Doesn't work well and needs daily resets.

Bridget Harras, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This did not work well at all. Thought the first one was a fluke so had it replaced only to find the same issues with this on. Setup was a pain. I set a manual IP during my setup and every time I changed anything (no matter how trivial), I lost communication with the device. After days of fighting I sent an e-mail to tech support who said I should always reset to factory defaults every time I make "any" change to the config.

An excellent AP, good signal strength

Ralph Bard, Amazon
13 March 2015
  • Summary: An excellent AP, good signal strength, reasonable configuration menus. No tools to recognize signal strength of nearby units so you're bridging blind. Bridging took down my network, unable to find a bridge solution with these units that didn't have that effect.

Drop connections

Jim /., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Bought 2, they would drop connections and when you try to reconnect it would just keep asking for the password. Had to reboot AP to get it to connect again. If it started out badly, there was no reason to think it would end good. Just returned them to save myself some aggravation.

Fantastic range!

Amazon fan from Maryland, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an old Linksys wireless router set up in bridge mode on the second floor of my house hard-wired to a Verizon FIOS Quantum router (Actiontec MI424WR Rev I) on the first floor. The HWABN2 provides a strong signal all the way to the basement (which the Verizon router does not). My whole house now has full access to Verizon 50/50Mbps service.

Works very well with DJI Phantom FC40

Dale Adkins, Amazon
8 August 2014
  • Summary: This works very well with my Phantom FC40. It has over doubled my range. I am flying in a very wooded area. so I would expect it to be at least a thousand feet in wide open cleared area. I am very happy with this product.

Best access point I have ever purchased.

Man Downeast "Me", Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: This was a no brainer to install. It has been awhile but if I remember right it was just about plug it in and that's it. It is the best access point I have ever purchased but I have to say I am not a purist at anything. I mean I don't try to find the best and most expensive. Just the best at a reasonable price. I nailed it with this device.
