Once in the downloads section of MikroTik website you will need to choose the version of MikroTik device that you are using, be it a 400, 600, 800 series etc. You may then proceed to download the Combined Package.


Once the file downloaded, we can proceed to copy it to the MikroTik Router.  Strart by logging into the router (Make sure you log into the IP address and not the MAC address), and to the Files Interface.
