Good deal Thanks OP.
Bit confused on the spec which says 3x3 MIMO Chains, but doesnt support MU-MIMO?
Yeah it is :)
Good deal OP. I might share some as there are many items on sale
How do you get 141.84… W1M12 shows 190.66 for me..Aah missed the lattitude pay bit
Would it be better to get the Wifi 6 model (Lite 6) for future proofing?
That’s probably why it’s on sale
Don’t know what to do either
I've got both….more range in the pro
This is wifi 6 and more future proof but isn't 3 x 3 MIMO and has a shorter range. Given I don't need a massive range for wifi (multiple AP's), don't need massive speeds but do have lots of little devices I bought the wifi 6 which is also on sale.
Can someone explain what that Unifi WAP does?
I'm looking for a 4G booster. I know there's companies out there but they've all been rather trash.
An AP delivers a Wi-Fi signal.
Do I need a router or modem for this thing or can I plug my telephone line or ethernet cable into this?
It plugs into a router
They're pretty average and costs like $1500 i think lol
Installed some on a farm with yagi antennas results were very impressive.
@Elijha: I had the Cel-Fi Pro and it came losing connection between the two boxes.
Which one did you use?
@Orico: Go Stationary.
This is an add on access point to an existing Unify system, so it won't work on it's own.
I think i ran an AP-AC-LITE without a controller somehow… :S
You can use the Unifi app on your phone if you don't want to setup a controller.
32" 1080p monitors should be illegal.
Pretty good as a backglass screen for a virtual pinball table though… or a bunch of other uses really.
Centrecom has the unifi 6 lite for $169. I'm pretty happy with mine
Are you running a full Unify setup mate?
I'm looking to upgrade at home from my Telstra modem & Tends MW3 mesh and going around in circles.
Currently thinking Unify USG router to PoE+ panel with 3 WAP, 2 TV areas and office on Ethernet and space for cctv in the future.
If you've gone full Ubiquiti have you found it worth the cost?
I have 4 ubiquiti APs without a USG gateway. You need to run their software somewhere which is a bit of a pain but you can do it on a raspberry pi. I've found they work really well and are very reliable. I'm not that fussed about speed and getting the latest wifi 6, speed is good enough
I am currently limited at home with a top speed from the NBN FTTN of 30-35Mbps, so I don't think I'd have any issue with the tech being the limiting factor?
I am planning on setting up an Old laptop with Home Assistant app could run the software off that I guess. Do you need to have the software running all the time or just for setup?
Other option I've been considering is Umart have a Link Sys 24port PoE switch half price for $300 and access points for $69-89 each. Would just need a modem/router to round out it.
@UnderwaterHaze: @UnderwaterHaze: I have the same Unifi system running at my place. I just run the software for setup or tweaking things. Once it's up and running it will just keep working, mine has been flawless for 3 years and only logged into it again to add a third AP
@UnderwaterHaze: Telstra VDSL2 modems are actually solid for FTTN. Yeah FTTN is your bottleneck.
@Twix: Tried out the new NBN Co upgrade quote system….
The street would apparently be upgraded for free if before the cutoff of 20Mbs. Tried 5G as we're supposed to have coverage…. 17Mbs. Same phone in town 800Mbs.
So depressing 😭
@UnderwaterHaze: 14.5k what a bargain. That's not the worst quote 😆
I'm not sure it's worth the cost. But it is good, very easy to control everything from 1 app.
A have a
- poe edge router
- 2 litebeam 5ac dishes (to connect to a house about 1km away)
- unifi 6 access point
No complaints with any of them, easy to set up and no issues. Way better than my annoying optus netgwar router
But when I see deals for Asus wifi 6 routers I wonder if I should have just bought that.
A plus for me is that I only have to run power to the router and it powers the other stuff
these dont need a controller yea? never really saw the point in them, seems like more "quality of life" features rather than what it's meant to do i.e: unifi ap > switch/router > internet.
