What I’ve Got: Unifi Access Point

by post_author

One router can’t cover everything. The most common solution is to get a second router and create a wifi network with a second name. The problem is that when you walk between the two zones, you’re coverage will either cut out or you will remain connected to the weaker network.
A solution is to use multiple access points (like Harvard—you can see Linksys routers everywhere on campus). As you move between them, your computer automatically connects to the one with the strongest signal: they have the same name, so there is no barrier between switching. As long as your home is ethernet wired, Unifi lets you do this at home. The Unifi app lets you name the wifi and see network statistics.
