RunningMan:

Thanks @KiwiSurfer. Presumably you can have groups of 1 AP then, so an SSID can appear on a single AP only?


Yeah you can. I had to battle through this today and figured it out.

Mine wasnt mesh, it seemed to be my 2 vlans I had made as vlan only to allow me to put things with a pi between them and the internet became vlan number 0 which I assume set up multple interfaces untagged or something and that caused the storm. Even a single AP was flooding the network but at a volume that didnt seem to be enough to make things inoperative. Once they provisioned with the updated vlan config where I had deleted that, it stopped the storm and things went to normal.

 

 

If everything went back to Untagged 0 I see how a loop would have occurred, I wonder if the broadcast storm management stopped things from being a lot worse

Wow I am on 6.0.23 now - and yes the comments at 47min around product lifecycle and ubnt just dumping products is scary but my IW-HD-PROs are out of support in Jan and need to decide if I am going to stick with unifi

Aruba Instant On

Don’t get me wrong I like the Unifi gear but my IW AC Pros are less that 2 years old and will be EOL in Jan

Hi, this is a bit concerning, and as someone who has invested quite a bit in the UniFi wireless WAP side of things I really hope at least that stays as it is or improves.

 

Outside of that there is Aruba Instant, and Ruckus unleashed etc but at a slightly higher price point.

 

On the left field is Mikrotik, as many of you may know I am a fan of their routers, their switches i am happy to leave where they are, but I have never really dabbled in their wireless AP product lines, have played with their p2p stuff and with good success, but the inside AP's seem to be dogged with performance issues, and whilst I have not spent any time trying to work out how I would use Capsman I am sure a short few hours would sort that and a cookie cutter approach could be found.

 

Would be interested in others thoughts on Mikrotik or other opitons.

 

Cyril

Aruba Instant On and Aruba Instant rangers are different the Instant On is aimed at the home and SME market, the Instant IAP is aimed at enterprise

I really need to set up a lab with a Mikrotik router with a capsman server so I can get my head around how it works

I've dabbled a little with Mikrotik wifi stuff, but missing settings like DTIM and/or beacon intervals. Pretty much everything else is very configurable though. There's also CAPsMAN for centralised management, but haven't really looked hard at it.

Ah ha, think will be doing the same, then look at adding a capsman cloud instance along side my UniFi one.......... but endless reports of poor wireless through puts worry me, so need to put in the hard yards.

It seems that wifi was a bit of an afterthought with mikrotik, wife's work has a cap ac on their ceiling but their internet is only 50/50 so cant truly test its performance unless I do an iperf to her wired desktop

I have always stuck with my unifi/aruba its just a shame unifi are sunsetting their products so quickly

Hi, hopefully they are only sun setting product lines based on chip sets that are no in their main path of progress, I suspect for the wireless products this is the case, if you are using the preferred product line (at chipset level) then its going to be around for a good time, here's hoping.

A bit of googling tells me this processor has been around since 2011 so maybe I should give ubiquiti a break... just surprised a 2 year old product is using this

I'm with Grandstream for APs since 2017 and OPNsomething for router since this year on a x86 platform or VM. The switch is disputable whatever fits best. I'm not against Ubiquiti, it's their 'policy' only and that seems to become even more worse now. What use of is a shillyshellyshiny H/W and single pane of glass when there is no trust and the question what scary thing comes next?

How can we determine this?

 

When I went down the Unifi path as I had APs already (now on LTS after 6 years) (router/switch/ap), I was looking at mikrotik (following GZ suggestions), but being beginner level of networking, mikrotik looked challenging to configure etc.
