Summary: While I retained a connection which is the point of this the speed never hit 300 Mbps. I used inSSIDer to monitor my connection and the NICs always register around 150 throughput or less. This is due mostly to various networks.
Pros: The appearance and physical mounting is good. I was able to easily get it installed using PoE to power. This feels very much like a business class device. For a 2.4 Ghz system it pushes a pretty deep signal. I set this up in a very cluttered 2.4 Ghz environment and it was able to stretch 25 ft re...
Cons: The configuration menus didn’t feel as intuitive as I’d like. Configuring WDS was trickier than I expected and I ended up just using it as a straight AP. Not all of the menu items are informed in detail in the GUI. It took some playing with options to get what I wanted.
Summary: I'll preface my review by stating that I sold this to some customers, and after a few years got it back after cleaning out a house after their divorce. My experience with it is firsthand for setting it up and updating firmware, but not for every day use.
Summary: Relatively easy to set up. But you need to mount on ceiling for optimal range. Therefore, you need a plug on the ceiling, or you will have an ugly extention cord powering unit. Purchased to extend signal in an Elks Lodge unit an unobtrusive location. Unit has not dropped signal since purchase.
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...
Summary: I needed to add another wireless access point to my home system. My cable modem and wireless router were located on the opposite side of the house from my kids' bedrooms and the reception there was almost non-existant.
