Pros: I love these access points. Easy to hang/mount. The cluster feature (easily setup via the setup wizard) is outstanding. I am very impressed with this product. My company has six of these setup spanning 5 buildings and they are rock solid. Did I mention I like the cluster feature?
Cons: I gave this product five stars. There really aren't any cons that I can think of. Just be sure you have a POE (power over ethernet) switch in your system.
Pros: The installation and setup was super easy to get started. I have three AP's setup as a cluster and as I'm walking around the building the system automatically switches me the the best performing AP.
Summary: I had the WAP4410N out of 13 I only have 3 left since they crash without warning and drop connections all the time. These WAP321 seem much much better. I have left two of them left on in high traffic areas without a reboot for about 8 months now running one back on lastest firmware as a test and they are running great!
Pros: Stand alone AP
Cons: Requires seperate power supply purchase and or PoE injector purchase (to be expected)
Excerpt: I usually use HP business grade AP's but I was looking for something a little less expensive. Unfortunately this Cisco AP seems a bit less business grade then I would like. The mounting bracket has no ability for ceiling tile mounting like other Cisco products and is pretty cheaply made. The management interface is a little clumsy and guest networking took forever to setup properly.
Excerpt: I have installed several of these in small businesses and they work great. As for the previous review that mentions not being able to configure without a dedicated static IP. These are not difficult to program, you just have to use a little common sense. Plug it directly to a laptop and set the static IP on the laptop to the following: Static IP: 192.168.1.200 (anything but 245)Subnet: 255.255.255.0Gateway: 192.168.1.245DNS 1: 192.168.1.245 or 18.104.22.168 or anythingOpen a...
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
Pros: Great device in general. Lots of great options for a small business, including QoS and VLAN support.
Cons: The advertised speed of 300Mbps is misleading when used in the 2.4GHz range. If the 20/40MHz channel bandwidth setting is enabled, the device enforces a "good neighbor" policy if it detects a neighboring AP using a channel within +/- 40MHz (2 channels) of its own channel. What this means is that the AP drops to 20MHz and won't support speeds higher than 144Mbps. To Cisco's credit, this is compliant with the 801.11n-2012 spec and their tech support was great in helping...
Pros: *easy setup- it recieved dhcp from my comcast business router. I used belarc to find the ip for setting up my wlan ssid and passphrase (wpa) smooth. my network is faster now. I have two linksys wireless cams (wvc80n) for security recording 24x7 to a network drive and all is smooth now. I tried the Mac Airport Express (10/100 port) was not up to the job
Cons: ***I read the reviews before purchase and had a linksys power adapter around for this device does not ship with that. (?)price is kind of high. It's a Cisco though so I guess that goes with the territory. I believe we usually get what we pay for anyway. I only pay once, and I am hoping it will last longer than my privious Dlink Dap2590(a great accesspoint, except it failed after only three years)
