'm in Aussie, we are also only allowed to go to 30

I do find with 5.8 (not allowed 5.3 outside) you can get away with less signal.

I have a 25km p2p with -82 and get solid link.

Hello,

I am using .23 and cm9's both ends on P2MP.

My Radio will stay connected with as low as with -90 (if they have to)

I think with CM9 this RouterOS is very good.

I do agree still more work to be done, but for me 99.9 is fine..

10kms easy

We do 8kms with 26dbi's & cm9 radio down to 10
Locked in at 24, I'm sure with radio up to 15 or 16 would get 54.
