Re: Cap AC, Hap AC2 or UniFi?

The cAP AC and hAP AC2 top out right around 300 at point blank range. But the R510 will actually hit the 866M you should get from a 2x2 AC-MU radio. True, but this is coming at four times the price of a cAP AC/Unifi AC Lite making the comparison unrealistic. Like said by someone else, it is all abo...

Re: Cap AC, Hap AC2 or UniFi?


Quite happy with the performance of the capAC inside the home but range in 5Ghz is markedly and expectedly less than 2.4ghz.
That's pretty typical of 5GHZ. It is faster, but doesn't go through much, or very far.

When you configure a hAP AC2, cAP AC, and Rucks R510 exactly the same and swap them into the same spot one after the next... You would get it.

The cAP AC and hAP AC2 top out right around 300 at point blank range. But the R510 will actually hit the 866M you should get from a 2x2 AC-MU radio.
