Their design team made it look like a suppository while their engineering team remedied that by including a fan stuck at 2700 rpm. It's like Dyson decided to make a router.

I have 2 i'm returning due to fan noise.

And anyone with the EA version disagreeing, you got lucky. The GA has issues. If you google it they're claiming a firmware fix, but some people have manually lowered the fan speed and it's still loud. They changed something with the general release Frown

BTW, I saw that thread earlier and I got that UDR has a weak wifi. But how about their wifi 6 or 6e APs? Are they similarly underperformed?
I was waiting UDR in stock to use mostly as a console & poe switch with one of their AP rather than main wifi AP since that's the cheapest console in their product line.

I'm looking for alternative POE supported AP (hopefully no pointy antenna for ceiling installation.) but can't find something under $150 like their U6 series.

I was annoyed waiting for the U6 lite and went with the TP-Link EAP610 ($103) instead and it seems pretty great. I'm getting 500-600Mbps with it connected to my old Airport Time Capsule

I don't know if you're missing much. I got a U6 lite.
The signal strength is weaker than the Deco X60 I had gotten from Costco. I intend to try openWRT on the U6 lite as it's supported.

Thanks for suggestion, so that looks like their enterprise line.

*Still* no IKEv2 support?!

I'm waiting for the moment I can retire the pfSense device I have, and be able to manage my network with Unifi interface, but between limited VPN options and lukewarm performance of Ubi devices doesn't look like that moment is arriving anytime soon.

I haven't looked into them. My main focus is high end single point routers, though the past few years have been a roller coaster of higher pricing due to Covid/WFH durring a wifi 5>6 transition.

Good 4x4 routers have historically had a $200 +/- price point. A lot of manufactures have been abusing marketing for stuff that doesn't translate to real world; at least when majority of clients don't perform any better between routers at $100 and $400 in "X" environment.

AX hardware has been getting better on the "high end". Can't really comment on APs, though those don't need to be optimized as much as single point routers for obvious reasons.

Edit: The only logic I can see for buying this is if you intend to connect other Ubiquiti AP's to this thing as a main router. Really the only time it make sense.. But then I'll question why you're spending that much money..

As a single point router, please avoid Smilie

Power output on U6 lite is only 220mW~, but like I indicated above, AP's are generally suppose to be scattered and wired throughout a building for coverage. They don't need to be pushing FCC limits.

For home use, it's more logical to wire backhaul 2-3 "decent" routers (and or mesh units), since it achieves the same goal, but with better/stronger hardware.

I do understand that some people want more control over the UI/SW though. It's not a one size fits all solution.

I've been using a U6-LITE for over a year and it's been fantastic. I just run TX/RX power on the Auto settings and my 1100 sq ft. house has excellent coverage everywhere inside, even around a snaking hallway at the far end of the house that would drop out with another DD-WRT AP I had prior.
The U6-LITE signal even reached outside fairly far enough that I really should consider turning down the power.

Same - this basically ended my time with Ubiquiti. The USG was already a massive disappointment from the jump. This company has been shedding experienced engineers for years and the product line and quality definitely shows it.

I still have all the unifi AP and switches, but got tired of the slow performance on the USG, USG pro, etc, etc, etc, I went to PFSense and have yet to see a reason to go back. with PFSense on an industrial barebone PC I built, I am getting much higher speeds and no issues. Sure I lose the pretty Unifi dashboards...but you can get some pretty good ones open source from PFSense.

I'm running 3x IKEv2 on 3 different UDMPs with 100% uptime. Under advanced settings when creating your VPN you can set pretty much anything.

My tunnels are a mix of other firewall hardware and azure. All IKEv2.

Note I'm using UDMP vs just the UDM, but I would imagine they have the same VPN features.
