Jase2985:

would a right angle RJ45 for in it to make it lower profile? or if you mounted it almost flush and had the cable connection go up into the roof. Thats what i would like.



I’m sure it would allow the gap to be reduced somewhat, but I imagine part of the reason they’re like that is simply to provide some passive cooling: they can generate a bit of heat, I’ve found. (Why they couldn’t have thought of the aesthetics at the same time, I’m not sure!)

I also noticed one of the Grandstreams I’ve just sold had a bit of heat discolouration on the rear - they are designed to sit incredibly close to their mounting surface, which could be a disadvantage in terms of (over)heating.

You can buy white mounting points as well.


No too ugly, but, not as low profile / unobnoxious as the E400 etc


 


 


 



Huh, I did not see those! Certainly a better look.

@jonathan18 @Jase2985 I have got an almost flush wall mount design I made - you do need to use a low profile Ethernet cable (eg crimped without a boot) or something that can bend like the Ubiquiti patch cables so may suit better.

 

I printed my test pieces in Black PETG to better handle the heat of the access point itself (they do get rather hot) but have printed a number of mounts in White PLA+ also.

 

 

I believe the reason for the mounts being a bit away from the wall is due to the heat the access points produce - they do get much hotter than the Grandstream or Ubiquiti AP's. Basically the bottom side of the AP is a heatsink and you have to factor this in with any mount you put it on.

Just be aware that these AP's (or at least all the ones I got - and I assume all stock will be similar manufacturing dates) are from the first batch of 315's that have a known manufacturing fault with the RJ45 port onto the PCB. Be very careful putting pressure on the Ethernet connector if you don't want to kill the AP.

I have one of these that is faulty but these should theoretically be covered by the Aruba lifetime warranty. I just need to find time to call HPE to find out what the process is for replacement.

How did the replacement process go, or am I asking way too soon?

WPA3 - cloud only feature?

 

When I first set up the access points I was using trial of the cloud feature (aruba central) and set them up through that. At that time I was seeing WPA-3 being used by my devices. Since then, the trial has finished and the devices have reverted to locally managed. I am now seeing only WPA-2 being used by my devices that were previously using WPA-3.

 

The encryption option shown on the screen is WPA3_SAE and looking at the config it is shown as opmode wpa3-sae-aes.

 

Does anyone else have WPA3 running on a locally managed access point? If so, was it always locally configured or has it gone from cloud to locally managed?

Super simple. Lodged an RMA online around 1pm and had the RMA approved and courier tracking number for the replacement (sent as an advanced RMA) within 90 mins. Product arrived next morning with a courier ticket for return.

I'm impressed. No asking for receipts or proof of purchase, just a quick replacement.

To answer the above, as expected, WPA3 is not a cloud only feature.

 

Although I had wpa3 selected, the AP was only working in WPA2 mode after the cloud trial expired. Deleting the ssid on the AP, forgetting the network on my client device and re-adding the network did not work and still resulted in WPA-2 operating mode. New additional SSIDs added did work in WPA3 mode.

 

What did finally work was, deleting the SSID, rebooting all AP's and then re-entering the SSID once the reboot was complete. After that, the wireless network worked in WPA3 mode.

 

Deleting and re-adding should have been enough, but it wasn't.

GregM: I talked to Ross last week and he had none left. I'm still having issues with my chromecasts, so if I can't sort soon, I may sell mine and go back to my unifi lrs

 

 

 

Darn! I'm guessing that, as I'm about 6 months too late to this thread, I've missed the bonanza of cheap-but-enterprise-grade-access-points 😣

 

Are there any current recommendations for APs that can do VLANs / multiple SSIDs but aren't necessarily WIFI 6? Anyone wanting to sell a couple of APs that they no longer need...?

I've got some spare Unifi gear that was replaced by some of these 315s probably not quite what you were meaning though!
