I don't disagree, but the internet panel/terminated Cat5e cables are no where near the middle of the house. The UDM is too much hardware just to be an AP for us. After another day of research, it is decision time:For the UDM (and any all-in-one type), probably on your main floor in the middle of the house would be the best spot for it, perhaps on a table/bookshelf/etc.
I was planning to make very limited use of QoS, to prioritise Plex/gaming traffic over torrents. It's doubtful I'll be able to able to max out the download rate very often (bigger issue when my internet speed was ~62/12), but maxing out the upload is still pretty easy and, in the past, one or the other, has caused issues with Plex buffering and, to a lesser degree, gaming. If Plex buffers once, I hear about it.just don't plan to use QoS/IPS/DPI.
Tell me about it; network equipment is not exactly that exciting. That's why I need those pretty graphs. In all seriousness, four or five over hundred dollars averaged out over x years makes it more palatable.You're still looking at almost $400.
Better off simply setting limits and/or scheduling in your torrent client IMO.I was planning to make very limited use of QoS, to prioritise Plex/gaming traffic over torrents
Yeah it's not listed on their store for Canada, and B&H lists it as preorder at a slightly inflated $349USD price too.I am not even sure the UDM is for sale in Canada yet, I'd try getting it shipped to my US mailing address.
Sadly, the builder only put one run per room, which is why I'm gravitating to UAP-AC-IWs (despite their supposedly worse performance compared to other APs).If any of your “optimal placement” locations has two runs....
I've tried that over the years, but QoS is, I think, a better solution. I am on private trackers, so I need to seed to download. Buffer is life. The issue only really arises when a dip ship starts downloading a multiple seasons simultaneously, which hammers my upload for hours non stop. It happens so sporadicaly that limiting my upload rate in utorrent would rob me of too much seed credits.Better off simply setting limits and/or scheduling in your torrent client IMO.
I used scheduling for many years, worked fine and I still kept my near-2.0 ratio. I'd just cap it during the hours in the evening when people would be watching things/using the Internet and then let it run uncapped while sleeping/at work.It happens so sporadicaly that limiting my upload rate in utorrent would rob me of too much seed credits.
