Great Access Points

Anonymous, Newegg
16 March 2007
  • Summary: One of the few "old" models that can be utilised in both standalone and "lightweight" mode. This is a great unit!
  • Pros: One of the best access points I've ever had the pleasure to work with. Extremely stable and highly configurable, integrates extremely well with other Cisco gear in an enterprise environment. I have had several of these units running for *years* non-stop. One of the few upgradable APs - start with just a "b/g" radio and add an "a" radio when you need it. Cisco could (theoretically) develop an "n" radio once the standard is fixed.
  • Cons: A little bulky. Cisco "pre-standard" POE, not 802.3af. Can be difficult to configure if you have no Cisco experience.

A great AP (like all other Cisco products)

Daniel F., Newegg
16 December 2006
  • Pros: Great performance, both in speed and range, great support on Cisco's site, thousands of MIBs for SNMP monitoring everything you'd want from an access point. It has never crashed on me before, something that I cannot say about my old Linksys WRT54G. You won't find another AP with more features than this one, besides maybe the Cisco 1242AG. I've got mine upgraded with an A radio, so I can provide both 802.11g and 802.11a in the same AP.
  • Cons: The CLI can be pretty complex if you've never dealt with Cisco stuff before. But, I found that the web interface gets the job done in a very intuitive way.

  • Summary: Top-of-the-line wireless access point, geared towards enterprise (not consumer) use.
  • Pros: Highest available radio quality, range and security.
  • Cons: You really need to know what you're doing to set it up with security.

Top Notch Enterprise Grade AP

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2006
  • Summary: I have had several of these deployed throughout my company, in *continuous* operation for many months. Many consumer-grade APs required resets at regular intervals to stay operational in our environment and had problems handling simultaneous user loads above 10 or so.
  • Pros: Extremely flexible Rock-Solid Stable High power, long range Great throughput even with multiple users Upgradable to 5GHz (802.11a) Radio
  • Cons: Complex GUI/CLI All the options can be very daunting for the novice user. Cisco proprietary PoE

  • Cons: Missing required antennae; Customer service SUCKS
