AMPLIFI AFI-HD Reviews

Not performing as expected

By Tom
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-07

I bought this for both performance results as well as using the mesh points. I have a 2 story house with an occupied basement (3 floors). I put the main unit on the 1st floor, and a mesh point in the 2nd floor and basement. After about 9 months of usage, we unplugged the upstairs mesh point and doing use it. It's performance will start nice, but after a couple of weeks, it would degrade to the point of being unusable. The only way to recover was to reboot the mesh point - and eventually we realized that the performance of anything connected with the mesh was better if it went straight to the main unit. Even so, we have to reboot our main Amplifi router about once a month to recover from poor performance. It's irritating - as the standard cable router performed better, with better throughput/performance - than the Amplifi router. We still have the mesh point in our basement as there is areas where the mesh is the only solution. And each month, on the 1st of the month, we simply reboot everything. Shame - the software is pretty nice, but I regret buying this thing.

My old router actually can reach further!

I had an older cable router that I used some range extenders in order to fill dead spots. With the Amplifi, the mesh points interact just fine - except for very poor throughput. If I turn off the mesh points, I get a weaker signal, but the throughput is much faster. I am now resetting mesh points or the whole router every 2-3 weeks. With my old router, I would do this about once a quarter. I am getting poorer throughput, sketchy connections, and am resetting it more often. I spent a lot of money for something that doesn't work as well and is more troublesome. But the mesh part of the router (just having one access point instead of dealing with range extenders) works just fine, hence 2 stars. I'm ready to chuck this thing.

AMPLFI AFI POOR SUPPORT CHAT ONLY - OF NO HELP.

By Bob
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-30

TRIED since October to get this to work for my modem/ Spectrum ISP. Never could get them to help me. Wasted money! No accommodation from B&H because I did not save the original packaging. Been a customer for years and never had an issue that B&H could or would not help me with. I think the system is way better than my ability to get it to work - but that doesn't help me any. Chat only! support. I believe a 10 min. support tech call would save this failure.

Great router with stronger wifi access points

Was using older version of AMPLIFI router without remote access points. This setup is very strong and fast. Was easy to drop in without any issues. Where I had no access prior in my outside shop, now I have strong connectivity. Would recommend.

Easy setup, great coverage

I had a Netgear Nighthawk set up in roughly the middle of our house, but we still had some places with poor WiFi performance. I saw this on one of the B&H daily specials so bought it. Setup was very easy, just run the app and plug in the central box, set a name and password and wait a few minutes for updates. The meshpoint units are easy as well, just plug them into a power outlet and they do the rest. The WiFi is now great throughout the house. In one of the previously bad spots using the same laptop I went from unreliable with the Netgear to 70 MBps. The only thing I don't know at the moment is how these units hold up over the long term.

Nothing is perfect but this comes close.

This is a big improvement over my Frontier modem/router. Advertising coverage for a castle size home might be a bit of a stretch. It covers my 2500 sq. ft. home well enough but I'm considering a 3rd satellite because it doesn't reach everywhere. Brain dead easy install but then you have to direct all your devices over to the new wi-fi source. No documentation in the box not even a quick start guide. But the online resources are thorough. An alert should be made right away regarding when to use Bridge Mode and what that is all about. It seems in bridge mode you lose several capabilities that appear to be rather useful. The main router looks very sexy. The satellites not so much but at least they aren't ugly. I like the Amplifi app. It shows signal strength and anything else you'd want to know for every device on your network.

Solid Reliability for a Home Solution

For years I've been a user of the Ubiquiti line of network hardware. Having moved into a rental, the Amplifi HD solutions provides me with the reliability I am used to and great coverage.

Depending if the buildings are extremely close this can be possible. However if you are sending it a considerable distance a Point to Point system from Ubiquiti might perform better.

question

will this product works anywhere in the world? outside the US continent?
Asked by: Willy S.
This version of the AMPLIFI AFi-HD AmpliFi High Density Router is designed for use within the United States. If you intend to use it elsewhere you would need power transformers. Also note that you would need to verify with your local government that it is legal to use the frequencies, or that the proper licenses are obtained.

question

My house is 4 levels and over 6000 sq feet will this be enough or will I need more plug in extenders?
Asked by: Anonymous
Depends on the age of the home as well. Mine is three floors, 7,400 square feet and build in 1927. The walls are very thick brick and the second floor is concrete, but we made it work with only a few dead spots. I think I will eventually add 2 points for better coverage in the front of the house and the backyard. This is the best wireless I've ever had, so I think it's worth the risk and you can add another mesh point in the future if you need it. You can also play around with locations, so you can make sure the most important points are covered.
