Re: HAP AC

Does anyone know if the replaceable antenna is ufl or mmcx? It's hard to see from the photos.
In docs is written that this is ufl, but only for third chain of 2GHz and 5GHz.

Re: HAP AC

I got my hAP AC. The results are not that great. I get around 450Mbps on AC (with MacBook Pro 2015) to LAN. I get around 300-350Mbps with NAT (85% of CPU). What is interesting is the CPU usage when the hAP AC is sending: it's then around 20-30% (50% when doing AC+NAT with 300Mbps TCP), on the other ...
