3 out of 5 eggsdoes the job, though less than what is advertised

Pros: Boosted the signal to everywhere in my house, even in the opposite corner of the basement (repeater is on 2nd floor above-ground). Fast internet for gaming.

Cons: Although the Access Point/Repeater did boost my range astronomically, it did not carry the same internet power that my actual router did. Had a very noticeable bottleneck when it came to downloads.

Other Thoughts: Although it is advertised as a repeater as well as an access point, the product did not act as a repeater. I have a Comcast Wireless Gateway and, through Tech Support at EnGenius, came to learn that this product is NOT COMPATIBLE as a repeater for my Gateway. This came as a shock and I was very disappointed, though it still worked as an access point.

I gave this 3 eggs because although it supercharged my internet radius, the power of it was much less and it DID NOT work as it was advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for purchasing the EAP9550.

As a rule, the farther the range from an access point, the lower the throughput rate. Some things you may try to do to improve throughput, make sure the EAP9550 and your wireless gateway are on different non-overlapping channels such as 1, 6, or 11 to minimize interference. The placement of the AP, where there are least obstructions in relation to the client device is also a big factor. If using encryption, use WPA2 with AES only (WEP or WPA with TKIP are considered legacy forms of encryption) in order to connect at higher speed modulation rates.

Regarding the repeater function, EAP9550 is designed to be used as a WDS repeater with another EAP9550. Using WDS is a not an IEEE802.11 standard type of connection. If you require a universal repeater that will work as a repeater with your Comcast wireless gateway, we recommend using the ERB9250 or ERB300H.

Sincerely,

EnGenius Customer Support Team

5 out of 5 eggsGreat unit for the price

Pros: Well made, sturdy, easy to install, easy to configure. The signal strength is higher than I thought it would be. Seems to be a good value for the price. Under $100. Looks great on a drop ceiling. No ugly antenna. RANGE, baby.

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Set up 3 in a "roaming" environment using POE in a government office setup. They look very professional and work well. I have had no complaints and have not had to do any followup work. I'm thinking about getting one for home. Seriously, they are strong and reliable and blend in with all the other stuff that is on ceilings.

Did not break the bank. I wanted the lowest price unit that looked the best and had the potential to perform at commercial grade reliability, meaning no rebooting. This seems to be that unit.

1 out of 5 eggsVery unsatisfied

Pros: Easy to install/configure

Cons: Unreliable. Very limited capacity.

Other Thoughts: I manage a small network for a private school in Dallas. Our setup is very unsophisticated, and we've been using WAP54Gs for wireless access. We got a grant for a bunch of iPads, so we decided to upgrade two of the WAPs, and this product looked like a good, economical alternative.

I've had trouble with both of the EAP9550s. Both of them seem to stop working after being in operation for a period of time. I just power-cycle them because that's easiest.

This weekend was the worst experience I've had. We got 12 new laptops and I was running MS Update on them. After getting four laptops signed onto the WAP and downloading updates, the WAP stopped responding to new connection requests. Rebooting didn't help. I resolved the problem by getting one of the old WAP54Gs out of the closet. It handled 12 laptops simultaneously with no trouble.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsNot quite as advertised

Pros: Appearance and ease of set up was awesome

Cons: Power is not as powerful as one would think after reading the description and wattage. I thought with the power that this transmitter put out it would go over a block away before the signal was lost. So I quickly 'rough' installed it in my basement near the floor joists and took a stroll around the house with my iPhone checking for signal strength. I went outside and walked in front of my garage which is about 50' away line-of-sight and lost signal. After checking the perimeter of my house the signal was gone or nearly gone anywhere outside. I was disappointed, but thought it was because it was in the basement. I recently moved it into my garage. Now I don't have a huge house. It's a ranch of about 1800 sq ft so not huge right? The signal is nearly lost in the other end of the house and completely gone in the finished basement bedroom directly below that area. It looks like when this thing dies or I get other priorities taken care of this device will no longer serve a purpose and will get an allegedly better wireless transmitter. Not worth the money for the wattage you are expecting.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's OK.

Pros: It has a sleek-looking form factor and is easy to get up and running. I have it connected via powerline adapter to my primary router in the other corner of the house, and it definitely extends my range nicely.

Cons: The problem is the older, cheaper WRT54GL I had upstairs had better signal on the other side of the downstairs, and devices kept trading back and forth. Also, I bought this to replace a Zyxel device and expected significantly better but only got incrementally better.

Other Thoughts: I still have this connected as a separate SSID but now use it sparingly, as I've replaced the WRT54GL with an AWESOME ASUS RT-AC66U. I don't really see a lot of value in this device, as similar devices are maybe 80-90% as good for half the price.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Perfect for what I need at my home. Currently have two in service (will be adding a third) in a Wifi roaming arraignment. I am using 2 of the 4 SSIDs (one for private access, one for public access), separated using VLANS. The setup of the access point was easy and self explanatory. Also, I am using PoE. That works like a charm. As others have said, the LEDs can be turned off, which is a good thing because they are quite bright.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: If you need a simple, attractive AP, this is the ticket. The PoE and VLANs are a huge plus.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product. Wrong Application

Pros: Easy to use, many advance features, great range

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Customer said they had a managed switch that supported VLANs....they didn't, so the multiple SSIDs with VLAN tagging wasn't implemented.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value, Excellent Operation

Pros: Small, Round, Great Signal Penetration. Comes with or you can download the locator software to find and configure your AP's. About to purchase a third for in office use.
POE compliant without unnecessary injector. (See Other Thoughts)

Cons: None have surfaced so far.

Other Thoughts: I have placed 2 of these in a production fabrication area to give wireless to the shop floor. So far, they have been flawless.
About the "missing" POE injector, you have to understand that these are POE compliant and I, like many others, use POE switches which power the units (and cameras and phones and other stuff). I'm glad they didn't come with them because I alredy have a box full of injectors not being used. This would have raised the price and been unnecessary if you're doing a "Professional" installation. Get yourself a quality switch with POE and lessen the opportunity for failure by having injectors all over the place and more cable connections, or buy the injector if you have a one-off installation.

2 out of 5 eggsSlow!!

Pros: Small, Blends in well looks like a smoke detector has Blue LEDS and can be powered via POE

Cons: Slow!!! The ap configures fine, but sometimes it just looses packets, the resulting pc does not respond at all! its not our channel spectrum either!

Other Thoughts: Would not repurchase

3 out of 5 eggsIt's ok

Pros: Has outstanding coverage up to 120 feet away from the device. It has acceptable coverage out to1/4 mile and it acts like a great device for home use.

Cons: This one was recommended to me to install in a convention center and they failed with the first function that went into that convention center. It turns out they have a maximum of 25 devices logging in simultaneously, I had over 1,000 people trying to use it.

Other Thoughts: No need to spend money on this if you're a tech looking to hook up a lot of people in a small place. It missed getting five eggs by not being able to support more than 25 wireless devices.
