RT2600ac and Ubiquity AC-LITE Access Point

Unread post by ReefAviator » Sun Feb 26, 2017 8:11 pm

Checking if anyone has tried adding a Ubiquity access point to a Synology router. I was particulary interested in any compatibility issues with Smart Connect. I would like to end up with a seamless transfer between radios as users walk between the router and the AP.

Normally I would do that by manually assigning widely-separated frequencies to both devices in both bands. However, I'd rather not do that and loose the Smart Connect functionality (which I kinda like). Curious if anybody has played with this yet.

FWIW. I started up the Ubiquity access point today and left everything regarding the frequencies to automatic. I checked the "AP Isolaton" box on the SRM. I left the Ubiquity self-asign frequencies. This is a sample of one...but everything sorted itself out. 11 wireless clients adapted seemlessly after one requested re-boot

I have a new RT2600ac with a weak signal in part of my home. I’ve been considering the AC-Lite, is this still working well for you? Is the transition between the Ubiquiti and the Synology fairly seamless when moving around? Thanks for any advice.
