Looks pretty nice but man that's expensive. Would need 2 also for small home. I also figure external large antenna would cover more than internal flat antenna. Love the touchscreen and data from ubiquiti tho

I have one that covers my entire 1700 sq ft home with it being down stairs, 5ghz , and full strength on bars. At first i was having issues with it getting gig speeds but that got fixed in one of the updates. Now I am having issues getting anything faster, wirelessly, then 400mbps.(they told me I should be getting higher than 700+)

This router is supposed to have a MUCH better coverage than AmpliFi Instant model with 2000 sq ft range. The Alien with the mesh extension is supposed to cover about 20000 Sqft! So I am assuming unless you have a very large home with over 4000 sq ft area, just this router should suffice.

I had similar issues with another wifi router...First i reset the modem and then reset wireless router and then set it up. Now i get close to 900 mbps (have a gigabit package)

Around 850 Mbps and that's within 10 feet, after 10 feet this drops sharply and at 40 ft and out loses more than half which is a huge drop compared to other Wifi 6 routers.

More importantly no 160MHz support and no dedicated backhaul.

Last I checked the VPN teleport was only for mobile devices, not computers, did this change?
