    Fantastic review, being wanting to do exactly this in my own house. Can I please ask where you bought the equipment from. I have found a few resellers in South Africa but would love to compare their prices compared to overseas

    • I got a really good special in December via Amazon Prime. Best price is probably via Scoop or https://www.geewiz.co.za/ (if you don’t have a reseller account with Scoop)

        Thanks, also found http://www.dbg.co.za/ to be well priced.
        You still happy with the new network? Going to take the plunge next month, looking forward to this little project!

        • Absolutely happy with Ubiquiti. The only regret I have is that I only bought a 8-port POE switch (should have gone with 24). Get the UCK and get the APs. Going forward I will put some UAP-IW (https://www.ubnt.com/unifi/unifi-ap-wall/) into my house. The management of the whole solution (especially with the USG) is fantastic. Some say you can do the same with Mikrotik, but UniFi just works with everything.

    Hi Great article thanks for sharing this. Wanted to check in to see if there have been any changes you have made since this and if there is any update on replacing the Calix if you MFN.

    Hi Question for ya,
    I was ahving the same issue with my Calix device provided by my ISP, so did the changes you made, allow the USG to obtain the public ip?
    What I did do was put the USG in the DMZ ( which hey say will make it use the public IP of the Calix) but the DDNS record I setup for the USG shows the private IP.
