Having previously explored a full UTM, pfSense, DD-WRT and Tomato, I’m revisiting EdgeOS.
Went with the Edgerouter-X, even though it performs a bit below the Edgerouter-Lite, as the Lite seems to be plagued by faulty internals.
Ran into an issue with it corrupting downloads that was supposed to be fixed, but I was still experiencing it on a firmware beyond 1.8.5. Turning off acceleration is apparently the “workaround”.
I like the idea of running two subnets–one for regular devices on the network, and a seperate subnet of DMZ’d devices (gaming consoles).
This seems informative about how to accomplish that goal.
Here’s information on an optional QoS called FireQoS, (install help) and a visualization called netdata.
