I blew up


Thatís pretty cool.

I can also vouch for my UDM-Pro being rock solid and easy to configure. I run a bunch of VLANs and containers and multiple SSIDs from the AP AC lite I bought with it fwiw.

We have 4 people in the house streaming stuff regularly for work, school and entertainment and Iíve never had a complaint. I was worried when I first bought it, but I guess my use case is pretty simple or Iíve just not run into the issues some have.

I did turn off automatic firmware updates on everything. Thereís a new firmware version 1.8. Might upgrade soon since Iím on 1.7.2

Well hell. I guess old Tumnus is just a loverman by trade.


So two years ago on the advice of this thread I picked up an Archer C7 and then set it up as an access point, wired to my Edgerouter. Worked fine.

At some point recently, it stopped being able to connect to the internet. I've reset it a few times, I can see the router fine both over the wired and wireless connection, it looks to be configured according to TP-link's instructions for setting it into access point mode. It just won't connect to the internet (either for itself, for example fetching GMT, or by letting things connect to wifi and get an IP address). I have two access points on either end of the home so didn't really notice this one crapping out until I saw that the signal strength was rear end right on top of it.

Am I missing something?

Thinking about it more, you could also look at an mgig switch with some 10 gig uplinks -- it's sorta the way access points are headed, and it's quite a bit cheaper. Unfortunately I don't think Ubiquiti's really there yet. You'd still need to figure out how to route a 2 gbit connection.

It's very expensive for a residential product ($320/mo + $1k install) but I think that's actually a lot cheaper than what we pay for our single 1/1 fiber line at the office.

Yeah, $700 is pretty common. It's a good deal.

What steps should I be taking to troubleshoot poor network connection on my end? It's almost certainly not on my end but I just want to do my due dilligence.

They ran fiber to my building a month or so ago and I immediately scheduled an install, which was done today. I was on 100 Mbps VDSL previously. After the install guy left I was getting 300-400 down and maybe 150 up, which while not what I was expecting, was a hell of a lot better than the 80 down/up I was getting on VDSL. Tonight the speed test is showing around 30-50 down which leads me to believe they've overexpanded/oversold their infrastructure. Is there anything I should be looking at on my end?

Yeah, an apartment building. I'm connecting via wifi (new wifi card with the antennae on top of the case.). Router is about 20 feet away, but there is also a pretty thick concrete wall between me and the router. I plugged my laptop into the router this morning, but it only got about 150 down - it's a lovely laptop.

I think I've spotted your problem

Look at buying a power line network extender or something to get around the wall

https://www.amazon.com/Powerline-Co...twork-Adapters/

2.4ghz will penetrate concrete (sometimes) but it's not really designed to do that, which is probably why your signal sucks

5ghz absolutely will not penetrate concrete, if you're getting any 5ghz signal, it's due to luck that it's bouncing around a corner and not being totally absorbed by a wall

If you want to check your network connection, plug a wired ethernet cable into the router, and the other end into your laptop, turn off your laptops wifi and then do a speed check. Then go buy a mesh networking router or powerline adapter or something. If you get the mesh networking router, it should be line of sight between the current router, and the other side of the concrete wall. Be aware that only high end routers and newest routers offer any kind of mesh networking, I'm not familiar with your router model so you'll have to research it

I don't think it's that. I just dragged the router into the hallway so it had direct line of sight of my PC and speeds didn't improve.

I'm back up to 280 this morning which leads me to believe they've just massively oversubscribed the line.

Also, $199 for a doorbell that someone may take a baseball bat to for lulz.

Don't most delivery services have the ability to have special instructions to deal with things like gates, like give the code or password or whatever? I don't know if gates are smart enough to have one-time use codes or if you would need to rotate the code manually, but it seems like an easier way to accomplish what you're looking for. You could still have video monitoring so you could review it after the fact, now that I think about it.

I am only very recently anti-UI. It was that stupid loving buttplug router not being usable even as a dumb switch unless you login, combined with Ubiquiti giving people a ONE MONTH WARNING that their old video products were about to be deprecated that set me against them.

