The cheap linksys that I was using as a wireless access point is dying, so I replaced it with a UniFI AP from Ubiquiti. Here are a couple quick thoughts on it:
The install was as simple as downloading the Ubiquiti software and installing it on a vm on the same subnet as the access point.
I couldn’t be bothered to properly mount the AP, so it is definitely a plus that it works great from the floor . lol..
The GUI is pretty awesome, fast, and easy to use. I particularly liked how easy it was to upgrade the firmware on the AP.
Price. I paid about $67. That’s really good for the functionality that you are getting.
The web GUI uses Flash. Why is anyone still using flash?
Linux is not an officially supported platform. Not cool Ubiquiti!!
It looks like there is a beta release for Linux, so I will have to check that out in the future.
Java problems. I couldn’t get the software to work with the latest version of Java so I had to downgrade. I can’t remember the last time I used a Java program that worked out of the box without a bunch of messing around with different versions. sigh..
Overall I’m pretty happy, but I wish Ubiquiti would fully support Linux and move away from Java and Flash.
