The short version is I'm looking for a decent set-up to install at home with some particular requirements. The current set-up looks something like this: Border router + 2.4/5G AP on a .0/24 subnet Behind that, a Google WiFi mesh on a .2/24 subnet. It's a bloody nightmare. Google WiFi is intended to be used as the only/main router externally facing - if you want to use it as a Mesh network like I am, well... you end up with all kinds of problems, such as traffic not being able to route back correctly, DLNA/Chromecast devices that can only sometimes be discovered properly... basically, it's a dogs breakfast. Good idea in theory, unless you're a power user. I could go in to the details of how it's all configured and why it doesn't work, but I don't think it's going to yield any fixable solution - I'm in "start over" territory. So, what I want: - I want at least 2 APs to cover the house - can go to more if it's necessary, but it's not a large house and it's only me living here. - I want to be able to configure these via any kind of config that I can check in to a repo and push to the devices without needing a web interface. The mechanism for doing that I'm not terribly fussed about - I don't care if I use ansible, terraform, or just push them from a script in a docker container - but that's the way I want to go for this redesign. - WDS or any similar mesh - I want to be able to drop back to this being the only wireless network in the house, and be able to disable the APs/radios on other devices and not use them anymore. I do not want to have to say switch SSIDs/BSSIDs based on where I am in the house. - Nice to have would be to have two-way routing between the wireless network and other devices on the network, and that can include replacing the current border router to the NBN connection (or I can just use that as a bridge). - No particular requirement for AC1300/WiFi6 etc etc. Nice to have: PoE. As a separate project I've been looking at running fibre to a few locations in the house. But, it's been a lonnnnng time since I did any serious network config. Obviously I still know the fundamentals and vendor-agnostic stuff - but the last time I was responsible for a corporate network, we were using Cisco 1821s and Aironet 1200s. I don't think this will be a Cisco solution, but I'm seeking advice on some ideas I should start investigating. I don't know the first thing about Ubiquiti's product offerings other than that I keep hearing a lot about them over the past few years. It'd be nice to keep it below a $1k budget, but depending on what hardware and solutions you go with that could be either overkill or get you nothing such is the broad range of equipment out there. So, ideas?
