Great when they work... defective way too frequently.

Summary: This review should carry a lot of weight since I'm an IT consultant for over 100 small businesses... These things are great... when they work. I've purchased easily over a dozen of them because the problems aren't immediately apparent.
Great for a single VLAN, problematic with multiple VLANs and SSIDs
17 June 2015
Summary: When this device works on a single VLAN, it works excellent, no issues. Once you create multiple SSIDs and assign them to different VLANs, it appears that the processor can't handle the load. I've sent back two so far and I'm about to send back the third.
Summary: Tried to contact EnGenius support (714) 432-8668 (number listed on their support page) line is dead. Purchased this because of all the positive reviews but I have to RMA.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: -Every time I leave the wireless range I have to manually disconnect then reconnect -Signal was not stable (keeps dropping) even after a few factory resets -When my mac pro retina wakes up, it takes at least 3 minutes before I am able to connect to the wireless -Had a lot of issues connecting sur...
Excerpt: We purchased a couple of these to replace some other vednors wireless units some one else installed in the hotel. These units have dual band and high power output. The hotel we are using them in has 3 floors we placed them in the center floor.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Pros: Customer Service was excellent. Product works better than described. I was building a network bridge between two houses and this creates the wireless access at the second house. I purchased one of these, one of their switches and two of their antennas, per their customer service recommendations. ...
Summary: This is a great solution for anyone who wants a ceiling mounted access point with support for PoE+, multiple SSIDs, Vlan mappings, and other features usually only found in more expensive business-oriented products.
Pros: - Great coverage, even in a large house over multiple floors. - Supports PoE+ for full gigabit speed and power over a single ethernet cable. - Supports multiple SSIDs and Vlans. - SSID to Vlan mapping, so I can keep my guest wifi traffic isolated. - Fast, comprehensive GUI. All the settings and i...
Summary: I have had to back burn the project that involve these WAP's and grab another model because they seem to shutdown the Radio over night. I have check on the power etc and they are all fine. Please go to the forums about this product before buying.
Summary: Overall I like this AP, well I like it now that its working and has been working for about a day. Initial setup was not an issue, the issue was when I tried to configure VLAN tagging for multiple SSIDs on here.
Pros: -Good range, covers the 2,200 sq ft of the house with no issues, makes it outside into the yard too. -Performance as far as speed is what I would expect. I can get about 80mbps when sitting 20 feet away, the AP is on the other side of a wall. -Web interface is easy to use (see cons though) -Looks...
Cons: -Web interface is slow compared to other similar products I've used -Setup process. I could not get VLAN tagging to work properly the first go around, more on this later.
Summary: Beware, don't make any assumptions when you configure this thing. I'm still shaking my head that they would have given it 192.168.1.1 as it's IP address out of the box when it's not a router.
Pros: Features, price
Cons: This thing requires 192.168.1.1 out of the box, which is what most people use as their router IP address and will immediately cause a conflict if you connect it to your network. Every other brand of AP I've used defaulted to a higher address. Now I have an IP address conflict with my router that ...
