Hello I'm beginner and need some info.
I have a RouterOS machine with two WAN and one LAN interfaces. I want to provide fail tolerance to my LAN clients. How can I do this?
Thank you in advance.

If you are trying to do an easy failover then all you need to specify are 2 default gateways. The second with a higher distance than the first.

/ip route
add check-gateway=ping distance=1 dst-address= gateway=WAN1IPaddress
add check-gateway=ping distance=10 dst-address= gateway=WAN2IPaddress
