Summary: After firmware upgrading Cisco product 3 times in 1 day, threw out and installed Netgear. With assistance from Tech Support the 5 WAPs installed in 100k sq ft building with steel rims floor to ceiling, all works great for employees moving product around facility with hand held Wi Fi devices
Pros: Very good range, Dual Band, clean look with no external antenna, Very Reliable. Tech support is available and knowledgeable, very helpful. 3x3 MIMO.
Cons: No cons. Tech Support helped eliminate any negatives that could have popped up due to my lack of training on product.
Do not waste your time | I used to run a systems/networking company
16 September 2015
Summary: For context, I used to run a systems and networking company. I don't know everything certainly, but I've helped over a 100 businesses and probably over a thousand individuals with their systems and network setups.
Summary: It constantly drops the connection. I'm returning it back. I spent several hours trying to making work and I'm giving up now. Technical service is good over the phone, but the device does not work.
Summary: We have invested $3000 in 12 of these, what a huge blunder on my part. I should have learned from the WG302s we got that never worked well. Netgear just cannot put out a good WLAN product.
Pros: Concurrent 2.4/5ghz - if it worked, but it doesnt
Cons: Picks some clients and will not let them connect, or disconnects them constantly. Claims Malformed packets in packet capture but I don't see it, and the Ubiquity and Engenius Access points seem to think the packets are ok, they let those clients connect.
Summary: I have purchased 4 of these in the past year for use with my business at 4 different locations. Users find them reliable and fast. Couple notes: use latest firmware to ensure greatest compatibility & use CAT 6 ethernet to your PoE switch to ensure 1000 Mbps connectivity. (green).
