Makes a great priced deal on the Archer D9. Some stores seem to throw in a WiFi extender with the D9 though which this site doesn't seem to do. Still, some great deals to be had and as yet, no other retailer has released spring/Easter sale codes to bring prices down to be competitive like this.

Not sure what you mean - mine are hardwired into a 48 port managed poe switch. With regards to placement i gather (although waiting for confirmation) that mine are directional hence the placement. They will mesh but through the LAN

Hi there, looking to improve my signal in the house (currently running vm sh 3 (annoyed) ) and looking for some easier to set up hardware. Have basics on networking but always like to improve so to start with was thinking https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/25470-ubiquiti-us-8-150w/specifications/#content https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/19348-ubiquiti-usg/ https://www.broadbandbuyer.com/products/31252-engenius-eap1250/specifications/#content First of will get just 1 AP to place it on the 1st floors ceiling in the middle of the house and then at some point will put more if needed (cheeky) . Anything to change or replace here needed or it will be just fine? Thank you

AhmadK74

I wouldn't expect a great performance from a mesh with wireless only backbone (i.e when only one AP has wired connection), just because of its nature. Also, instead of 2 APs don't you want to try to install your one somewhere between the roofspace and the basement? Btw, cannot watch the video, says "Connection was reset".. :(

comfysofa

Well, that depends on your own house layout....right now im in the only black spot in my house ( a huge 2ft x 5ft rad right next to me) that for as long as ive known has killed any wireless signal down to literally nothing....currently at 100% signal but, its right above me so id expect it. The dynamic has changed so (from my point of view the old setup to the new one is chalk and cheese) the old system ran the whole shooting match as the crow flies, right in the centre of the house. The new setup is currently one ap at the top (and soon to be) one at the bottom one radiating down the other up. As i said before im more than happy with the new system. Probably didnt warrant a "Hot UK Deal" but, it just works really really well....

Would would you expect to get from a standard router in the rooms you mention?

Is it worth getting a self-encrypting drive? How do I know my computer support it? My computer is HP Proliant Microserver Gen8

djglenn1337

Generally regarded as allot better than the Toshiba's, but don't have any first hand experience myself on them. As for the Ultrastar, has been going good so far in my unraid server.. not an exact science as it depends on where it's installed etc, but is running significantly cooler than my WD Reds, Shucked WD Whites and Seagate EXOS.

Gerry557

I'm going to give this a go. The price rose after this was posted but has come back a bit since then. I don't know how it compares with Toshiba MG Series 14 TB Enterprise Capacity Hard Drive. Hopefully much the same. Stick it in and just let it get on with itself.

lastlaughgiraffe

I remember paying an arm and a leg for a 48mb hdd for my Atari ST and here we are now casually talking about 14TB drives .... where did the time go? ;)

popolou

What you've described is a Raid 01 aka a "mirror of stripes". The result is the exact same as going Raid 10 but you get less fault tolerance. thegeekstuff.com/2011/10/raid10-vs-raid01/ Pops

Hi. I haven't really looked at reporting. I get the Unifi reporting for my access point but not the router. Some areas of the controller application are disabled because I don't have a USG but I can still do everything I need. The ERX has a fully functional management application too, it's just that the systems aren't integrated.

573310

Do you get the same reporting as the USG offers?

Myatu

That's a very important thing you mentioned there. The NAT throughput is otherwise mediocre at 350 mpbs tops. I need load-balancing, so would not likely be able to achieve that number you mentioned with this one ;( I'm hoping the ER4 can, otherwise I will go for the new Draytek...

shonkydonkey

Great router, config can be challenging, if you can roll your own iptables you'll be fine...

Happy with mine, with a wap AC as my wireless ap

What're the pros of getting this vs using the standard isp modem-router, or vs getting a third party modem-router combo? Is there a performance benefit to getting separate modem and routers?

meridiusuk

that's turning the WIFI off yes but that's not putting the hub into modem only mode as you cannot do this with bt hubs its not the same thing meaning you will have problems with mesh systems. more info for you quote "Absolutely cannot use as a modem only. You can turn off DHCP and wifi but it will still be routing and natting." https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Devices/Smart-Hub-6-Bridge-Modem-mode/td-p/1906815#:~:text=Re: Smart Hub 6 - Bridge/Modem mode,-Go to solution&text=Absolutely cannot use as a,still be routing and natting.

brendanhickey

This is my mesh system I live in a block of flats and share my mesh with a friend in who lives in the next block which is about 300m away and going through 4 different flats.. I am surprised it's works but he can stream from his flat. My bt speed is quite is 50mp download so I get much better than my estimate speeds.

There are 4 different model variations of the HC520. The one inside the WD Black D10 is the worst of the 4.

ahenners

That doesn't seem that great? You could have had brand new 12TB HC520 with a 3 year warranty for £180 inc. shucked from WD Black D10 drives in the past couple of weeks.

malhal

NAS drives have a feature to work more reliably when used in a hardware RAID set in a server (e.g. in a data center). By hardware RAID I mean the server motherboard has a dedicated RAID chip. 90% of consumer NAS do not have this, they have software emulated RAID so there is no benefit.

tqmirza

If that’s the case then what’s so special about a ‘nas’ drive compared to any other drive?

malhal

If it has a case fan like a PC then yeh. 7200rpm can get toasty.

Not sure it would be worthy of a new deal, but the AFi-R is at a pretty decent price at Lambdatek for £124.82.

Postal

Heat added decent find. I would expect the older mesh systems to start dropping in price with wifi6 and the next gen versions being released.

pauljamesbusby

I think, considering the difference in pricepoint (especially at this price point), the reviews are still very favourable to the product. Another interesting point, and one relevant to me, the Instant sets remote node can do Eth backhaul, whilst the HD mesh points cannot... swings and roundabouts given the lesser radio it has, but for 95% people the AC1200 2x2 shoudl be more than enough. The AFi-R (which is the bigger standalone device) is around about £130+, and the AFi-INS-R (which is the standalone Instant device) is £89+. You can keep on adding these standalones to the kit, but you cant combine kits...

Demon_Eyes

Yeah, but your kit is the AFi-HD.... the reviews for this particular bit of kit (which is a somewhat cut down version) don't seem very good in comparison.

Are you using these two kits separately or have you managed a way to merge them together? I have a second one on order but have just read that they would not work together which is extremely disappointing.

dwl99

Quick update - I got mine delivered on Tuesday & am extremely happy with it. The base unit is very stylish & Apple-looking and the mesh devices are fairly unobtrusive. Connection speeds are amazing and it has been rock solid so far. It would be nice if they also had a web interface for fiddling about with the settings but the app is actually very good. The only problem I have had is that 2 Sonoff switches out of 5 have refused to connect.

dwl99

You can get an old UAP (2.4GHz only) on ebay for around 30 quid so it's a cheap and easy way to increase coverage where the 5GHz band isn't too important.

daver77

Cheers didn't know that.

dwl99

You can run the Unifis in wireless repeater mode - I have a UAP connected wirelessly to an AC-LITE, it was pretty easy to set up via the controller.

I use mapped drive as it's easier for wife and kids to use. I have a full back up on a removable drive done once a week. And a second removable back up of the really important stuff. E.g documents and photos. Overkill but worst case I nuke computers and diskstation and lose very little

k0pp0

Cannot recommend synology enough. I've had a ds210j for about 6 years and it's superb for all the above reasons. took the time to clean about 2 inches of dust off the fans and it still runs quiet.

lcassey

Don't have it as a mapped drive in that case, most ransomware will encrypt that as well! Use ftp or make sure you have an offline backup of this too!
