I'm building a Protect + UniFi WiFi system using the CKG2+
The dashboard is telling me I can't access network information (or similar message) because I don't have a USG.
Do I require a USG for this system to work, or can I install my own router/firewall, without losing functionality (as I planned) ?
I thought the USG's were being phased out or something, so I'm a Little unsure what to do.
It's my 1st proper UniFi system, so far it's going ok, I just didn't expect to have to include a USG, as I've never used one, and not 100% sure what they actually do. From what I gather, they're just a router/firewall yeah?

Some information is collected from the USG, others from UniFi switches and rest from the UniFi APs. So if you want all the info you can get in the controller you will need to have all UniFi components.

If you are interested in seeing an active (simulated) controller with USG, USWs and UniFi APs, take a look at https://demo.ui.com/
