  1. I agree that they are behind a carrier NAT, but this is still a double NAT regardless of the cause. CGNat specifically is supposed to use as the intermediate subnet, so it doesn’t cause a routing issue with a client device potentially having the same subnet. Using this subnet is the only thing that makes a NAT “Carrier-Grade”. Otherwise I agree with your advice that the only thing that can be done is get a public IP.
  2. Welcome to the magic (and hair-tearing frustration) of the “voice vlan”. Assuming your switch has this config option on the ports, here’s how it works: 1) the switch port is set with the untagged or access VLAN being the one you want the computer through the phone to use 2) the switch port is set with a “voice vlan” of whatever you want the phone to use 3) during bootup, before it runs DHCP, the phone will listen for LLDP packets from the switch. The LLDP packets will include the voice vlan. 4) when it sees a voice VLAN in LLDP, the phone will use that VLAN as t
  3. I would use the router’s IP as the secondary ( If you really want your devices to only use the pi-hole, then look up adding additional IP addresses on raspbian and then you have two IPs to make your router happy. But if the pihole is down, your devices will be offline.
  4. So without the AP on the 2nd floor, if you tried to rely on only the 1st floor APs, I would not expect a good experience in the Master Bedroom.
  5. The antenna is mostly omnidirectional, there is a slight preference for signal going horizontal instead of vertical. Most floors are about equal to two walls, especially as you get farther away from being right above/below the AP, because at oblique angles the effective thickness of the floor to the signal path increases (same for walls). You’ll likely get usable speeds on the second floor with this setup, but not close to what you get on the first floor.
  6. I don't know. Best I can say is go to design.ui.com and draw up a to-scale diagram, with the proper types of walls and such, and see what it shows when you place the APs.
  7. $179.00 is the MSRP, but neither site actually sells it for that price, they are both lower. But they are both out of stock of the RB3011. I am unsure whether the RB3011 is still being produced since the RB4011 has been out for a while. If you can find it anywhere for a price you are happy with then I guess that's good. If you have to ask this, you are in for quite a wild ride learning how to set up Mikrotik..... RouterOS has a *lot* of features. Many of them you don't need. But even if they aren't set up, the system still has to check each one for every packet that goes th
  8. Purely form factor (and slightly different antenna but its close enough to not matter). If you can put it on the ceiling use the nanoHD, otherwise use the FlexHD. If you're in the US, the RB3011 can be purchased from Baltic Networks or Streakwave for $145. If not in the US, I recommend checking with the official distributors in your country. Oftentimes these companies are also Ubiquiti distributors (Baltic Networks and Streakwave both are) so you can place your order all at once and not have a huge disadvantage in shipping costs. Also, the hEX (RB750Gr3 - $50-$60) can handl
  9. I recommend you confirm whether any mesh system you are interested in has a dedicated uplink radio. Sometimes this is called tri-band, but you need to verify whether the third radio/band is for dedicated uplink. Without knowing anything else, Netgear Orbi is my recommendation for average needs.
  10. The UAP-AC-Lite is a Generation 2 AP. It is not the same as the ones listed there. Those ones are square shaped.
  11. Where are you seeing that UAP-AC-Lite do not support fast roaming? They certainly do. That feature is available across all current Unifi APs.
  12. I guess you didn't see my edit to my prior post. What I said about "to a cloud key" applies to any device you want to put the controller on.
  13. I'm not able to directly answer your question as I haven't ever used the cAP ac. But I can tell you this from the data sheets: The UAP-AC-Lite has slightly higher gain on both frequencies (3 and 3 vs 2 and 2.5) this means the signal will be slightly stronger in the radial direction (out along the ceiling if it is mounted to the ceiling) and slightly weaker in the face direction (up and down if mounted to the ceiling). Or in other words the donut will be a little flatter and wider. The maximum transmit power is similar between the two. The cAP ac is a bit more powerful on 2.4GHz a
  14. That is correct. Whether or not you enable Fast Roaming, the controller isn't part of the roaming experience. Without Fast Roaming then nothing special happens. With Fast Roaming, the APs coordinate a few things between themselves (and some of these only happen once every 24 hours so wait a bit after enabling before testing it out) and the controller isn't involved. Edit: You can initially set up the controller on a computer, and then later migrate that controller to a cloud key. Migration is simply restoring a backup onto the new device, and then in the old one telling the APs to
  15. If you buy a UDM-Pro, you can't use a Cloud Key - the UDM-Pro runs the controller software internally, and MUST be adopted to itself. So the Cloud Key would be useless, unless you really wanted to have your APs in a different controller from your gateway (this is sarcastic, it makes no sense). The Cloud Key would be useful if you used a Mikrotik (or other) router, assuming you wanted the controller to be running 24/7. But even then it isn't necessary if you have a computer or NAS that is always on and can spare a bit of CPU and RAM (for a NAS, it will depend on what type you have,
