This is all good advice, but OP - if you're not a technical person, and it sounds like you're not, don't get a Unifi AP. They're excellent kit, but they require you to setup a management interface on a different computer. Most routers and APs just run their management system onboard, which is much simpler.




Amplifi is a very solid Wifi AP by the same people as Unifi, but it's targeted at the average person, so is very simple to set up. Get that if you're not confident about setting up anything more complex, and as a bonus it will replace the router entirely. I've heard the Amplifi handles up to around 800mbps, so not quite an entire gigabit connection.




(Sorry bignose, I kinda rephrased your post a bit.)

Linux: Is the access point mounted at a decent height central in the house?

Not sure why you bother mentioning ADSL2+ when you are connected to Fibre


If you look at the marketing for that unit, its confusing as hell ;)


I can see why they mentioned it :)


Remember, not everyone is an uber-geek and can read between the lines ;) 

Fair enough point

Got to love marketing people NOT


Good grief, the blurb at says:


"This AC1600 DSL modem router provides a fast VDSL modem for fibre broadband and also works with ADSL connections."


Enormously confusing





It's cause in countries like the UK and Canada (and I suspect others), VDSL get called fibre broadband.
