Upcoming Maintenance Alert:
The UBNT Community will be upgraded at 5pm MDT on April 25th. During this time the community forums will be set to read-only status.
So, I'm curious, why did you not go for a full UniFi or a full EdgeMax solution instead of mix-and-match?
Probably because the USG is a joke when you're serious about networking.
@FTZ Well sad, I felt the same thing after going full boat with USG Pro 4. Ran it for a few and got rid of it.
Firewall is a joke.
Good question, thanks for asking
The one factor to consider is the timing of my purchases, this was purchased over the last 2 years.
I brought the USG Pro 4 - big mistake - no firewall configuration at the time so returned immediately and replaced it with the ER8 which was cheaper anyway.
I also needed layer 3 switch, brought the UniFi Switch being mislead, like many others, into thinking it was layer 3. Then I realised it wasn't but still needed a POE switch so i kept it. So ended up i buying the EdgeSwitch 48 because it has layer 3 routing + 10gb SFP+ and it doesn't break the bank.
However, I REALLY like the UniFi Dashboard and i already had 3 aps, so for access switches (which don't need layer3 routing) such as the two 8 ports I just opted for UniFi because they are much easier to manage.
While I would like to have the single pane manage that UniFi boasts, for me right now the USG does not fulfill my requirements, and i really need internal routing faster than 1gb. Just as FTZ said "USG is a joke when you're serious about networking" So for now i have to deal with a mixed infrastructure.
@cardins2u & @FTZ Well true, but the switching gear, how does that tie into that?
@miguemely Ive updated the post to try and explain.
This... isn't for your home is it?
Can I ask where you're running your macOS VM?
