Good performance, well made.

John H., Newegg

  • Pros: We have five of these units in our facility and they perform flawlessly. Range is far better than previous high end units and remote management is simple.
  • Cons: Had one defective POE unit but EnGenius replaced it immediately without question.

dual radios to boot

Ronnie Gravina, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: 10,000 sq foot house. four to five bars throughout. Mounted it in a third story attic and maximized the output decibels on both radios. Nice product. Easy setup for myself, a novice. Highly recommend for a residential application.

Not impressed

Rob W., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm going to RMA it. For the money it costs, I expected significantly better range. I can get another Intellinet for ~$50 and save over $100, including the restocking fee for this unit.
  • Pros: Looks good, works, highly configurable
  • Cons: Range is no better than my cheapie Intellinet. Maybe a little worse.

awsome

Jeffrey H., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Pros: Great vlan mapping and buying with the poe injector was just as much as the ap by itself. Strong signal!
  • Cons: One ssid keeps dropping, but it looks due to competing networks. An issue i will iron out.

An excellent Access Point, but configuration could be easier

Dennis Eichenlaub "Life time learner", Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: We wanted strong Wi-Fi signals both in the basement and on the second floor. Normally, a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi router would be sufficient. Unfortunately for us, our 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi often doesn't work, even when there's a strong signal. I don't know why. Perhaps a neighbor bought a wireless baby monitor or mini-cam that is clobbering our signal. All I know for sure is that I tried two Wi-Fi routers. We can't rely on the 2.4 GHz band in our house, no matter what channel we use.

Tricky to set up, but awesome

Clayton King "Gemini's The Guy", Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I've set up countless wireless access points over the years. This one is a little different because even though you "save" on each page of the setup, you have to remember to go back to the first page and then click the apply button. That button only appears after you make changes to the setup. Documentation is limited and since you start out on that main page for setup without the apply button, that is the step that can easily be missed.

Great Product

N. Smith, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: Can easily be mistaken for a smoke detector and with the POE power options have a lot of flexibility in mounting which allows for optimum placement for coverage instead of needing to work with the convenience of having power close. The dual band seams to work flawless and the options to push 5ghz capable users to the 5ghz band to free up the 2.4 band is pretty useful. Each band is easily configured with up to 8 separate SSID and encryption settings.

Works Great!

Bryson B., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Easy setup, I like how you can queue up changes, and apply at the end... Seems stable, no reboots or weird issues yet. I'm using the VLAN tags with a Cisco ASA, works great.
  • Pros: Smaller, looks like a smoke detector, runs fairly cool, POE, VLAN Support, Multiple SSID.... Wall mount works well, comes with all hardware. Well thought out, i'd say.
  • Cons: Internal antennas limit range, compared to say, Asus RT-N66U. But it's still fairly strong.

Great Value for the $$ -

John K., Newegg
23 August 2013
  • Summary: As stated before, this AP may not be for the faint of heart unless you have good tech support. If you're going to use any of the advanced features, you almost need to have a very configurable managed switch (I used a Cisco 300 PoE 28 port switch)
  • Pros: I've set up two of these units to cover 4500 sq over 3 storyes and separate garage. I've only had one issue with dropping which I configured around (see cons)
  • Cons: One of the units was occasionally dropping packets (or so it seemed) making use of the AP painful. After some diagnosis, I found that the wiring to the unit was not quite up to par to support 1Gb *and* PoE. The solution to this was to administratively force the port speed to 100Mb. Unfortunately, this configuration option is NOT available on the EAP600, So I had to do it on the switch. Once I did this, I have had no dropped packets and the unit has run flawlessly.

  • Pros: Works incredibly well, and very glad that I purchased it with the PoE adapter. It made installation to my remote location a snap.
  • Cons: None so far.
