Utter Crap!

Philfy Phil "philfyphil", Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: This has to be the worst wireless product ever. I have two of these and they both have the same issue, and I've battled with them for about two years. This cannot be a Cisco product!. Firmware is at level 2.04, the last ever released. After a few days, sometimes a few weeks (but not many), communication is lost. I need to power cycle it to get it back up again. Sometimes it takes several power cycles.

Wi-Fi is very poor.

Rafael Alves, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Wi-Fi connectivity is very poor. Had this product for less than 20 days and it was enough to had it returned. Connection drops and low throughput are among the bad side of this device. Cisco could have done a much better job on this Security Appliance.

Works as advertised

Nathan Stone, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: We wanted to move to 802.11n in the 5GHz frequency and ended up going with two of these in a busy medical practice. I love the fact that I only have to configure one unit and the other automatically updates its settings. We have had no performance issues and are getting ready to purchase three more once our new construction is completed.

Upgraded the firmware, then works beautifully!

Russell, Amazon
1 October 2011
  • Summary: Had a few minutes of trouble at first, but after upgrading the device to the newest firmware, this thing runs like a champ. I am considering replacing all of our old AiroNets with Cisco Ap 541N access points. It has been going solid for 4 months without a single blip.

Worst AP Ever. DON'T BUY!

C. Wing, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: This product was purchased to be used in a corporate environment and to sum it up, it doesn't work well. It works much worse and is much slower than a $90 consumer router, Asus RT-N16 that is loaded up with Tomato firmware. I am running the latest iOS firmware on the Cisco AP 541N and it is disappointing to see the least. I was hopeful that it would fix the problem, but was pretty sure that it would not.

Excellent Management options, but it does not work

ITMan, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: We purchased this unit to replace a Lincsys router/AP in our office. The unit has excellent range and excellent management options. However, it does not function properly. We have it operating in mixed-mode 2.4Ghz and after a few people connect to it, it stops working. After a restart, the unit works again for a little while and then it crashes again. I have searched the Web for issues related to the Access Point and others are having the exact same issue.

Fantastic device once upgraded to latest firmware

Brandon, Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: When this first came out apparently it sucked, but I deployed five of these in a clustered environment all with the latest firmware and they were incredible. Excellent signal, no reported dropped connections in over 3 months of use, excellent clustering support. Highly recommended for medium sized businesses.
