    Supermicro 5019S-ML $131.99 + Shipping

    I managed to place an order but no.confirmation and no charge on my card. Last time this happened with CDW I had to inquire about the order a week or two later. They just said “sorry that item is no longer available”.

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    It is a large house but two AP’s cover a majority. Just want more even coverage and some outdoor spill of Wi-Fi.

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    If anyone is interested, Amazon has the 4x4 version of these listed for $199, but they are backordered. I bought some more to blanket the house in AX goodness. I have plenty of attic space to run wires for new AP locations. Any recommendations on how to determine e where to put these other than...

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    Mine are up and running. After upgrading the switch/controller firmware, it was a piece of cake. Very fast 600Mbps speeds up close but drop off significantly with distance. Pretty good range though, subjectively.

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    Gotcha. I didn’t realize power could be injected over a greater than 1Gbps copper line...

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    I guess you plan on plugging these in for power rather than POE then. The Engenius switch/controllers might make configuration simpler, though for a couple switches probably not an issue. I’ve got to manage 5!

    Are there 2.5GBase-T SFP+ modules?

    Do these happen to be the Engenius EWS357AP or EWS377AP? I picked up a couple “demo” units after my Ruckus ZoneDirector 1100 died during a power outage. They’re coming in tomorrow. I needed an excuse to try something beyond 802.11n (Wi-Fi 4?). Other Enterprise gear seemed much more pricey.

    Brocade ICX6450-C12-PD L3 PoE switch. Auction, no bids yet, ~2hrs remaining, starting: $105

    The data sheet for the 6450 series states that stacking is not supported on the C models, in case that’s what you meant by “playing nice” with existing Brocade setups. It would have to be managed independently.

    Ruckus R600 Open Box $160 shipped

    I’m happy with my setup, don’t get me wrong. Just contemplating upgrading to AC. Last I checked R700’s were still too much, but $100 would be doable. I need more than a couple.

    Ruckus R600 Open Box $160 shipped

    I would jump on this if I didn't already have an older Ruckus ZD1100 with 7982's in place. The EOL ZD1100 doesn't support anything newer than the R700, and it seems the R600 is newer. Waiting for a deal like this on some R700's but by then I may be better off running newer AP's unleashed!
