Preface: I know this isn’t about Vera, but I frequent this forum more than any other and I’m sure that the people here are knowledgeable enough in this area as well
So, I have a Cisco WRVS4400n that has been complete crap (it was a great deal when I got it, but apparently, from my reading, they are just crap). Every 6 months or so I have to completely redo it and that is a hassle.
So, I am looking for a new router. I have been eyeing the Ubiquiti edgerouter series. I am stuck between the edgerouter lite or the edgerouter 8 port (8-port would go in my rack). I currently keep my router on the wall because it used to handle my Wifi. At one point the wifi was acting all crappy so I swapped to POE Access points (I have been testing 1 Engenius and 1 Ubuiquiti Long range). I’m not opposed to putting in a router with Wifi, but the location is not central in the house.
I have also been looking at the Asus 87U AC router, but it will NOT fit in my current router’s location. I will attach an image of the wall location where the new router would go (if it has wifi in it). I do have 3 42" Leviton Enclosures, but those are metal (and bad for RF). I could potentially put in one of their new RF transparent ones, but that would require more money and cost than I think is worth it.
Low heat (my equipment closet is a sweat box as it is, even with venting)
vlan support (Do to the fact that I work with Hippa information, I like to keep my work computer on a separate vlan than the rest of the house/guest networks)
Reliable! Reliable! Reliable!
Oh, and did I mention Reliable?
So that’s it… anyone have any suggestions? Cost is not necessarily a limiting factor, as long as it is super reliable.
