Hi all. I’ve recently moved into a new house here in the UK, it’s a new-build home and thankfully the builder has installed CAT6 in almost every room. I had been looking at upgrading my existing ASUS Mesh system which has served me well over the last 6 years or so when I stumbled upon a YouTube review and installation of Alta labs. AP’s.
Obviously, I’d been looking at Unifi gear for a while, but the stock was proving difficult to find and also the price was not an easy pill to swallow.
As soon as I saw the offering from Atla Labs I was in, placed my order for 2 X AP6 and the upgrade has been amazing. Much better speed, fewer dropouts and of course some nice sleek APs compared to the black Asus routers I had running my old mesh. It’s a humble install, but it does what I need and I’m very happy with it. I’ve mounted my APs with spacers behind the mounting bracket to help with airflow/cooling as when I had them laid on a table for testing they seem to get very hot. I’ve included a few photos to show it all off
The main network is mounted inside a cupboard which houses the underfloor heating manifold, consumer unit etc, I’ve mounted 1 of the AP’s inside this cupboard but it might move to the outside of it if/when I’m allowed. The other AP is in the spare bedroom and gives full coverage of the garden and garage,
Inside the cupboard (don’t judge me)
