I have been having CPU/Freezing issues with my MAX-BR1. It has 4 devices (4Mbps peak out) and will have about 8-9 devices (8-9Mbps peak out) in the near future, using a single IPsec tunnel to a remote office. At this point in time, installing a Peplink device on the other end is a step I wish to avoid at this point in time. After some where between 2-5 hours of usage, the http web admin or wifi will function requiring a power cycle. It is using a 30/10 fiber connection. I am thinking that the MAX-BR1-US-LTE, running 6.2.0 firmware, is not powerful enough to handle the IPsec connection and crashes. I see the documentation that it can handle 2 PepVPN/IPsec connections with a user total of 1-25. The network will have about 55-60 devices on it, but only about 10 of those devices will be exiting the WAN port on the IPsec. Also, the router needs to have a DC input on it rather than AC, as the site does not have AC emergency power, just DC battery backup.
Looking for any input on this, thanks.
Also, how does the over head of IPsec AES-128 compare to the PepVPN AES-256?
