The best AP yet

William D., Newegg
15 May 2014
  • Summary: Hands down the best access point I have used. Indoor or outdoor. This is a great performer.
  • Pros: Very good price. Their tech support is the best I have experienced. They were so easy to get to. I called them twice as I had purchased 2 of these units. With 2 different installations I wanted to get it right the first time. I am actually using this one indoors and I get a 5 bar signal throughout my home. Get this and don't worry about how techie you are. These guys will get you up and running.
  • Cons: This access point has so many options which can be confusing. Their tech support offsets this.

Amazing access point.

Robert J., Newegg

  • Pros: Easy to deploy, and just works. Offers great range(600FT+) at fast speeds(10-15MB/s!!).
  • Cons: Setup is a bit quirky, but afterwords it just works.

It's a beast

Shane M., Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: GUI is actually good, and the CLI is very easy to get around for those who actively manage their network.
  • Pros: Grabbed this with some skepticism but am very pleasantly surprised. I needed something better to cut through a lot of 'dead' areas and interference. The long range isn't a joke either; keeping line-of-site with the house outside, I can get about 2000ft with decent signal. Inside the house the signal is clear and strong every spot I've checked so far. The POE capability is very handy and makes installation much less obtrusive to the home environment.
  • Cons: Wish it had a true 10/100/1000 uplink for the price; my network can easily fill the 10/100. More experienced users won't have any trouble, but some people will be annoyed by the lack of a manual of any kind in the box. Note it can be downloaded online easily just by web search.

Fantastic repeater

Charles R., Newegg
8 April 2014
  • Pros: finally...a product that performs as advertised. Unlike the Amped Wireless "high power" repeater I'm trying to get rid of, the ENS202EXT is performing well. I have it elevated about 10 feet and was able to surf, download files, and browse my network at 210 yards. I walked an entire 12 acre farm, up hills and down into gullies and never lost my connection, nor the youtube video I was playing. Hopefully this will perform was well on a construction site with lots of comp...
  • Cons: must download setup and manual docs online.

Very Good AP/Router

Elliot H., Newegg
18 March 2014
  • Summary: It takes a while to reboot the AP/Router.
  • Pros: The Router/AP/Bridge has a nice high quality case. It also has a relatively easy to use web interface for management. it also came with pole mounting equipment and built in mounts for putting it on a wall.
  • Cons: There is no built in help in the web interface. You have to download it from the OEM's web site.

Difficult setup, runs solid.

Daniel L., Newegg
27 February 2014
  • Summary: We've had it for 3-5 months and haven't had to restart the unit once.
  • Pros: Haven't had to reset it since I got it setup. Gets really good range. It has a connection to connect another device hardline if you need to. Uses POE so you can mount it a fair distance away from a power plug if needed.
  • Cons: The web-interface to set it up is little... unconventional. You make ALL of your changes, and THEN you click save in the upper left. The changes are not saved at each screen, but are instead held temporarily until you reboot the machine (and loose the settings), or click save in the upper left of window.

  • Cons: Can't find any cons to date.

No problems so far

David, TigerDirect.com
22 September 2013
  • Summary: Mounted to the wall in our church basement hall as a wireless access point. Worked right off the bat and still working a month later. So far, so good. Setup instructions are minimal. Some experience is helpful and Google is your friend. Remember when configuring to hit the save reload button on the config screen after making configuration changes or you will lose them. I learned this the hard way. Changes are accumulated but not applied until this is done.

Long Range

MOSES T., Newegg
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I use this as an access point, I connect my tablet & laptop to it. Configuration took me a little while, I thought I was accepting & saving my config, but everything would revert back to there defaults. Then I saw that you have to accept or save on the window you were at, then you had to go all the way to the top left, were there was a new menu that would show up when ever you made changes, this menu would let you click on anther save button, the unit would reboot, &...
  • Pros: Wow, this is great, us to use my MiFi when I was in the park with my kids. But now I just connect to my 50Mbps ISP. I live in an apartment building, I wanted to connect to my wifi when I was in the park with the kids. My window faces the park, so I decided to research long range wifi antennas, & I found this one. I received the antenna, configured it, mounted it to my window that faces the park, & I took the kids to play, Wow, I got an excellent connection, & I was al...
  • Cons: N/A, Engenius makes great products. I am a huge believer in the apple TC router & airport express network devices, but Engenius makes excellent long range access points.

EnGenius Technologies ENS202EXT

Joshua H., Newegg
22 July 2013
  • Pros: Great coverage area. I had two access points to cover my 3,000 SF house but still had a weak signal out by my pool. I mounted this on the back wall of my house and was able to do away with my other two APs - this gives me a good signal throughout the yard and house, even through an exterior brick wall.
  • Cons: Intruction manual would be pretty useless to the non-technical but if you've set up a few routers you'd be fine.
