Poor WiFi

Haso Keric, Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: Despite being on 2.04 the WiFi is very poor - also Cisco recommends you place a Hotspot every 200ft. Heck my 20$ router from bestbuy handles more then 200ft.

Utter Crap!

Philfy Phil, Amazon
21 September 2011
  • 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.

Excellent Management options, but it does not work

ITMan, Amazon
6 August 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.

Fantastic device once upgraded to latest firmware

Brandon, Amazon
15 July 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.

Disgraceful Technology

I. Hunter, Amazon
25 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this unit to replace a Linksys unit which has limited range. The Cisco wireless access point was expensive but their promotional literature claimed a much wider range than other units. The Cisco unit works for a few hours then fails even when you are close by.

Solid access point when on the latest firmware

Matt C, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • Summary: Cisco had a lot of bugs with early firmware, since this is their first Linux based access point. However, if you run their latest firmware (1.9 as of this writing), the device is rock solid. I replaced some older 2.4GHz-only access points with the AP541N, and so far, it's been great.

Wi-Fi is very poor.

Rafael Alves, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • 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.

Upgraded the firmware, then works beautifully!

Razzle D, Amazon
16 May 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
14 May 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.
