Rock Solid

Neil M., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I had an issue with the channel auto-detect feature and had to turn it off, I suspect this was due to a nearby AP that our devices were picking up but the AP couldn't see. It worked fine for years prior to that.
  • Pros: This thing is great as an AP, has many enterprise/managed features and Gigabit for a good price. I've had it for at least 5 years now. When properly placed covers my whole 3400 sq. ft. (2 story + basement) house.
  • Cons: Can't connect both PoE and outlet power and expect it to switch to whatever one is available without a manual unplug. Unable to set a management VLAN ID, management traffic is just untagged. Had one of the antennas get loose a couple years ago, but it still works.

Excellent Wiresless Access Point

Robert M., Newegg
10 April 2013
  • Summary: Quick shipments, good prices and great customer service by newegg.com is always a winning combination! Thank you!
  • Pros: Have used the EnGenius ECB9500 in multiple locations and with multiple clients in Wireless Access Point mode. Works well. Easy to setup. Reasonable price and 0 failures in 20+ deployments!
  • Cons: Tried one as in WAP/router mode. Could not get it to work as a WAP/router. Would not NOT recommend for this use.

Hit me baby one more time

Christopher H., Newegg
18 March 2013
  • Summary: These things are rock solid, we use them again and again with only a few failures and mis-boxings (like the wrong antannea, yes it is a chinese company). They are cheap, support POE, and once you learn how to configure them they rock.
  • Pros: Rock solid, auto reset, good distance and performance, enterprise features included
  • Cons: The new features arent yet included in this model so dont expect fancy network management tools for easy deployment. Setup is Not for Beginners

Great Product

Steve M., Newegg
30 October 2012
  • Summary: I have purchased 2 of these, and was happy enough with the first unit, that a year later when I needed a 2nd AP for an expansion, I purchased the same unit again!
  • Pros: Using 2 Units in AP Mode: Easy Install, 1Gb LAN Interface, Detachable Antennas
  • Cons: Wish it was multiband...

AP Mode Works Great

Neil M., Newegg
9 July 2012
  • Pros: This works great in AP mode. I've setup multiple VLANs/SSIDs and it works as promised.
  • Cons: One of the antennas seems to have come loose, but it still functions. When using VLANs, the web interface only works with untagged traffic on the ethernet port, so you can't configure it over wifi unless you have it connected to a router/switch that is setup correctly for that. Typically WAPs and...

Rock Solid Device

Daniel H., Newegg
13 January 2012
  • Summary: I am using a couple of these as Client Bridges and again they are performing without flaw. As long as Engenius continues to put out this quality I will never purchase a different brand... Finally... So long Netgear... you junk vendors!
  • Pros: Price is right. Function is Right. Rock solid performance. This thing is fast. I have it setup to do Radius Authentication, Multiple SSIDs and VLANs. It runs circles aroung the WG302v2 Netgears it's replacing. The only thing good about the netgears was the steel chassis...they always needed reboo...

Dustin

Dustin B., Newegg
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I see alot of comments saying how there is poor documentation and bad gui. It is not a bad gui. It is simple. And there is not much documentation because it is not needed. If you wanted a router. Buy a router. If you want an access point/client bridge/repeater then buy this.
  • Pros: This device does exactly what it says. The setup is simple and range is larger than i expected by far.
  • Cons: None.
