That's really good that you get 920Mbps with Orcon, much better than my Orcon connection. The latency is different on different games I think. The point is you find the one suits you well. Just enjoy the game with beer. :)

Hi first post so hopefully in the right place

 

 

 

I've just purchased an Edgerouter X SFP and set it up using the tutorial from Mr Snotty, great guide when you aren't sure of what to do.

 

Router is working but it doesn't have any ipv6 connection - i'm on Vodafone FibreX and have followed the vlan 10 setup

 

I haven't run the command - set protocols static interface-route6 ::/0 next-hop-interface pppoe0, as i don't know if its needed.

 

 

 

show dns forwarding nameserver shows this

 

 

 

 

Network connection details shows this

 

 

 

 

ipv6 test shows this

 

 

 

 

any help on getting ipv6 working would be great appreciated

 

 

 

Thanks

As mentalinc said or manually release & renew the IP address lease on your device. I just went through this with 2degrees and an ER4 and that fixed it for me.

@junkpilenz

 

Looking at your screenshot above eth0.10 is your WAN interface. If so, you need a route:

 

set protocols static interface-route6 ::/0 next-hop-interface eth0.10

@michaelmurfy, thanks that's what i needed, all working correctly now

 

 

 

out of interest, I set the edgerouter X SFP up for a relative - looks to be a good little router for the price.

 

I'm thinking of changing out my standard Vodafone router HG659 as my son is starting to do gaming.

 

How much better is the ER-4 compared to the ER-X, and is it worth the extra $ ?

 

I also need to replace a 10/100 switch and upgrade to a 1Gb switch, what would be a good one to use for gaming?

 

 

 

thanks for the help

@junkpilenz I run an Edgerouter 4 and it is a great router - especially for the price. If you're on Gigabit I would recommend it over the Edgerouter X.

 

Switch wise - don't get suckered into switches that promote "gaming" - this $39 TP-Link Gigabit Switch will work fine. Depending on how much you're wanting to spend the Edgeswitch line is pretty good but honestly not required. Grab a UniFi NanoHD (Link) if you want great WiFi to go with it.

 

This configuration will provide a great experience even with gaming and future-proofs you for years to come also.

 

Edit: Or wait for the Dream Machine to come into stock - this looks to be a great all-around home router: https://gowifi.co.nz/manageda/udm.html

@michaelmurfy, thanks for the info, I'll spend extra $ then on a good router

 

I am already running a unifi AP Pro as my wireless access point, I got it about 3-4 years ago - is worth changing to the UniFi NanoHD?

 

 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Today I purchased and setup an Edgerouter ER-X and everything is setup using the guide and I'm getting slow speeds via speedtest. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do to improve things?

 

Connection: Spark Gigabit UFB

 

Edgerouter ER-X Firmware version: EdgeRouter X v2.0.8

 

As below this was performed on an ubuntu machine connected via gigabit ethernet to the edgerouter ER-X through a Netgear switch

This is supported by offloading being disabled:

 

ubnt@ubnt:~$ show ubnt offload                                                  
IPSec offload module: not loaded

  dpi       : disabled                                                          
    version       : 1.480

 

Running the commands below from @michaelmurfy 's post

 

For the Edgerouter X:

 

configure
set system offload hwnat enable
set system offload ipsec enable
commit
save

 

This gives the below highlighted error

 

ubnt@ubnt# commit

          This issue is to be fixed in future release.                         

 

After rebooting I have the following offload configuration;

 

ubnt@ubnt:~$ show ubnt offload                                                  
IPSec offload module: loaded                                                    
                                                                                
HWNAT offload module: loaded                                                    
                                                                                
Traffic Analysis    :                                                           
  export    : disabled                                                          
  dpi       : disabled                                                          
    version       : 1.480                                                      

 

 

 

And thus a speedtest run with that configuring still gives slow speeds.

Fixed your post formatting.

 

Are you just using speedtest-cli to test or are you also testing via a browser? Also attempt to remove speedtest-cli and go via the official Speedtest CLI app: https://www.speedtest.net/apps/cli

 

There are also some exceptions to offloading - if you've enabled QoS on the router this will fully disable offloading as an example: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006567467-EdgeRouter-Hardware-Offloading

 

From my parents connection (Edgerouter X, VDSL, no offloading enabled):

 

:~$ speedtest

 

   Speedtest by Ookla

 

     Server: Nova Energy - AUCKLAND (id = 16805)
        ISP: Voyager Internet
    Latency:    25.09 ms   (0.48 ms jitter)
   Download:   100.18 Mbps (data used: 114.6 MB)

Thanks.

 

 

 

I've just removed the speedtest-cli client and installed the official client. Running the official client I have the following output here - still with the slow speeds.

 

I haven't turned QOS on and looking in the GUI it doesn't appear to be on (I didn't setup any policies)

 

 

 

Cheers
