Does that support gigabit POE?

It is running an older version of vyatta, yes.

Not sure what the offloads buy you, except added latency. They are
easily disabled for testing various qdiscs... (can't remember the
command offhand)

There is a pretty modern looking up-to-date build of openwrt for the
edgerouter, using 3.10, and so on. I am told however, that there are
some problems with the toolchain, which show up when you try to use
iptables. Haven't tried it myself (my edgerouter is 60km away), and
don't know how to flash openwrt onto it in the first place.

the current edgerouter firmware (v.1.4.1) is based on 3.4.23, and has
all the bugs in the 3.4 series.

I backported fq_codel and the latest flow hashing stuff to that
version; patch 0013 is a little problematic as yet:
