Summary: This Access Point needs to be upgraded by Linksys to match the power of their new routers, and it also needs to work wirelessly for it to be beneficial to most users. The literature is not great and the fact that it needs to be connected to your router by Ethernet is not immediately apparent --...
Pros: It works if it is connected via ethernet to your router so very limited.
Cons: It is a major step back from the Linksys WAP54G that had four modes, including Repeater mode that allowed you to connect to your router wirelessly, and thus be an Access Point that covered your whole house. Made the mistake that this Access Point could be configured in that manner. Signal is abou...
Cons: Buggy - does not pass through DHCP from W2K3 server - known bug - you have to run with no encryption or WEP - not a solution - no fix from Cisco - do NOT recommend and am returning. Oh and I am MCSE and 20 year network veteran.
Cons: This access point is horrible. I bought 5 of these and all had the same issue. It does not work with WPA, WPA2 or WEP authentication. They do not pass a DHCP address. You can't get a DHCP IP address from the access point, you have to specify a static IP address. Linksys forums are full with peopl...
Summary: These are not cheap access points, but for the trouble I've went through, I feel sorry for any normal user having to set these up.
Pros: I install computer networks for a living. I normally don't install this brand, but had to in a pinch and so I bought two at staples down the street from the client's house. MacBooks can stream to Apple TV.
Cons: Configuring took longer than expected due to having to run the CD wizard (or you can log into your router to see which IP was issued). I updated the firmware, setup security, took about 30 minutes each access point. When MacBooks resume from sleep, you need to allow almost 2 minutes before attemp...
Summary: There is really no reason to buy this product as you can get the same quality for 1/4 of the price from other vendors.
Pros: Small and no annoying blinking lights.
Cons: Setup wizard tried to control too much and does not give enough options. Signal is weak in both 2.4 and 5GHz bands. Even after trying to tweak the different settings in the WebUI reception was still poor. Disconnects happen frequently. This product is way over priced.
Summary: Works great. Have two of these in my house so now I can roam throughout with great wireless activity. I have one of these for over a year and got the second one yesterday. I have never had the first device reboot. Has been a great device. Would highly recommend.
Pros: Easy to set up. Small footprint.
Cons: Have to use the CD to setup the AP the first time.
