CRS317 SwOS boots with no connectivity

Sat Apr 18, 2020 6:21 pm


I have a CRS317 booting into SwOS v2.10p and I cannot ping the device with the IP address given through the serial connection. It says its at but it is not responding when connecting through the single gigabit ethernet port. It looks like a known bug according to this thread, but I'm new to Mikrotik devices and don't understand how the author in that post was able to get into the SwOS interface and change settings. All I get are these options through the serial interface:

I - board info
r - reset configuration
b - restore configuration
x - reboot
g - upgrade software

Short of sending the unit back and hoping for one without buggy firmware, is there anything else I can do to try and get this working?

once u boot into the switchOS

you will only be able to login via web interface on IP or

so u have to setup a static ip on your pc NIC interface on the same range in order to be able to connect.

then u can upgrade it to switchOS 2.11 via the web interface
