Good solid Access Point

Amazon
1 May 2014
  • 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.

Was difficult to get up and running.

  • 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.

EnGenius never fails to pleases

Nick Fisher, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • 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.

1400' bridge, works perfectly!

Donald Coleman, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • 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.

Great Range...fyi if you are using apple...

G. Duggan, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • 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.

I bought the wrong one.

Sooner fan, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • 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.

Very good, long distance router!

Amazon
2 December 2013
  • 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.
