Summary: When my IT guy tells me "wow, this is impressive" you have to know it is a great product. One of these units centrally located in my business is covering an entire 10,000 SF facility, through a fire rated wall as well into the back of the warehouse. Setup was incredibly straight forward and easy, awesome signal strength.
Summary: Setup was tricky because the router's default settings assumes that one's network is running 192.168.1.x. Once I created a network with that morrored those settings, it worked fine. Then I switched the default to "scan network," and the device picked up my netowrk and worked great afterwards. All good.
Summary: We have 6 of these as access points in our school. They are wonderful. I might need to reboot them maybe 1 time a year, if even that. They have a great signal range, plenty of security options, and have been the least of my IT worries in our organization. A great buy!
Summary: It seems anytime I try and change or upgrade my home network, the process is confusing, but eventually I figure it out. The Cisco router I ordered, worked great right out of the box. I purchased the WAP router because I had expanded my wi-fi network by adding a second router, that was a few years old. While the router worked OK, I could not find a way to access my music, photos, videos from my home PC thru the second router.
Summary: I purchased this access point for a customer who had a 7 year old 3Com that was dying. I wasn't sure if it could handle the same amount of traffic as the 3Com. I also wasn't sure if it could give the same coverage. The answer in both cases was yes and it was easy to setup to boot. This customer will need one or two more and it is at the top of the list.
Summary: Almost everything works as advertised, just not if you want to use it as a wireless repeater. I checked the linksys site and web searched and found no solution to the issue. In the end I ran a POE connection to it and was able to use it as a second access point but never figured out repeater mode. Even upgraded the firmware. In the end: POE is seamless, range is average, SW is okay, setup is okay, but repeater.modes is horrible.
Summary: I bought this product to provide secure wireless services to our company network. I was pleasantly surprised that it has support for multiple SSIDs with tagged VLAN support (useful for creating a "guest" network for visitors, as well as a separate secure internal network). It supports WPA2-Enterprise, which I'm using together with Windows Server 2003 IAS to allow domain users to be authenticated to the network using their windows login automatically.
Summary: I had a home office and a Linksys WRT54g router. I wanted to secure my network more and have more LAN ports, but still have wifi. So I bought this AP, a Linksys VPN firewall Router, and an 8-port switch. Had the AP, the switch, my printer, and NAS plugged into the VPN Router, and my computers to the Switch. Worked flawlessy. This baby has serious range.
