Ubiquiti - Setting Up Home Network

Hey all,

Anyone tried setting up your home network using Ubiquiti products?

Thank you.

Is there a reason why you choose ubiquitin? It's definitely an overkill for home usage generally, that's why I'm curious on why u choose an enterprise grade product..

Im Using UAP AC lite and intalled it on the central part of the house. Quite impressive with the wifi speed consistency comparing with other brands.

Simple. If you are getting intermittent response from your RT-AC87U (ASUS) at 7Mbps and consistently get these slowness..... and suddenly boost to 468Mbps out of nowhere..... and compare the cost of Ubiquiti, definitely Ubiquiti anytime.

May I know which Edgerouter?

EdgeRouter X? Lite or PoE?

Thank you.

Using 4 UAP-ACs at home.

Was previously using the EdgeRouter Lite but the lack of 10G support was a bummer, and Ubiquiti has yet to release 10G products (other than the Edge/UniFi switch 24/48port models, and I want 4x10G ports but don’t need all 48 copper ports).

Now using a MikroTik CCR as a 10G router-on-a-stick (1 uplink for both WAN and LAN) because it’s the most affordable 10G routing solution right now.



UAP-AC performance has been very satisfactory as well. MacBook Pro Retina 13" (3x3:3 wifi):

How did you manage to get 1170Mbps on your MacBook Pro?

I am thinking of getting the EdgeRouter Lite or PoE with UAP-AC-PRO.
I am currently using Asus RT-AC87U and am on M1 1Gbps (which I think it's getting worse).

The speed should be attainable with the AC87U too, as long as your channel selection lets you force 80MHz mode.

Apparently not.

My speedtest results are hovering at 150Mbps even though both AC87U and UAP-AC-PRO provided 867Mbps (max)..... suspect that the LAN ports are only 1Gbps and therefore cannot obtain the speed that you captured?

My macbook pro retina always picks N instead of AC. Both are 5ghz. How did you force it to stick with AC?

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.

The speeds I have attained will not be limited by a 1Gbps LAN port.

My APs are connected via 1000baseT.

My AP is also connected via 1000baseT.....
Hmmm..... Maybe M1 issue.

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

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