Summary: This is great if you need removable antennas, but it is great with its other features as well. Its is an older model and may not have all the latest security features, but does have great customer support.
Summary: I LOVE IT. I HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT AT ALL. HAVE 2-3 PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET AT THE SAME TIME AND IT WORKS GREAT. IT IS FAST, EASY TO HOOK UP AND WORKS GREAT. I WOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT IT.
Capable Cisco/Linksys product aimed at Small Business
9 July 2012
Summary: We have installed two(2) of these devices and had great success both times. The installation is automatic with a typical home/small business DSL or cable connection. And the instructions to access it via a connected PC and browser are straight-forward, and allowed us to implement additional settings (e.g. particularly security). As we write this review this unit is being sold on eBay for around $125 just below our cost via normal channels of distribution.
Summary: In the four or five years I have run these, I have had one failure. I replaced the unit and we went right back to work. This is a great setup for me. One High speed Internet connection to four different locations. Saved me the cost of three additional DSL connections.
Pros: Hey these are great for building to building wireless transmission. I have four of these units. One of them (at the router-Internet connection) I set to standard AP mode and connected it to a 14 dbi omni antennia(with a 1 amp amplifier). The other three I set to AP client mode with directional dish anntenias (no amp) and put them on other buildings up to 1/2 mile away (probably would go farther, haven't tried). Wala! Internet connection sharing building to building. W...
Cons: A little tricky to set up AP client, but once done and it locks on, you are good to go.
Summary: DDWRT can be installed on it but as DDWRT was never designed to be ran on a WAP it may not be a good idea to install it to it. So I decided to keep it with the stock firmware... which has been working fine anyways.
Pros: Its a WAP not a Router. Some people need to look at what it is and not just assume. Its great for what it is allows coworkers to gain access to the WAN and LAN wirelessly.
Summary: You might have to use a TFTP method to get the DD-WRT micro firmware on the device, but after that it's cake. This item is a perfect complement to a SOHO network that is already supported by a DD-WRT router.
Pros: Add DD-WRT and it becomes truly useful. If you aren't familiar with the features that DD-WRT can provide, Google them and do some reading. You'll thank yourself later.
