pfsense (or any other open source firewall) is a great choice. Ceiling is a the best spot to put APs, but attic may be too hot for them. A...

Gotcha. Agree, maybe instead of good wifi 5 APs, I should have said some, best or enterprise.
16/01/2022 - 13:20
So we went from "wifi can't deliver speeds over 1Gbps" to "nobody needs it anyway". This AP is a product for enthusiasts, the 0.001% you...

Those are very different devices. Try to read a comparison of pfsense vs udm. Most of the things said about pfsense router would apply to...

You can expect to have 2x GbE ports on all Wifi 5 Wave 2 APs from major vendors. For example Cisco 1800, 2800 and 3800 series, Aruba (aka...

You need PoE+ to power most modern APs (e.g. U6-LR that is in this deal). Regular PoE is only good for older and/or weaker APs or security...

Agree, but we are starting to get closer. Maybe Wifi 6 Wave 2 is when we gonna get real over 1Gbps speeds :)

A detached house or whole floor in the office tower is usually enough to get a pretty good wifi. According to some reports consumer Wifi 6...

WiFi 5 can deliver more than 1Gbps throughout. https://miercom.com/pdf/reports/20160830.pdf
15/01/2022 - 09:58
It still has a single 1Gbps port. Even good wifi 5 APs needed more than that. https://dl.ui.com/ds/u6-lr_ds.pdf

All good, you seem to enjoy tinkering with it and it all works :). Happy days

I am not very familiar with ubiquity gear and problems with roaming is something that people often talk over the beers. It seems that you...

That is a lot of work to manually tune the setup. Does ubiquity still lack support of client roaming from one AP to another with a channel...

Sure, if you have a problem go see a doctor and use what he recommends.

Just don't. Ears are self-cleaning and earwax works its way out of your ear naturally and you can use 10 fingers to finish the job.

Type any product in google and you will find stories of it failing just outside of warranty

How would extended warranty help you with firmware issues? If bugs in firmware affect your usecase, just go and buy another tv. There is no...

Managed to get one in time. Hopefully it is FHR.

Ubiquity makes a lot of very good products, but this one is not one of them. I take your point and removed neg.
