Looks like that RB450 variant comes with the same CPU and performance test results as the hap-ac2, but with much more RAM...which, economically doubles its retail price in comparison (adding enclosure and power supply).

interesting find, but how do you go about that, when the CAP is manged with CAPsman?
Modifying the local bridge in the AP is not OK,.as the bridge gets declared/created from the datapath setting in CAPSman, isn´t it?
