These are fantastic, easy to manage devices. Pair them with UniFi AC AP Pro, AC AP LR or AC HD.

Installed my first one a couple weeks ago. They're a breeze. Cloud Key is a nice addition for remote management if you've got a smaller infrastructure.

Buyer beware if you have gigabit speeds (or internet speeds over 500MB/s) - their forums are loaded with people experiencing issues with higher internet speeds on these units. I'm one of them - and after two months, I'm nowhere closer to having it resolved.

Just curious, is this the case even with IPS or DPI turned off? The above is pretty much the reason why I'm going with the Edgerouter 4 for now, but going unifi switches/waps/cloud key for rest of infrastructure.

Just installed my first UniFi setup last night at my house to replace google WiFi. I have Comcast 1gb service and averaged 960mbps down on a wire. WiFi speeds averaged 350-500 on gWifi, now I am getting 50mbps max on all devices.

It seems like it's capped...need to figure this out.

They have a pretty good tech support. They will remote network in depending on how dumb you sound on the phone.

You almost certainly have Intrusion Detection turned on. The USG CPU chokes with it on. If I turn it on I get ~50mbps, once I turn it off (even with DPI turned on) I get my full 250+mbps.

Check and make sure you try this and retest: Settings->IPS->Disabled

And use a third party speed test. I find the USG built-in test to be inconsistent.

Got my USG a couple of weeks ago to play with. I like it, but there are a couple of things that are driving me nuts coming from an R7000 running a WRT port.

1) High latency with Xbox multi-player games. With DPI turned off its better but still get high latency alerts during game play. Probably the most frustrating thing.

2) The speed and latency reported on the main screen of the controller is totally incorrect. Speed test doesn't even work or measure properly.

3) NO WOL. With my other router, I could send a magic packet to any device Mac address within the GUI. I got it working with a json script but this has been a feature request for months with no sign of progress.

4) Limited IPv6 options. My ISP hasn't migrated natively over to IPv6, so I have depended on a 6to4 tunnel using a Hurricane Electric account. This can be achieved by use of scripts, but I haven't bothered yet.

5) Settings seem to be scattered between the controller and within devices making it a chore at times to find specific ones.

6) Limited Lan ports. With one LAN1 port, would be nice to at least configure the Console and LAN2 ports for Lan use.

The GUI and Unifi integration is the key thing going for it. But lack of even the basic GUI WRT settings you can find on other routers, makes this a CLI based router for most advanced settings. For that, save $50 and get an edgerouter instead.

Tried all of these. Trust me folks, check their forums and you'll see that some (not all, as I mentioned above) high speed users are having significant issues with these. Not ironically, the USG Pro doesn't have the same problems.

It's not a CPU issue, and the people who have been troubleshooting it (together with UBNT's support) haven't been able to figure it out. And we're not talking mom and pop 'where do I plug this thing in' users, we're talking about SAs and network admins who have more than enough experience to know there's a problem.

I've never had an issue with mine and get speeds close to 400mbps, which is what I have through my isp. I would purchase this again, best setup out there for home or small business.

Are you using Smart Queue? If so, the CPU in the USG can only handle about 50-60mbps I believe. Smart Queue is a great feature that keeps latency down under load, but is not hardware accelerated and therefore CPU limited. If you have that much bandwidth, latency under load may not be a big issue for you.

Funny that you mention this. I'm on ATT gigabit fiber and having problems with meraki. I think it's their crappy modem TBH. At first it was ok, but now I have to reboot the thing every other week.

The truth is, given the features running on very spartan hardware (this thing sells for around a hundred bucks even when not on sale), asking it to do everything it does at gigabit speeds seems almost unreasonable.

At the same time, though - I replaced an Asus router that was handling the gigabit speeds like a champ with many of the same services enabled, likely because more functions were handled by ASICs than by firmware.

Read up on solutions which include ssh and setting the MTU manually.
