Well, my Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X and UniFi AP Lite AC combo stopped working. Picked up a TP-Link Archer C7 to get us through until I could troubleshoot the Ubiquiti gear, decided to replace them with a MikroTik hAP ac after reading that Ubiquiti gear likes to die after around 18 months. Definitely not what I need at home. Configuring the MikroTik will be more work for me then I’m used to, but performance should be as good as or better than the Ubiquiti combo. I should also be able to keep the EdgeRouter-X around as a 5 port gigabit switch if I want to, powered by the hAP ac (it comes with a 24V wall wart and supports PoE out on port 5). I’m hoping I can easily get IPv6 working on the hAP ac, since it was a PITA on my EdgeRouter-X.
