Hello,

Thank you.

Do you want to use the new devices as routers or as accesspoints. In case the latter, just use the cAP ac, hAP ac2 or Audience (wasn't aware of this new device...).

Do you mean by LAN switching (and how many ports?), or is routing also required? Why did you come up with the RB4011 (will do fine in all cases, just not sure wether it is required)?

Love Tik for routing... but when it comes to wireless... not so much. If you have a connection faster than about 300M, you are going to want to look at other vendors for the wireless.

Also if you are in a very dense WiFi environment... other manufactures handle interference better than Tik.

So I still don't know what to buy.

Want RB4011 for wireless. Currently have CCr1009-7G-1C-PC + 2x UniFi Pro. CCR will sell. Maybe will stay with RB4011 as main router and wifi + RB962UiGS for wifi in another room?

The 4011 has had problems with SFP+ port and with WiFi interfaces. I would hold off on that one.

get 2 cAP ACs and run caps-man on your CCR until mikrotik makes a better WIRELESS ACCESS POINT.

Thank you, didn't know RB4011 has some problems with SFP+ and WiFi.
So will wait some weeks and will see if I will change CCR for something other.

Thank you
