I have 4 ubiquiti AP's attached to Ubiquiti gateway. Been having really poor coverage and I was told to switch to Ruckus. I have a ton of dead spots due to the way the house is constructed. Anyway, I bought 4 R310's and a E510 for outside. I was going to use one of the 310 as unleashed, that way I don't have to buy a controller, however I have Crestron and other home automation stuff that is hardcoded to a 10.0.1.xx range. I can't simply attach the 310 to the internet modem and make it the unleashed master because there is no port available on the 310 to hang my crestron stuff (through a switch).
I ended up buying an el cheapo mikrotik router but I have had a hellish time configuring this to work with the Ruckus AP's. I am not sure what would be a good alternative. I am happy to spend more on a better router but I am not sure it's the router that the issue. A couple of questions.
Should the mikrotik router be in bridge mode or act like a pure router. All my AP's are hard wired through cat-5 in every room, it's not mesh. Any pointers on how to get this done?
