The good the bad and the ugly

Steve B., Newegg
30 May 2013
  • Summary: Over the last few years I have purchased about 60 of the Engenius PoE smoke detector style units for work and a couple other models for home (most recently the ESR750H). With the high failure rate we're no longer buying Engenius and instead are replacing them as they die with business WAPs from Ruckus (so far 0 failures and much more sophisticated but they're also more $$$).
  • Pros: - Definitely high power; our warehouse units reach as far 150 ft away through concrete walls. We've had to turn the power down on some units close to walls with adjoining tenants because of complaints our wireless network was overpowering theirs.
  • Cons: - Poor quality/longevity. We've experienced over 25% failure rate between 6 & 18 months. The ones under 12 months are covered by warranty but it's still annoying as many of these units are on 24' warehouse ceilings.

So Far So Good

jazpiano, TigerDirect.com
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I've had this access point in service for about three weeks now. It has good coverage and great connectivity. The POE feature is a huge plus and setup was relatively easy. I'm in the process of adding four more identical units to our existing network for wi-fi coverage throughout our facility.

  • Pros: Best Access Point on the market for the money. Looks are very sleek and blends into the wall. This unit lives up to its title, "Long Range"

Too bad...

Anonymous, Newegg
7 September 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunate that it has these problems. Could have been my no. 1 choice for indoor AP's.
  • Pros: Great, strong signal. Lots of features. Power output setting. Easy to use.
  • Cons: Not compatible with Logitech Harmony Link. Data connection with the Link drops after minutes or hours. Also seems to have problems at times with Apple devices. Needs wi-fi to be toggled on/off to get back the Logitech/Apple device.

Good, but limited MAC filter

Matt K., Newegg
24 April 2012
  • Summary: The EAP350 offers the more powerful MAC filtering (allow / deny access lists), yet the product description regarding that feature is worded exactly the same as the EA300. The EAP350 is based on the much higher quality chipset, Atheros.
  • Pros: Reliable (with latest firmware 1.2.3.), good feature set, sleek look, PoE compatible. Pretty blinky lights.
  • Cons: Realtek chipset (this is advertised as a business-grade AP). For MAC filtering, you can only specify a list of MAC addresses to allow, there is no way to deny a MAC address or list of addresses. Such a feature is available on nearly all other access points and even home routers on the market.

Excellent WAP

Steven C., Newegg
23 April 2012
  • Summary: This model has a 10/100 network connection. The EAP350 has a gigabit connection.
  • Pros: I bought this to use at home, to replace the wireless function of a Linksys WTRG-54 wireless router, with the goal of faster wireless and better coverage in my average sized house (2 stories + basement). This product delivered in both areas. I mounted it on a wall on the ground level floor of my house and I get full signal strength in every room of my house. I'm sure my neighbors can even get a signal, hehe. The user interface is very intuitive and easy to use. I was ...
  • Cons: The cons are minor, and do not effect the performance of the device.

At Last

Michael C., Newegg
17 April 2012
  • Pros: This device has awesome coverage and a feature set which tops that of its competitors. I installed this in a retail environment and have coverage in the entire store on 2 floors. I would greatly recommend it to anyone looking for an Access Point.

Probably more than necessary for a house

Thomas D., Newegg
8 April 2012
  • Pros: Works really well -- good coverage all over the house, and fills in the gaps left by the wireless router.
  • Cons: none -- once you upgrade the firmware.

Great Product for WDS

Keri E., Newegg
6 March 2012
  • Summary: I recommend downloading the latest firmware on them all and you will be good to go.
  • Pros: We got a dozen of these and setup in WDS mode to provide wireless access throughout an assisted living facility. They worked great and setup was very easy. POE is a plus, it saved us from having to run electrical. Just need a good POE switch. The Trendnet ones worked good for us. Range and speed are excellent.
  • Cons: none