I still maintain that if you can't bootstrap it from ground zero while disconnected from the internet, you don't actually own it.

I wouldn't even consider myself "anti-UI" just yet, but they're definitely on two strikes, and I'm not about to drop almost $1000 on hardware on two strikes.

So I think you may want to look at Danalock? That should get you ability to trigger door strike via app but itís all pretty convoluted and Iím not sure about any of the control mechanisms being weatherproof. And then you have the communication aspect on top of it.

I spent the weekend digging a trench to run ethernet to my home office (no attic access, ask me how I discovered that)

Now I'm getting 950/35 mbit speeds for superior posting speed (posting quality remains unaffected)

I also had Cox run a tech out to diagnose my intermittent internet connectivity drops. He tried several things (including pulling a new line from the street) and told me my Motorola MB8600 was acting up, and tried an Arris modem off his truck. Worked great. He also told me that they were doing node splits in my area, and that my home is on the roadmap to eventually get a split with 10 or fewer addresses.

i'm installing AT&T fiber and my area has rolled out their new gateway - it has the ONT built into it in order to prep them for 5gb service (which is stupid)

Cons: the bypass I was planning on using for AT&T is being depreciated. People are reporting that even with old hardware they're rolling out authentication.

Pros: the new gateway seems to be great, with no realistic limits on the NAT table. Also, they over provision it so with a 10gbE SFP+ into the UDM-Pro I can get 1.2-1.3 gbps up and down. Which is neat.

I have an Archer C8 and it has been doing well for me - every time I think about replacing it I can't find a good reason to.

The C7 is a little older (and the C8 isn't exactly new) but the C8 has significantly more robust hardware. There is also a C9 out there which looks like pretty much a slightly upgraded C8.

On the 5ghz band I get 867mhz of bandwidth between my computer and the router, and it has been handling two people working from home, videoconferencing, streaming 2K video, and everything else just fine. I assume it would stream 4K video fine if it needed to. Range has been good but I also have a fairly small place so it is hard to gauge.

I've been pretty happy with the TP-Link products I've owned in general.

I'm trying to go off of your recommendation, but I also see that C9 doesn't have a Wifi 6, which sounds like something I would want. This has lead me to believe that the AX10 is what I'm looking for (correct me if I am wrong). Would I see any benefit from upgrading to the Ax20 instead? I don't have gigabyte internet speeds. I have a 200MB plan which is plenty since all I use it is for streaming and playing some games. But if the quad processor will mean better performance and better coverage, I'll gladly pony up the cash.

I am probably going to buy one of those modems pending recommendations from this thread, and a wifi extender to cover upstairs. Does this sound like a good plan? My friend had talked up his mesh network, but it looks like if I get Google Nest Wifi, it'll basically record what I say 24/7, which is super creepy, which has made me rule it out.

As someone who knows absolute poo poo all about how routers work or networking in general, I'm having a hell of a time not falling for all the marketing gimmicks, so I'm grateful for all your help. It doesn't help that they all have really confusing model names and different price points. Is the C8 the same as the AX10? Why are they like this.

I need some APs. Seems silly but mainly unfortunate that I'm going to invest in them now with Wifi 6 approaching, but I need them.

Do I need the AC Pro over the Lite? Was going to get two for 2900sq ft. One upstairs attached to ceiling on one side of house, one in basement on window sill on opposite end. I have gigabit internet.

Also, I see switches are on sale for Prime Day. Thinking of getting a 16 port. Don't need PoE since the APs have injectors right? Don't think I'd get any future PoE devices like cameras since I'd just go wireless there.

Gf texts while I'm at work this afternoon and says internet is down, first time since we set up with this ISP end of july. I get home and find the coax I somewhat dubiously ran was shot. The modem end of the cable just...fell apart? Luckily there was a run of cable underneath the house from the past ISP which I commandeered and everything is fine. Except after an hour or two, suddenly IP conflicts and nothing works. Router reset doesn't work. Had to reset the modem and all, then it worked. Until it happened again a couple hours later. Just resetting my old C7 worked this time, but how long til it happens again? I had decided to put a pause on my Ubiquiti plans but if this poo poo starts happening again I may have to go forward with it.

