    Ubiquiti Dream Machine Pro

    It should be automatic. The UDMP uses a simple ping target to know what is online.

    You login, input the new SSID and Password, hit apply, will be disconnected and then reconnect to the new SSID like a new wifi network… Has literally been this way since they very first home wireless aps

    Is it normal for LTE data plan to connect to reserved IP for DNS resolution?

    Very normal. Cell Phones do not get their own Public IP in most cases, they are usually clients on the Cell Phone providers network and employee different levels of NAT, routing, etc.

    TP-Link and Ubiquiti gear (specific questions)

    They do allow multiple WAN ports. I use a USG with dual WAN in failover mode, works seamlessly.

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    So again, I will repeat, normal gigabit links in a PERFECT scenario (like lab perfect) max out at ~940mbps. To go above that you need to use the 2.5gb link port that the XB7 does have (its the one with the orange line) and equipment that can run at that link or higher all the way to your device...

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    I believe that is the XB7 https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/broadband-gateways-userguides So to be clear, you are bumping up to real world rate limits on wifi and 1GB hardwire.

    Xfinity - using your own modem/router or theirs

    Using Comcast 1Gbit service, quick question please

    You do realize there will be no noticeable difference right? 940 is ridiculous as it stands and you will mostly be bottlenecked by other providers when doing downloads, etc.

    WiFi video doorbell recommendations?

    I have been liking the Ubiquiti G4 doorbell, but note it is part of their Protect system (ie you need to setup a device with their NVR controller software). For wireless chimes, I use the HoneyWell wireless chimes and their wired to wireless bridge.

    Networking with Ubiquiti

    Ive been considering trying it. The odd thing to me is the whole UI and approach is a straight copy of Unifi. Seems worth a go

    I’ve got to terminate a lot of ethernet cables.

    Monoprice is the way to go.

    Networking with Ubiquiti

    The protect issue of cameras disconnecting snd losing footage was a bug that is fixed. similarly the UDMP is a buggy mess but getting better. Cloud Key G2 with Unifi APs and a USG is rock solid. agree the stats is a mess, dont use it.

    Best way to have a redundant internet connection at home?

    For simple failover, the Unifi Security Gateway has worked great for me for years.
