Excerpt: Incredibly easy to set up and gets the job done. I have tried it out in a couple different modes: bridge and repeater. Both modes worked as intended. In repeater mode, my internet speed test was about 25% of typical speed. Next, I am going to re-set up as a client, wouldn't expect any problems.
Summary: I have been using this for about 3 weeks now, overall it has been a great unit. The setup was a little bit of a pain, follow the instructions provided and it will all be well. The signal is good and connection speeds are awesome. In many cases it runs faster then the devices that I have connected to the network via network cables.
Pros: This Access Point is great for the money. The setup is quick and relatively painless. The PoE is a welcomed addition. The range is great. No real complaints on the functionality of the AP whatsoever.
Cons: Support is HORRIBLE. We have purchased 5 of these to distribute wireless across two buildings. One of them started going down every other couple of days. It worked after a power reset, but then would go back down a couple days later. Called their support line. First, a message told me that they simply weren't able to take my call and then hung up. What?!? I called back. The message about being unable to take my call started, but then the phone began ringing. The perso...
Pros: Throughout or manufacturing facility to run various wireless devices like touchscreen computers and Wireless IP Cameras. I have honestly not have a problem with a single one or had to reboot since installing them several months ago. I have them all set on different channel with the same SSID and I can stream a video as I walk through the office and throughout the entire facility and never buffer the video.
Cons: I wish the POE was built into the LAN port and did not require a separate adapter but I knew this when I bought them.
Summary: I'm happy. Used this as a 'universal repeater' to link my wired devices on a switch to the wireless router. WAN -> Modem -> Cisco Linksys Wireless Router -> TP-Link -> Wired switch -> six devices.
Pros: Works wonderfully. Aesthetically pleasing. Does a great job. Technical support is 24/7 and doesn't seem to have a hold queue.
Cons: Technical support is horrible. Runs hot (on full antenna strength (the default)). Clunky UI. Doesn't support strong encryption standards. Wireless network SSID (for repeater) MUST match.
Summary: You will most likely be pleased with these units. For the price, you can't beat the value.
Pros: Bought this to replace failed Trendnet APs. We have an extremely dense building with concrete bricks separating each classroom. The signal strength on these units are decent. They seem to get the range any other AP would in the same situation. You could probably find a more powerful AP, but not at nearly this price range. I now have three of these in place throughout our buildings. One of them uses the PoE feature. Haven't had to reset any of them since I placed them ...
Excerpt: I am using this product as a Wireless AP. The instructions that came with the product was sufficient for me to configure this with WPA/WPA2 security. This has been in use for about 2 weeks now and has been working perfectly. I have about 8 wireless devices connected to the AP and they all work at the maximum bandwidth that each device is capable of. The unit gets a little hot to the touch though.
