recommendation for WAP
« on: May 12, 2017, 08:58:35 am »

Having filed the Ubiquity Bullet in the garbage can (Apple Airport Express too...), I am on the hunt for something that WORKS. Spent many hours trying to get repeatable results to no avail.
Must  pack in a brief case reasonably well, dual band or 5 gig only (not an antenna farm device) not require an IT certification to set up and MUST work with Yamaha M7 and LS9 consoles and across other console brands.
I would really appreciate input from those who actually have a device that works with the Yamaha consoles .  "it should work" responses are not helpful.
For some reason, the older Yammys are quite fussy but seem to work fine on cheap OTC "routers"
I'm not too concerned with cheap...I want results. Must plug in and work every time I need it.
I'm fed up with dicking around with these devices every time I want to use them.
Yes, in case you have not figured it out...I'm frustrated  >:(

Suggestions welcomed. :)

I can get the exact model at work - but we use a netgear home/office router/wap and it works superbly.  We have them in 2 theaters and a mobile rig.  We use them with M7 and CL consoles

We do have success with airport expresses - but haven't used them with a Yamaha console so...

I've been using a SOHO class Netgear router too in my mobile rig as well (for no other reason than I had it sitting around) and it has been flawless. About 20 shows so far. I'll look up the model but I don't know if it's in production anymore.

We have several Netgear N600 WAPs, regular use with Yamaha consoles with no complaints. Dual band, small, etc.  The exact model # varies with the season, along with the cosmetics, but they've all been pretty solid.

 Netgear seems to be pretty good kit. Everything at work is netgear.

That said, I've been using the Linksys/Cisco stuff for years without issue. Once set up, they just keep working and working.

I know you said you're pissed and only want what works and that others have used.

But I installed this at my parents house which is 3.5 acres in the attic for their wireless cameras and to have wifi everywhere. It's only 2.4GHz. But it covers to the road (easily +600ft) to my laptop.

No dropouts within 400ft of the house and that is with 3x 3-8mbps HD cameras.

They have an AC (2.4/5GHz) model and that is what I plan on getting for my system. That way it works even if I'm outdoors in a festival and want to walk around the crowd. I'm sure I could get away with their smaller non outdoor AP's, but I'd rather have the insane range and dial it down when not needed.

Combine with a cheapo netgear router. disable its wifi. Boom easy peasy.

Yes. That's correct.
Your post comes under the "should work" answer.

You would not need the router for this application.  The 2.4Ghz only for the LR stuff is a non-starter.  We must use 5Ghz hence the interest in the bullet.


All that being said the Unifi UAP-AC-PRO is very solid and a real 802.3af powered device.
