Purchased an EdgeRouter X in anticipation of my ISP FINALLY running a cable line to my house. I also purchased a Unifi AP Lite. I set the ERX up then set up the AP. Everything appeared to work fine and it worked for about a week with no trouble.

This morning, I noticed that the link lights were no longer lit on the ERX and I could not access the GUI. A reset was done per instructions and no luck. I plugged my PC into the eth0 port and got a link light and my PC attempted to connect but never would. The router also seems to be power cycling about once a minute.

Is the unit bricked or is there something I can try?

Second question, I've read that IoT devices should be kept separate from the main network. Whats the best way to go about this or is it even necessary? I only have a garage door opener, a couple google homes and a ring doorbell.

Thanks for the help.

Any lightning over night? If so, that's my guess.

None that I am aware of, but not to say it didn't happen. If it did it would have came thru the electric lines, as my ISP wont be running cable until Monday or so.

Is your new router and computer protected with a UPS device? I meant your electrical lines. What your ISP will run will be well protected.

I would take (send) the router back for a refund.

I ended up returning the ER-x to Amazon for a replacement and everything is now working great.

New issue that I'm trying to look into-

As stated I have the ER-x and an Unifi AP Lite. All equipment is gigabit capable. The link between my router and my AP lite confirms a 1000Mbit connection.

I have an iperf server set up and I have been testing the various LAN ports in my home basically to make sure they will pass gig speeds(already passed simple continuity tests as I installed them). All wired connections pass 950mbit/s which is great.

Using iperf I am able to get 408mbit/s on my iphone however my laptop will only get around 180-200 mbit/s on the same 5ghz network. Any ideas on what causes this? I have played around with channels and power levels as recommended by other websites.

My ISP is 400 down so I am trying to at least get that. Computer is a CF-54 toughbook(Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265)

Try it on Ethernet. If it is in the upper range then the Network Adapter is the problem. See if there's a driver update for it.

It pulls 950(gig) over ethernet cable.

So, there's your answer. Go ahead and try what I said.

I think this is close as I am gonna get. 278Mbps over the air isn't terrible I suppose. I'm approx 10 ft from the AP.
