Openreach ONT and Ubiquiti Networks USG

These are both connected to a Eaton UPS, although the ONT already has battery backup, in the future depending on the heat in cupboard may be joined by Ubiquiti Networks switches and access points.

No more double NAT – removed Fritz! Box 3490, and now just use Ubiquiti Networks UniFi Security Gateway

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

Since I migrated from Eclipse Internet to Zen Internet, I signed up to a 12 month contract and Zen Internet sent me out a free Fritz! Box 3490 to connect to ADSL, because all the other junk, BT Home Hub3, Draytek Vigor, 2Wire  routers had all come to the end of their lives and I dumped them down the tip.

I also wanted to start new and fresh with a new ISP, and their supported router.

I’ve also been replacing networking and access points with Ubiquiti Networks equipment. Specifically the UniFi AP AC Pros. These are not the cheapest network gear to get your hands on, but performance, quality and enterprise kit in the home – it’s excellent – I cannot praise it enough – I’ve been trailing a single 2.4/5GHz access point for over 12 months.

I’ve also installed a UniFi Security Gateway – and for a while I was running “double NAT” with it connected to the Fritz! Box 3490, when I was running ADSL, with the switch to FTTP, some minor configuration changes to the Fritz! Box 3490, and it was connected to the ONT in the last couple of days, but I’ve now removed the  Fritz! Box 3490, and now connected the USG direct to the ONT, ready for it’s move at the weekend, and securing to the wall next to the ONT.

The muts nuts of Access Points – The Ubiquiti Networks UAP-AC-PRO @ubnt

Friday, January 27th, 2017

Very impressive hardware, with lots of features, and statistics, logging….Good Radios, for 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Setup is straightfoward, and if you know what you are doing for shits and giggles, you can hit the Advanced Button!

The UniFi Controller software can be linked to the Cloud, so you can spy on your installation from remote Web browser or Smartphone application, available for Droid and iThingy.

An excellent feature shows WiFi devices MAC and IP Address, but also looks up the manufacturer, and also shows device signal quality, and data transmitted and received, I’m now puzzling why my Chromecast and Amazon Firestick are so chatty!

Here are some screenshots from the Droid app

So 16 hours into testing, and I’ve connected a total of 24 devices concurrently, and transferred a massive 23.1GB of traffic across the WiFi network (single access point). All other WiFi devices are turned off now,  no router WiFi or other access points, I’m still using the TP-Link router, at present because my Signal to Noise ratio on the Broadband Line has been reset to 6dB again!

That’s another story…..

Catch you later folk.
