I've been had!

Andy B., Newegg
10 August 2014
  • Summary: My reason for buying this in the first place was because it was reported to have superior sensitivity. NOT TRUE! It will find an access point with a signal level of just 1db, but like all the other access points, it won't lock on a signal level of less the 14db so its really no better.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Boy, did I get stuck!!! Like others have reported, the software is glitchy BUT the housing is a design flaw too. I bought this to replace a 2 year old E*Genius that went bad. I climbed a tower to replace the E*Genius to find the outdoor ethernet cable jacket was to long to plug in to this unit an...

Neat Package, I wish it worked.

Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: This unit is a well packaged outdoor unit but is not "enterprise" grade, nor does it claim to be. it seemed to work OK as an Access Point, but was VERY complicated to program. I bought it to use as a link on my WISP system, but it would not function as a CLIENT on the network as it was supposed to...

Unstable

Lisa N., Newegg
10 April 2014
  • Summary: The firmware is klunky. I ran this in AP-Client mode, and AP-Client Router mode. Both modes had issues. The device had trouble getting it's WAN IP from the dhcp server on the network. An issue no other devices on the net had.
  • Pros: Can run on 12V, so car/RV support is nice.
  • Cons: Unstable. Tested with several WiFi connections, and it could not stay connected.

Won't stay connected after 24 hours, terrible tech support.

  • Summary: I purchased this to give wireless coverage outside on the patio. I am using it as an AP, and not for the router function. So a pretty basic installation. But what I found is that after about a day any device (iPad, iphone, Laptop) will try to connect and then disconnect.

  • Summary: Have yet to get this thing to hookup to a wifi network. Dont know if its the machine or my settings. And if I knew the language of the tech support people we could problably figure it out. Its been a very frustrating thing to deal with so far.

Incompatable and Unreliable

James W., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: It claims to be an outdoor unit; but I question this. They are relying on gravity to keep water out. None of the seams in the plastic or the access door where you hook up the cables are sealed with any type of gasket; only slightly overlapping plastic (about 1mm overlap).
  • Pros: Its small, it has a decent feature set.
  • Cons: I have this in my test environment, and it has a lot of issues. First off I can not connect with anything except Windows 7 computers. (Windows XP, Mac, iPhone, Android Phones, etc... will see it but won't connect; even with WEP/WPA/WPA2 disabled.) I have worked with TP-Link's tech support; a nice...
