To folks who are new to TP-Link's Omada, it basically a clone of Ubiquiti's Unifi (prosumer/enterprise networking equipment)

Its ecosystem includes a router (you can use your existed router), a controller (a must need; which is used to manage and adopt all APs and switches, and it can be self-hosted), switches, and access points. Additionally, Ubiquiti also has Protect line which is CCTV.

To Dealfinder2012: yes and no. Yes because you can get multiple Omada's APs; Wifi 5, Wifi 6 all work together as one seamless system. No, I have not heard about Omada running as a stand-alone So you cannot hook up to your existed system and use it as a range extender. However, you can hook it up to the router and set it up as a stand-alone AP.
https://help.ui.com/hc/en-us/arti...YG89AX9VYB

To ispeed : AP-LR is a really really old AP. Since you already have Unfi's equipment (you have AP-LR, I guess you already have USG and Cloud Key), depending on your budget it is better to get a used AP-AC-LR if your range is enough. If not, you can buy 2 used AP-AC-PRO for $60/each on subreddit r/homelabsales or r/hardwareswap or craigslist, etc. Resell value of Ubiquiti's equipment is still high, almost always. You must check their speed, both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz, and range cater to your need. If you changed to TP-Link's Omada, you would need to get more equipment anyway.


To BuyMoreChuck: no, you cannot use it to piggyback off another router's signal to extend it. It is a whole ecosystem, you can add as many APs from different Omada's models together as you need. That is how they make $$$ and called it ENTERPRISE.

I have UDM Pro, Wifi 6 Lite AP, and NanoHD. Purchased a Omada's switch and run their software controller in a VM, Unifi is still better. Not being bias, their APs and switches are rock solid. However, the router is kinda trash. Let alone their breach, search it for more info.

thanks michrech for clarification. I will edit this to avoid anyone else misunderstanding.
This is absolutely not true. The TP-Link EAP series APs can be used without the Omada controller. You lose the ability to configure multiple APs simultaneously, and possibly some other advanced features. I have two EAP225's running in my mothers home, stand alone, without any issues.

UniFi cannot "piggyback" off another router's signal. Some of the UniFi APs do support wireless uplink, but it only works with other UniFi APs (as far as I understand the feature).

Good deal for a powerful access point. Just annoyed that I ordered one yesterday from Amazon at the $60 price point.

Interesting. I was thinking about replacing an older Ubiquiti AP (AP-LR) that seems to randomly reset itself 1-2 per week. While this is not long range, I'm wondering if I should just buy 2 and still come out cheaper than replacing with a AP-AC-LR (updated access point from Ubi) with possibly better coverage. I have 1 on the main level and spotty coverage at the opposite side of house on the lower level. I have a wired Ethernet port down on that side of the house already and I could plug this directly into that ...

I am wondering the same thing. Can I use this to piggy back off another router's signal to extend it?

What would you use this for?

You can use it in TP-Link's Omada SDN. Basic is: get a router ER605, connect it to one or more of this AP. Manage the network through a software controller:
The EAP Controller is used to manage multiple EAPs intensively.
Or, you can buy an Omada hardware controller, and manage the APs through its interface.

Doable if you replace the FW with Openwrt, then you could use one radio to connect to the source, and the other to retransmit it.

So why buy this in the first place?🤔 You can buy wifi signal extender. TP-LINK has a couple on sale right now, and other brands. It's kinda defeat the purpose of buying the Omada's line, isn't it?

Simply answering the question, but I agree.
Then again I wouldn't buy anything that haven't got some kind of
3rd party fw support.

Normal consumer should not bother with these "enterprise" equipment. Unless, you have a bunch of IT equipments, servers running VM, etc. That why I mentioned reddit because most of them has a homelab, and they circulate these stuff around. By the way, I agree on the 3rd party fw. Manufacturers bottleneck fw can limit your hardware cap.
