Enterprise quality wireless for your office or home
31 January 2012
Summary: Excellent wireless device, much better than the older models or home versions. This allows us to setup multiple access points that you can move between without disconnecting and reconnecting. We have tried with other home style equipment and it really didn't do the job. I have deployed these in a few different houses and two of them can cover very large areas.
Summary: Make sure this is the one you want! I accidentally purchased this when I was looking for the stand alone AP. Notice the difference in the model number(AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9). This means it's the LAP version, which requires a controller device and doesn't work as stand alone. I was able however to configure it for being a stand alone AP using the other reviews from reviewers who also got the wrong one.
Summary: I don't understand why people purchase enterprise level devices like this access point for their homes or apartments and complain when it doesn't work out of the box. This 1131AG is meant to be used in a networked environment, specifically in combination with a WLAN controller. When the WLAN controller is configured properly, this 1131AG will auto-configure itself as soon as it is given ethernet and broadcast all SSID's on the controller.
Summary: I purchased it for residential use. Clearly a good product, however, you'll need a networking specialist to set this up. The product did not include any instructions on how to configure. Quite complicated configuration for the average residential use.
Excerpt: Utilizzo questo access point in casa da 4 anni e devo dire che non ha dimostrato nessun segno di cedimento. Si tratta di un prodotto professionale non paragonabile ai prodotti disponibili nei centri commerciali ad uso domestico, né per prestazioni, né per qualità costruttiva. Le plastiche con cui è costruito, nonché i connettori e il resto, sono di qualità ben al di sopra di quanto ci si possa aspettare.
Pros: performance elevate, installazione semplice per prodotto enterprise
