Works well

Robert J., Newegg

  • Summary: I use this in concert with an RP-SMA 2.4GHz 25 DBi Yagi Wireless WLAN WiFi Antenna For Modem PCI Card Router also available from NewEGG.
  • Pros: This works really well. Once configured, it allows seamless networking between my laptop and the rest of the network.
  • Cons: A little hard to configure. It took a great deal of research to figure out how a WDS system and a client bridge works. Once I apprehended the fundamentals of these systems, configuration was a snap. I needed to understand these systems and how to configure them before I could take full advantage of this device.

So-so

  • Pros: Must be used with EAG-2408 antenna to get maximum range benefit. At 1200 feet, signal was very weak until antenna was added. Requires some programming expertise to setup. Device works as a modem and is used with a router in an acess point configuration.
  • Cons: It definitely has some quirks, and it does have to be rebooted from time to time. If you are looking for a device that you will almost forget about being part of your network though, this is not it. Maybe a firmware update in the future will take care of these things.

Good for the money, difficult to configure

Robert N., Newegg
24 December 2013
  • Summary: If you are looking to broadcast a signal from one building to another, I could recommend setting up another router at the other end to catch the signal and rebroadcast. It was able to carry a signal in the open for about 100 feet distance. After I got a few ‘walls’ inside the house, the signal was all but lost.
  • Pros: The device is able to be mounted on a pole, pvc pipe, or anything really. Its design on the back is flat, and has rounded groves if you are mounting to a round surface. It appears like it can mount up to about 2 inch poles, I have not tried to mount for exact though.
  • Cons: The devices was extremely difficult to connect to out of the box. I had to switch over to my laptop and disable the wireless, connect manually. This also required manually configuring the IP address on the LAN.

Power Underwhelming, Not for me but may be ok for others

Andrew G., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm not sure if this AP just isn't for my situation. I live in a fairly urban environment and I had a dead corner with my current router where I would have signal but the connection was sporadic, so I ran some ethernet and set this up with a High-Gain Omni Directional RP-SMA antenna (14") pointed directly at my dead spot.
  • Pros: - Once you get to the GUI it is fairly easy to get everything set up.
  • Cons: - Proprietary POE injector

Novices Beware

Peter P., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: The EnGenius ENH200 EXT provided the ability to hook up to the main Wi-Fi on my friends ranch from a pump house which was a little over a mile from the farmhouse. Since it was all private property with a good 2 mile buffer from the nearest property I was able to utilize the power setting feature of the product to max out the power to the transmitter which gave a solid signal to the remote PC.
  • Pros: Has an ability to provide more then the legally allotted power by region to the transmitter. Has excellent configuration options, DHCP server
  • Cons: No online help(-1) for more esoteric router options.

Not impressed

Alex H., Newegg
21 September 2013
  • Summary: If you are not looking for range and only an external antenna, this is a good product..
  • Pros: Easy install, nice GUI, lots of options. All components are sturdy and well built.
  • Cons: Mounted this on 4 foot pole above my roof. Works well, but provides no distance. I have a DLINK DIR655 that I have owned for 4 years sitting in my house which provides better distance. There is practically no usable signal at 200 feet.

Only good for a year

Darla L., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Summary: Not many options for outdoor wireless solutions. If I had another choice I would go with it. I'm tired of buying replacement Engenius products every year.
  • Pros: Initially works great
  • Cons: Setup is difficult unless you're a tech wizard. Expect to wait on hold at least 1/2 hour for tech support. Super sensitive to power spikes. I've lost 3 units from lightning surges.

Does not play well all the time

  • Summary: Have to power cycle it once a week because it stops passing DHCP across the bridge. Sometimes will just freeze. Firmware is latest version. Can't say I am thrilled with this. Should have got the Ubiquiti unit instead.
