Simple upgrade steps
1. Download new version
To quickly and easily download bugfix RouterOS run the followig command on a terminal in WinBox.
/tool fetch url="https://downloads.ctwug.za.net/mikrotik/routeros/6.40.8/routeros-mipsbe-6.40.8.npk"
The above will only work if DNS on the router is set to

If it's not a
mipsbe device you need to change the file name. You can see them here:

Reboot the router and it should upgrade to the new RouterOS you downloaded.
