I bought a UniFi wireless access point. Expensive but supposed to be about the nicest you can get for the money. I have high hopes.
Anyway, I was a little worried about getting it set up using their software as so much of the talk was Windows centered. I didn’t need to worry.
This article gave me the commands I needed to install the software and run it on Ubuntu natively.
First add this repository:
deb http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/unifi/debian stable ubiquiti
Then run these commands in sequence (make sure you are up to date before you begin).
## # # First get the key for the repository you just added sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv C0A52C50 # Update your repository lists and install unifi sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unifi # Check to see unifi is running sudo service unifi status ##

When you first visit the controller, it will walk you through a basic set up process. That’s pretty much it.
