At home I have 4th gen Airport Extreme in the basement. The coverage and throughput is really weak. I can stream SD content on Apple TV on the first floor OK but areas of second floor get no signal. If I'm outside the house as well I will at times have weak signal (to stream audio). It is really difficult to run ethernet in my house. The house has been renovated with audition about 20 years ago and I have a single cat6 running from basement to the attic and can bring that down to the 2nd floor master bedroom (even running from attic to the MB is tough) (lots of things in this house make no sense). I hear (but never used) Ubiquiti is a underdog. I've used Aruba controller and WAPs at my last job. Their gui was clunky but doable once you spent some time in it. I'm not looking for anything fancy at home. Just a home network and guest network. Portal would be a bonus ;-) How are the Ubiquiti at home? I'm looking for the N model. I think our house is 2300 sq feet plus basement. I'd like to have coverage in the house and outside. Do the WAPs mount facing down from ceiling or can they be mounted (sideways) on a wall?
