I got this to make the most out of our slower internet (100down and 10 up) and I am not disappointed. Went from an ASUS AC-68U to this and after enabling Smart Queue we can watch Netflix, download a game off Steam (without manually needing to slow the download speed) and have two people play at the same time without much ping increase. Basic setup wizard makes it headache free. I am not using UNMS at the moment so no idea how well it runs but the UI is intermediate but not overly complicated.

While I been using different versions of these for the last 5 yrs, this new one seems better. Like it a lot.

Fear not the dev-ops learning curve that comes with architecting an advanced home network, it’s all worth it when you see a +1,000 Mbps speedtest =]

Best giga router. Works well in many different situations. Easily updatable and solid performance.

I bought this for home use. I suppose I would be a router enthusiast but for the performance and features I wanted, this was the best price I found. I was able to set up a 802.3ad bond to my cable modem and enable Ipv6 prefix delegation without any issues. This is not a good router choice if you’re a networking novice. If you can make a router yourself with iptables and dnsmasq, you will have no issue using this. Be aware of the internal port configuration and the bandwidth limitations that brings. Depending on your needs, like mine, this might not matter beyond what ports you pick. The last 4 ports are directly connected to the router IC but the previous 8 go through a switch fabric before connecting to the router IC. The support forums are quite helpful. My only real annoyance so far is its CLI is somewhat limited in configuring more advanced firewall/iptables rules.

Short version: It’s well built, powerful, and can maintain gigabit download speeds across the network. Out of the box wizard offers easy setup, traffic analysis with hardware offload does not impact bandwidth speeds, and the CLI offers infinite configuration options. After a recent gigabit fiber upgrade, my rather long in the tooth mini PC running pfSense couldn’t utilize the full bandwidth across it’s internal to external ethernet bus. This may be a little overkill for a home network, but I wanted to be able to utilize the switch ports without degrading overall performance. Had some initial issues with interface configuration, the wizard created default subnets that were not what I wanted. This lead to some issues with ARP resolution after changing them. A reboot resolved that. The web UI is pretty slick, it’s a major upgrade from both pfSense and residential consumer level products. The power is in the CLI configuration, and there is a learning curve for anyone coming from a consumer level product. I was network specialist 20 years ago, and had a lot of experience with Cisco routers, so some of it was familiar. There are still issues I have yet to resolve, for instance mDNS resolution of the router’s name without re-broadcasting mDNS over my WAN interface. The built-in traffic analysis is handy, and with the hardware-offload does not impact bandwith across the switch or routed subnets. 100% recommend this router.
