I’ve also just purchased an edgerouter 4 on the back of your review Michael ( you should get commission). I’ve got it connected to a 16 port switch, with a netgear r8000, a ac aircube, and another netgear ap set us as APs (covers the entire house and the cave out the back)..

Very happy. My question is whether I should sign out for the controller? Any advantage for what is just a home network?

The controller is only supported with UniFi networking gear, not with the Edgerouter.

@stocksp You just need to buy some UniFi nanoHD's and you're sorted. Those consumer grade routers will be holding you back now. Then you can use the controller (with your access points).

@Kironz you have not read the first post fully. But, it is not what you're wanting. The IP you added to your Edgerouter is for my controller and not for yours and so your access points are currently showing up in my controller as pending adoption.

 

Follow the official help guides: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/219051528-UniFi-Setting-Up-UniFi-for-Beginners

So I butchered dnsmasq and DHCP no longer works yell. My internet was dropping out and I thought it may have been some dnsmasq rules that I had set up so blew the set up away and was still having issues(I'm thinking it was just internet drop outs from Vodafone). So on uninstalling dnsmasq, I can no longer get an IP because DHCP is no longer running. I've ordered a com port cable so I can get back into my USG, factory reset doesn't seem to do much undecided. Also thought it was bricked as it wouldn't factory reset, I found that I had to hold the reset button in while powering the device on, once it was powered on it wouldn't factory reset.

 

Thought I'd post this so if someone was dumb enough to do the same they would think twice smile.

 

Odd thing though, AP and Switch are fine but no longer appear in the Controller.

Important!

 

I've been forced to create a new server to host the UniFi controller. The new server has better specifications and I am now paying for this out of my own pocket. But don't worry, I'm still supporting this.

 

Due to this, there are some changes - both with the server IP address and also to the domain. There are a number of sites that have been informing to the controller using the controller IP address. If possible, please inform to http://gzunifi.murfy.nz:8080/inform going forward. Doing this by DNS means if I am to move servers your devices will inform to the new server first time. I'll email the affected sites shortly.

 

If you are using DHCP Option 43 to inform (or the UniFi field in the Edgerouters DHCP server field) the new server IP is 45.63.28.169. This is now also available over IPv6 at 2401:c080:1800:4087:5400:1ff:fede:8340 also.

 

The new URL, as above, is https://gzunifi.murfy.nz:8443

 

You can support this project by either Subscribing to Geekzone (Here) or using my Vultr referral URL which also gives you $50 to try out their platform: https://www.vultr.com/?ref=7820086-4F 

 

As people have asked, I do also have a PayPal donation button if you want to support me directly on my website: https://murfy.nz/

 

Thanks for your support!
