It can however you may need to update the firmware out of the box so it has support for VLAN 10 on PPPoE.

 

 

how are devices still coming out in nz without firmware that supports VLAN 10 PPPoE out of the box....

 

 

Because it's Ubiquiti and there have been 30 bug fixes since the device came off the manufacturing line a month a go 🤣

I’ve been keeping my eye on the DM firmware. Latest official build is dated 27 March, 1.5.6. This build definitely supports the VLAN setting, but also contains the ‘not connected to internet’ bug, and others. 1.7.2 will probably work fine and is officially the version for the Pro. 

 

Ubiquiti have strange version update numbering predilections.

I know that Bigpipe needs VLAN set to off

 

 

That's basically why I asked - I'm with bigpipe and I did not have to configure VLAN for their connection.

At least they fix the bugs, my last firmware update for my current Linksys EA-9500 Router was in 2017

@clayton Does it have bugs? If Yes how many have you reported?

Looks like https://mikrotik.com/product/chateau_lte12 has B28, but not much else on mikrotik front. But what's wrong with bands 3,7,8 and 40?

Because it makes a mobile product that will work in some areas on some carriers instead of everywhere with all of them, and the resulting customer service nightmare that is selling people something that will not work where their phone will work fine.

I kind of was hoping for a more concrete answer. Are you saying that 28 is available everywhere and the others mentioned are not?

Due to the hardware limitations if you turn on the deep packet filter then the max throughput it can handle with that is 850Mbps. With it off it can handle full gigabit.

thanks, now I am interested in the UniFi Dream Machine Pro, 8 x LAN ports would be good, but how does it stack up with the Wi-Fi performance compared to the non pro device?

It doesn't have WiFi. You need additional wireless access points.
