It's not really something to do for the average person, I work in IT (Setup Sonicwalls and Meraki networks) and have setup a ubiquity AP over a friends house and I still have this ASUS RT-AC3200 in my house. There is a youtube video of the ubiquiti setup here [youtube.com]

You would need a ubiquiti wireless access point from here [amazon.com] such as this one [amazon.com] for $60

You would ALSO need a router such as this [amazon.com] for $60.

So about $120.....Then you gotta put your whole network together. Good luck!

I just setup a ubiquiti ap ac lite... Took less than 5 minutes. Download load the UniFi app, connect the app to your router, scan the qr code, and setup network name for 2.4 and 5 bands along with password, and you are set. All from your phone. Enjoy.

Not apple to apple. This router is tri-band with powerful signal, $60 AP you listed is N only.

I agree but he was talking about range. An AC access point would run you about $80 [amazon.com] still wouldn't have quite the speeds but would be closer and dual band. Personally I still prefer my Asus RT-ac3200 due to its simple webpage setup, my buddy's system that I setup has an application that needs to be installed on a device and then that is used to configure the wireless access point and i reformatted that device that was configured and had to resetup the software to talk to the AP to update its firmware, kinda a PITA but doable.

Actually it is something the average person can do. Almost all commercial networking equipment is plug and play these days with little user interaction. Any specific settings could easily be found online.

We're not talking about route announcements or trunk modes.

Also, the average person could probably figure out a SonicWall or Meraki setup. Relax Zerocool.
