Ubiquiti Networks ER-X Reviews

WOW

I was dealing with network issues since August last year. I used different routers, even wireless, but they all hang or stop working and the solution was always reboot, reboot, reboot until I replaced them with this little beast. It's been a full 6 months and I even forgot that I had a router installed on my network. One thing is for sure, this is not for the faint of heart, absolutely not for beginners, but there is A LOT of information available on the internet.

Nice router not for beginners!

This is a nice unit and works great. It’s not for a beginner though unless you are comfortable browsing the internet for articles. I set this up with 2 additional vlans. The one reason I knocked off a star was because the POE option. It takes 24v input which is not standards based. I got a ubiquity PRO actress point which uses 48v (that is standards based), so I need another injector. Not the end of the world but it is annoying. Some access points will run on 24v so check the documentation for whatever you are looking for.

Works Great!

Looks old. Not many ugly boxes like this anymore. But works like a champ. More reliable and easier to expand than most wifi-built-in routers. Keep in mind you need to BYO-AP.

It’s great

It can be tricky to set up for first time users, but having the control you get over your equipment is valuable.

Great quality

More security control

I bought this router as my main firewall device. The user interface is easy to learn and has lots of settings. I like having this dedicated router and putting another wireless router behind it. The commercial routers tend to simplify the security settings, which gives you less control.

Pleasantly suprised

It's not all the time that you feel as though you got more than you paid for. I bought two of these devices to create a VPN between my aunt's house and myself, they arrived to my transhipper on time and I got them a week later. I pay extra for size/weight so was happy that B&H was efficient with their packaging. The devices themselves are slightly larger than a pack of cards and feel rock solid in your hand. I was warned that these routers aren't the most newbie friendly devices and that I should expect to get my hands dirty on the CLI. However, the GUI ended up being good enough for everything that I needed to do so far. There are MANY videos on the Internet detailing how to get these up and running, how to tweak them and how to setup various VPN configurations so even though they aren't plug and play, they are still very easy to set up. I've actually had a different model on my wishlist for years but never pulled the trigger because I didn't have an actual use for it. When it was time to buy, I found that B&H had it for a lower price than other places. This is a great product at a great price and I intend to purchase two more in the near future.

Perfect for Multi-WAN

By Brian

Bought it to enable multi-wan setup for my home for times when my ISP goes down. Works perfectly. I have a laptop with hotspot sharing out as a failover WAN. This sits between ISP and my mesh whole house wifi. Was simple to setup via wizard and works great. Be sure to update the OS as your first step to install and config!

The ports are part of a switch on the router. It is a fully configurable switch however so you can isolate each port either by VLAN or setting them to be independent ports.

question

Which wireless access point would you recommend to pair this with? Thank you
Asked by: Moshe d.
Any access point will work. If you want to stay in the Ubiquiti family, the latest generation UAP-AC devices have a good price-to-feature/performance ratio. Depending on your environment and client devices, a certain set of AP's might be better for you... If you have a lot of 3x3 MIMO devices and need the higher bandwidth, the UAP-AC-Pro might be best; for a low-density of clients, the UAP-AC-LR might be better, because of it's improved reception due to the fractal antenna; otherwise, the UAP-AC-Lite would be a cost-effective choice.
