    Or more likely not working in some way. I've seen this twice already in the 50 or so stage dives I've done. Once some mud/rock was under the exhaust valve (we had a spare deco cylinder) and buddy...

    Unifi AC Pro is very good. It is just a raw AP with a pass-through port. You will need an injector to power it by PoE, unless you already have a PoE switch. This doesn't come as standard with the AC...
