U just need to shift out the router. Ont can remain inside the box..

Well I can't comment on whether central location is enough for u.. Depends on your layout..


Hi there, so may I ask how do I do the connection?
Is it:

1. TP >> ONT inside DB
2. ONT connect to patch panel inside DB box via cat6 cable
3. from Lan port to wireless router placed on living room TV console?

If your patch panel is terminated at dB, then you can only out the router inside while getting another ap to be placed outside..

Er. Your plan above would work. I'll assume you want to put the router in the study room. So you will connect it this way:

1. TP -> ONT inside DB
2. ONT connect to patch panel port which is linked to the study room port
3. Wireless router connect to study room port (WAN port on router)

Yep that's what I wanted. But if I want to place in on the TV console, do i need to lay 1 more lan cable for smart tv?

I am facing an issue where my upload speed is capped at 150Mbps on both a smartphone (2x2 MIMO) and MacBook Pro (3x3 MIMO) according to the local speedtests over Wi-Fi. The download speed ranges from 300-400Mbps on a 2x2 MIMO device.

Can someone with the Unifi AC Pro post his local speedtests as well? Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much! Your post confirmed my doubts. I guess it's time to show my administrator and get him to investigate this.

if you put your wireless router in DB box, you won't have good wifi coverage already.

Unifi AP is just a wireless AP which works like your wireless router, which needs to be placed in a centralised location and that you have to find the location yourself, whereas an extender leeches on the existing wifi network and broadcast it further at a cost of lower bandwidth, as part of the source is being utilised as a backhaul.

I suggest you consider shifting the wireless router out and avoid using extender..
Does that mean this is similar to a wireless Extender? Am looking at to buy a mesh or this... Not sure how this works though. I have an existing router ac68 but my rooms having shitty connections.

Difference* should be the channels.

You won't get channel 12 and 13 for 2.4 GHz

For 5ghz, no DFS.

Good buy at Amazon now.
when first setting up the access point it will ask you which country you are from. If you select Singapore you will have DFS channels for 5ghz and channel 12, 13 for 2.4ghz

Best to buy from amazon if it does not ship over here use a freight forwarder. Savings can be substantial.

Import from amazon about SGD180+ but you lose channel 12 and 13.
