The EnGenius ECB350 is an ideal solution for expanding an existing network and increasing bandwidth to support additional users. This 2.4GHz Wireless-N Indoor Access Point/Client Bridge that features up to 29 dBm RF Tx (transmit) power for 2x greater Wi-Fi coverage than name brands, wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and a Gigabit Ethernet port for connecting to a switch or router. For deployments near ceilings or in crawlspaces where power outlets may be scarce, the ECB350 is also PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) capable when used with a PoE injector, like the IEEE 802.3af compliant EnGenius EPE5818Gaf.

This powerful and versatile, multi-functional 802.11n wireless device features eight different operation modes (Access Point/Client Bridge/Universal Repeater/WDS Bridge/WDS AP/WDS Station/AP Router/Client Router) to meet the changing needs of evolving business environments. The ECB350 delivers up to 6x faster speeds and 7x extended coverage than normal-power, legacy 802.11g access points. For small-to-medium-sized business networks and for larger homes, the ECB350 is an ideal solution for providing superior throughput, performance and unparalleled wireless range.

The ECB350 also features industry standard wireless network encryption settings, like WEP, and WPA/WPA2, to protect the network from unauthorized access. It also supports IEEE 802.1x Supplicant function in Client Bridge mode for authenticating users to a RADIUS server. For small-to-medium-sized office or larger corporate deployments the ECB350 also can be configured with MAC address filtering so only known and MAC address-recognized client devices can access the network and unauthorized client devices can be isolated.

The ECB350 includes EnGenius Zone Controller Access Point Management software that provides a robust suite of tools for IT managers, installers and network administrators who deploy, manage and maintain wireless networks. With Zone Controller, EnGenius Wireless Indoor Access Points and Client Bridges can be configured, controlled and monitored from one central location.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted Two Years

Pros: While it worked reception was very good.

Cons: After two years it stopped connecting at 300Mbps - even at 20' distance and clear LOS. Connection would bounce between 54-150Mbps, mostly at the lower end.

Other Thoughts: Wish it would have last longer.

5 out of 5 eggs2 Years And Counting.

Pros: Running faultlessly 24/7 since 2012. If you know how to handle wireless I recommend it.

Cons: Set up screens are cryptic. Don't buy it unless you know what you are doing. Not for the occasional user.

Other Thoughts: Went through about 4 Wireless AP, each lasting a few months at most, before giving this one a try. About to buy another.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Speed and Connection

Pros: Lots of features for security and networking.
High power, exchangable, external antennas (can be replaced with amplified higher power antennas but why bother really.
Mindblowing range in not just distance, but also through several walls

Cons: It's not exactly consumer friendly, in terms of setup. There's so many features, it's hard to get started. And in the middle of everything, the router stopped connecting to my pc. I was left connecting through my tablet and finish the job that way.

Other Thoughts: I think most people who one-egg engenius products just quit too early in the setup procedure. It's a nice way of saying they aren't capable of navigating the setup page...or rather pages. I spent over an hour fully customizing mine. I wanted to setup a different name and password and it seemed to take forever until I realized saving the settings wasn't enough. I had to load them as well. It's hard to know exactly what to do without any kind of booklet manual. Even the CD manual wasn't useful when I was trying to figure out how to set this thing up. But eventually it worked and I'm glad I stuck with it. I live on the 6th floor of a condo building. Thick concrete walls and such. My chromecast wasn't working in the next room...very little connection. Cloud based movies over wifi was absolutely impossible even in 480i. But now the entire 1200 sq ft unit is covered in 30mbps wifi. I was even connected in the elevator and outside on the street in my car. I went two blocks down and still connected (barely at that point). Simply put, this is the last router I was will buy. I'm curious to see what amplified antennas would do to this connectivity. But for now...I'm extremely happy with the results. So much so that I don't care what hassles the set up was. Worth every second to enjoy steady and fast wifi. Business management, or home use...this AP will get the job done.

2 out of 5 eggsLots of features, low stability

Pros: Very feature rich

Cons: Somewhat unstable. My devices (laptops, prints, cell phones, tablets, etc) start having connectivity problems after the device has been up from 1 week to 2 months. Sometimes a reboot fixes it, sometimes it needs logs cleared, sometimes it needs a ROM flash (same version, just a re-flash). Seems to be some type of local storage problem.

Other Thoughts: It's a nice WAP that exposes every iota of its capabilities. I haven't tweaked much at all. Just wish it was rock solid out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsEnGenius ECB350

Pros: Powerful. Great range. Small. PoE. Multiple SSIDs and VLANs. EnGenius makes a great product all around.

Cons: The web configuration could be a little better.

Other Thoughts: Great WAP. The configuration GUI can be tricky for first time users when making and saving changes.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat device but minor gripes

Pros: I have a large home and needed additional AP coverage in the basement. This nicely complements other Engenius APs in the house. It is stable and performs very well so far, and I expect it to be as good as the other Engenius APs I own.

Cons: But! Unlike the EAP600, this does not come with mounting screws for the mounting holes on the bottom of the unit. That would not be so bothersome if the screw holes were a more common size. I have to go to the hardware store to find screws that will work to mount this, and that's a pain. Also, set up is a bit of a hassle as with the EAP600. You will want to download the latest firmware before you begin, as you have to change the IP address in your computer's NIC to set this up and that will take you off the WWW.

