[Newegg] Ubiquiti ERLite-3 Edgemax EdgeRouter - $119.99

I've been waiting for it to come down below $120.
Nice wired router for those of us who likes a more hands on approach and control. Winking Face

Great box, tons of features. The OS is a fork of Vyatta Core (if anyone recognizes that) that is developed by Ubiquiti and there is a very active support forum.

From experience (I also have one of these boxes), the updates to the UI continue to add features and it is relatively user friendly, but quickly requires knowledge for more advanced features. One of my favourite additions is ad blocking for the whole home network (even ads in free iOS and Android apps) without having to install something on every system. The separately available Ubiquity UniFi WiFi Access Point made a huge difference (I have 42 neighbouring hotspots) and I will never go back to the all in one consumer router crap again. Just as an FYI, the box looks a little different now (new hardware iteration) and old reviews complain about the onboard storage (it's actually a little USB drive) which they appear to have fixed. I would buy again in a heart beat.

The ER-X has 5 ports, and one of them is a POE port. As far as I know, it offers the same functionality.
The ER-X has issues with maximizing big bandwidth connections (think gig internet, and) due to slightly different hardware design, there are a few other limitations that slip my mind as well. (Happy with my ER-Lite).

Does anyone know where I can buy a Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO for cheap to pair with this router?

Edit:
The cheapest place where I found the Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO for sale is Newegg.ca for a 5-pack.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... 0013-00037

I need 4 other people in to do a group buy with me. The final price will be $176.40 per Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO
$830 + $10 Shipping + $42 GST Only = $882
$882 / 5 = $176.40 per Ubiquiti UAP-AC-PRO

Free pickup in the Ottawa/Gatineau area.
If you do not live in the Ottawa/Gatineau area, the estimated shipping cost would be $15 to $20. I can give you an exact quote when the time comes.

If you are interested in the group buy, please PM me directly instead of clogging up

I also created a Group Buy thread if you want to reply in that thread:

So are you guys saying this is a much better router than lets say the TP Link Archer 7 or the Bell Hub 2000 or the other expensive ones? I would buy this in a heart beat if it is.

Got one of these to get my feet wet with enterprise-grade networking. Great router. Even after one of the ports died due to some power surge, I was able to reconfigure it to use only the other ports using various guides knline (although it was a bit tedious).

You guys are forgetting the wireless AP which 99% of people need here.

Same question... My RT-N66U is locking up all the time. Been ramping up to test out pFsense and just got in a duel port NIC to throw in an old Dell Workstation. Long term plan was if it works well order up a low power box to use.. For wireless I was looking at the Ubiquiti AP's.. Will use some old routers for now..

This seems like an easier solution though not that I am afraid to toy with pFsense....

Hence why this is not for everyone. ;)
my Router is in the basement with the Modem. I use an AP for wireless devices on the main floor. Better coverage than having just one Wireless router in the basement.

I'm sure I'm not the only one with a set-up like this.

I've been waiting for their home router to be released in Canada https://www.amplifi.com/. I believe it still runs EdgeOS, but hides some of the funcationality and just has a prettier UI... plus Wifi w/ 2 extenders.

For anyone looking for an AP, a quick google returned this http://fleetnetwork.ca/products/uap?utm ... Ao3v8P8HAQ.

EDIT: Oops. That AP is only 2.4Ghz. Nevermind

I think the Unifi APs are great but the routers are overrated. They work well together software wise but the performance of these units aren't much better than a typical commercial router.

pFsense on some decent hardware will perform better especially if you want to use features like OpenVPN. That said, these are still great products.

I have mine in the basement as well. It's hooked up to a gigabit switch and I have my server, drobo, raspberry pi and computer hooked up via ethernet. I ran one long ethernet cable to the top floor and put the ubiquiti AC AP and it's working wonders.

My trick was to wait for an eBay coupon to come along, then buy from the NewEgg store. I got my AC-LITE for $100 taxes-in. Bear in mind, the eBay codes sent out are sometimes USD.
