Summary: I have had EnGenius ECB150 unit sitting on my shelf since the end of November and just now getting the time to install it; so I'm likely out of luck. This is a horrible unit. Read the 1-star reviews. Either DOAs or many early-on failures.
Summary: I have a 12 year old Linksys WET54 that has worked flawlessly all these years. When I fire it up and perform a site survey, I literally see 20 or so SSIDs from the surrounding area. Not the EnGenius ECB150. It will only detect the absolute strongest of signals.
Summary: For everything that it is, I love it. It's all I needed and it has performed exceptionally well. No reboots in about a month of ownership. I think this should be around the $40 - $50 price range.
Pros: RANGE, RANGE, and RANGE! This thing actually does everything it claims to do. Unfortunately this is getting to be rare these days. It's so incredibly easy to setup and go. I needed something to extend my range, and this did it. If this thing lasts a couple years, it may become my most favorite ne...
Cons: Would be nice to have a couple features like rebooting itself if it detects an absent client.
Pros: Once again, great price/performance point. Using on the end of hallways to provide AP/wireless coverage in hotel. POE WORKS! Basic setup takes 3 to 5 mins! per AP unit GUI is straight forward and common sense ez. 100% up time for all units deployed to date.
Cons: None so far<<< maybe could have spent the extra money and went with the 300Mbps for the end units as well.
Pros: I have been trying different range extenders to get coverage on my patio through the alum siding. Everything else sucked. This works great, plenty of signal all over the house and now outdoors also.
Summary: Should have bought this device years ago. Am ordering an additional one for the shop.
Pros: Purchased to use as an access point to supplement the weak signal from my 9850v2. Does such a good job in my 2 story home I have disabled the router wifi all together. Highly recommend this device to all user dealing with low signal strength.
Cons: Preset IP/gateway requires setting a PC to a static IP for initial setup. Not a big deal, but I can see why less tech savy users would find setting up the device difficult.
Summary: Apology to Newegg. Even though their RMA indicated a restocking charge, they refunded full amount for unopened units. Open unit had a charge. Cannot ask for more than that. They can't sell opened product for new, so restocking charge is more than fair.
