    Small (but important?) correction: the Features table on page 1 lists "No" next to MU-MIMO.

    Hardware design looks better, though still electrolytics.

    Bandsteering but no auto-channel management? And strange still no DFS.

    Do these APs support tagged management VLAN? If so, that's a convenient advantage over Ubiquiti Unifi APs, who only support untagged.

    I believe in the cons summary it states there are no bandwidth controls for clients, if you install the omada software (im assume it uses the same as EAP245 which i am using) on a pc then you have the option to do this for clients and each access point.
    https://www.tp-link.com/ae/faq-914.html I can confirm it works as expected.

    when will the omada cloud controller be released. Its a needed feature to remotely monitor and see the usage and clients connected.

    Is there any upper limit on this AP say 100 /200 etc?

    I verified with TP-Link that DFS is not supported.

    The review states that you installed 2.2 FW. Latest I see is 2.1 dated 2018-04-12. Am I missing something?

    With the 5.8 branch of the Unifi controller (just came out with a stable release candidate) and the latest firmware, Unifi APs finally support a management VLAN.

    I have this ap, and I see a lot of tx errors on the 5g band but the 2g seems fine. Has anyone else noticed this issue? Also are those errors represented in bytes or packets?

    I have installed acrylic WiFi and choose the best channel in my area. I do have other channels broadcasting in that range but not that strong.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I have 2 of those at home and I just checked my stats; I'm seeing the same thing as you. Not sure what to adjust.

    I just rebooted one of my access points, which cleared the stats. With no device connected to 5gHz I show similar errors on the 5gHz service. Makes me think this might be a meaningless stat.

    I have had the indoor & ourdoor version of these AP's for 4 months now - was working great via the OMADA Controller utility.
    Then I switched routers from a flashed TMO 68U to an Asus RT-86U & now I can't get the controller nor the separate discovery utility to find & adopt these AP's.

    Can only configure them via the web UI directly into their IP addresses.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks for confirming, I have reached out to TP-Link and they say they are not able to reproduce it in their labs. I think the device does have an issue, should have gone with the unifi line.

    How are folks finding these new AP's roam when using multiples? Was looking to have one on my main floor, one on my upper floor, and one outside in a cabana.
