My Edgerouter's X home network

These is my home network.

A year ago I heard about ubiquiti networks and I started learning about it. First of all, say that it´s for me the best networking brand of the market nowadays. I have an EdgeRouter X that has been working for a year with no isssues. It´s fully programmable and really powerful. 

My Network:

Internet comes via fiber (speed: 100/100mbps) to an ONT provided by my ISP.

Then, an ethernet cable comes into eth0 of my Edgerouter.

Eth0 is configured with PPPOE to connect to my ISP.

My lan is divided into 3 VLANs:

 VLAN 30- for my network devices, wireless or cable. -

 VLAN 20- for a Vesta CP server that I have hosting some webpages. -

 VLAN 10- for a separate network unique for guest clients. -


I also have the router hosting a PPTP VPN server for my personal use when I'm outside.

I have a raspberry PI 3B+ that is hosting UNMS with docker and also a restreaming server used for a proyect in which I'm now inmersed.

In my LAN, I also have a Synology NAS that is hosting some backups, files and so.

I have 3 dlink gigabit switches around my house to provide high speed internet to my pc's, smart tv's and access points.

All these networking gear is mounted in a little closet.

To protect these devices from cuts on electricity, I bought an UPS that can stay with reserve mode for at least 20 minutes.

I'm waiting for new unifi ap's and some other ubiquiti gear. I wish they come soon.


These all I wanted to say, Regards to all the viewers.

That 80mm fan you have on the RPI is NOT enough.

The PI will over heat and burn down the whole place! 

You must put a 200mm fan on it!



You could also throw a couple of USB external HDDs onto that PI and use SAMBA for some file shareing as well..

Hi @demonmaestro .

Thanks for your reccommendation. But for my raspberry is enough with that 80mm fan. It only reaches temperatures of 31/35 degrees celsius. Also a 200 mm fan will be really big for the raspberry case.

@tendnetworks I was trying to be funny about it. But anyways I think the 80mm fan is still OverKill for the RPI.

Keep up the awesome work!

@demonmaestro I'm all in favor of water cooling the pi. Ruin's the flavor, but guaranteed to prevent burning.


@tendnetworks In all seriousness, that's a neat tech cubby you've got there!

Love it! The blue light really does cause the internet to move faster.
