Tyler's Router Test System Specifications




Management GUI




To control the functionality and to set up the Ubiquiti Amplifi HD, everything goes through this app. I grabbed it from the App Store on iOS, but it is available on Android as well.





Diving right in, we begin setup of our first mesh network.




Following the steps including three previous to the one above, we have plugged in the Ethernet and WAN cables and now the power.




The first step is the app seeing your base so you can begin customization.




The first true step in the process is giving our network a name and password.




A few more steps and the setup is complete, and we can begin using our network.




The dashboard interface has a pretty good layout. The bottom shows your connected clients and their performance, while the top gives a visual of the mesh points.




There is an ISP test if you flip over to the performance tab - I reached 60/6.




The next tab is the guest network, where you can adjust the settings to the right.




Moving to the management tab, we have settings for Internet and wireless along with the option below to adjust the LED and touchscreen brightness.




Wireless settings allow you to change the band and channel, while there is a deeper menu to dive further into settings.




When I first set this system up, we had to do a quick firmware update. So testing was all done on the firmware seen in the blue lettering.
