Ubiquiti Networks introduces the EdgeRouter X, part of the EdgeMAX platform. The EdgeRouter X combines carrier-class reliability with excellent price-to-performance value in an ultra-compact form factor. Two models of the EdgeRouter X are available. The standard model, the ER-X, can be powered by an external power adapter or 24V passive PoE input. A passive PoE passthrough option1 is available to support a single airMAX device2.

The one big issue I have with the ER X is with performance in my situation. I recently moved to Cox GigaBlast, with brings fiber to your home and offers 1 Gbps up and down. The service includes a Netgear R6300 router/switch with nice Wifi capability. Though I need a couple of switch ports near where the optical modem was placed, I don’t need another Wifi access point there, so I bought the ER X to place there so that I could relocate the Netgear unit where the WiFi would be beneficial.
Before installing the Edge Router, I ran some speed tests using the Netgear router as my gateway interface. The results were pretty impressive: 890 Mbps down & 920 Mbps up (a giant leap from my old DSL connection). I thought the ER X might do a little better given the accolades from the pro reviewers. But alas, this was not the case. With the ER X configured with switched LAN ports, the test results measured downloads 40% lower and uploads 75% lower that the R6300! While this is still impressive for a residential connection, it’s significantly slower than with Netgear R6300. I suspected that the lower speed was due to implementation of the switch in ER X software, but testing with a non-switched LAN port gave only slightly better download speeds and upload speeds that were twice as fast, but still about half the rate of the R6300. So for now, I’m reverting to the Netgear, but with the WiFi disabled.
I was curious how the ER X would compare with the ER Lite, and was able to borrow one for some brief testing. The ER Lite can be configured with two LAN ports, which can be either independent (i.e., in different subnets), or bridged (effectively providing a 2 port switch on the same subnet). In the non-bridged mode the ER Lite was even faster than the Netgear R6300, but in bridged mode it yielded the worst results of all the test configurations. The attached table shows a summary of the test results.
The tests were done using the Ookla speedtest.net site with many repeats all using the same server, from a computer connected to one of the router’s ports. All results with each of configurations were very close (within 2%), except for the ER X non-switched download test results which were within 10%.
So, in summary the EdgeRouter X is a great router for most applications today, but it apparently can’t process data at gigabit data rates.
For those of you that want a quick primer on setting this up as a simple SOHO nat router, here's what you do.
1. Go to the ubiquity site and download new firmware (I have 1.7)
2. Connect eth0 on the router to your computer
3. configure your computer interface to 192.168.1.10 and network to 192.168.1.0 router to 192.168.1.1
4. open browser to 192.168.1.1
5. update firmware from the file you downloaded
6. restart router
7. set user passwords, time zone
8. set switch mode on eth0, eth1, eth2, eth4 switch0 (I did this on the CLI - not sure if there is a menu item)
9. set eth3 to dhcp address
10.. set address on switch0 to 192.168.1.0/24
11. reconnect computer to eth1 and restart browser connection
12. turn on dhcp server on switch0 - set pool address range
13. add SOURCE nat rule with eth0 masquerading and translate on switch0 (no other rules needed)
14 turn on DNS forwarding on switch0
15. optional: set firewall rules
16 optional: turn on POE passthru on eth4 (I have it on to drive the Ubiquity AP with 24V)
17. connect cable modem/dsl to eth3, clients use eth0, eth1, eth2 and eth4
Don't get me wrong, this is a rock solid router at least as good as any other manufacturer's lineup. However the EdgeOS software this box runs on is half-baked. For example, the software version on the router doesn't work. As in I could not connect to the internet. I had to install the latest firmware to get it to work. I'm not even sure how that's possible. Like, how are you supposed to update your firmware on an internet router that can't connect to the internet? Fortunately I had a different router that I was able to use long enough to update this one. And yes, I contacted their help support and their solution to my inability to get connected was installing the new firmware.
The support staff at Ubiquiti is awesome. Because the software is so buggy I've had to contact them on multiple occasions with my Unify AP and they always amaze me. They're the reason I buy this stuff. I wish I could say the software was as reliable.