One thing I'm wondering about, the modem is here in my office. I have an 8 port basic switch that my printer, desktop, NAS & laptop dock connect to. Then I have a cable from the router out to the living room to another 8 porter where all the entertainment junk connects to. I've thought about just mounting a switch under the house, but then I'd have to run a bunch of cabling up through the floor and that doesn't make sense either does it? My current setup kinda makes sense, I just need a better router, or at least a modern/dedicated AP.

Technology naming conventions are the worst. The C8 and AX10 should be different as the former is wireless AC and the latter presumably wireless AX.

I can tell you my thoughts on the other questions, but I can't pretend to be an expert. Wireless AX/Wifi 6 seems fine, but is engaging in a certain amount of future-proofing. Wireless AC/Wifi 5 is still dominant, and going to the newest standard is going to represent a higher upfront investment with lower returns over time. My Internet speed has a theoretically maximum of 150mbps, which I never hit, so wifi bandwidth on AC isn't a concern. On the rare occasions I transfer stuff inside my network I get 867mbps on the 5ghz band, and like 480mbps on the 2.4ghz band, and it's fine. Of all the wireless devices I have in my house, none are wireless AX - the newest are wireless AC, and I still have some N and G devices around. Range hasn't been a problem, and I have a wireless extender on-hand if I needed one.

My Archer C8 has been handling two people working from home (who are sometimes simultaneously in video meetings), a wireless printer, like 6 phones, a Roku, a Chromecast, and multiple computers at the same time. The only caveat I feel I should include is nobody is streaming 4k video, but other than that it is a relatively high workload. Maybe there has been a few hitches when two of us are videoconferencing at the same time, like some stutters, but that could honestly be the other side having crappy Internet service - if it has happened it hasn't been obvious.

If you need faster in-network transfer speeds, handle a lot of internal network traffic, or get Internet service faster than the available wireless speeds then AX makes sense. For my purposes AC more than meets my needs and I haven't seen the need to replace my Archer C8.

I have an Archer A7 (AC1750) and having some issues. Itís in a house with about 5 PCís, three phones, a tablet, and a couple chromecasts/fire sticks. Nothing is connected to it through a wired connection. Modem is a Surfbord SB6183. No NAS.

The devices all seem connect to the router with no issues. However, quite often for PCís, they will not have internet access (but they will have the wireless connection established) or the internet will hang until you disconnect and reconnect to the network. I donít think itís an internet issue as when this happens on one computer, others will be working fine. It seems worst when one device is using a lot of traffic like video conferencing. Itís worth noting that very rarely are all devices using lots of data at once, often they are just sitting there idle,but when that happens there are usually issues. Other issues are huge ping spikes in games.

I have updated to the latest firmware, changed wireless channels, and restarted the router, nothing seems to affect it.

Should this router be able to handle this stuff? If not, what should I upgrade to?

First thing I would do is to try wiring one of the failing devices during an outage. If it works its a wireless issue, which could still be the router getting overloaded. Wifi load is a combination of throughput and associations (aka devices on the wifi). Sounds like you are at 10 devices. Are your tv's themselves on the wifi? Reduce one or the other to increase throughput. Buy a 100ft ethernet cable and string it along the floor. Unplug your chromecasts (etc) and see if it helps.

Is anyone torrenting? If so stop. A zillion tiny frames is a potential for overload.

Can you move your router somewhere so that you can hardwire some devices? I'm surprised with that many devices none of them are hardwired.

Make sure you identify where the cable is coming in to your unit from. You'll want to install a MoCA filter there which should improve the signal and also it would not let your network leak anywhere else the coax connects.

I'm moving into a new house at the beginning of next month and ideally I'd have a fiber connection. The only place that offers fiber in my area is CenturyLink but they only offer up to 30mbps at my address. Strange I think, so I plug in some addresses of my neighbors. They all have 940mbps. I hop on their online chat and try to figure out why, but it's useless. I can get internet through xfinity cable if need be, but what I'm trying to figure out is why do all of the neighboring houses in the entire area have access to high speed fiber except mine?
