Setup begins by downloading and installing UniFi Controller. You will also need Java for this software.

Once we are in setup, the integrated wizard will guide you through, first by setting your time zone and country.

After running through those first few steps you will land here, likely with a white background. You can switch to dark mode on the right-hand side. From the top, the UniFi Network dashboard offers insight into your entire network from this browser window. To the left, we have Internet capacity followed by utilization numbers for each device in the chain. Further down, you will see the number of access points and clients connected. Down below each client that connects to a UniFi access point is monitored for anomalies and associating issues, including timeouts and authentication failures.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
