Default Ubiquity UnifiAP ...

Anyone had experience with the Ubiquity UnifyAP ? This appears to be an old WAP that's 2.4GHz b/g/n ... not spectacular, but it at least has 802.11n that my WRT54G does not have...

Anyone have comments about its management (seems to have *boo* client based binaries), or is it an OpenWRT candidate? Does the Linux client require root (nevermind having to match ubuntu libraries...?)

Never used this AP, but openwrt is available.

18.06.2 is supposed to be released soon later this month?

Was curious about using its stock software stack as-is before having to revert to openwrt.

It appears to already be running Linux, just that its internal software has its own esoteric way of doing things...

I use unifi AP's for just about all the wireless OFFICE installations I do. Of course, they allow for a huge budget range and use case, but all their hardware is bulletproof. They also have a lot of cool concepts, like in-wall AP's that replace keystone jacks/wall plates.

As for managment, they really are more aimed at the WDS type market. They do have some home targeted models, but most of their stuff is meant for 5+ AP type installs. For a home network the management would probably not offer that much really. I've never tried their home gear though.
