We use their products (WiFi hubs and security cameras) in our medium business and they work flawlessly.

Whilst I think they are expensive for personal use, they do work really well and you barely have to touch them once set up.

Excellent find for an excellent router (I have 2 of those and one of the Instant for travel). Yes, they are indeed expensive but you get what you pay for and heat given for this price but I will wait until the Alien is available in the UK.

Yes, I just bought my second. I wish I didn’t have bought the meshpoints, they are not so fast and I believe I can’t sell them as they are hard coded to the main router right?

Yes, the mesh point are unfortunately hard coded to the whole kit but you can add a second standalone router to the kit with no problems. The Alien has no mesh points but has a stronger signal and would be a good replacement for the kit if you have devices that use wi-fi 6.

We have rolled there products out all over Europe and seen a vast improvement in reliability.

I have also seen some the biggest hotel chains have adopted them as I have been travelling around, flooded down corridors to give flawless wireless.

Utter nonsense. I work with large enterprise class products, and large (worldwide) IT suppliers. I'm frequently in and out of offices and i've seen Ubiquiti deployed internally for their own staff in their delivery sites and DC's.
Thinking about getting a dream machine to get all in one router/cloudkey/WiFi etc but might wait for the pro. Would prefer the black version of the DM though.

I do prefer rackmount gear though and separates so it's an annoying decision at the moment especially with wifi6 thrown into the mix.

The range on these is superb but would obviously be highly affected by your particular home environment in terms of size, obstacles and signal interference...etc. The beauty of these is that you can add other units (other routers or dedicated mesh points to cover any dead spots if needed. These devices are for heavy use and cope with a large number of connections and at wide distance when compared to the widely available cheaper mesh devices.

True! I will go now with 2 amplifi hd standalone units with the second one doing Ethernet backhaul to see if it will give me 500Mbps at least on every room :). The WiFi meshpoints are not so fast, can get around 300Mbps maximum.
Felipe.Lopes01/12/2019 09:55

Go with Amplifi Alien.


I did kind of dismiss the amplifi range as being more consumer orientated, I may be wrong as I haven't looked into them that much.

Ideally could do with a dream machine which has dual wan and WiFi6. Not sure if the alien as dual wan but I'm guessing not.

Might just stick with pfsense router and upgrade to WiFi 6 AP's when they become more relevant.

Thanks had a nighthawk r7000 for a few years but noticed performance deteriorating significantly. Not sure if that was a firmware update I did, I’ve tried checking for interference. Ordered
One confusing thing about the brand is the sheer amount of different add-ons. I purchased one on a whim to try. What will it need to mesh the house?

How do you intend to use your new AmpliFi and in which mode (DHCP as a 2nd NAT, PPPoE mode or as Bridge)? I use mine in Bridge mode as I have a very feature-rich Draytek modem/router sitting behind the AmpliFi but does not have the radio power that the AmpliFi kit enjoys.
Can anybody provide advice for my situation?

Router:virgin superhub 3, 500mb broadband. Positioned downstairs, front room.

Next door's back garden has a large electricity pylon in the back garden. We get very patchy to non existant wifi in the whole rear of the house.

Upstairs rear is where I have my PC, it's connected via a gigabit homeplug. I could get a better one but it currently only pulls 70mb down (36 up).

SO there's two problems. Crap wifi and the need for wired internet in the rear upstairs bedroom. Next to the bedroom is a roof space above a garage.

I want to buy something today. A router to piggyback off the superhub and a mesh system, with some hardwired ethernet to the rear bedroom?

Would this router be a good buy or a router/mesh combo such as Google wifi? I need around 4 ethernet ports on the router for wired connections downstairs.

Maybe you could get a MW6-3 Tenda kit (they work with Ethernet or not) or 1 Amplifi HD home system + 1 Amplifi HD standalone doing backhaul ethernet if money is not the issue...

Edit: if you need the 4 ports, start with 2 amplifi HD standalones. If the connection is still poor in one place that doesn’t have Ethernet point, buy one or more meshpoints, they are strong!
Edited by: "Felipe.Lopes" 1st Dec 2019
@zorbathegeek you could buy 2 Amplifi HD standalone and two meshpoints in separate, first you install just the standalone units and if it’s still poor in one place you put a wireless MeshPoint. If still needed, you use the second wireless one. You return what you don’t need.

Completely agree with Felipe. Start with x2 of these standalone routers using ethernet backhaul in between the units and this will very likely eliminate all you problems. You can then add mesh points only if needed.

Sorry guys but never read anything about these - if just needing a stronger WiFi signal at home throughout my house (3 floors) would this be a better option than a mesh system setup? Or would I need a couple of these or add ons to this? Also are they easy plug n play? Many thanks

Probably the easiest to plug and play as even a screen it has. About your setup, it would be great if you have cables on the 3 floors, but even if you don’t, the best setup is probably to have 3 standalone units, 2 using wireless to reach the main router (main amplifi hd)...

Yeah as a bridge too, dead easy to set up?

Super easy. It will set up as DHCP by default and you can easily then just change it within the app to bridge.
Still the same price, no need to expire.
