Several months ago I upgraded my entire Ethernet network to Ubiqity’s UNIFI equipment to resolve hardware failures and maximize my client’s ability to take advantage of the 1Gbps ISP symmetrical up/down fiber connection. I got hooked using their beta firmware releases so I never know whether the issues I occasionally experience are caused by network issues or ST, or something else.
I am looking for feedback from other UNIFI users on any particular settings they use to ensure best ST performance and to avoid any of the new firewall features from interfering with ST’s ability to communicate over the internet.
There is another thread in this community that talks about ports and UPnP. I always turn off UPnP as it interferes with my regular port forwarding and is often regarded as a security hole. I do not intentionally block any of the ports either so all should be set up properly. However, lately I just get the impression that latency has gone through the roof and everything seems just slow in reacting. Other random issues, such as Alexa taking ages to do simple things and most often telling me that ST is not responding, also made me wonder whether there may be other contributing factors to my issues such as my connection to the internet.
