Is it possible to bridge an AirCube AC to an existing wireless network? or do they only bridge to another AirCube?
I've tried everything I can think of on both an Asus and 2-Wire WiFi routers with no luck. I am running the latest firmware Maybe this POS is broken?

Apologies, I may have mislead with my draytek comment - I have the airCube AC bridged to the draytek by wire and that works fine. I did some testing to bridge and repeat wirelessly and like you, I couldnt get that to work either. Sorry if I mislead.

I don't think my AirCube AC didn't repeat the signal either. None of the IPs I assigned to the AirCube, laptop or IP camera would register on my network.
I am hoping to make a wireless bridge to my garage for some IP cameras. Running cable is not really an option as I would have about 120' of buried cable.
Eventually I may do a longer bridge(guessing about 1000') to a remote location if I can get this to work.

I fond this incredibly frustrating. There is no need to require WDS for the source AP (not to mentioned this is not the year 2005)
If this worked, like any other repeater, it would be the PERFECT solution for so many use cases. Specifically since you can make one band or the other be the uplink.

If this is for WISP and not to connect to existing WiFi APs, then don't state that's what it does in the product description.
Can you only bridge between AirCubes? If it can't do that then Ubiquiti has misrepresented this product and it is a POS that I've wasted my money on.
Hopefully someone else will chime in that has some better information on what this AirCube can really do.

Well, I am not saying all the same thing as the last poster.
But, I do think it’s important that it’s made clear these can only use WDS in uplink mode.
‘’Are there any plans to make them able to repeat any WiFi AP?

While I understand its not my call. It really seems like this is a great example of a good time to listen to your customers.
Allow the device to repeat any wifi signal (without using WDS), like every device in the world that can bridge, is a good idea and would make this device significantly more useful.

Thats something, that was already working well, but now...???
