Hi all, I need to configure a tool that enable keep my network working even some links are dropped. I have routed netowork with 6 main routers that are connected in a circle. There is /28 network between each two routers in order. 1-2 2-3 3-4 4-5 5-6 6-1
I suppose that OSPF is the tool.
I have read the mikrotik manual but when I configure OSFP network nothing happen, only one new route is in the routing table, it is red with flag "DI O".

Can anyone help me?

I use winbox

add interface
add networks of each router

so if ip address of router is 192.168.0.1 add network 192.168.0.0/24

Only add networks your router can directly see
