Great product ... EXCEPT for the casing material used

published

The problem is, the casing material "attracts dust particles" (according to manufacturer support), and it sure does, as well as anything else that might be in the air or surrounds. When you try to clean the router and extenders with anything other than the recommended "clean, dry cloth", you can't! My router sits in my study, which I heat with a wall-mounted gas unit in winter. As a result, the router looks grimy and feels sticky – and nothing I do can it clean it. So very disappointing. The manufacturer support has basically washed their hands (pun intended) of the problem. So much for the use of advanced materials in the 21st century!

Update: Another cool feature of this mesh router setup is that when my wife misplaces her phone, I can log into the app and roughly work out which room it is in based on which mesh router it is connected to and the connection strength.

Does the basics, and not much else

published

The router will connect you to the internet and allows for quick additions, and the range is fine for a small home. The clock face also automatically updates for daylight savings which is nice, and it looks good. However, the software is extremely limited, and having to use an app rather than being able to reach the management software on the computer is frustrating. Good for non-tech savvy people, for anyone who's looking for something that they can have any control over I'd recommend going with another brand.

Great router, very happy

published

I decided to try this router to try to improve the wifi dead spots in my double brick townhouse. It was very easy to set up and looks attractive. I now have wifi upstairs and in the garage and I don’t think I will need to buy additional points at this stage.
Very happy with the purchase.

Purchased in at Umart Online NSW, West Ryde.

Packed with great features

published

Small little white cube unit and very easy to set up. The manual is easy to follow but you will not need to use it as everything can be set up using the App. One of the best App to use; everything can be control with it. Good price from Pentanet and the router delivered and look great.

A must have for all homes.

published

I researched a lot of routers/modems to carefully choose the right one for my house.

This router is amazing. The app is extremely easy to use with the ability to control all the wireless connections from your phone while away from home.

Easy to set up 5 minutes TOPS!

2.4/5ghZ wifi connections and 4 Ethernet Ports is perfect for a house.

Zero regrets in this purchase.

Purchased in at PLE Computers for $239.

Blessing in Disguise - Super Easy & Super Quick & SUPERB PERFORMANCE

Bought this item through Custom Home Theatre Solutions via online. Did check loads of reviews about various other routers but this Ubiquiti Amplifi was also one of them, since I wasnt familiar with this name, did more research and was inclined towards giving it a try.
Well the product lived up to and beyond my expectations !! Very Very easy to set up & Very Very fast to hook up and create all those fancy things that poeple these days do with the router like dual band / Guest Network / Parental Control,, WOW doing all these things was so much fun and seamless .

I have to mention, this looks stunning No matter where you keep this thing it grabs all the attention and my friends and family who visit me go Awww about how cute this looks !

Fantastic coverage throughout the house

published

Have one AmpliFi router and 5 mesh points around a two storey house and have complete WiFi coverage inside and outside. The setup was really straight forward - just plug and play and you're good to go. Have had other mesh solutions in the past (Netgear) and it's never worked as well as this. Would highly recommend.

Purchased in at MyITHub for $1,096.70.

Great looking router

published

Doesn't look like another ugly router you want to hide behind the shelf. Very stylish and nice looking device. Easy set up and excellent wireless coverage. The smartphone app is very useful with plenty of features. Technical supports is quite good. Would highly recommend this router. I have been using it for last two months, no issues or wifi drop offs.

Ubiquiti Amplifi HD nice stylish wifi router

published

Set up very easy with smartphone app. Serious networkers will be disappointed with the lack of options to change but port forwarding and dchp server settings are accessible. Wi-fi coverage good even without mesh points attached. Easy to monitor via app and guest wifi system works well and easily.Looks good as well.

Simple and reliable Wi-Fi

published

I purchased this Wi-Fi router to resolve some airplay and Wi-Fi coverage issues I've had at home. I am very impressed at the performance. It was also very quick to setup, however if you are into adjusting advanced settings, you will be disappointed. That said, the basic NAT/PAT advanced setups was available, and the WiFi performance solid and reliable. I am no longer having Bonjour issues and can happily AirPrint from my phone. Not as configurable as their corporate products, though seems to have the same good Wi-Fi chipset/antenna's inside. This is NBN suitable with a Gigabit ethernet WAN port.
