Summary: EnGenius wireless access points are great! They blend in easily and mount on the ceiling and can be powered by POE (Power Over Ethernet). When I called support the person I spoke to was knowledgeable and professional. EnGenius support warned me that they this model is soon to be at it's end of life and that there would be no further firmware updates for it. I was told that both the EAP300 , the EAP350 , and the EAP150 were better choices.
Summary: Install was more problematic than I expected. I made the mistake of reading the instructions, which are worthless. I ended up calling a friend and asking some advice. His advice was simple, "You know how to install this, just ignore the instructions and do it the way you know will work". I took his advice and once I forgot what the instructions said, installing it was simple.
Summary: Purchased 4 of these over the last few months to use at 2 different locations. 3 have worked without a hitch. The 4th was problematic, bringing the network down regularly. It took a while to determine it was the Engenius since the switch would go bananas and then reset after a few minutes, before I could fully troubleshoot. I tried resetting firmware and noticed the firmware in that unit was actually newer than the one on their site or the other two AP's.

Summary: After trying various wireless extenders, and tearing my hair out, I was turned on to Engenius. This product is awesome and extends to the side away from my wi fi and down the length of my mobile home. We live in a hole, so to speak, and I could hardly get my wireless in the very front of the house. Now, with the help of Ethernet and the Engenius, I am able to work from my room in the front of the house. I recommend this product.
Summary: When our printer's internal WiFi fried, there was talk about buying a whole new printer, instead, I suggested an external wifi connection, this one to be exact. It was a dream to set-up as a repeater on the existing router, made all the better without having to deal with WDS settings. Just set it into the right mode, and go.
Great for home and small business - 32 user limit?

Summary: I purchased two of these about 18 months ago for use in our business. I also had an ECB350 deployed in the warehouse.They worked great for most of that time. They never had to be rebooted and just seemed to work until we started to grow. Once we added more employees we started to have issues with people being able to connect. I believe this is related to the number of users connecting not total bandwidth.
Summary: I got this access point because I wanted a more or less permanent, whole house solution for wifi access, with RADIUS authentication for my own devices and an open network for guests. The Engenius brand is made by Senao which (I believe) makes some equipment for netgear and others. I like the smoke detector form factor. It installs pretty easily onto the ceiling. The holes are not lined up exactly with a ceiling box which I think it should have been.
Works well, very discrete, true PoE AP at a reasonable price.

Summary: I was skeptical about the product as I was not familiar with the brand and the documentation was ambiguous in a few areas. However, once I received the product and began setting it up, it operated as expected. Moreover, it supports Power over Ethernet (PoE / 802.3af) which makes it ideal as a remote access point (AP) at a location where you may not have convenient access to AC power. The range is comparable to my other 2.4GHz WiFi APs.
Summary: My computer room is at one end of the house, and with my previous wireless router, located there, the speed I was getting when connected from the other end of the house was barely acceptable. I purchased this access point because I wanted an access point that I could install centrally, up in the attic, fed by power over ethernet as I did not have a conveniently located outlet in the attic.
Summary: Great coverage, easy setup, advertised throughput... for a while. I purchased one of these in early September, and it worked great until about 2 weeks ago. At that time, it began to randomly throttle throughput to just 200kbps ~ 300kbps. The signal strength does not degrade, and the router to which it is connected shows a consistent 100MB full-duplex connection. A power-cycle of the AP clears the issue, but the problem soon returns.
