I'm in the process of getting another wireless router to replace the current/outdated one that I have. While doing some research, I came across this in this thread:

What sparked my interest was this:

https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-UAP-AC-M-US-Unifi-Access-Point/dp/B01N9FIELY

I've been trying to find how to set up the Ubiquiti UAP-AC-M-US for use with my qu-16 with no success. How would I go about doing this? Do I still need a wireless router?

The reason why I ask about still needing a router is that on the Amazon page for this product, in the Q & A portion, someone asked if they still needed a router and the response was yes. I'm new to this concept of just a single AP for my mixer and by my logic, I would assume a router would not be necessary. Please correct me if I'm wrong and point me in the right direction.

TIA.....

So, tell us how you set it up?

What I meant was that there was no resource online on how to set it up with a digital mixer.

I have not purchased the Ubiquiti yet. If I can find out how to set it up without purchasing another router, then I'll buy it. If not, I'm basically just going to buy hopefully a router that any of you could recommend.

Routers direct traffic when devices are not on the same network.  You do not need a router.

From what Ive heard and my limited experience with Ubiquiti gear they are happiest with a dhcp server in the network thought its not absolutely requires. Many devices that include a router also include a dhcp server.

Thanks Tim. That's what I needed to hear. Ubiquity ordered......

I'll let you guys know how the setup/operation goes when I receive it

I've been using EnGenius ENS500EXTs as WAPs with static IPs on the (QL1/5) console and iPads and they're very reliable, placed on top of a fully extended boom arm mic stand with a Sampson mic clip.

You can turn on a DHCP server in this stand alone access point were you cannot in many others. This is the AP I use at events of 50k plus with no issues.

I started struggling with the same lately with the companys routers so I went in the basement and blew some dust off a very old router I had lying which only has one antenna, which is detachable, and ordered a directive 9dBi (so it says at least) antenna which I can elevate (since I have about 1m low-loss cable going to it) and point towards the stage or wherever from FoH, or the other way around. In open field it got me 40% better coverage at least, and on the jobs I'm working with a much stronger signal than before.

I always used a Linksys home-gamer unit buried in the rack. This gives you local access thats always on. Then I used a Ubiquity WAP for coverage.

This was a great option for me, because for small stuff, or maintainence you didn't have to set up the WAP, but if you were at a festival on a college campus in the middle of a downtown area, the ubiquity would be able to blast through all the noise and get you solid control.

Well, I thought I had it. Anyway, here is what is going on...

I received my Ubiquiti Unifi AC Mesh (UAP-AC-M) today. I set the app up on my iPad and tried to set up the AP for my Qu-16. I can connect for all of 30 seconds and the AP drops from my wifi list. If I'm not mistaken, I thought I could just use this AP (NO ROUTER NEEDED) for mixing wirelessly, but I can't even connect for more than a minute.

Please be gentle, but how do I set a static IP between my Qu-16 and my iPad through the AP? Its late at night here where I'm at and I'm getting a little frustrated....
