Jul 20, 2018

Installing a cool home WLAN

Here are some things I learned installing a Edgerouter X and Unifi AC Access Point


dead simple firewall program. have to open ports for Unifi controller, and it’s easy as

ufw enable 443

to open port 443 for traffic.

setting a static ip for my machine

running unifi controller in the cloud

cable managment

My place is not very big and 1 AP is just enough. But I wanted to mount it in a central spot, and had to run about 60ft of CAT5 cable around the perimeter of 2 rooms. Mounted on the ceiling in the living room it looks pretty sweet.
