Summary: This was the first experience with EnGenius. The device and web UI felt solid. I may go with one of their longer range devices and see how that goes. As a pure AP, this device is too expensive. If you need another mode, that may be a different story. I see folks complaining about documentation. It's adequate enough. Not overly verbose, there is an expected level of user knowledge.
Pros: VLAN tagging per SSID Simple web interface Played with it a lot in the few days I had it and it was solid - nothing strange happened. Can see client strength 0-100% from web interface - nice touch.
Cons: Signal strength is no better than my old wap54g which I was looking to replace. Even with all of the new bells and whistles it wasn't worth the upgrade, so I am returning it.
Summary: It never can bring the long range as advertised, bearly from my first floor to 2nd floor in wood build house, which is less than 50 ft, the connection speed reduced dramatically, which is not usable. Don't have too much time to deal with it, returned both EnGenius ENH500 Business-Class and this one.
Pros: Well advertised and described on website.
Cons: Signals dropped very low in short distance even in upstairs, not as good as my own Verizon router. Poorly written manuals.
Summary: It supports PoE, but doesn't come with the equipment to make use of it, just a standard AC adapter.
Pros: Overall seems like a solid access point and router for Wifi normal traffic.
Cons: No wired switch ports, only a WAN port. Web interface is obnoxious and slow and poorly organized. Utterly useless as a WiFi repeater. Even 3 feet away from the router it was repeating it refused to connect higher than 15 Mbps according to its own web interface, even though it was connecting to another identical router as itself running in AP mode, at 802.11N speeds. Very poor and inconsistent latency and speed even within normal 802.11N range when repeating.
Cons: I bought this WAP to for its "long range" capabilities. Well it has none. It works the same as my 35 dollar Asus router. What a dissapointment. I might as well have stayed with my cheap little ASUS. It's going back to the store.
