A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. The most familiar type of routers are home and small office cable or DSL routers that simply pass data, such as web pages, email, IM, and videos between computers and the Internet.

Though routers are typically dedicated hardware devices, use of software-based routers has grown increasingly common.

Ubiquiti relatively new in the USA, but the quality and price of their products make them is now on the rise, thy grow very fast, if you have any of their products you may want to look in their Network Management System [UNMS] from where you can manage all you Ubiquiti devices from one central place via a web page, and even from a phone, it is still in bate but already have nice amount of management. The only down side with Ubiquiti is support.
In short I will be give guide how to install UNMS on a virtual machine in hyper-v and change the default port for security [you don’t need to have a server, since windows 10 supports hyper-v].
As you can see on their website you need to have 64-bit (x64) CPU and assign
•      2 GB RAM (Minimal)
•      16 GB storage (Minimal)
To follow this guide you should also own a domain and have a static ip, you can make it work without but this guide is based with the above requirements.

1-      Download and install Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) 64-bit
2-      Once your done with the instlation and you have the machine up and running open the terminal and Run the following script, curl -fsSL https://unms.com/install > /tmp/unms_inst.sh && sudo bash /tmp/unms_inst.sh
3-      Login to you domain host and add a DNS a record at you domain host to point to your public IP you can call it however you want [acb.initializebiz.com]
4-      Get your local IP address make it static in your router or reserve in domain controller
5-      Open a web browser Locally and enter the …

Thank you for paying attention to my post.

On my lest article I posted Editor Comment me the following;
The article is full of spelling and grammar related errors. I mentioned when I published your last submission that a considerable amount editing was required to correct both spelling and grammar mistakes. I often find it helpful to slowly read each sentence and paragraph slowly and aloud to myself to see how it sounds.  

I understand and am sympathetic to the fact that English may not be your first language, which is possibly why you are running into so many difficulties, however, the purpose of an editing process isn't to rewrite your articles for you so that they read well and make sense.

A few corrections here and there are always tolerated during the editing process, but you really need to make more of an effort to get your work as close to perfect as possible before submitting for editing and publication.  

Perhaps get a fluent English friend to proof read your work for you and make suggestions for improvements, or at the very least, run your text through an online Spelling and Grammar checker. There are many such services on the Web you could take advantage of, both Free and Paid.

Since I am limited in time, and don’t have that much time to spend on writing the article to accommodate the requirements of submitting an article on top of the time it takes to put together the article, but still want to voluntary information that others may find helpful, I stopped trying to post articles and rather use post where I can just drop it in, as to post there is no requirements.

A29J_130789574330391040IMb0cMkpFw.jpgEdge router x by ubnt is a router which is not expensive but is has a lot of advanced futures. It has its down side to it that its GUI is hard to figure out, also vary little documentation available. But once you get to know it there is a lot you can do with it.
What I will be focusing is when having two networks on the router and you want to create a firewall between the two networks. This can be useful for example, where you have one secure network and one that is a not that secure [can be a wireless network, etc.] and you want to protect the secure network from any attack that my come from the not secured network.
A ubnt router could be configured by port, you can have as many networks as the amount of ports on the router (without having a vlan although you can have a vlan as well).
Now Let’s start with a example we have 2 networks one is 192.168.1.1 on eth0 which is not the secure network, and 192.168.2.1 on switch0 which runs on eth2/eth3/eth4/eth5 (eth1 we use for the WAN)  which is the secure network. You also want to restrict the .1.1 from having access to the .2.1 and from accessing the router management.
1-      Create a firewall port group that will include ssh port (22) http (80) https (443) and telnet (23).
2-       Go to the Firewall/NAT tab, firewall/add ruleset, name it, set the default action to accept.
3-      On the newly created ruleset, action/configuration/roles/add new rule, name it, action -drop, next move to advanced, check -established …

Stuck with the router not picking the correct IP of your modem?

Try logging into the router's homepage (normally 192.168.0.1 depending the brand of it), log with administrative accounts and go to WAN connections, release it and renew it..!

If this does not work and the router keeps the same IP even after attempting to renew it, probably the ISP might need to change and release it from the modem or.. you could connect directly to the modem, do an IPCONFIG /RELEASE  ,  IPCONFIG/RENEW, then plug everything back to the router and re-do the first steps again, and maybe just maybe it will change this time.

Good night everyone.

I finally decided to get one of these open source customizeable routers and I'm loving it. It's for advanced consumers and it is a bit pricey but it works well and is really fast.

I was going to order from Amazon but they ran out so I ordered from the same company on eBay. I tried waiting for the higher spec'd one but I couldn't wait any longer. It looks like they're back on Amazon now though.
