Excerpt: I bought this unit to get wireless access out in the yard when I'm cutting the grass or doing yard work. Don't want to pay data on the IPhone that I'm already paying for in the house. I mounted on a vent that's coming through the roof and ran a cat5 wire through a vent in the attic.
Nice features and cheap, but not good for outdoors

Summary: I'm a network administrator and the setup is pretty cumbersome to anyone without a high degree of skill. I liked the vlan tagging, it made it easy to have three (up to 4) ssid on separate vlans. The signal when it worked was fantastic but... This is the second one that failed in bad weather.
Summary: This access point is installed in my garage trusses, next to our upstairs bedrooms. I bought it to extend wireless service in to our upstairs without running wire through the house to get there.
Excerpt: This product truly delivers results. I have extended my signal over 600 ft through two buildings. I would recommend this product to anyone needing an inexpensive option for amplifying and broadcasting a wifi signal.
Summary: Best cheap prices. To the person complaining about PoE injectors.. just buy the ones that supports it.
Pros: I purchased over 50 of these for hotels WiFi. They works great! Excellent range. Works great if you need to WDS these as I had to on certain spots. It is way better if you wired them up instead though.
Cons: Only thing is the "save and reboot" takes a while but that's not a deal breaker at all.
Summary: I've deployed these at a few customer sites, including hotels, and they love it. Pros: -Per-user traffic shaping -Easy GUI -LONG range -Few reboots needed (if any) -Multiple SSID's -Price Cons: -Takes a while to upload the changes Overall: It's hard to beat for the price.
Very strange reaction to something like that but happened with a couple of programs

Summary: Had to go through 3 of these to find one that was stable enough for constant use. The first 2 units both would drop the wifi signal when I'd try to talk on a VOIP program on my laptop. Very strange reaction to something like that but happened with a couple of programs.
Summary: I bought this to install in my storage shed to extend my wireless to the rest of my property. It's fed via an underground cable. The range is nothing short of amazing. I can be in my living room, which is about 200 ft from the storage shed, and it shows approx 75% signal strength.
