I am in the process of building a new network and evaluating which router, switch, and access points I am going to go with. I have tons of experience with Unifi Ap’s and I love the unified experience they offer, but they have dropped the ball on the capability of their USG routers. However, their Edgerouter line offers the features and control I need, but the GUI sucks, and I would need to rely on CLI to make the router do what I need.
I don’t know CLI, so I am hoping to find a router that can do what I need via GUI.
Features I need are…
Internet Link speed 600mbps down / 100mbps up.
Max of maybe 30 users.
Extensive Gateway Bandwidth Management.
Deep Packet Inspection.
It would be nice if the router could be powered via POE from the switch.
If need be, I can learn CLI. But there may be solution out there that does will not rely on me configuring the unit via CLI.
Is there a router that you would recommend that can do what I need via GUI?
