I have mine with a Unifi Ap-AC Lite for a little bit over a year now and it's rock solid.

Really good price for a great router. Highly recommended for anyone with internet connections around 150Mbps and less. Pair it with a quality access point and you have a solid combo.

Stick with 1.10.10 firmware if you get one though. Haven't tried the v2 firmware but reviews haven't been as positive.

Thanks. Almost bought this yesterday with Staples $25 code, but was too late.

No brainer. I'll turn my existing routers into access points then slowly build out to more Ubiquiti products

Why would it be best for only 150mbps and less?

I have mine running gigabit and it’s fine. Enable hwnat and disable QOS and there are no issues.

That's if you want to take advantage of the features like QoS which really helps with buffer bloat. Gigabit will work on the ER-X but not simultaneously up and down even with hardware offloading. Otherwise, it'll still handle most home connections without a problem

Define what is "fine"?

I currently have RT-AC66U that I use as router only (no WiFi). I have 1Gb internet connection and I can clearly see it degrading behind the router on my network. Like from 500-700 Mbps directly on the modem to ~150 Mbps behind the router. I am looking for the ways to improve it but I also need my new router to be able to run a reverse proxy (which I see is available with UBIQUITI ER-X Router).

Just curious - I purchased a RT-AC68U from Staples, but I'm wondering if this + an Ubiquiti UAP-AC-LITE would be a better combo?

I'm running 300mb/s Rogers internet.

Any recommendation for gigabit?
