Hi. I have a problem getting TP Link powerline to accept my Lan connections with the Unifi set up. Currently, I have the modem connected to Unifi router, and one Lan cable from Lan 4 to TP Link powerline.

Hi there, Great article. I have been looking for something like these ever since I got my Unfi 30mbps, which have been really bad, at times worse than my previous Streamyx 4mbps. At times when I play games on my mobile, I have really bad lag spikes. My house is a Semi-D Double Storey house, with up 20 devices at times during busy times. Currently I have 3 boxes stacked on each other, the bottom one is some “Alcatel” modem, then “Innotech” router, and the top is the Hypptv. On this list, is to replace the “Innotech” router only right?… Read more »

Currently i have ASUS RT-N14UHP Wireless-N High Power Router but this is without DSL port.
Need your advice which type of DSL+ethernet that I’m able to purchase to support unifi 30mbps.


I’m not sure why my condo is using Ethernet instead of Fibre. But the speed same as Fibre.

Does modem below work for Unifi and RT -N14UHP ?

A very nice article!

Btw, can you advice me which router is better, RT-AC55UHP or RT-N66U?

Currently I’m using maxis fibre 10mbs, and I’m experiencing heavy lag/spike while playing online game (dota 2) whenever someone else is streaming youtube, movie etc. So i am hoping to find a replacement router that can provide stable speed with good QOS ability.

Thank you.

Hi, I just curious is there any unifi modem router combo you would like to recommend?

I read your articles written about the Asus Wifi routers with full interest.

Planning to get an ASUS AC wifi router like RT-AC1200HP or RT-AC55UHP.

I have a few questions on the below areas.

1. Qos
– Can above Asus routers support adaptive Qos configuration, but not limited to control/prioritise VPN, VoIP traffic.

2. VPN Server
i) Can above Asus routers be configured as VPN router?
ii) If Asus RT-AC55UHP and/or RT-AC1200HP is configurable as VPN server, can it at the same support
VPN clients at local segment (behind this router) connects to any other VPN servers in Internet?


My budget is RM600 max, looking for 5ghz connection router and friendly unifi. I live in a Semi-D house with 12 devices most of the time. Now im using 50mbps unifi advance with hypptv.

My questions:

1. Which model and brand you recommend me to buy?
2. Where should I place the router? Higher place?
3. The old router im planning to make it as a WiFi repeater. Can you teach me how to do it? [email protected]
