I have a router in use and am replacing it with a better model (same brand). Anyone see any issues with just unplugging the switch from the old router and plugging it into the new one? Settings from old mirrored to new (IP, dhcp ranges, port forwards etc,).
Two weeks ago I moved my dhcp from my cable modem to a small edge router that allows exporting/importing the list. Prior to this I had to maintain my list in an xls because my cable modem sucks and the list has to be maintained in their cloud.
I have a 500mbps down / 20mbps up connection and with the deep packet analysis turned off and Hosts only analysis turned on it seems to keep up ok. I am still debating if I should have gone with an ER-4.
I find that no matter which model I buy from a line-up, I pretty much always do the "Hmmm...should I have gotten the other one?!" dance in my head. I've been very happy w/my Edgerouter, for me it's been completely set it and forget it.
