It seems like home networking issues are something that pretty much everyone faces these days; despite there being a flood of devices which aim to solve our Wi-Fi woes. Recently I decided to opt for a UniFi setup over typical mesh system. And after living with the setup for a few months now, the verdict is in; it’s safe to say that adopting Ubiquiti gear into your home is a must for tech enthusiasts or anyone who needs break-neck performance. Head below for an in-depth guide on how you can upgrade your home network by getting started with UniFi. Why choose UniFi? Right off the bat, you may be wondering what benefits getting started with a UniFi setup offers? Especially when compared to other high-end systems. One of the biggest selling points is the level of control that the suite of products offer. In the prosumer space, you won’t find an ecosystem that is as feature-packed as UniFi while still being accessible. It’s also versatile, as there are plenty of different ways to configure the network. Whether you want a mesh setup or just need a single, long-range access point, there’s a series of components available that will fit the bill. Lastly, upgradability enters as yet another notable perk of going the Ubiquiti route. So if you make the switch to a Gigabit internet plan, you can opt for a more capable access point rather than entirely replacing the setup. Breakdown of the setup: The two core pieces of hardware you’ll need for getting started with UniFi are a router and access point. Routers handle network traffic, assign IP address to connected devices and more. You can effectively think of it as the brains of your setup,  as it handles the heavy lifting of ensuring clients stay connected. Then there’s access point, which connect to the router in order to create a wireless signal for your devices to connect to. Typical consumer Wi-Fi gear combines both of these devices into one. Ubiquiti’s upcoming Dream Machine takes a similar approach to this. But with the bulk of UniFi devices, you’ll be able to mix and match various components to build a setup that fits your needs. Getting started with the right UniFi Router: For pretty much any home network, Ubiquiti’s $130 UniFi Security Gateway is the ultimate option for getting started. It offers up to 3Gbps network throughput, support for up to 200 individual clients and plenty of other features. The Security Gateway works with UniFi’s Network Manager, which allows you to configure everything from basic Wi-Fi settings to individual client preferences. Plus, it gives you a thorough breakdown of network traffic. I’ve personally been relying on the UniFi Security Gateway for three months now. So far I have nothing but good things to say about its overall performance and reliability, as it has proved to be a fantastic option for getting started with UniFi. For additional performance, Ubiquiti also offers the UniFi Security Gateway Pro as well as the UniFi XG Gateway. Both options include notably enhancements to the standard gateway, but with a significantly higher cost. Getting started with a UniFi Access Point Finally, you’ll need to choose an access point. A solid place to look for getting started is the AC Lite, an entirely-level option that sells for $80. Even at a lower-end price point, it still touts 802.11ac connectivity, up to 1100Mbps network speeds and more. There are also plenty of other access points available, from mesh-focused and high-bandwidth to long range and more. UniFi Controller Another thing you’ll need for getting started is the UniFi Controller, a piece of free software that allows you to manage the entire network setup. For your initial setup, it isn’t crucial that the software is running 24/7, just when you’re looking to make changes to the network. Another perk of the UniFi Controller software is that it allows you to remotely access the network. This requires an always-on solution, but thankfully the client can run on a variety of different devices from an old computer to a Raspberry Pi. There’s also Ubiquiti’s own solution, the UniFi Cloud Key which integrates nicely into the ecosystem. Pairing all of this gear together is a solid way to get started overhauling your home’s Wi-Fi network.

At the beginning of the month, we introduced the Ubiquiti AmpliFi Instant mesh wireless network. From this week, the devices are reliable and, above all, available at regular prices. In the first weeks, some retailers had significantly more than the manufacturer's recommended price. As the manufacturer's official distributor, Notebooksbilliger now has the devices in stock. […]

Ubiquiti is well-known for its professional networking equipment, but has recently been branching out. Last fall we got a look at the AmpliFi Instant Mesh Wi-Fi System. Now the company has unveiled its latest Wi-Fi router, which brings a suite of pro-grade features to a more consumer-friendly design. The UniFi Dream Machine launches with an all-in-one design that touts up to 1000Mbps speeds, professional network management and much more. UniFi Dream Machine Design Ubiquiti’s new UniFi Dream Machine sports a nearly all-white cylindrical design. It fits perfectly in the company’s line up of existing devices and in a lot of ways, and looks like a spiritual successor to the AirPort Extreme. On the backside are the device’s I/O, with a necessary power input making the cut alongside four Gigabit Ethernet ports. And of course, on the top you’ll find Ubiquiti’s signature blue LED ring. UniFi Dream Machine capabilities: Spec-wise, the UniFi Dream Machine is equally as eye-catching. It features up to 700Mbps network speeds, with the option of bursting up to 1000Mbps. That’s actually better performance than the company’s UniFi Security Gateway – the current entry-level option for building out a UniFi setup. In terms of Wi-Fi, you’re looking at dual band 802.11ac connectivity. Much like many of the company’s access points, it also touts 4×4 Wave 2 AP, which gives newer devices an increased bandwidth for network traffic. One downside is that it lacks 802.11ax support. Unlike the AmpliFi Mesh System, the UniFi Dream Machine integrates with Ubiquiti’s existing SDN software. This gives you pretty much complete control over configuring the network, monitoring devices and more. Plus, it offers some pretty fantastic graphs and statistics. The software also allows you to expand the Dream Machine’s capabilities with additional access points, Ethernet switch and more. Check out the full list of features right here: High‐Performance Dual Band 802.11ac 4×4 Wave 2 AP Managed 4-Port Gigabit Switch Advanced Security Gateway with IPS and DPI UniFi Network Controller with Intuitive User Interface Scalable Through Additional UniFi Devices Connected to LAN Powered by Fast 1.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor UniFi Dream Machine pricing and availability: The new UniFi Dream Machine will be launching with a $299 price tag. It is now available for purchase as part of the company’s Early Access program, which is free to sign up for. In the near future we’ll see the Ubiquiti’s latest networking device officially go on sale at retailers like B&H as well as Ubiquiti’s own storefront. 9to5Toys’ Take: I couldn’t be more excited about the launch of the UniFi Dream Machine. At the beginning of the year, I made the switch form an AmpliFi Mesh System to a full-blown UniFi setup. A lot of trial and error was involved to get things configured. So if I had to do it all over again, I’d absolutely opt for the Dream Machine as a starting point. It’s price makes the UniFi Dream Machine just a little bit more expensive than buying the Enterprise Gateway Router and UniFi AC Pro; which is essentially what the all-in-one device is. Though that increased price also brings enhanced functionality as well. The form-factor takes the guess work out of setting up a UniFi network. It’s going to drastically lower the barrier to entry for Ubiquiti’s platform and I think it’ll certainly be a hit with the more tech-oriented crowd.
