Good Wifi AP

A. Sadler, Amazon
31 July 2008
  • Summary: This is a good basic WiFi access point. I've bought many. Easy to set up and use. It occasionally disconnects, but a firmware upgrade usually fixes it easily. I have many in service.

Good product, tricky setup

Amazon
20 July 2008
  • Summary: Very nice product. Getting upwards of full 54Mbps within 20-25 feet, 24Mbps within 50 feet. The trick to confguring this thing not to disconnect every 3 minutes is this: after enabling WEP security, DISABLE 802.1x authentication in Windows. You'll fly trouble free after that.

Interface is a bit flaky but so far so good...

L. Hodgson, Amazon
17 July 2008
  • Summary: I just got this for my work, and have set up using the web-browser based setup interface. It's a bit flaky user interface, but gets the job done and is straight forward. Also, it seems to have lower sync rate than SMC 802.11b Barricade wireless access point I have used before with my Netgear MA401...

Good range and OK speed - one caveat

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I recently spent 4 hours troubleshooting a new installation of this WAP which I purchased to increase signal strength and range. (It was a WAP54G).

Works great

Amazon
8 July 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this WAP since I already had a Linksys 4-port router. This WAP is the perfect complement to the router, and it works well. I followed the quickstart guide and the setup went as described, including configuring WEP from the start.

Wooks Good - Bad Instructions

Amazon
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I feel the state of consumer level wireless is one step above gadget level - after a lot of screwing around, it works but I would still prefer to be able to run cable and have a wired connection.

After a few days of headache configuring it, the thing works like a charm

B. Ray, Amazon
19 June 2008
  • Summary: Setting up the Linksys was a threefold pain, but after wrestling with the configuration I'm consistently getting 54Mb throughout my house. I flip the thing on and forget about it. The three obstacles in setting up the WAP54G were: 1) The auto-setup program on the included CD continually blew up.

Used as an Access Client (wireless bridge) need Two of these.

G. Powell, Amazon
15 June 2008
  • Summary: I wanted to connect a wired computer to my wireless network, so I bought one of these, and a WRT54G router (which I needed anyway) which claims to act like a Access Point (it does but..), spent several hours attempting to configure it.

A Wireless Repeater That Works. Documentation the Doesn't

edelbeb, Amazon
12 June 2008
  • Summary: In response to Mr. Frandzel's later posted comments, I'll add that the SSID for the WAP54g should differ from that of the router. Otherwise, in some circumstances, one or more wireless adapters can switch from the WAP54g's signal over to the router's signal, and then perhaps eventually visa versa.
