Summary: This is a solid AP. I have it in my garage to throw a signal down in to my metal storm shelter and outside in the yard. This is a set it and leave it AP that just runs. Before this I had a different one from Amazon and I had a lot of issues with it. I would buy this again.
Summary: However once operational it worked well as a range extender. But was unable to get it up and running as a WAP or a bridge. Support was not all that great either. Should consider Linksys or Cisco....a little more pricier but easier to get up and running.
Summary: As an IT professional for a medium sized non-profit, I have used EnGenius outdoor APs/CBs for years to wirelessly backhaul our voice/data network to remote buildings on our 66-acre campus. I am using this product to distribute a point to multipoint connection between three buildings. Even in rain and with trees blocking direct line-of-sight, this unit maintains a fast/solid connection.
Summary: We have our internet modem in the main building about 1400' from the building that uses the internet. We have used several generations of equipment and about 6 months ago purchased two of these antennas. They were a bit of a challenge to initially set up (non-tech guy here) but once we got them chatting they have been rock solid. We have a 30 Mbps service and consistently have 16-25Mbps on the user side. Able to stream video and use the web without glitches.
Summary: This thing blankets my back and reaches my front yard in strong wifi service. For the $$ I would highly reccomend. One thing for apple users (airport express) you have to go into the airport utility and make sure you turn on the 5GHZ option under other settings. I have this connected to a music only network in my house not my main one and we could not get it to work until I turned this on in the utility.
Summary: I hate to rate it poorly because I bought the wrong one. I should have bought a 2.4ghz not the 5ghz. I have a 5ghz router but my adapters are only N. I sure this one would work great for what it was made for.
Summary: Now THIS router puts out a strong signal. Finally. I found a router that actually can reach from one end of my house to the other. A bit tricky to set up, but well worth the money. Seems Amazon has a lot of returns on these, probably due to the setup issues, so you can probably find one for $50 or so if you look carefully.
