My guess would be yes. Most of those released 2015-2016. We've since seen their 3rd gen products released around 2018 with the HD products, and now the UAP6 devices are starting to trickle out. Doesn't really make sense to keep promoting the older stuff.
ustomer wouldn't approve adding cabling to run extra APs.
How many do they have today?
That's kind of what I'm thinking of recommending, but would want to ensure that we're list apples to apples and not against grapefuites (if you get my point).
well sure - so look at what the current APs support, then find something that does that or better for the new APs, You might have to play with power settings to keep things from overlapping to much,...
@travisdh1 Yeah I'm thinking what happened is someone setup a Unifi Controller on windows at some point, then they engaged us and said yeah we don't have access to the AP's but its all still working. So they were sold a physical cloud key, and still the AP's weren't adopted.
Assuming you're at an MSP now, do you host a controller that you could just build a new site for and adopt the APs too?
I think that the key thing here might be in interpretation of the language.
"We have another business in the building" could mean that they own two companies and those two "companies" are sharing a connection. We might use that terminology for two divisions that do different things but legally can share a connection no problem.
Or it might be some random business that just happens to be in the same building that is trying to not pay for their own Internet, in which case this is a big problem.
Everyone is assuming the second, but I had read it assuming it was the first. But both are just assumptions, to know what the best options are and what is an option really requires understanding that.
Wow, I am terrible at following up with posts in a timely manner....
Yes, it is the first. So you assumed correctly. So I think we are all set with just breaking out the connection via a switch after the modem.
If it was me and it was two companies that I controlled, I'd use an EdgeRouter Lite, it has one WAN in and two LAN out. That way I'd have central control. Make that control owned by the "parent" organization. Then have each place have their own switches after that point. But only one router.
This is also how I would do it. There would only be one company in control of the one router.
How do you Export/Import Sites into new controllers ?
Never mind I figured it out.
I went into "site" settings , In the bottom left corner there was "export site" option.
Click on that, download the backup file,
create network on other Controller, then import site.
You can then (if you have a domain set up) migrate the AP to that Controller.
I didn't have this issue; I installed and it's working properly, can view, and edit the AP .
The tablet connects to the Network, with a Static IP of 192.168.128.103
the Ip of the AP is showing as 192.168.2.41 ..
But it is connected..
is that normal??
sure, it can be. All depends on the routing.
I assume you have the AP connected somehow to the second port on the ER-L, and that it's getting DHCP from that, but that same switch also has a connection to the secondary NIC in your Server, so the static IP'ed traffic can get around on that. You've kinda created a bridge between the networks via the AP, and if the password is the default, that could be a problem.
