I recommend running a speed test on the port you're using for wifi on the
router and watch the CPU usage. On the lite models some features are not
hardware assisted on all ports, and if you end up doing packets in software
you'll get about 100Mbps rather than 1Gbps. Simple configurations should
work just fine though, I think our misconfiguration had a virtual switch or
bridge that we did not even need in the first place.

Our ubiquiti wifi / edge router combo works great (when not misconfigured),
but we have fewer people in a smaller office so it's not really comparable.
