    Unifi Access Points - UAP Pro vs UAP-AC

    Morning all, been mooching about at Unifi access points, what can I say, I like them!? My original purchase was for a Unifi UAP-LR, then I acquired a Unifi UAP-Pro, looking at some more UAP-Pros but they are like £150 - £160 for a single but the UAP-AC's are like £20- £30 cheaper...

    Edge Router Lite vs Edge Router X

    Anyone have any quick and simple info regarding the major differences between these two? Aside from the POE capabilities of the ERX and more ports, it looks like the ERX (better) is cheaper than the ERL (less ports and no POE). I wish UBNT had a comparison tool on their site but they don't...

    UBNT ERL and Untangle in bridge mode, a few Q`s...

    Following on from my previous post about edge router power consumption, I ended up biting the bullet on the ERL. So far it`s been fantastic, and so has Untangle considering I`ve switched it from Router mode to Bridge mode, it all went well... Anyway, to my questions.... I`m currently...

    Anyone have a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter 8...and a Kill-A-Watt meter?

    I have searched, but can`t seem to find what I`m looking for... Anyone with said device put it on a kill-a-watt yet? Datasheet on UBNT site indicates `Max. Power Consumption` of 40 Watts, but my lowly D525 Dual 1.8Ghz Atom box, running Untangle only draws a lowly 19 Watts. Anyone have...

    Unifi access points, how to move them to another controller

    OK, for the love of my sanity can someone please advise on how I can move 2 access points from one controller to another? I have tried for most of the afternoon/evening to accomplish this. 1x UAP-LR and 1x UAP-Pro. From controller v3.2.1 to controller v3.2.1 from one WHS to another WHS...

    Untangle web cache not caching Windows Updates?

    Hi all, bit stumped by this but I currently have the Web Cache add-on from Untangle but it certainly isn`t caching Windows updates. It does cache some stuff but definitely not the windows updates which was the primary reason for me paying extra for it. I do a lot of repairs/rebuilds for...

    Fireworks inside UPS? Or maybe not...

    Friend of mine handed me a baby APC 350 VA UPS and said see what you can do with that. Eminating from the UPS is the remnants of the smell of the magic smoke escaping from something fundamental to its operation. Upon dismantling I find that other than the scorch marks surrounding the immediate...

    Ok, at home I still use a 192.168.1.xxx DHCP range, it came from my early networking days when I didn't know any better. Now what I'm hoping for is for this to go nice and easy and as straight forward as possible. I have, with Dash's help, sorted my openVPN with Untangle, and have also...

    Buffalo NAS (I know, I know) and RAID 1

    I have a Buffalo Linkstation Quad with 4x 1TB disks in it, they are configured into 2x RAID 1 arrays of 1TB each, giving me a total of 2TB Storage. My question is, is 2x RAID 1 arrays considered `safe` from a redundancy point of view? I`m toying with the idea of a QNAP ts-419u+ -->>...

    Free upgrade from ISP prompt some questions RE: IPCop vs PFSense

    HI all, After hearing some rumours about my ISP (Virgin Media) and some upcoming speed boosts, I started pondering my hardware. Currently I have 30/3 from Virgin and I recently hear from them telling me I`ll be stepping up to 60/6 (I`m assuming the upstream boost). This led me to...

    Ubiquiti Unifi Questions...

    Hi all, Well first off, I stumped up the extra cash for the Unifi-LR and so far I`m glad I did. I don`t think there is a single corner of the house now where I don`t get full strength signal on most, if not all devices, and if it isn`t full strength, it`s only one step down. Good call...

    Hi all, OK the time has come for me to at least start to think about wireless N. The number or N capable devices is starting to increase and so with more wireless clients the whole 54G thing is becoming painful. My requirements are: to be able to have a MAC filter to be able to use...

    Supermicro 5015a-ehf

    OK, I`m all set to upgrade my old Compaq IPCop to a much better, neater and more powerful system (the 5015a-ehf from Supermicro) but two main problems are hindering me... The first is availability, trying to source this system in the UK is a nightmare, and the second is that when I do find...
