With no bandsteering Mikrotik is pretty pointless for as a wireless AP these days.

 

 

With the Telcos deploying LTE TDD it is only a matter of time until the 2.4 GHz airtime utilisation in urban areas is so high the spectrum could be considered "dead" for public Wi-Fi.

 

Enterprise access points commonly have a 2.4/5 GHz switchable radio and a 5 GHz radio which helps getting around this issue.

I just threw the controller on my linode server and it adopted it within 30 seconds. Must be an issue with my Pi, I'll look into it later. 

 

Thank you all for the suggestions and help! Cheers. 

 

 

If you don't need or want all the monitoring the controller gives you, you can use Ubiquiti android app to set the access point up. 

 

It only allows  you to set up the basics things like SSID, Password, Led on or off. But if you are only using it as an un-managed AP point, that is all you need.

Are the Unifi Lite's portable?

 

If I configure one at home, then can I take it to another town and just plug it in, no further jiggery-pokery required?





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

Sure.

 

If you're using the controller ideally you would want it to be accessible at the new location but that's not essential.

What from? Telco's using crappy RF filtering? Or nasty RF noise from end user devices?

What you will experience is the 2.4 GHz noise floor will rise significantly and users will start reporting that they are experiencing issues associating to 2.4 GHz radios and, when they can, their performance is poor and they experience disconnections.

 

At a tertiary institution affected by this we installed notch filters onto the access points with external antennas and replaced the older access points with internal antennas with newer models that had internal stop filters.

If you did a search of this forum for the term "cheap" how many hits would you get?  You get what you pay for.
