Is it connecting to 2.4GHz N?

I have my 2.4GHz at "low" transmit power on my UAP-AC. Most devices will prefer the 5GHz in my home as the signal is much higher.

It gives 2.4GHz-only devices a below par experience but it definitely encourages devices to roam to 5GHz.

UAP-AC Gen 2 devices have band steering.
SSID is configured for 5ghz only. My MacBook connects first to AC but after a few seconds it's connected to N and sticks with it even when roaming.

You have a separate N AP? If your client device prefers that, then it is providing a better RSSI than your AC AP.

If you get the correct speeds on a wired speedtest, it means there's a hardware/config issue on your side baÖ

My wired speedtest (on M1) gets a nice flat 950Mbps (Softlayer server)
My wired speedtest is good.

But only WiFi.....

The UAP-AC-PRO is now connected to my ASUS RT-AC87U LAN. Hmmm....

Any other advice?

What rate are you seeing on your client? Did you set your UAP to Singapore region? Try channels ≥149

UniFi Security Gateway / Edgerouter Lite, UAP AC Pro [old version] setup here.
Considering the pricing of top end router nowadays, not overkill anymore lol.

Hi guys, I am interested to try Ubiquiti but not sure how to start.

Planning to upgrade network for a 2 storey home for better wifi coverage. Currently using 2x asus rt-n56u... one as access point configuration... the house currently have CAT cables going up and down at different ends too.

Can anyone suggest a cost effective setup? Or should I just reuse my router and get some Ubiquiti AP only? The backbone switch is a basic Dlink 16-24 ports gigabit switch.
Hope to upgrade some ports to POE to support AP...

Either sim lim square or on Lazada.

You won't get those small/medium business equipment at consumer electronics shops

Can reuse n56u if the processing speed is enough as it can handle WAN-LAN 1000mbps no issue.
Donít need to die die power the APs with POE switch can just reuse that and purchase POE injectors as well.

The pity is that N56U runs very out-dated firmware.
