That's a little bit of a loaded question. With 2.4, you'll always have interference regardless of the channel due to the saturation of the frequency itself and the channel overlaps on 20-40mhz channels introduced with Wireless N.

Now for the most important part. Remember that wireless is a two way street. If you would have your AP cranked all the way up to say 30dbm or 1 watt of power (international limit), you are literally going to create self interference for your devices. The AP will, in most cases, over power the client and cause interference.

If you are in an apartment or other highly congested areas, it is actually better for you to do the following:
-Turn down the output power on your AP to help mitigate re-transmissions, dropped packets
- Choose 20mhz band width and not 40mhz
- Move all devices that are data intensive to the 5ghz Channel.

Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is far more important than AP power output. Pay attention to these attributes when installing these APs. It's a juggling act that requires tweaking if you plan on using the 2.4 band for data intensive purposes.

For anything else, stick to the 5ghz band, keep the output power to what you actually need and for anyone getting these APs DO NOT SET THE POWER OUTPUT TO AUTO, doing so leads to dropped connections and headaches.

Way to much information.....sorry about that.

Anyone know the difference between the AC-Lite from the earlier deal (https://www.ebay.com/p/Ubiquiti-N...rmvSB=true) and this one---which is labeled on the eBay site as 'AC-Lite-US'?

The one in the earlier deal's NewEgg-eBay site did not show the item model with "-US" label in it.

I ask because i had ordered the one from earlier.

thanks

EDIT: I found my answer -- https://community.ubnt.com/t5/Uni...-p/1501428

I wonder if i should cancel the previous order (non-US marked one) and grab this one?

The non US version is the same thing plus a few extra frequencies that are not available in the US mode due to regulations. I personally would prefer the Non-US model as it only has more to offer

Previous deal was LR-US based on what was received. Also, some frequencies change when updating the firmware. Ubiquiti might be able to make these US/elsewhere via firmware.

I'm curious about the 802.3af support as well. According to Ubiquity, those with a date code manufacturer after 1638 (around September 2016) [ubnt.com] support the 802.3af PoE spec.

I chatted with B&H, and they offer the 3-pack which also brings it down in price to ~70/unit (free S&H, no tax outside NY/NJ). They have a 30-day return policy that's extended to Jan 31, 2018 for the holiday shopping.

I might just take up the B&H offer since I need 3 units anyway.

I've done it 2 ways, both using PoE:

1. I ran a flat Ethernet cable along the perimeter of the wall, trying to match the color as much as possible. One end connects to the Access point, and the other to the PoE injector that was located near a power outlet. The PoE injector also has another Ethernet cable that connects to a nearby switch.

2. The other unit on the 2nd floor connects from my PoE switch using an Ethernet cable that runs through the attic (more space there). I just drilled a hole in the ceiling where I mounted the access point.

Newegg cancelled my order for no apparent reason a few days ago, so I want to buy from B&H, but I found this review for the AC lite. I definitely don't want over a year old stock.


10/24/2017

B&H Still Selling Old Stock
This product was updated to support 802.3af POE in September of 2016. As of October 2017, B&H is still shipping units from June 2016. If you aren't getting it at a huge discount or sure you will be fine with only passive POE support, consider buying it elsewhere.

Could one use those extra frequencies in the US for "testing" purposes? Would it reduce interference from other 2.4Ghz sources?
