Pros: I'm giving this a 4/5 stars because for the price it's a good outdoor antenna. I use this on the outside of my house to give me wifi in my yard. It seems to work fine outside. The price is great.
Cons: Proprietary PoE design. This means you can't use a PoE switch and you have to use the included PoE injector. I don't know WHY they do this, it's really bothersome to me. This is why I wouldn't buy this product again and I'd spend a little bit extra on something else.
Pros: Very easy setup and installation. Interface is intuitive.
Cons: Signal strength poor. Probably a defective unit. I set it to the highest settings there are, installed the latest firmware. I can only go about 20-30 feet from the unit and the signal drops to 1 bar. Any father and you no longer get the signal at all. This is in a wide open area with no obstructions or interference.
Summary: I've also gotten complaints about the included mounting hardware. Most of the time we've had to use other equipment to securely install these - especially if we're going to wall mount them.
Pros: EnGenius makes good, reliable equipment and you can't really beat their prices. I buy dozens of access points every year for various applications and EnGenius is all I buy now. Configuration is fairly easy and these things have great power.
Cons: Two main problems: proprietary PoE and the included installation hardware. If the included injector dies you have to replace it with the same kind which you have to contact EnGenius to get - no buying any old injector off the shelf. Of course this also means you can't use a PoE switch. I've had several clients that were upset and confused that they couldn't use the PoE switch they already had to power these.
Pros: I set this AP up on the INSIDE wall of my garage. Tjis one, unlike the ENS200, is omnidirectional and you dont need to be in front of it to get signal. This replaces an old wireless G router out there that i used as an access point for a long time, which was barely getting me 1 bar by the pool. With this, i get 4-5 bars in my pool area and 3-5 bars around my 3800 sqft. house. Extremely pleased.
