I had to decide between the Ubiquiti Security Gateway (USG), the Edgerouter X (ERX) and the Edgerouter Lite (ERL). I wanted to like the USG because of the Unifi controller, but I let myself be influenced by some less than stellar reviews on YouTube and a preconception (possibly faulty) that it wouldn't give me the best performance given the number of devices (both wired and wireless) in my home. That brought it down to the ERX and the ERL After considering both, I felt the ERL was the best choice. (Wish I had both to A/B test them. The ERX is certainly less expensive.)
When I got the ERL hooked up and connected to the new Ubiquiti Edgemax switch, my speed was EXCELLENT! I've never had it so good. Since I am not a networking pro, I had to depend on the wizards to get the basic configuration installed. After a bit of study on the Ubiquiti website and some YouTube videos, I gave it a go. All of that was enough preparation to make the task painless enough to be successful. All my wired computers are now getting internet speed around 240 Mbps (even though Comcast only promised 200). So far, the installation, setup and performance have been exactly what I hoped for. Thanks Ubiquiti and the support system that has grown up around you.
There is a little, non-documented issue with the router although.
The throughput of 1 Gbps is available only with the two independent VLANs option.
When the two outputs are bonded, the NAT throughput drops to about 300Mbps.
This router will make a great addition to any mesh WiFi system.
* You want QoS with app targeting, boom done.
* BGP, OSPF, IPSec, OpenVPN done.
* Near gigabit performance, done.
* Easy to use GUI... sort of done?
* Easy to setup, kinda. (It does have wizards)
* No this does not have ANY wifi. (Get a UAP, they rock too)
* No you cannot hook up 4 wired devices to it, its a router, not a switch. (If you need a router switch combo, get a ER-X, but it won't route nearly as fast.
This is what those in the field would call and "Enthusiast Router". Feature set of $250+ firewall at the price of a nice Linksys.
If you want even more for the same price, roll your own VyOS (what the EdgeRouter OS is based on) or PFsense box (Based off FreeBSD w/ GUI).
This is not for everyone, but for those looking for a small challenge and rock solid stability, look no further.
It is very nice to have two of these behind my (unnecessary overkill) ISP router and be confident the latest game download isn’t probing its way into my email or other machines.
The one negative is no auto-update, so you need to remember to check for security patches and update the firmware. That needs to be changed but for now it’s on you.
1) The GUI (Graphical User Interface), only has limited functionality. If you use IPv6 like me you will have to become familiar with their
Command Line Interface (CLI). Using the open source Vyatta Guide generally helps with configuring the EdgeOS.
2) You may need to possess technical skills to alleviate issues that have yet to have been addressed by Ubiquiti.
It can be used as a load balancer for two different internet connections (Dual Wan and 1 LAN setup). It can be setup with one WAN and two LANS. VLANs can be setup so that you can segment traffic such as for a LAB, corporate and guest networks. Pair it with a managed switch of your choice and Unifi Access Points to allow for the VLAN feature to extend to include wireless clients with your wired clients. The EdgeOS is based off an older version of Debian so you may be required to build packages yourself for the latest security update for OpenVPN and other packages until the Edgemax team releases a firmware update. This is fine if you are an advanced user. If you are not, you will need to hire someone to maintain the router if there is a lag between Ubiquiti fixing a problem and the urgency in which you require a security issue to be addressed.
Instead of buying a Linksys WRT3200ACM or other router in that price range, consider buying the Edgerouter Lite coupled with the UNIFI UAP AC. This will give you more bang for your buck especially since the Linksys Smart WIFI is too simplistic and using Open source solutions on the router is not ready for primetime. Google WIFI issues on DD-WRT or OpenWRT for the Linksys router. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way.
It does run a bit hot to the tough as it does not come with a fan and it is in a metal container (I am currently investigating whether or not this is due to the model being defective). To temporarily mitigate this, you can have a small fan facing the unit until you are ready to send off for warranty (keep a backup router).
I do wish that the processor had more speed and there was more memory though. However, it is the light version so even though theoretically it has a lot of features and can be customized with added features, the processor may limit usability of such features (i.e. BGP, Multiple OpenVPN instances, IDS and etc.).
