You could use OpenWRT on MikroTik hardware so you have an additional 
variant of Linux mutant if the native firmware is somehow broken.

If you choose your hardware without this provision in mind there is a 
big chance that some vulnerability is found forcing you to send your 
hardware to garbage bin without any way to recover.

Also, I am somehow paranoid. And either I see the source of MicroTik 
firmware or I don't trust it. There are lots of trapdoors found in most 
kinds of equipment.

Of course, you may disregard all this if you have a service contract 
whereby the vendor is obliged to arrive in 24 hours and repair your 
equipment in next 24 hours and is contractually obliged to cover all 
losses caused by exfiltration of your data.
