Each has a learning curve — I find pfSense pretty easy these days after a few months of tinkering at the beginning. I run a Dell server at home with PfSense and it's complete Overkill. It is pretty popular and one of the best ones out there. Is there any advantage of the Edgerouter over other devices if I wanted to use Ubiquiti's WiFi access points too - or do they still sit as completely separate devices with no integration? There's only five of us here but between WoW, Netflix and my remote telecommute we can keep the 40 mbit pipe pretty busy. We got more into the Ubiquiti Edge Routers in the past year for clients. Things are still getting worse.
If I can recycle some old equipment I'll do that, but might well end up getting one of these for noise and power consumption reasons. They rely heavily on the open source world, and as such they're fairly peer-review-able. But most importantly it will make your life much easier in terms of maintenance. My problem is having an idea of the budget we will have to operate on. I tend to agree with battleop.
Plenty to crush a 100meg connection. I like what I've seen about Ubiquiti's gear, but their support has never been rated as being very good. He even gave me a link to how to reset it. This is a community subreddit so lets try and keep the discourse polite. Thanks for all your time and help. Again, Cisco is my main band so I'd have to look up how I got the Edgerouter but sounds like that would be too late to help.
Works completely fine with minimal upkeep on my part or theirs required. Thanks for the support anyway, I appreciate it. Any opinions on which would work better for this or if there are any other options I should be looking at. What do the logs say? Simply plug in your devices or add a larger network switch with additional ports. Just got out of the hot tub so this is my last post for the night. I usually access the server on the dmz subnet from my lan subnet at home.
Lots of threads on the ubiquiti forum about it. This rep said that the problem must lie somewhere outside the ubiquiti router. Depending on your browser, you may see different warning screens. I do only some very light touch filtering for our public wifi, but there are still 5 people in the last week who are not infected with viruses because of the filtering I have in place. If you feel that too many issues don't get attention or priority, or feel that issues are ignored, or similar then you should add a reply to that thread.
Your going to want a smart switch. You can split tunnel to still have internet access without sending it through the Edgerouter. The point to take away from that page would be this statement I think. Ubiquity is a great wireless solution but that is about all. I felt like they were splitting things apart controller, routing, firewall, etc that are really supposed to be together in most small business routers. I love it, and continue to deploy it in many places. Box can be built pretty cheap.
Which I also gave up on Mikrotik. Honestly I thought this was neat as hell. Three gigabit interfaces for a hundred dollars. On the other hand, I like the idea of the Edgerouter as a low power device, even though it is more of a router than a firewall? I just need to be able to read my emails when I get up in the morning without rebooting the router. If you don't like the developers, that's a completely different topic than quality of the software itself. The other idea would be to find a higher powered thin client that has a slot for another pci card or just built-in wifi if that's all you need lan and wifi.
See our for past announcements. This whole pfsensse endeavor has been more involved than I had anticipated, unfortunately. Getting pfSense up and running just acting as a basic firewall and gateway should take less than 5 minutes out of the box. I was having a problem where my firewall was booting up faster than my cable modem and wouldn't retry obtaining an address from the modem. Just trying to minimize the hardware costs of deploying routers to users with gigabit Internet where I can run pfSense. I don't miss commercial routers. It is understandable because it is not really a firewall so expecting it to be is unfair.
