As long as it has the SFP+ ports and can achieve the throughput it claims it will be fine.

Ubiquiti release buggy software?  But they NEVER do that.  ::)

It has some really obvious defects that were noticed immediately.

I have barely scratched the surface and can already list 5+ defects of functionality or reporting.

I'll update this thread with the network as I build it. So very much in tactical solution territory.

Thank you, that will be appreciated.

Maybe you’ve already mentioned this - I haven’t gone back through the whole thread and my memory is shot - could you tell us about your choice of addressing scheme? IPv6 ? NAT or real addresses? And what are your MTUs going to be like for IPv4/IPv6?

Routed IPv6, NAT IPv4, relying on router to fragment and coalesce as it needs to. It is massively overpowered so will be fine.

Switched off the Ubiquiti for now.

I've 300/50 and can't use anywhere near all of it so rather pointless having that router.

The network right now is the ONT connecting to a regular WiFi router with a Raspberry Pi connected wired and everything else wireless.

I don't think a diagram is needed for that.

So the "grand design of the master-plan" has been reduced to very simple, basic, elements. I can easily "see" that infrastructure layout!  :D

I have no internal cabling outside of the cupboard under the stairs and no realistic prospect of doing so without notable damage to the property.

The quotes I've taken indicate how complex and disruptive this is going to be.

I'm stuck.

This written from our bedroom, where I currently have the below performance due to the wireless speed to my then £400 and even now £350 access point being 14 Mbps.

It is what it is. I don't have the energy to rage against it.

I've already bought components. Anyone want some Cat 8.1, brushed steel face plates, back plates or 2 GHz RJ-45 connectors?

Carl sorry to hear that. It is absurd that they are building new houses without any cabled networking built in.

It is possible to install cabling with minimal damage, round access holes can be cut in chip board floors, small holes in plasterboard so cables can be fed behind, but it's always disruptive and will require some redecoration. Whilst not ideal it may be possible to run cables externally, up to the loft or other rooms to get better WiFi coverage.

Can you not go outside the property with cabling?  In our house to get Ethernet from the study one end to the lounge was simply a case of taking Ethernet from inside to outside and running the cabling around the house.  Our house (new but not new build) the cable was easily buried just underneath the stone chippings running around the house next to the outside bricks. A similar thing was done to take Ethernet to the loft for the access point, fortunately already routed out by co-ax TV aerial cable we didn't need so it replaced that.

Regards

Phil

The broadband comes in under the stairs right in the middle of the house.

That's life. It was a nice little project idea.

Solution found. Can't keep me down for too long.

802.11ax, 160 MHz 4x4 wireless bridge. Careful placement will produce minimal attenuation, permitting >1Gbps throughput. Best case close to 2.5 Gbit/s.

Depending how it performs adding a second load of wireless bridging is an option and using switches and static LAG to load balance between the two bridges.

Then in a few years time when 2 - 5 Gbit/s isn't enough my beautiful wife will be more accommodating to using discrete fibre. The house it a bit new right now.

Will build, iPerf and update.
