4 out of 5 eggs Powerful features and high performance 03/03/2016

This review is from: Ubiquiti ERLite-3 Edgemax EdgeRouter Lite-3 3x Gigabit LAN Ports

Pros: Finally, a real router in the house! Was used to replace a 2nd gen 802.11n Airport Extreme base station as the main router. Hooked up to an Arris 820a Docsis 3.0 cable modem with 200Mbit service. Connections are much more consistent and reliable now. Latency in online games is down and video streaming is much more responsive. No issues registering on my ISP's network or any other tomfoolery with compatibility with any other devices on my network. Traffic anaylsis is a plus, as are the multitude of available features. The latest Wizards from Ubiquiti make getting this up and running for web browsing a relatively smooth experience. Responsible for connecting 20+ devices to the Internet and it does so without issue. UPnP functions well, and also has Port Forwarding and NAT capabilities that will allow you to do whatever it is you might need to access wise. Setup is accessible via ethernet and a web browser via HTTPS, so no funky controller software needed or dependency on other connection types. Most configuration changes DO NOT require a reboot, which is awesome!

At the $100 price point you're going to be hard pressed to find something better. This is my first Ubiquiti product and so far I'm quite happy with it.

Cons: Requires an immediate firmware update to become the router you want it to be. QoS features are lacking in the GUI. Setup will be very confusing for anybody coming from a 'normal' home or small office style router. Available documentation is out of date and you'll either A) Need to know how to configure this before installing it, or B) Have another means of accessing the web as you are installing it.

Other Thoughts: There is a larger, PoE version of this router. If you're installing one of these alongside Ubiquiti's UniFi AP's, you'll want to buy that one instead or pair this with one of their PoE switches. This has enough horsepower to handle 1000Mbps ISP connections, but comes with a learning curve. Enabling this to also act as a switch via bridging the LAN side ethernet ports does eat up some CPU, so if you're using this to create an unsegmented LAN and need both ports for it, expect slightly less performance at peak. Reboot times are LONG, so if it appears to be non-functional after a reset or reboot, just wait another couple of minutes and it will come back up.
