    Ooh I need to take better pics, but I fitted a Pelago commuter large, a larger basket, and Big Top bag. The bag and basket kindly provided by @spotter

    Pics won't work...

    It's just a way of accurately representing how much dish your wheels have while also showing off your trainers.

    Here's a pic I took in 2008.

    speedtest app to see what speed you're getting.

    Wifi Analyzer to see how congested the channels are.

    It's worth trying out the Wifi Analyzer app all around your flat to see which is the best channel to use on average across the flat.

    If there's a lot of traffic in similar channels it can really introduce noise and drop the speed.

    I personally think one of the things that's lacking in modern wifi is some sort of automated tool to tune the reach/spread within congested areas.

    Back when I was running Tomato open source firmware on an old router/AP, I was able to tune the wifi so it only reached the limits of our flat, but the signal was much stronger as a result.

    I'd say yes as I have what sounds like the same problem.

    I'd suggest using a speed tester/wifi channel "analyser" tool to stand in different places in the flat and work out where the speed just starts to drop, or just before, and try and place your 3 units in the best place. I'd suggest buying a long-ish ethernet cable so you play with the position of the main Deco.

    I was using it as a cheap method of extending the range of my Virgin router/AP, powerline to the deadzone, then ethernet into the Unifi AP and give the Unifi WiFi a different SSID. Worked well for me but I think my electrical wiring in my flat was the problem. The drop from one powerline to the second was 160 mbps > 20ish mbps, which was atrocious. Hence my switch to mesh.

    If anyone is looking for a cheap (free) similar solution, then hit me up.

    I guess that's only a problem if you buy a controller after 01/03/2021

    I didn't know there was an EOL issue with some models, I've just checked and as I think this is an UAP V1, it is an EOL model. I don't know what this means long term, so it's up to you.

    Anyone after a Unifi AP, POE box, and 2 powerline adapters?

    I've bought mesh because the walls and floor in my flat have been proving troublesome.

    It's not a new Unifi AP so it can only do 2.4GHz but it is b/g/n.

    This is one of those deals where you're doing me a favour by not making me take it to the recycling centre.

    I wouldn't mind a few ciders in exchange though.

    I'm in N16.