Yeah you need the controller. Just a piece of software you can install on your computer for the initial setup.
sorry i meant cloud key. i guess im confusing it with a software controller.
One or the other really. You can have a physical cloud key or just use the software.
Or use the app on your phone
Yes does the same thing. Though not ideal if you don't want to use standalone mode.
You don't need a controller if you just want to use it as a AP
Controllers give you stats and other functionality, and are required if you want to use captive portal
Cloudkey is just a small linux device running the controller

I think Ubiquiti's reputation has taken a hit after their latest breach fiasco https://krebsonsecurity.com/2021/04/ubiquiti-all-but-confirm...
Ubiquiti's response to the incident has been apalling so far. Some of the popular YouTube reviewers are now switching to TP Link Omada.
Yeah change your password and turn on 2FA. Which YouTubers?
The potential impact is far simpler than simply just resetting your password.
“They were able to get cryptographic secrets for single sign-on cookies and remote access, full source code control contents, and signing keys exfiltration,” Adam said.
The potential impact is that they could release malicious code as an update to every device in the future.
Crosstalk solutions and Lawrence solutions are two of the YouTubers who would regularly vouch for and review Ubiquiti products on their channels.
Thanks I'll go watch their videos.
The Ubiquiti U6-LITE from these guys at $177 - $50 from Latitude for a total of $127 looks really nice. Tempting
Has anyone used these with Asus router to create a mesh network?
No one has done that because it's not possible.
Yeah it is but you need to have at least one wired to the Asus router
Does wireless1 offer free shipping if you spend above a certain amount?
Edit: sorry I should’ve read the entire post. My bad
I don't know what I'm doing wrong but neither W1M12 or W1M10 are working for me.
Do you have a wireless 1 account?
It does not apply to all products, only a selection.
I've got a UDM currently. I understand that I could get the UAP-AC-PRO-V2 and use it with a wireless backhaul? Ie I do not connect the AP to the router via LAN cable. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.
What about a USG?
A USG can have APs via wireless backhaul. UniFi - Configuring a Wireless Uplink
I have never used these before, is one for each floor on a two storied house enough ? I'd hope so at these prices :-D.. I mean the WAP units.. I have used tenda and you need a fair few to cover a floor adequately.. and I do understand that these are WAP and not mesh routers..just asking about coverage efficiency..at the very least these will not need rebooting I am sure..Fourth edit ..maybe shouldve asked that before ordering two of these but if someone answers and someone who has used these things in a double storey house please, I'll cancel the order and stick to the mesh networks
I have a UAP-AC-LITE and it covers both floors of my home…
So one on each floor, these Pro v2 should do for both floors.. thank you for replying.. much appreciated bud
ACPRO or Lite for just internal home?
Whichever is cheaper :p
Noob question, is CAT6 data point enough to hook up AC PRO V2? Also, what would be a solid router to pair up with this AP for a 29sq single storey house? Cheers
CAT6 is plenty. How much do you want to spend? How fast is your NBN?
Happy to spend around $300, NBN will be FTTP 100 Mbps
I'm sure the UAP would be faster than the 12.5mbps that you'll actually get…
@NGPriest: Sorry not sure but what's that to do it the router/modem?
@go2force: Relative noob here too, but my understanding is regardless of how great the network inside your house, you'll never go faster than the speed at which the NBN comes in to your house.
I.e. mine max's out at 33Mbps so I could actually get away with using a 100mb switch/mesh/wap's as I'll never get any higher than the 33.
@UnderwaterHaze: Yep… I get 433Mbps on my wifi, but my 100/40 NBN gets me around 12Mbps…
If I get 1000/50, that'll be around… 125Mbps?
@NGPriest: yup got it now, thanks you. Also, I have been reading online that FTTP requires only router and not modem+router. Are you able to recommend a decent WiFi6 router? Cheers
@UnderwaterHaze: ahh that makes sense. I have ordered the AP but thinking to cancel it. I am building a new house and planning to future proof it with a WiFi 6 router. Have been reading online that FTTP requires only router and not modem+router. Are you able to recommend a decent WiFi6 router? Cheers
@UnderwaterHaze: That is right for WAN speed. @go2force has Fibre to the Premises which is capable of 1000Mbps.
