That says it all. I like the reliability of my AP but I'm actually ready to move on. I wanted to do more but it's such a time sink to do anything beyond just the basic setup.
I was going to change to consumer gear again next year I have the Pro AC one of you're interested in buying it off me. Then I could have the excuse to upgrade sooner.
That was a fun article to read, and so true. Not just of wireless networking -- storage, virtualization, wired networks, etc. I find that the further I get in my career, the less desire I have to go overboard with stuff at home. My patience for debugging and playing tech support at home is drastically less than it was 10 years ago.
My RT-N66U, having moved downstairs, seems to be doing the job. It's in the guest suite since that's the closest network jack. If I can figure a decent place to hide it, then it may just stay as is. If I'm going to have to figure out how to run cable for a downstairs AP, I might just consider figuring out how to get a hardline connection to the AV nook. The only two things I'd really be after, going to the Ubiquiti APs, are the seamless roaming and the guest network/portal. If I have a decent place to put the AP downstairs, where it can feed the AV gear, then the roaming isn't really an issue.
If the folks who wired this house had just put network drops everywhere they put coax drops, none of this would even be an issue....
