Summary: I bought this to replace a Cisco/Linksys E4500 which was failing. What a difference! The power I'm seeing from this is incredible. I can actually use my 5GHz now and it is almost as strong as the 2.4GHz. I have it in the basement aiming up and it is covering the whole house. The configuration is a bit different and I had to look up a couple of items in the manual to make sure how to configure them properly.
Summary: I initially had a Engenius 300 Mbps Access point which used to hang for no apparent reason once every few days. When it was working the performance was great. Decided to exchange it with an Ubiquity access point, the prime consideration being the captive portal support for Ubiquity. The Ubiquity product was a disaster as it dropped by access speeds to 1/2 of what I was getting from the Engenius when it worked.
Summary: I bought two of these for work. We've tried quite a number of access points (or routers with DHCP disabled so they effectively act as access points) over the last few years and they've either died prematurely or lock up and need to be rebooted often. This EnGenius is the first we've tried that has been absolutely rock solid, and given us much better coverage to boot.
Summary: Replaced a dual band Apple Airport Extreme with this unit. I'd give it 5 stars, but it just misses in a few places... The range is great, the speed is great and it mounts on a wall or ceiling quite easily. The unit if full of features. You can set it and forget it if you aren't tech savvy, or if you are, you can go nuts with multiple SSIDs, frequencies, channels, etc...It's truly a full featured Access Point.
Summary: This is a great device. Lots of features. 5 Ghz range is bad, but I've found 5 Ghz to be bad on all access points I've used. But that's the nature of 5 Ghz. Anyway, the only device I could recommend that's better than this is the Cisco Aironet access points, but they start at twice the price.
Summary: I'm not "techie" at all but this thing was a snap to install. Plugged it into my switch, followed the instructions and BAM!!! I live in a steel framed two story house and WiFi was terrible if it worked at all.......weak signal and always slow, in some parts of the house we didn't have WiFi at all. Installed the EnGenius and now I have a full WiFi signal no matter where i am in my house.....even outside where we NEVER EVER had WiFi before. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
Summary: Works well unless you're using Intel's Wi-Fi adapter. All the laptops with Broadcom chips connect easily and stay connected at high speed. Intel's chips seem to have problems. AP itself covers a huge area in a very busy environment and works well so can't complain.
