I second the positive feedback for Ubiquiti Networks products.
I have deployed 3 Ubiquiti WiFi access points in my house/shop and they work
well. I have two hard-wired in the house; the 3rd is in the shop (about 100
feet from the house), connected wirelessly to one of the hard-wired units in
the house, so there was no need to run a wire from the main house to the shop
to get WiFi out there. And the best part is that they are POI (Power over
Ethernet) so you only have to run an ethernet cable from your home
router/switch to each unit (or to an electrical outlet if connected
wirelessly); a POI adapter comes with every access point. The ones I use are
the Long Range version here: https://www.ubnt.com/unifi/unifi-ap-ac-lr/
I got mine from http://www.bhphotovideo.com (NFI) for US$99.00 each (shipping
included to Canada!) which is the best price I could find.
The software that ties everything together is a free download from Ubiquiti's
site. From the dashboard you setup the whole network and can monitor all the
client connections and device status. The only downside is that to get the most
out of an Ubiquiti setup you should have a server that runs 24/7 that will
gather stats and run guest portals, etc. A great write up on the system and
software can be found here
I also understand they have come out with a version directed at home users. See
and https://www.amplifi.com/ . The B&H Photo site mentioned above has the
system available for purchase.
