Matter of opinion =D

 

I say Mikrotik wins in terms of being a more fully functional "router" but Ubiquiti have some nice features that suit the home user in terms of traffic reporting and a prettier interface.

Personal preference however in my testing I've found the Edgerouter Lite to perform much better than a similar priced Mikrotik.

Can someone tell me if the Edgerouter Lite can be used with a Fortigate 60C firewall, ie;

 

ONT --- EdgeRouterERLite3 --- Fortigate60C --- LAN

 

 

 

I want to do the NAT & Firewalling in the Fortigate, but have the EdgeRouter perform the PPPoE.

 

ISP connection: 200M or gigabit BigPipe UFB, with static IP.

 

The Fortigate has gigabit eth ports, but cant handle more than around 120Mbps of PPPoE because the CPU max's out (known issue with the smaller Fortigates, because PPPoE is not offloaded to the network processor ASIC).

With Bigpipe you don't have to use PPPoE, they should be able to activate IPoE which seems to be just like DHCP, which might mean you don't need another device. I'm not sure how supported IPoE is on the Bigpipe side though, I haven't seen it advertised.

We don't advertise IPoE because we don't officially support it. We can turn it on for testing purposes, but make no guarantees that it will work 100% of the time, nor that it will be compatible with 100% of the potential devices that could be connected to our network. :)

 

For our UFB connections we officially support PPPoE. For VDSL we officially support PPPoE on VLAN 10. For ADSL we officially support PPPoA. It is indeed true that there are routers out there that don't deal well with fast PPPoE connections.
