    Ubiquiti unifi 3 packs

    Where do you get Ubiquiti unifi 3 packs form I am getting silly pricing? Also what kind of machine do you run the controller software on. I am looking at buying for a charity.

    4gon or wifigear are two "good" stockists

    As for controller, nearly anything will do.

    We've put in Unifi into three of our schools.

    School 1: 3 x Standard APs - Windows 2008 controller.
    School 2: 3 x Pro APs - Windows 2008 controller.
    School 3: 14 x Pro APs & 3 x Standard external APs - Ubuntu controller.

    We were advised to go down the ubuntu route for the larger deployment, for reliability. However, on the smaller windows deployments, we've never had an issue.
    Unifi is superb for the price. If you run radius, it can do nearly everything the bigger names can do too.
