I have a USG-3P that I would like to replace with a pfSense router. The reasons I’m replacing my USG is because I have upgraded my internet to 3gb/s and I know the USG won’t handle this. I also want to setup VPN (OpenVPN or WireGuard) with family and friends. As a side note, I will reuse the USG at my cottage with an AP .
My current network topology is:
USG-3P connect down to USG-Flex-XG that connects down to US-8-150W . I have 3 AP’s connected to the US-8-150W.
I have my main network & WiFi, Guest Vlan & WiFi, Work Vlan & WiFi configured in UniFi. I have configured the new pfSense router with the same Vlans, IP reservations and DHCP scopes. I have tested the pfSense router with my pc and that is work properly.
Now I’m at the point that I need to remove the USG from my local Unifi controller so I can connect the pfSense router to the UniFi switches & AP’s. What is the best way to do this? Is it as simple as Forgetting the USG from the UniFi controller and just swapping routers? I expect it’s not.
Thank you for you help.
