I want to increase my general knowledge with regards to Mikrotik and RouterOS.

I'm planning on doing a couple of online courses and some YouTube videos as guides.

I'm using a Wisp(Herotel/IGen) for my internet at home and would prefer not to touch the setup unnecessary at this stage.

Can I use a second Mikrotik and connect a Desktop Huawei B535 Pro LTE router with a MTN Sim it via LAN cable?

Will that give me similar experience as if I'm connecting to a PPoE connection from another ISP and do various setups on the Mikrotik? So the B535 is only there to provide the internet connection via ethernet. I do not want to use the wireless functions, etc. Obviously it is a wireless LTE router, so it will connect to the tower via the sim card. .

The reason I'm asking this, is that I stil need to buy a 2nd Mikrotik router. Thinking of buying one of those R450 models. It is not very strong, but it does have wireless unlike my current R760iGS and like I said, it is only for training purposes.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Yes you can, you can even connect the wisp to the routerboard as well as the B535 at the same time. You can also run the Mikrotik OS on a virtual PC for 24 hours.
