It looks like I will be needing a router for my 1 Gigabit home connection, and there’s very little chance that I won’t be getting the UB ER-6P
Every networking device I have is from UB, switches, access points, that management key thingy. And to top it off I found a used router for about $160 converted, brand new would be $260.
Everything seems to be aligned, even though I don’t need the many ports it has.
What I’d like to know is how safe it is to buy something like this used? I know there’s a big market for used networking equipment, but I’m pretty sure the seller bought it like 3 weeks ago for around $100 and is now making a profit off of it.
The only warranty I’m aware at this point is his word that he’ll take it back in a week if something goes wrong. His reputation suggests he’s good for it though.
Any obvious things to look out for? Tests to run?
