    Ubiquiti Networks ERLite-3 reviews

    ERLite-3 EdgeMax EdgeRouter Lite 3-Port Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router but not for the beginner.... This is a great router. It is not a router for the beginner. Definitely need to do research on configuring to fit your application. There is not much in the way of documentation included with the device in the box but I was able to find what I needed at various websites to configure to my specific application. Pros: Small form and configurable to multiple configurations. Cons: Not enough info included for setup. You can find many videos and tutorials online to get you through setup for your application. Router also cam with an outdated Firmware that did not include full wizard support until after firmware upgrade. Definitely not for the beginner or those with out a basic understanding of networking protocols.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, good value I had no trouble setting up this router using DHCP to connect to my internet provider, and one LAN port for my home network. You can use the second LAN port for a DMZ (isolated) network, I use it for testing and setting up computer and network equipment. The web based interface is well thought out, and has all the functionality you need for a SOHO or home network. You can get a USB to RJ45 adapter cable and connect to the console port to get a command line session. If you really mess everything up there is a reset button to set it all back to factory settings. The router works well, and is a good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid router with a semi-steep learning curve I use this router with a related AP to replace a previous consumer grade wifi router which I was using. This is a relatively raw router. Out of the box, you cannot just plug this in like a regular wireless router from netgear, linksys, etc and have it work. It has to be configured. EVERYTHING has to be configured. Out of the box, this is not configured to work even in a basic sense. When received, my unit was running a several year old version of the firmware. 1.2. I had some serious issues updating the firmware requiring a reboot and immediate update of each firmware sequentially to get to the most recent version. I took one star off for this. There should never be issues updating firmware on an out of the box unconfigured device. The latest version of the firmware has some configuration wizards which you can run to configure a basic SOHO implementation that is easy enough to use. Any custom DHCP scopes or port forwarding will require reading and searching of the support forums. There is a lot of third party support for this ERL, but it is not for the faint of heart. Currently, my ERL is configured to connect to the WAN on Eth0 an unmanaged 8 port gigabit network switch on Eth1 and a segregated guest network on Eth2. Aside from my early issues with firmware upgrade, configuration complexity, and a one time issue with a hang of the router itself, I have not had any issues with this router and it has been solid for several weeks. I have all my network gear including a WAP connected to a UPS to keep the wireless internet up in case of a house power outage. I would not recommend this to people who are not computer savvy, or who are looking for a simple unbox and plug in setup. This will require time and research even for a simple implementation. I would recommend this to people who are technical and interested in learning networking or who, in the end, would like a setup that is efficient and will run without intervention once set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic small business routers We manage a number of small business networks. These routers give us fantastic capabilities for the price point. Many small businesses can't justify the price of Cisco hardware, so these are a great fit based on the price point and the capabilities. You do need to be fairly advanced in your understanding of routers and IP networking - these are not a home user plug-n-play router. But they are absolutely fantastic at what they do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the Home Router you have been looking for After many years of having to reset the internet weekly due to dropped connections, I finally saw the light and purchased this excellent SOHO router. Combined with an Ubuquiti Networks 802.11ac access point, my home wireless situation just works. I don't have to fiddle with it. The router sits silently on the shelf, blinking away while over my head, the blue ring of the access point glows reassuringly. For less than $ total, I have a business grade wireless system for my home. My wife and kids are happy. All is right with the world.Get rid of your flaky consumer grade router and buy a real network appliance.Some things to be aware of:1. You need to get on the Ubiquiti Networks Forum for good setup guides. Setup is not intuitive.2. Unit ships with old firmware. First chore needs to be flashing to latest firmware. See forums.3. Order an RJ45 to USB console cable so you can access the unit while you provision its three gigabit ports. (look for cisco compatible cable)4. Be sure to have a quality 5-10 port gigabit switch for your wired devices. I am using a Netgear 8 port unmanaged giga switch which works great.ALternate solutions:1. Look at the Ubiquiti USG appliance as an alternate. The Unifi console is very friendly and will get you setup with minimum fuss.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 3 Port Router $ can buy Under $ USD for a three port router that can process 1 Million packets per second!Amazing feature set, wizards and online help in a very supportive forum. I had to update my router shortly after unboxing, the process took all of 10 min - super easy.If you've got dual wan connections, need some additional routing functionality or have an off the wall use case look no further. Great piece of kit, highly recommended.Fast Shipping via B&H, email updates to boot. You won't regret the purchase on B&H, best price I could find online!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice router but steep learning curve I bought this to use as an edge router with very basic configuration. It's well-built and inexpensive - a good combination. But if you're used to Cisco or HP or any other router OS, you'll be in for a steep learning curve. It's basically a Linux box with a software-defined router program running on it. It's great if you're a Linux hobbyist looking for a new toy to tinker with. However, once past the learning curve, it's a solid product with a nice browser-based interface. Documentation is the community which is spotty at best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router I started using the Ubiquiti products this year and glad I made the switch. This router is working at my house with no issues. I have yet to max this thing out on 150/150 internet connection. Allows vlans, vpns, and many other great options in more expensive products. The web interface is pretty easy to figure being an IT person.
