What do you use 2gbps bandwidth for just curious. I find the cloud key abit redundant in a home environment, I run the unifi controller on my plex / file server machine and with auto upgrades turn on and never look at it again lol

Finally got both of my access points mounted to the ceiling to improve the coverage cone. One for each floor of the house.

Got quite a few things going on the network and quite a few people streaming from my Plex server. I separate the traffic into the two WANS so nothing will get congested. A few remote NAS is doing on the fly syncs and backups too for a few business-related websites.

I like the CloudKey due to the remote access ability without needing to open ports on the firewall. Reason why it's not on the NAS is redundancy.

Do you run plex directly on the NAS?

Changed to a single 16 port switch to avoid all the interswitch links and also moved all of the equipment into a proper server rack. A lot more quieter and infinitely neater..

Doesn't that switch only have gigabit ports? Seems a waste with 2gbps internet

It's called a CloudKey. It's an always on controller for the Unifi equipments. Needed if you do remote management of the setup. Also needed if you have a guest network with a welcome portal.
