This is old hardware

Nigel Thompson, Amazon
20 October 2005
  • Summary: This product was easy to install and worked fine right out of the box. Out of interest I went to the LinkSys site to see if there are firmware upgrades for it. That's when I found it was a version 1.1 piece of hardware and LinkSys does not seem to have upgrades for this version. LinkSys shows firmware upgrades for versions 2.0 and 3.0 leading me to believe that Amazon sold me an old unit.

Decent product marred by bad documentation

GG "ge110888", Amazon

  • Summary: The unit performs well with my Mac iBook, even WPA security works as advertised and without connection drops. The range is reasonable, I'll be trying out a better antenna soon. Note: WPA security does not work when the unit is configured for wireless repeating. This is an issue with the WPA standard, it does not allow for that. The documentation is as good as worthless for setting these things up.

An honest and thorough look at the WAP54G

kerrycomacton "antowell", Amazon
5 July 2003
  • Summary: Short version - great unit, but the logging leaves much to be desired, and the latest firmware seems to have a few minor glitches. If you want to know the details, read on... Bought a WAP54G recently. Performance is decent. Range is good. Anyone who claims that they don't see a speed difference between a wired and wireless connection probably isn't looking close enough - a 100Mbps full-duplex ethernet has much faster throughput than a wireless connection.

  • Summary: I have used this product for approx 6 months. It only works if it is warm. I have to switch it on for 10 mins and then off and on again to get it working. Have emailed support.uk@linksys.com twice with no response.
  • Pros: Easy to set up and use
  • Cons: Reliability and support

Muito cuidado: só funciona com WRT54g ou com outro WAP54g! Com outras redes, esqueça.

DANZ_IBZ, MercadoLibre
24 May 2013
  • Summary: Não há muito o que escolher: se você já possui uma rede baseada em WRT54g ou precisa de um cliente AP para o seu já existente WAP54g, é tiro certo. Contudo, é um balde de água fria para quem compra achando que é um extensor de rede, bridge ou mesmo AP que vá funcionar em qualquer rede - mesmo da Linksys - que não seja WRT54g ou WAP54g.
  • Pros: configuração fácil, confiabilidade, bom sinal, tomando por bases redes "G"
  • Cons: Só funciona com outros aparelhos da linha (WRT54g e com o próprio WAP54g)... NÃO FUNCIONA COM NENHUM OUTRO APARELHO, MESMO QUE SEJA LINKSYS! V. manual.

Nicht schlecht aber...

geizhals.de
30 September 2003
  • Summary: Das Produkt ist an sich nicht schlecht. Vor allem die Leistungsdaten sind gut und der AP ist leicht zu konfigurieren. Aber leider hat Linksys noch Probleme mit der Firmware. In unregelmäßigen Abständen lässt sich der LAN Port nicht mehr ansprechen. So geschehen 3 mal in 2 Monaten. Das ist so als ob er deaktiviert wäre, kein Traffic geht mehr drüber und nur ein Hard Reset erweckt ihn wieder zum Leben.
