Adding an AP to a single classroom CAT5 port
The problem with Unifi APs is that they only come with one ethernet port (eg don't have built in switches) so if I want to add on to a classroom with a single port currently feeding the teachers PC I need to either
A. Run another cable and install extra socket
B. Use a CAT5 pair of splitters/combiners to feed PC and AP (£20)
C. Add a 5 port switch (£10) plus needs an extra mains socket :(
A - not going to happen due to cost
So B or C - what do you think - what would you do based on your experience of combiner/splitters vs classroom 5 port switches.
I've always gone down the 5 port switch front in the past personally
