    Competency Evaluation - Advice on diving into RouterOS/MikroTik from Housewife Networking

    Very interested in this as well. I'm considering a Mikrotik 10G switch, but have read so many negative things regarding the interface that I can't seem to pull the trigger. :)

    AOC-S3008L-L8E in non Supermicro MB

    New Fujitsu D3348-B23 Motherboard (LGA2011-3), $200 OBO ($140 accepted), Ebay

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    After following this thread for a while I broke down and have a 7250-24P arriving shortly. I've built my dongle and am ready to update the firmware once it arrives. I see discussion on L2 vs. L3 firmware - I plan to use this as a L2 switch initially and when I get up to speed on the switch may...
