Hi,

I have an existing UBNT WDS cloud (it's 2 Bullet2's and 2 Powerstation2's). I'd like to convert it to a mesh since I'm adding a second gateway (faster, lower latency).

Is there any recommended practices, suggestions, or gotchya's I should read ahead of time?

I've reflashed a meraki mini with robin/open-mesh firmware to get a handle on things; I'm going to do that to the other mini I have as well for convenience. Otherwise, I'm pretty adept at compiling and building stock OpenWRT, I'd be happy to help on ROBIN code since it's supporting my cloud.

Btw, my existing WDS cloud is about 3x7 miles, with very spotty coverage, but I've got a good reliable 1Mbps bidirectional link that goes 5 miles between nodes 1 and 2 and then 8 miles between nodes 2 and 3.

My only worry is that I'll lose distance when I move from ubnt firmware to robin firmware -- I've carefully selected antenna's and fiddled with configurations extensively to get this working I'm not anxious to break it Smile.

Thanks,

--Ivan

yes

ROBIN is not perfect but Antonio is working on it Smile

Firmware for the ubnt equipment is still in alpha

Set up a test network first, Meraki Mini are unstable so don't judge ROBIN performance on that device

I've found EnGenius EOC-2610 to be rock solid

Well; this is a deployed network that'd be difficult to test. I'm amazed at the variability of the performance with stock UBNT firmware but it's a pretty big stretch for it to work "out of the box" in my setup.

Thanks,
