    Need help setting up whole home wifi solution

    I'm most likely going to give the Unifi a shot but if I have issues with it I'll try out the open mesh AP. Thanks for all the help guys. I'll post from time to time on this thread with my experience with the Unifi and potentially Openmesh if the Unifi AP doesn't work out.
