Summary: For the price there much better access points. With 2 vlans and 4 clients connect at 802.11n/g or 802.11g only, I get latency os 40-120ms TO the access point! I have the latest firmware. HP has already EOL'd these. Check HP forums for the disaster(s) with this access point.
Pros: Vlan support. Easy to understand interface. 40 MHz on 5Ghz.
Cons: Just doesn't work well - Dual band, only 1 band at a time - No 40MHz on 2.4ghz!!! - Bad latency on 2.4ghz - Slow web interface!
Summary: Real-world transfer speeds: Conditions: WiFi card = Intel 5300 (Thinkpad X200T) OS = Windows 7 Pro x64 Protocol = FTP Test file = 4.3 GB ISO Upstream switch: Procurve 1400-8G Test distance: ~10 feet, clear LOS Test environment: 300-unit high-rise in large city, with significant (>30 detectable APs)...
Pros: I didn't purchase this from NE, but wanted to share my experience after >6 months of ownership. I use this for my home office as a 5Ghz N AP to support 3-5 clients. I have an Aironet 1100 for Wireless-G, and wanted to stick with SMB-grade equipment for reliability. Contrary to what some have expe...
Cons: Not really a con since it's stated in the specs, but do be aware that this is a dual-radio device but can only support wireless G or N; simultaneous G+N is not possible.
Summary: I just want a wireless N router that really works. Can't anyone pull it off...? HP, I'm sooo disappointed.
Pros: Worked well... When it worked.
Cons: I had this router installed for just under a year when it starting showing symptoms of the disconnection problems on the HP Forums. I update the firmware and it made it worse!!! This product is end of life now from HP, and is going no where.
Summary: After reading a number of others complaining about the exact same issue on the Web I decided I would call HP Tech Support. Between the menu system and the technicians, I hung up the phone, packaged up the product, and called New Egg for a refund. Don't waist your time or money on this product.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: The AP goes deaf after a short period of time and de authenticates the connected wireless clients. It doesn't matter the distance you are from the device. I have a MacBook Pro two feet from the AP and I would be online and I would loose my connection. After resetting my PC's wireless NIC, everyth...
Great SMB-grade WAP with simple yet complete management
20 January 2012
Summary: This is just an initial review, having only set this AP up recently. Will update with more info in the future. I purchased this for my home office to add 11n 5 GHz to an existing 2.4 GHz 11g network.
Summary: I was having a hard time finding a wireless AP that would support viewing media files shared from my Windows Home Server. The consumer devices I had used would skip and lose connection all of the time. So I needed to upgrade to a more professional model.
Pros: Easy setup Streams video to three Media PC at one time All my devices play well with it.
Cons: I wish it was gray like all their other network equipment.
Summary: This AP can be found on a certain auction site for significantly less than it is listed here. If you, like me, are tired of buying trash from the big name consumer networking companies, give this HP access point a try.
Pros: I was looking for a standalone WAP to complement my new pfSense box at home. Consumer-grade networking equipment has left a sour taste in my mouth over the last few years. This AP is definitely a step up. I'll be the first to admit that it includes features that I will never use in a home environ...
Summary: 3d one I've installed. So far so good. Forces gateway to be in the scope of the subnet mask (Correct for most situations, but not technically required.) Some have complained that the range on these isn't much better that consumer-grade, but the power output is regulated by the FCC and no *legal*...
Pros: A/B/G/N and PoE Interface not dumbed-down like some consumer-grade AP's HP lifetime warranty
Cons: Not dual radio for N Can't select every conceivable combination of A/B/G/N
Summary: I run an IT company and I've been waiting years to encounter a product that came close to the advertised N standards. I decided to take a stab at the HP product because I've been really happy with their Procurve Switches.
Pros: Really streamlined unit. Feels good, looks good. 'Desk' and Wall mount. Web GUI is robust and gives good data use and client connection statistics and the ability to 'bridge' to and existing WIFI network for wireless expansion. 2.4g & 5g wifi and compatible with basically every wifi standard...
Cons: ...WIFI modes are enabled in groups (IE N 5g, N/G 2.4g, G/B, etc) so you may or may not be able to run the exact configuration you hope for. In my case, I was unable to run 5g N because all my devices we're not 5g (BUT they WERE N, just 2.4g, watch your specs folks). Overall throughput didn't inc...
