    I was tempted but I want a 48P. I already have a 24 port that's full and i'd prefer to replace it as opposed to run two. It also is super expensive shipping/tax wise to bring them into Canada.

    I don't think that auction was a 24-P, looks non-POE to me but they listed as 24-P...SMH, still a good deal and looked especially clean/straight but someday I will pickup a 6450-24P when they are less than $100 again...not in any hurry, I still have a spare 6610-24P sitting on the shelf MUAHAHAHA

    Good catch, sorry I didn't catch that. Still not a bad deal though.

    I am constantly having WI-FI issues with my Ubiquiti UniFi AP-AC-Pro connected to the ICX6610 switch. It is mainly with my wife's Peloton bike.

    What can I do to troubleshoot the issue in more detail? I may try to connect the Peloton bike to a dedicated switch to determine if the ICX6610 is the issue.

    Other option maybe to get another brand of APs.

    On another hard wired box, ping the UAP-AC and leave it running. What would be ideal to determine is, if there is any packet loss to the AP itself, or if the problem exists solely between the UAP and the Bike.

    Are you running your ssid with both 2.4 and 5ghz on the same ssid? Try creating another ssid dedicated solely to 2.4ghz and configure the Peloton to use that. The UAP (if running a UAP controller software) also has lots of info to help determine what's up. Explore that. Did you get the UAP after the 6610 or before? If before, was it working fine before the 6610?

    I would find it very surprising if the 6610 caused problems for one device on wifi while all others are ok. This seems unlikely. Other things can cause havoc, eg at my old house when my neighbors had a kid, my 2.4ghz wifi went to hell as they had a wireless baby monitor on the same frequency. Regardless of the channel, it was crap. Once I moved to a less densely populated area, the exact same wifi router was totally fine.

    Yes.. I am running 2.4 and 5ghz on the same SSID... I got the UAP before the 6610. They were working fine with my Juniper EX3300 switches...

    The wi-fi issues is mostly with the Peloton bike. For right now to troubleshoot the peloton issue, my wife is using hotspot for the next couple of days.

    FYI.. I have 3 of the UAP-ACs.. Two upstairs and 1 in the garage.

    if you're no longer running the DHCP server on the switch, it's definitely not the switch

    Yeah that's a strange one. If you have dhcp on still that could certainly cause issues. Other than that you need to diagnose where the breakdown is.

    I'm also looking at replacing the stock fans, which are a bit loud for living room use. Unfortunately I don't have any 40mm fans left over, so I need to order some. I'm also looking at the Delta fans as an option, but I'd also love to hear opinions about the longevity of the switch when running with less optimal airflow. My original plan of chucking a pair of Noctuas in the thing is probably not a wise one considering their lack of headroom if the switch needed additional cooling.

    Unless it remembers my login really well that link to http ruckus docs works for me.

    However I need to store a local copy ASAP just in case that changes!

    You guys know these docs have been in the firmware zip on the update guide since day 1 right

    Your link is also an older admin guide, latest 8030 admin guide is 8030p, which again is in the fw zip
