Summary: I provide these for a particular customer that think Cisco is the the only thing will work for them. I personally beleive for the money i can by ten or twelve Ubiquiti units for what one of these cost and have wireless just the same.
If you want something that does everything, this is it. Be sure you understand wireless and cisco OSs, though!

Summary: I have to bring my school up from the middle 90s, and the consumer APs I had been using just wouldn't cut it for testing an entire school on-line for state tests. I spent about 8 hours setting it up the first time with 4 VLANs, WPA2 and an out-of-band management VLAN, but then I erased the config and did it again with my eyes closed in about 10 minutes. Absolutely nothing in the config is in any way related to the simple interface and setup you find in consumer units.
Make sure you order power supply and pc programing adaptor.

Summary: This is a highly recommended product but not one for your average office jockey. I don't mind purchasing the power supply separately but this wasn't available at any electronic retail outlets in Houston. So, i had to wait an extra week for the power supply. Once I got power, i learned i needed to order the adaptor. That still hasn't arrived but i'm sure it will all work out.
Summary: the web interface to set it up its horrible, very very slow and sometimes it does not take the input. Need to use the serial interface to get anything useful going. It is a high end high grade AP.
Summary: Yes, this was my first cisco AP configuration, but never thought it would be this difficult to configure. I had to dump and reload the configuration about 30 times before finally getting it right. The web interface is also extremely slow. Other than that, we've had no problems so far, and it works great!
Serious WiFi firepower, if you are serious about learning to use it

Summary: I do corporate training, and sometimes there are more than 200 WiFi radios in the room that need to connect to my equipment. After buying every kind of consumer-grade WiFi access point around, and being very disappointed at their stability under load, I took my IT guy's advice and got serious with this product. I will never, ever, waste time with the alternatives again.
Excellent product. Pricey compared to it's newer relatives.

Summary: This AP is great. It functions well, has very reliable power output, the only complaint is the price. Which often is the case when it comes to Cisco products though eh? Compared to the newer ones which are N capable at high speeds, this one would be more recommended for a lab environment. Although too expensive for a lab if you ask me.

Summary: This might be the BEST freaking AP on the market, but Cisco fails at providing any documentation. I mean come on, not everyone is a networking nerd. very down on Cisco for not thinking about this. Wasting my time trying to set this up and getting it working.
