Hi - I'm looking to set up multiple VLANS at home to isolate primary computers, iot, guest network, cameras. Given the working from home situation, I also want to have configurable QOS to make sure my video meetings maintain bandwidth when someone is watching netflix. I'm going to be upgrading my FIOS from 80Mbps to at least 400 Mbps. Initially, the Ubiquiti Unifi line seemed like exactly what I need, but the more I read, the more I see about issues, bugs, undocumented limitations, etc. More reading - EdgeRouter rather than Unifi seems more solid and mature - but even there, when I dig into reviews from people who sound like they know their stuff, it seems there are still big issues with Ubiquiti. My impression is it's hit or miss. So my question is - is there not a product out there suitable for a home network, with good VLAN support, and QOS support, that is solid, reliable, can firmware updated without bricking (saw more than one complaint about this for EdgeRouter), etc? I'm willing to spend up to $200. I plan to have some managed switches and separate wireless APs.
