Great Range and strong signal

Sheri H., Newegg
8 July 2014
  • 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. No 5Ghz. With 2.4 Ghz so l...

Running 4 of these with just one problem

Thomas J. Davey, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • 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...

Great device for the price

Todd Vandussen, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • 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.

Great Product!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: The only con I see is that you can not setup guess accounts with this product. The Pro is that setup is quick and painless unlike some of the more expensive APs

Great Product !!!

WLV43, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Does exactly what it was advertised to do and in that it looks like a Smoke Detector, no one in our Church knows that it's an Access Point/Repeater.

Works without hickups.

BLR, Amazon
21 July 2013
  • 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.

Powerful access point

W. Joel Porter "handyman carpenter", Amazon
17 June 2013
  • 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.

Wireless signal repeater

Paul Weller, Amazon
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Works better than some repeaters I've tried. I know it is designed to look like a smoke detector, but with the electrical wire and transformer plug that pretty much cancels out that effect.

No POE Injector

Theodore F., Newegg
18 August 2011
  • Pros: May be POE Compliant, but unlike most other Engenius radios that support POE ......................
  • Cons: This radio does NOT come with a POE injector. So although you can mount this on a wall or the ceiling with no wires visible, you have to bring an electical outlet within 4 feet of it so you can plug in the power adapter. So Stupid!