Other Thoughts: All in all, I'm happy with this device, and would recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply, Awesome

Pros: So, i wanted a wireless AP that could give me the coverage my other AP couldn't. This one fits the bill very nicely. In rooms where i had just 1 or 2 bars of signal strength, i now have full bars. It has lots of features, and options, most of which I'll probably never use, but it's nice to know they are there, in case i do. I recommend this product to any techie out there.

Cons: Just one downside. This was clearly, not meant for the average home user who doesn't know the difference between WEP and WPA2. You need to be very familiar with wireless technology to set this up with no problems. You don't need to be an expert. If you know the difference between WEP and WPA2, and you know what a VLAN is, then you can probably configure this with minimal problems.

Other Thoughts: This product was meant for business solutions, and not home use, although, it works outstandingly well for home use. If i wanted to see anything different with the product, it would be a more user friendly menu.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Device I've Ever Had

Pros: Small
Light
Supports PoE
Easily Mounted
Has a lot of features

Cons: I purchased 3 of them, 2 for my internal corporate network and 1 for use as a guest network for non corporate devices.

Where to begin:
The two I set up internally worked great for about 3 or 4 months (as did the guest one) Then I started noticing some issues, people would remain connected but traffic would not be routed properly, the only way to resolve it was to have the user disconnect/reconnect to wireless or to power cycle the devices. It happened maybe once a month, so I ignored it and scheduled a reboot every 24 hours on the devices (built in function - does not work) Then slowly it became twice a month twice a week, every day, every few hours (oddly the guest one still functions perfectly to this day) I replaced them with cisco devices thinking maybe its just too much load for them (30 ish machines pushing a lot of data around).

I couldn't even get wpa2 with radius functioning (was able to get this up on the cisco devices in about 30 mins)

I took them home and set them up, they barely function as end user wireless devices.

Other Thoughts: These things are garbage, they function poorly, do not perform well, and sadly, were a waste of money. This is unfortunate, because they have tons of features.

Cons: web interface isnt really for the beginner.

Other Thoughts: good little device

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Range!

Pros: The range is great. It reached every corner of our property and started to lose strength in the neighbor across the streets back yard. I turned around and came back home at that point. So it makes a great AP that covers a large area.
It looks good, I like how you can shut the LEDs off once you got it up and running, and I like the PoE so you don’t have to use yet another plug if you got the ability to send PoE.
I like the Traffic Shaping option in the Wireless Advanced Settings. It is a great option for those with limited bandwidth. Make an SSID and passphrase, limit it to 10 percent and make another for yourself and put it at 90%. Enjoy streaming your videos!

My old router setup as an AP did not give me coverage in our sheds near the back of our property and having a laptop or tablet down there is a great commodity when you need the internet to look for help on something. I was really excited to hear this offered twice the range. (Or more, because it took me all the way to the neighbors across the streets backyard to lose a bar on my iPod! That was only through one wall though, so that may have helped.)

Cons: Not easy to setup. It’s about as difficult as setting up a spare router as an access point. Everything was going great for the first week, but I had the same “Great Signal, No Internet” problem someone else had mentioned. I went to the Schedule setting and made an event to reboot everyday at five in the morning. (I hope, I assume it would use Military Time since it didn’t have AM or PM). Hopefully that will prevent any loss of internet from happening in the future!
I hate how I have to put it on a PC, change the network adaptor to 192.168.1.21 and enter the subnet mask just to get into the configuration. I really don’t want this thing acting as a router (AP Router is a must for remote access) because I want my router that supports the 5GHz band and the new AC standards. I get 30Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 80Mbps on the 5GHz band. (100-110 if I’m in the same room as the router)

The device was designed for professionals. There isn’t any education in the settings, no tips on which setup does what, which would best suit your needs, and such. If you don’t know if you want a Client Bridge, AP, AP Router, Client Router, Repeater or WDS AP, WDS Bridge, or WDS Station, this won’t help you to determine what you want or need. You’ll have to research each function and weigh the pro’s and con’s of each and go from there. I just wanted a good signal down in the shed so when I’m working on something and need the internet for help, I can use my tablet down there and not have to drop what I’m in the middle of and run up toward the house. I choose to use this as an access point with the same SSID and Passphrase so I wouldn’t have to do anything special.

Other Thoughts: The management software (For when you have more than one of these setup in a network) looks pretty slick, but it is useless if you only have one of these. I held off as long as I could to really test this, because I’m not at all impressed with ease of use. I am really impressed with the distance and performance. (Providing the scheduled reboot daily prevents future malfunctions of “great signal, no internet” that we got a week after running. It may have very well been caused by setting the IP settings to Auto instead of trying to figure out what I should put in and possibly reserving that IP in my router.)

A little more work into this product and it would be a great grab for end users who want better signal all over their property! A setup wizard couldn’t hurt, and setting tips and uses would be really awesome! I understand this is meant for professionals and to use in commercial applications, but why not cater to the millions of other potential customers as well? These two tips would probably cut down the need for customer support too! If a setup wizard suggested a daily reboot since I’m using Auto for my IP Settings, I wouldn’t have ever seen a problem with this device. (Hope I won’t down the road)

I also understand the Save/Reload part of this GUI as if you had to watch that reboot happen each time you changed one little thing, it would make you hate it. However, with all the reviews I’ve read, don’t you think that everyone is onto something here? A message box letting users know their settings have been accepted, but need to be applied to complete the process could go a long way! Thanks to the previous reviews, I set out to look for what they were talking about and even THEN it took me a bit of looking to see it up there under Status . Save/Reload:

Given a choice, I would probably want their better model that supports the 5GHz band since I get better speeds, but with the wireless AC standard taking a hold, I’ll just use this for now.
