My home UniFi setup...

by on ‎04-19-2017 01:38 PM

Hi guys! I’m new to the community and new to Ubiquiti’s networking gear. I have switched to the EdgeMAX and UniFi platforms for my home network. I currently use the EdgeRouter Lite as my firewall/border router connected to fiber on eth0. DPI is enabled on the EdgeRouter Lite with hardware offloading. I use eth2 on the EdgeRouter for the DMZ network (172.16.x.x/24). The DMZ network is uplinked from an EdgeSwitch which has my servers connected (Have to run the cable from my office to the EdgeRouter still). I have a UniFi USG that connects to eth1 of the EdgeRouter on a 10.x.x.x/30 from the WAN port. The USG has the NAT rules removed and is routing my private networks to the EdgeRouter. DPI and firewall rules are in-place with hardware offloading on the USG. On the LAN side of the USG, I have a UniFi switch with five VLAN’s (192.168.x.x/24 networks), UniFi Cloud Key, and one UniFi AP AC Pro. I love this setup and the Ubiquiti gear.My UniFi home setupMy UniFi home setup

Personally, I would point the switch downwards, otherwise dust/bugs will gravity their way into the ethernet ports of the switch.

How did you disable NAT on the USG? I'd love to use an ER-X in front of a USG for QoS

I see a rack mount device at the bottom, mounted horizontally. How did you do that?

Or on its side which solves the gravity dust & makes it easy to get to the ports.
