Routerboard BIOS firmware level

The RouterOS software upgrades always include Routerboard BIOS updates. To check if you need to update the BIOS, us the following command:

/system routerboard print

The output will look something like this:

[admin@mikrotik] > system routerboard print 
       routerboard: yes
             model: "1100"
     serial-number: "XXXXXXXXXXXX"
  current-firmware: "2.29"
  upgrade-firmware: "2.30"

If the upgrade-firmware is newer than the current-firmware version, use the following command to upgrade the BIOS firmware:

/system routerboard upgrade

Once you have issued this command and pressed yes, the BIOS firmware is upgraded. You will need to reboot the router after the update.
