Netgear ProSafe WNDAP350 Dual BandWireless-N Access Point

  • Summary: I installed this wireless access point in a theater to provide coverage for both the auditorium and a section of lobby. The AP not only covers the entire theater but also covers much of the backstage space, the entire lobby, and into the parking lot. Using the built in VLAN feature, I set up this AP to provide both secure access to the theater's private LAN and also guest access to WiFi so that visitors could use the internet while in the building but not have access to...

A good AP with tons of features.

  • Summary: I got 16 of these APs for a conference and they performed admirably. We had around 1,000 users hitting them pretty hard. There were very few APs that had simultaneous 802.11n, particularly with gigabit and PoE: I had choices between this, a 3Com that isn't out yet, and a $800+ Cisco.

  • Pros: Gigabit port, external antenna jacks, dual simultaneous 802.11n, Linux shell you can login on, Power over Ethernet. Tons of software features: multiple ESSIDs per radio (different authentication can connect you to different VLANs), logging to syslog server, WDS backhaul, easy to use configuration.

I had serious issues with WPA disconnecting me after 5 to 15 minutes but WEP and no security both worked very well. There is no SNMP MIB available, I was able to figure out some wireless SNMP information but I ended up having to build an SSH+expect script to pull wireless stats. You can login, but most of the root file-system is a read-only squashfs, not JFFS2, so you can't put SSH keys or ...
