I got this product because I trust the Ubiquiti brand. I have a customer with a small office that was using a residential router. Of course these residential routers don't provide any protections or support advanced features and infrastructure so my first rule was to replace their current router with this. This was the first time I had used the ER series. I'm very impressed. It has a lot of bang for the $49 price tag. Very easy to set up, and has access to both a web interface as well as a CLI. CLI is supported over web, SSH, or Telnet, although by default Telnet is disabled. Each port can be manually configured for each function and supports 2WAN environments. It's a great product. Only thing I have problems with is the IPv6 setup was not straight forward. I still don't have it working as expected.
