This Product does not work for my application.
Spent over 2hrs trying to configure the unit and the website has 0 FAQ on how to set up a stand alone DHCP server without the internet or another DHCP server to piggy back off of.

Small, powerful, at a great price. I had been doing computer-based, and VM routers for years (pfSense, Linux, etc.) but wanted a standalone router that wouldn't be affected by computer reboots. This one delivers. For best throughput, you need to go into the command line interface and enable hardware offload. With that done, it'll get very close to 1Gbps, It will also do PPTP IPSec client VPN compatible with IOS and the Windows built-in client, if you know the command line interface commands. Has enough RAM that you never need to reboot it.
As mentioned above, you need to join the secret command line club to get the best throughput and to add IPSec VPN. By default, it links eth1-4 as a switch, and you need to use the switch address for dnat rules (that can trip people up)
Highly recommended, this little unit rocks.

Multi capabilities on pretty much on all ports... multi WAN on any combination of ports! The OS, interface, is fantastic. I have Cisco switch I was planning on deploying, but this EdgeRouter X kicks its butt. Even the boot time is about 10x faster than the Cisco (about 3 mins)... router ... about 30-45 seconds.
I wish they made this router with more on-board ports... 16 would be great.
A very capable and multi functional router for about 1/3 of the price of other routers.

EdgeOS Form factor User interface Traffic identification services Raw capability Total and complete control offered
Number of ports (not that there aren't other Ubiquiti EdgeRouters with more ports) Hard reset process kinda wacky and inconsistent In-box documentation invalidated after upgrading to EdgeOS v1.10.0 - especially the parts about hard reset and getting an initial administrative connection to the unit. Just a note, you can't use 'root' as an administrative user for the WebUI. It appears to be a reserved account.
Got this router as a temp stand-in while procurement of a $7,500 router finished. If it weren't for a single capability of the $7.5K router, I would run the whole operation from this little box. The OOBE and WebUI are slick and sensible. Initial configuration was a breeze. It just plain works, and works for very very long periods of time without intervention. CLI access lets you wield phenomenal cosmic power. I am going to be sad when I have to put the other router in its place.
