ok I got it installed this afternoon, the only trouble I had was with the software as it uses Java and I kept having issues getting it to start. After doing some googling I decided to install the x64 java and that was it, started up the software and configured it and and got it going. It was really easy to configure and was working instantly.

I installed it in the same place as my previous wireless set-up to compare the two and the coverage on the house was much better. Now it's only 2.4ghz but using my tablet and speedtest I got 80down/60up wireless standing in the room with it where my best previous from the same location was 40/40 with a 150/75 fiber FiOS connection.

This installation picture is in my basement, I got much better coverage over my whole house and much better speeds.

Though a faulty Microwave over can easily bleed out and impact everything from the ~2.4 Ghz and up depending on how bad it gets.

Yes, a leaky microwave can create all kinds of havoc with wireless networking, even if it's not leaking physically dangerous levels of microwaves. you can overload other bands with too much power - ever drive by a radio station and have your radio suddenly "on the wrong channel" even though it's not?

So, your post convinced me and my wife to get the UniFi AP....

But last night my 2.4 band died again, and with it so did the wired connection, it was odd. Before the 2.4 died, it was chugging, I was trying to stream a non hD video, then everything quit. I turned off my wired desktop and after the 2.4 came back fine. I will say however, that when everything crashed the wired came back up immediately, and worked as though nothing had happened.

It's it possible that my WiFi is killing my wired connections? Or do you think it's just the whole thing is dying?

I guess that if I get the UniFi AP that I can use it for years to come, regardless of router?

That's exactly right. It's also expandable and you can add additional AP's for more coverage. It comes with the PoE adapter, which you just ethernet from your router or switch to the adapter then ethernet from the adapter to the AP. It comes with a bracket like with a smoke detector basically. You mount the backplate then plug in the ethernet and connect it to the backplate with a little twist.

Yeah, /sigh. So I need a new router, and an AP. Whee! Will any gigabit router work with the UniFi AP?

Let us know what devices you are pondering smile.gif

Yeah so any router will work with it, if you really wanted you could get a Ubiquiti ERL, Edge Router Lite for $99 or maybe less on eBay. Its all configured through a similar web UI to the Unifi AP.

This was discussed earlier in the thread and i believe was determined to be too much setup. A consumer router will be simpler to setup.

Oops redface.gif, must have missed that.

So something like a TP Link WDR3500 for $48 with the Unifi as the AP?
