Anybody used Cambium Networks routers? Specifically the R195W?


I'm just looking for a small/cheapish router that can do VLAN tagging and has gigabit ports. Wont be used for WiFi.


Alternatively was looking at something like the MikroTik RB750Gr3 RouterBOARD RB750Gr3 hEX 5 Port Gigabit Ethernet SOHO Router.

How small? Does it need to route gigabit, or just have gigabit ethernet?

+1 for MikroTik RB750Gr3 or if you are looking for something even smaller, Ubiquiti Edegrouter-X is probably one of the smallest gigabit router


Both will handle gigabit fibre as long as you don't have any complicated routing or firewall settings on it

I used it for about a year, seemed to need power cycling regularly after a while but never worked out if it was something I did wrong or the device itself. I gave up on it in the end and acquired an old hg659w. Michael Murphy did a detailed review here Cambium cnPilot R195W review

I have about 1,600 cambium cnpilot devices deployed in service. 

The r195w is a good mid-range router but if you dont need wifi then the mikoritk will be a better choice, though it has a steep learning curve if you are only used to web based interfaces for modems.
