Ever since we bought the house, last year, I’ve been planning to run wired network to the living room TV and media center — it’s time to finally get that done 🙂
We recently got a family computer in our play room, and it of course needs network. So I ran a 20 mm conduit from the basement, through the kitchen, to the play room, and pulled two CAT6 cables.
Shortly after I upgraded my Unifi access points from 4.3.28 to 5.43.43; I started getting timeout issues. Not all devices, but some; the Raspberry Pi driving our DAKboard, and both our Netatmo air quality sensors.
It took me a while to understand what was happening, and I didn’t immediately relate it to the firmware upgrade.
Ever since I ran a underground CAT6 to my garage — my Unifi UAP-AC-M access point have been acting strange…
I initially noticed that whenever I was close to the garage; I would loose internet connectivity for a few seconds. At first I just thought it was an area with poor coverage, but looking at the signal strengths that didn’t make any sense.
I’ve written a few posts now about my Home network v2 project. What’s the plan? Let’s go through that now.
