[Newegg] Ubiquiti ERLite-3-US Edgemax EdgeRouter - $109.99

This is a pretty good price for a ERLite-3. I bought mine on the last sale and im using it to bypass my Bell Hub and its been working flawlessly. I use one port for a VPN and one port for my home connected to the Netgear 8 port switch that was on sale.

Interesting! What's the difference with the cheaper EdgeRouter X ?

Hardware Offloading I believe. The cheaper EdgeRouterX does not have it, however it does have a faster CPU. They both can max out a gigabit connection so depends on your use case.

Apparently some features now have hardware offloading on the ERX. NAT and related stuff can now be offloaded. DPI is still software only on the ERX vs hardware offloaded on the ERL3.

I found this out here.

Apparently the ERX has offloading, that would explain why some people complain that they don't get gigabit speeds with the ERX. It comes with the option disabled by default.

I would 100% go with the ER-X here over this one.

ER-X has hardware offloading here, and it has 1 PoE port.

Bridge your modem, buy the AC-LITE here, power it with PoE, and you've got a great setup. I have the AC-PRO on my main floor, and the AC-LITE powered via PoE on my 2nd floor. Not a dead zone in the house.

I use a USG and it has worked perfect for the last 3ish years. It ‘technically’ has less functions than an EdgeRouter but it has been enough for the most part in my home environment. Coupled with a AC-Pro I have zero issues with my internet and wifi.

how do you bypass the bell hub? if I turned off DHCP on it, it screws up FIBE TV and lose connections consistently.

The ER-L will do gigabit in both directions simultaneously but the ER-X can probably only do a combined gigabit up and down. Most of us don't have internet connections that fast so it's no big deal.

its a rated 3Gbps router vs the 1 Gbp edge-x. Its the cheapest solution for 3gbps they offer

You have to use VLAN. VLAN35 for Internet and VLAN36 for TV I think. I dont have FibeTV so I cant remember the exact VLAN.

I guess that's for FTTH only

Yes.

FYI the ERX is also available on neweggcanada eBay, which has 15% off today. It's tempting.

What Model do you have from Bell, if you have HH2000/3000 you should be able to just do PPPoE pass-through, just put the credentials into your router and it will grab an external IP. Leave FibeTV Connected directly to HH2000/3000.
