Hi Alvyn Great website and has been really informative and helpful to get the right router and getting it configured for Unifi. I would like to enquire something if its not too much of a trouble. My contractor have installed a CAT6 cable for telephone and network cable which extends from the spot where the TM Fiber Wall Socket and patchcord is installed to where my tv cabinet is located – this was to setup the hypptv point. Can this LAN point be used to access the internet by connecting any other device? If yes, would it be possible to… Read more »

I am staying in double storey terrace house and currently using Asus RT-AC1200G+ for 2 years+. I had a bad experience with TP Link Repeater (RE200) as there are some deadspots in my house Reason being 1. instable connection 2. somehow the repeater interfere with the original wifi signal (eg. status may indicate that my device is connected to to the router SSID but through the repeater. I found out after i tried connecting to the web interface: 192.168.x.x) This experience causes me to have a dilemma to go for Wireless Mesh. However I’m also skeptical about new router like… Read more »

Dear Alvyn,
I am currently use TP wifi extender RE650 (located ground floor) with my Archer C9 router (installed first floor) . Coverage has increased tremendously in terms of 1F and GF.

However I face issues with the mobile devices not automatically connecting to the strongest wifi signal as they move between the two different SSID.

Would a MESH setup from TP or Asus help for the mobile devices wifi speed And are the mesh compatible to setup the HyppTV?

Thanks and Appreciate your help to recommend.

Hi Alvyn,

Would you by any chance know of anyone who assist to setup/install router? Have issues setting up Lyra Trio. Managed to get 1 node to work but one node now has gone into rescue mode and cant get the other node to pair. Rather get a pro-in to set it up fully along with VPN and Qos. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

Hi, I would like to make a suggestion that will be an improvement for the router test results. PPPoE WAN speed test results. I mean use your own PPPoE server and then test the router throughput through the PPPoE connection. You can’t find such info on the web reviews & even if it did include it, that is usually just simply the result of the reviewer testing on their own broadband & speed limited by their broadband package. Most of the time you can only get a hint of the actual performance reported by the actual users with varying accuracy.… Read more »
