How Do I Return or Replace My Faulty Ubiquiti Product? UK RMA Procedure

Here at LinITX we often get calls from customers who have purchased their Ubiquiti product from another reseller (not from LinITX), wanting to know how to return their faulty Ubiquiti product in the UK. When the other company’s customer service is either not helpful or in some cases, non-existent, the customer gets frustrated when we try to explain the correct way of returning their product for a replacement or refund is directly with the company they originally purchased from.

What is the Default Username & Password for UniFi Access Points?

So, you’ve just got your shiny new UniFi Access Point and have yet to go through the setup process of installing the unit. During this process when you adopt the UniFi wireless AP into the controller software you will be asked to assign a username and password – to be clear, this isn’t asking you what the current username and password is, it’s asking you to assign new ones (that you have thought of with your own fragile mind).

Is There Rain Fade on 60GHz Wireless Signals?

Many new wireless wire and wireless wire dish customers who are unfamiliar with 60GHz have been asking about rain fade and if it’s a major problem on 60GHz.  So let’s look at the facts.

At 60GHz the biggest problem is actually attenuation from Oxygen.  The O2 molecules in the air absorb the RF energy very efficiently at this frequency.  Therefore link distances tend to be much shorter than hoped for if purely considering Free Space Path Loss.  The losses at 60GHz equate to around an extra 15dB per Km over and above any FSPL.  So what about rain, fog, sleet, snow, mist etc?

Ubiquiti airFiber AF-5XHD vs AF-5X PtP Radio – What’s the Difference?

Ubiquiti recently replaced its popular AF-5X PtP (Point to Point) radio with an updated and upgraded version – the airFiber AF-5XHD. Many of our customers have been asking what’s the difference between these two models, given its slight increase in price (around 8%) and what sort of improvements can they expect with the newer AF-5XHD.

If we’re talking about performance, users of the AF-5XHD can expect an increase of up to 20% on backhaul capacity, without wasting frequency spectrum. This is a pretty big gain in performance over the AF-5X and this is based on “real world” figures as detailed in this post on the Ubiquiti forum.

What is a Wireless Mesh WiFi Network?

Often referred to as simply a Mesh Network and more frequently in the consumer market as Home Mesh WiFi (or Whole Home WiFi) – this is a system of two or more router-type devices that work together in order to expand WiFi coverage within your home or business. Yet again, we make a comparison to the more commonly used (but massively outperformed and terribly outdated) WiFi extenders and repeaters, as essentially the Mesh WiFi Network will also eliminate WiFi dead spots within their install location and broadcast range.
