Re: What AP for wall mounting inside the office?

The wAP AC doesn't look bad when wall mounted and provides excellent coverage. With brick walls, I would plan on 3 per floor just to insure 5ghz coverage. https://mikrotik.com/product/RBwAPG-5HacT2HnD Thanks. Does MikroTik publish antenna beam coverage? wAP AC has a metal backplate, so I presume co...

What AP for wall mounting inside the office?

Hello all, could you please suggest what would be the best AP for wall mounting inside the office? It is because we are lacking ceiling mounts and cabling, so I am looking at the next best solution.

Re: RB260GS EOL? [SOLVED]

The next best alternative is a cheap TP-Link managed switch, but those aren't even close to Mikrotik's quality.
Yah, I know. :-(

It is kind of weird that they allow such situations. The only explanations that I can think of is that they have very low margins.
