and the they are not that expensiv.....
Can the E430H really cope with higher amount of clients? e.g. 50 to 100 on 5 GHz? (It has the same IPQ4019 chipset as the MikroTik cAP ac...)
Yes, and this shows ones more, the only Big problem is Mikrotiks own Designed Wireless Driver...
What can You advice for home usage only (well, I'm asking for myself
Basically I have 8-13(MAX) clients total, but
3 of them permanently doomed to work only with 2.4GHz chains, and in the end it's all about 3-6 maximum live clients that need cap "attention".
And my goals are: wireless speed (yeah, "give me those xxx mbps anywhere I want" thing) and distance (so cap beams at 30 meters and would penetrate concrete 30cm wall without huge losses - basically everything MK can't), and price OFC - so, I know that I won't be having best-of-the-best, and I don't have >300-1000$ per cap to buy ruckus.
Wireless speed in #1 priority, cause I have numerous clients that do need that (4K TV, Windows PC, hell, I need it even with some smartphone stuff) - and unfortunately there's no means I can do it all wired at all, even for PC cause I have a dramatically bad wires house planning, and expensive room finish - that way I can't just ruin half of the house to make proper wiring. That's why I'm leaning towards wireless gigabits and etc.etc... so hard.
Due to low client amount, I guess I don't need extra stable industrial HW.
