[ale] [OT] Wifi router time again



I've got an Edgerouter Pro 8 as my main gateway.  My main beef with it is
that it has no "switch' chip hardware so you can't bridge multiple ports
(or if you do it wont switch at hardware speed).

I've also got and ER-X which does have a switch chip, but it's not
rack-mount.

Also, I just installed and deployed 3 Unifi AC-AP-Nano access points.

The Unifi Controller makes deploying the APs pretty easy.  The hardest
part was coming up with my networking plan.  Pushing it out was as simple
as pushing a button on the webapp.
