I found that the jointer was the least used piece of equipment in my shop. I sold it and never looked back. My planer works fine for surfacing the boards. If the board is so wide that the planer pushes it down in the center then I simply rip the board narrower. The secret is not buying lumber that is badly warped. As for the edges I run them through the planer or use the table saw or as a last resort a hand plane. I suppose I could use the router but for me that doesn't make sense unless I was doing a whole lot of edges. It takes longer to set the router up then it does to plane the edge by hand.
