Summary: Despite what others have said, this WAP can be used without a controller server. It will accept the AP1131 firmware and once flashed it will perform EXACTLY like the stand alone $800 version (which as far as I can tell, is the same exact hardware).
Summary: Excellent condition, exactly as advertised. Solid coverage for my home wifi network. Doesn't natively support WPA2 or WPA for security, so you will need RADIUS or WLC to provide good security.
Summary: I choose a rating of 3 on this one because of how much I struggled with getting it to work. I am a field engineer and have used it for my CCNA wireless exam. I had to reset the firmware @ 4 times and reset it to factory settings.
Summary: I had an initial problem with the original AP (it appears as if the wrong one was ordered) and Newfangled Networks didn't just re-ship the new product, they contact me to determine what was the issue and not only identified the problem but re-shipped the new AP.
