Thanks. I just bought the lite access point not long ago and like it but I wanted even further range. Hopefully this does that considering the name Smilie

Yup. I can attest to this thing having amazing range.

Which ubiquiti router works best with this for a home setup? Looking to replace my netgear nighthawk as I have to reset it often even after trying different firmware.

I haven't set it up yet, but I got the USG (Unifi Security Gateway) and cloud key. I'm sticking with Unifi for most of my planned setup, which should offer the most control. It won't be as easy as a nighthawk (Love my nighthawk!!), but it should be a lot easier than configuring the Edgerouters and does offer a decent GUI.

I use the EdgeRouter Lite and it works great.

I use the USG with mine on 1G fiber. It's right at the threshold for that connection. I have to disable traffic shaping or it bottlenecks the connection.

However... For any home it should be more than adequate. The edgerouters are a little cheaper and a little faster... But they're a pain to configure.

(I also highly recommend a cloud key or running the controller on a synology or something on 24/7. The DPI and metrics are quite in depth)

I have a R7000 and Xvortex firmware is solid.

What do you get for effective range and where is it mounted (multi level home, basement, etc)?

One per floor in a cascading fashion would probably give you really good coverage if you have a large home

Is this what I would want for running multiple access points with same SSID? (Mesh network?) I have an Edge router X I have not setup yet but have a large area I'd like to cover for wifi

Thanks. Split level house is smaller at 900sf/level, but upstairs is vaulted and not conducive to mounting. Not sure what I will do.