@UnderwaterHaze: Just keep in mind if you use something like Plex media server, or transfer large files in your local network, you might still want a faster access point that why your internet can provide.
@Celebraces: Like 4k or 8k streams :D
In the Unifi range there is the USG for around $180.
@Twix: thanks mate, are you talking about https://ubiquitistore.com.au/product/ubiquiti-unifi-enterpri... ?
@go2force: Yeah that's the USG. Wi-Fi 6 routers around $300: ASUS TUF AX3000, ASUS RT-AX3000, TP-Link Archer AX73, TP-Link Archer AX50.
For Fibre to the Premises you provide a router and nbn co install a fibre connection box.
@Twix: really appreciated, thank you so much. Sorry a bit confused, is USG still a router but not just a WiFi 6 enabled one? Cheers
@go2force: A USG is a plain router without built-in Wi-Fi. To get Wi-Fi 6 you'd need to purchase a Unifi U6 Lite AP or any of the other upcoming Unifi Wi-Fi 6 APs and hook it up to the USG.
@Twix: okay, got it now. Thanks for being really patient, you're a champ :)
@go2force: At one of my places, i'm using a USG + UAP-AC-LITE
At the other place, I'm using a UDM
Was talking to my partner about getting a UAP-AC-PRO-V2 for… Fun…?
Wifi 6 doesn't do much, unless you live in a congested location or have lots of devices (IMO)
I know the UAP-AC-LITE has 2x2
And the UAP-AC-PRO-V2 has 3x3
And the UDM has 4x4 :D
Edit: If you need a new router, you can start with the UDM, USG+UAP+Controller in one
Oh, the UDM i have covers 2 floors of the house
But i started with the UAP-AC-LITE before i bought the USG…
Only got the USG for the Dual WAN for failover… Crappy NBN and having to fallover to more reliable ADSL…
@NGPriest: Oh wow, thanks for detailed explanation. You're a legend mate!!
@go2force: I'm planning on getting the UDM-Pro one day…
If my NBN goes down, as it usually does around public holidays, it'll fallback to my 4G…
Edit: Oh, I got my UAP-AC-LITE for ~$60-70?
Should've bought lots when it was on sale…
@NGPriest: Oh okay, I was reading about UDM and thought that was overkill for home and you want UDM pro. What do you guys do with your networks😁
@go2force: If you need a new network or overhaul, then UDM might be the solution :D
Add the uap-ac-pro-v2 for extra coverage if needed?
If you get the UDM and don't need the uap-ac-pro-v2, I'll be happy to take it off your hands…
Was about to buy it, but expired…
@NGPriest: thanks buddy, I have asked Wireless1 to cancel the order but if they don't I will let you know and you can have it. Btw, thanks for all your responses!! Cheers
@go2force: Ask them not to cancel it?
You gojng to get the UDM?
@NGPriest: I have dropped them another email not to cancel it. Can I check if UDM will be enough to cover a single storey 29 sq house if it's placed in the garage? TIA
@go2force: I'll need the layout of your house?
I prefer to put everything in a central place…
Which is why I wasn't going to let the NBNco contractor put the NTD in the garage or on one side of the house…
The UDM and the UAP-AC-LITE are covering both 2 story large houses…
@NGPriest: Happy to share, can you DM your details? TIA
@go2force: [email protected] :D
@NGPriest: Hahah, okay.
@NGPriest: Where you will see Wi-Fi 6 AP benefits is faster downloads if your devices have Wi-Fi 6 radios and are on a Gigabit plan.
@Twix: Need to overhaul my entire network…
Gigabit? Maybe in a decade or two, when nbnco pulls up it's pants…
Yep, I'll overhaul my network in a decade or two :p
