I am looking at getting an EdgeRouter-X, as my current wndr3700 is getting a bit long in the tooth and is unable to handle Gigabit fibre which I'm currently trialling at home, instead it is tapping out at around 350 up/down.
While I see recommendations for the EdgeRouterX being able to do gigabit, no-one has mentioned if it is able to do full gagbit, while also performing DHCP, DNS and other router-esque tasks (performance graphs etc.).
I am looking at having 3 ports live- 1 wired PC, 1 wndr3700 for wifi and the WAN port, and have the EdgeRouter take over all router functions that the current wndr3700 does, except wifi and maybe VPN.
So the question: Does anyone have any evidence to say that it will continue to be able to pump through gigabit while performing the other router functions? or do I need to look at the EdgeRouter-Lite to be able to do this?
If I was to get the Edgerouter-X, what compromises in functions would I have to make in order to consistently achieve gigabit speeds (maybe not using DHCP, DNS functions and leave that with the WNDR3700).
