I've been meaning to move to something more substantial than consumer routers, primarily for personal learning. I can't say that what I have used has not been sufficient for my individual needs. So moving to Ubiquiti products is really just a choice for education. Here's what I have coming: EdgeRouter 4 (ER-4) UniFi Switch 8 60W UAP-AC-PRO-E And this little console to USB cable. Right off the bat, I realize that the EdgeRouter has its own interface and that the UniFi switch and wireless access point must be managed by an application or their management device, which I do not plan to purchase. My reasoning for going with the ER-4 is that the USG (UniFi Security Gateway) doesn't seem spec'd to handle 1Gbit class internet, something that I will likely be looking toward in the near future. I will still be able to set up VLANs on the ER-4 and add those to the switch and AP. I'd be looking to VLAN off stuff like media devices, IoT (thermostat, vacuum), work laptop that lives entirely on a VPN, and regular computing devices. I'd also like to be able to run VPN services from the router, both for internal clients and for public reachback to my LAN, and I'd like to host services locally as well. Questions: is there anything I should be concerned about here in terms of compatibility or setup, and potentially a cheaper but similarly robust, flexible, and intuitive alternative that I missed?
