LOST LICENSE AFTER UPGRADE

Mon Jan 02, 2012 6:38 pm

I upgraded my Level 6 Routeros running on an Intel x86 system from version 3.22 to version 5.9 via winbox and it lost its key. I have tried downgrading to 3.28 and it has refused. What do I do to restore my license?

when i lost my licence, this is what i did:

Sign up for mikrotik.com, after registration you will receive by e-mail password to login.
Click (top left in the Account) - Select - Request key - Import key from MK - System - License - Import key
If all goes OK, go back to Account - Click on - work with keys - select virtual folder (for me bgslevi-marsl) - displays your keys (and here comes the part that I just noticed by chance), selecte key (the tiny letters), then again WinBox - System - License - (click) - Paste key. MK will reboot and everything goes ...

Thanks Normis, I also wrote Mikrotik and I have got a reply. I am following it up.

Thanks lordiceman, I alerady have an account but I cant find any "request key" on my account page. I can only find "request key from another account" at the bottom left corner of my account page.

yup, just go there and enter your software id or the key file

and btw i lost my key the way you did, upgrading from 3.x to 5.x, after that i rather upgraded from 3.x to 4.17 to 5.11 on the rest of routerboards and it went well

Thanks a million. When I was almost about to loose patience with mikrotik support for replacement key and decided to try out this option they sent me a replacement key. Its perfect.

@all and Mikrotik,

Am having the same problem with my RouterOS. My routeros network was not browsing. So i removed the access points and connected to a separate switch and it browsed. so, it was confirmed that the routeros was the problem. i formatted it with my routeros software before which i backed up the settings. at the end of it i restored the setting. the problem now is how do i get back my license. am told as long as you didn't format it with a non-mikrotik software you can always get back your license.
i need help.

thanks at all.
