EdgeRouter X, 5-port
Top Customer Reviews
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.
The only remotely technical thing you will need to do is manually set your IP address so you can access the firmware to run the wizard.
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
