Start as simple as you can, Hitron-router. Bypass the switch and plug any ONE of your upstairs cables directly into the router. Go upstairs and see if that port works.


Just had a thought...if you plug a network cable into a switch, and it loops somewhere else...say someone has plugged a cable from one port into another that can reek havoc. Or someone pounded a nail through a wire and is causing a short, or wired a port incorrectly. A surefire sign of this is all the lights flashing away on the switch, in snyc with each other. So as suggested, bypassing the switch should solve that.


If you can make the simple network work, unplug everything from the switch, and re-connect one at a time. You should be able to pin down where the issue is. If you can't make the basic setup work, try new network cables.


And if your network is showing 3 and you only have 2, you may want to just factory reset everything and start from scratch. Starting with one...
Nope, it wasn't a loop. Of all the things I have thought of and tested, it was something insanely simple and stupid. I realized there was an important ethernet cable that wasn't plugged in... I must have disconnected it to test something or replace the cable and forgot to plug it back in + assumed it was plugged in.

If multiple AmpliFi HD routers are on the same AmpliFi HD mesh network, the secondary routers are then automatically set as access points. For $30 more, I chose to grab more routers than pay for the sword looking access points. Plus I believe the routers have more features than the repeater access points anyways.

My set up is working like a charm now that stupidity has not prevailed.

My set up is going to be similar to your Deco set up, except I only have one AP instead of 2. I'll have a ton of IOT things plugged into a switch at one of the AP instead of a desktop and printer.


EDIT: Random musing... something truly bizarre happening. Fast.com isn't showing good results. I've been getting 14-26 on fast.com but 114/15 on Ookla (Same computer). I am quite sure the DL speeds are closer to Ookla than Fast.com. I wonder why there is such a huge difference in tested speeds lately.

Woob has the setup correct. The switch has to go after the parent node for the system to work.

I have a question about wifi and I'm not sure if it's my Ubiquiti AmpliFi set up or something else.

The Amplifi routers currently broadcast two wifi SSID. One is essentially DoubleF and the second is DoubleF-5g. DoubleF-5g will on occasion disappear from being broad casted, but DoubleF remains. When only DoubleF remains, I am still getting 5G speeds.

Did I mess up a setting on the router? Is the -5g SSID being pulled into the regular SSID to avoid a double NAT issue? I'm not sure what to look up in terms of figuring out what the problem is.
