@mAYH3M You sure you're not using any features which disable offloading? Done a reboot after activating offloading? See this: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006567467-EdgeRouter-Hardware-Offloading 


Your results seem as if the router is not using offloading.



Upgrading to 2.0.1 did the trick.


https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeRouter/ER-X-SFP-Offloading-issues/m-p/2727914#M246164


 


Lesson learnt, stay away from Ubiquity gear because of all of the firmware issues.



Does that mean you upgraded from 2.0.0 to 2.0.1?  If so, both of those are beta versions, so problems can be expected.

I was on “stable” 1.10.9 version and 2.0.0 is stable AFAIK but 2.0.1 surely is beta.

2.0.1 is technically Stable. It is however a different branch (based on Debian 9) vs the 1.9.x releases which are based off Debian 7. They're still providing both firmware images currently (Ubiquiti normally do LTS releases) but I have not had any issues with 2.0.1 so far. All the devices I manage have been upgraded to 2.0.1 from the 1.9.x versions of the firmware the other day:

 

 

Good to see the offloading issues sorted. Strange this happened, have you updated the bootloader also by running "add system boot-image" in the terminal and rebooting? I believe this has fixes for quite a few things at hardware level.

PPPoE crashed at midnight yesterday after running stable for 10-11 hrs.Just sent the router back to the retailer as 1.10.x was the recommended branch for MTK devices and 2.x has know issues.

 

Might have a look at the GWN7000 when they are back in stock at PBTech.

I honestly recommend the Edgerouter X or the Edgerouter Lite over the GWN7000 for Gigabit UFB. Like I say, I have not seen any problems with them so perhaps you were running an outdated bootloader (this can cause some issues). There was an advisory a few releases back to update the bootloader as part of the update especially on the Edgerouter X.

Your destination can just be 8.8.8.8/32, and yes the gateway (or next hop), can just be a random IP address that your router knows how to reach (ie something in your LAN subnet is a logical choice).

 

If however, you want to actually redirect google DNS queries so they actually get resolved by your router you will need some NAT rules.

 

 

To force all DNS queries via the ER4 use these commands:

 

configure
set service nat rule 4000 description 'Policy DNAT: Force LAN DNS Requests to Router'
set service nat rule 4000 destination address '!192.168.0.1'
set service nat rule 4000 destination port 53
set service nat rule 4000 inbound-interface eth1
set service nat rule 4000 inside-address address 192.168.0.1
set service nat rule 4000 log disable
set service nat rule 4000 protocol tcp_udp
set service nat rule 4000 type destination
commit
save

 

192.168.0.1 is what I use, set this to your router IP address (10.1.1.1 ?)
Set your router DNS settings to what ever want everyone to use, in my Case OpenDNS kiddie friendly DNS
Even if you set you computer to use a DNS manually it won't get passed the above it will be forced via Router DNS settings

 

if you want to make an exception to that rule use these settings:

 

configure
set service nat rule 4010 destination address '!192.168.0.6'
set service nat rule 4010 destination port 53
set service nat rule 4010 inbound-interface eth1
set service nat rule 4010 inside-address address 208.67.222.222
set service nat rule 4010 log disable
set service nat rule 4010 protocol tcp_udp
set service nat rule 4010 type destination
commit
change

 

Now device on 192.168.0.6 bypasses the force to router and uses its own DNS in above case OpenDNS normal DNS

 

Hope this helps

Bootloader was manually updated during the intial upgrade and the router was running the latest bootloader and firmware.
For some reason it was a bad first experience.Who knows could have been a faulty unit.
ER Lite isn’t suitable in my case as I need a router + switch combo with 4+ LAN ports combo to minimise the clutter.

Any reason why you wouldn’t recommend GWN7000? Don’t they claim 10 gbps aggregate switching bandwidth or is it the firmware?

Well the GWN7000 does have support for Gigabit but a few people have had issues with this - switching performance is across the combined switch ports and not routing. Another router you can try is the MikroTik RB760iGS - https://gowifi.co.nz/routers/rb760igs.html however these are a little more difficult than the Edgerouter to configure.

 

I honestly suggest perhaps trying your luck with another Edgerouter X. They're great routers and the ones I have are going rock solid even on v2.0.1. The PPPoE outage could have been for a few reasons but I feel it is harsh to return it based on one PPPoE drop (where the issue could have been with your ISP, or with Chorus).

Hi there,

I recently brought a unifi USG, cloud key, poe switch, AP and have Vodafone's fibreX internet at home. I'm struggling getting it connected to the internet..
I plugging the USG in and didn't have access to the internet so assumed that needed to set VLAN 10

I searched around and followed these steps after ssh to the USG

configure
edit interfaces ethernet eth0
delete address
delete firewall
set vif 10 address dhcp
set vif 10 firewall in name WAN_IN
set vif 10 firewall local name WAN_LOCAL
commit
save
exit

It then picked up an IP address which is progress but I still wasn't connected to the internet. I couldn't ping anything for example. Rebooted modem, USG, checked all the patch leads etc..
I'm a bit stumped here.. I can only assume I don't have the correct settings on the USG.

Any ideas anyone?

The USG is not an Edgerouter. You're best to check the Ubiquiti documentation or start a new thread.

After working for a month my Edgerouter X SFP is bricked :(

 

I was just rearranging the wiring to make things tidy but now the Edgerouter has died. I have tried a power on reset but even then I could not re-establish communication with the router. The power and Eth0 indicator are on but I can no longer communicate with it. What I have done is really nothing out of ordinary and I am surprised that this is sufficient to brick it.

 

I bought it from PBTech and I will see what they say.. Sigh.

If you have another power supply with the right specifications, try that with it.  Edgerouter power supplies do die - both of my Edgerouter Lite 3 ones have.  But they should last longer than a month - mine worked for over three years.  In both cases, my ERL3s apeared to power up, but did not work, just like your ERX seems to be doing.

when you reset it you have to completely reconfigure it so connect it directly via eth0 to your pc and set a static ip - which might be the problem?
