I have been tinkering with my home network for a while now. Over time I have settled on some requirements:
- Low power usage
- Almost zero noise
- Three or more gigabit (or higher) network interfaces
- Support for multiple operating systems (OS)
- Optional but highly desired: supported by FreeBSD, OpenBSD, or NetBSD
Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite (ERL for short) is a small and lightweight device that fits all these requirements.
