Spending too much time trying to work with (below) average gear - need something better.
Im ok with keeping the Archer C7's as my dumb APs, but i need a new dedicated router.
I currently have an SFP/RJ45 media converter used to go from my ISP (Bell) fiber line to the WAN port on my Archer C7, but as you can see in my post above, things are just not working out!
I had my eye on the Ubiquity ER-X-SFP Edgerouter X, but its out of stock for several more weeks near me. So, maybe theres an easier option i can go and pick up this weekend.
A router with an SFP port built in is not required since i have the media converter already, but condensing may be interesting.
Don't need a wireless router, as i'll keep wifi controlled by the APs.
POE is also interesting, although i dont have any immediate use for it today.
Today i have 500/500Mbps, but future support for 1Gbps+ would be cool too.
I can't imagine i'm anywhere under $150, but dont want to spend $400 either.
