I immediately thought of  you when I found the travelbydrone.com website.

Thanks... I might repost my videos there. Too bad I didn't have my drone when I flew to Toronto a month ago.

 

Sorry for the OT.

ya correct.

What is correct? It would be a big help if you use the Quote button on the lower right of the post your responding to ;)

Any got any comparative idea of how much Signal strength/ coverage variation the UB AP has as compared with a Asus RT-AC68U (that I am considering getting) (Price & Performance)

I have the Asus 68U located on 2nd floor office in the center of the house. I used an old Linksys E4200 running dd-wrt as a repeated bridge for the 5G band on the first floor. I get great coverage and speed. However when I deployed two AC-PRO units in the same locations, I saw a better wifi experience. Speed calculated the same but web browsing and file copying was quicker.

My biggest issue with my Asus Router and even route is apparent latency. Speedtest and others show the expected 60 down, but still pages can be slow to load.

Funny enough things do seem better when I run Linux while in dual-boot on my notebook.

 

Going to try backhaul on Eero via powerline and ultimately run ethernet when it cools down a bit. Just too hot in my attic right now. I do have cable where all my Eero devices

are. Do they do good enough and save me some attic and under the house time for now?

Oh yeah I agree with the latency. But in my case (at times) its VZ FiOS having latency issues a few hops from my local CO. I wish I could do ethernet but too hard to fish the cables. Powerline actually slows down my network compared to wireless connectivity back to the main AP.

Interesting. What do you use to test latency other than your impressions when using your network day to day?

Subjective at best. When web pages seem to delay before completing on my Macbook, I turn to my Windows desktop ethernet connected. When its not a FiOS latency issue I notice wireless devices have the issue. Only intermittent.

I seem to notice less lag with my Linux OS than on Windows interestingly enough.
