Couple warning notes though. These are not as simple to configure as most home "routers". A lot of the options in the web GUI simply don't work, or don't expose enough settings to work. To do anything beyond the basics you need to get comfortable with the CLI interface, which isn't too bad but will seem daunting if you don't have a networking background. Also, as of firmware 220.127.116.11, anything IPsec is completely broken. OpenVPN works fine and is good enough for my uses, though it's much slower than IPsec.
I am not sure where it's at, but supposedly this unit supports DNSmasq. It appears to be a feature they are working on and you can enable it in the CLI (which is where you manually type in or copy and paste a script) This would have been great to know several hours ago but really its poorly implented.
I own a sign shop and the software that controls the $30,000 dollar printer is on a Debian Linux machine. I like to keep my business using 1 OS (win7Pro) but I have no choice in this instance. To make a long story short, to stabilize a network share using SMB4k GUI Linux wants to use DNSmasq along with NetBios if it's not enabled, you will not be able to connect. While linux/SMB4K is partially (probably all) to blame, I can't figure out why something as heavily utilized as DNSmasq is missing this option as a default GUI feature in what appears to be a powerful router. This option should be enabled from the GUI not from a long winded easily forgotten command line interface. I get why command line is around and still needed, but seriously no easy to activate DNSmasq? That is just weak.
For anyone curious, you can type DNSmasq and SMB4k and you can see on occasion how someone who does not have DNSmasq gets sucked into a long troubleshooting session and it turns out to be a router with super cheap DNS. (like the ER-X 1.9.7 firmware) The workaround is a command line in Linux with a static IP to the windows box. (I hate static IPs as much as I hate Linux, just a problem waiting to come around in the future)
For a good small business network:
Pure DHCP with an easy to view list of leases and host names and macs addresses.
DNSmasq a must.
Manually settable DNS entries that are tied to a MAC mac addresses.
---Actually, I had a long list of DNS features but really just better small business DNS all the way around. DNS is a real weak point right now. As your business grows good straight to the point DNS is a must.
I might return this unit and get a SG-1000 microFirewall with pfsense. I want to like the ER-X but I do not want a headache with more surprises.
When I got the router I immediately upgraded the firmware to v18.104.22.168 (latest at the time) and reset config to default via web interface before I configured it for WAN+2LAN setup and then enabled smartqueue. Has worked fine since.
The ER-X is a 880 Mhz dual core. Setup wizards will get you up and running with no frills and ipv4 only.
CLI is required for DNS forwarding (OpenDNS), UPnP2/NAT-PMP, IPv6. The wizards are lacking for these. Maybe later.
Comcast will accept a /60 prefix request so you can run IPv6 on subnets/VLANs.
But the best surprise is the QoS (fq_codel). No adjustments like Tomato. Bittorrent at 85% line speed and getting a "A" in BufferBloat in DSL Report's speed test.
