5 out of 5 eggsSuccess!!

Pros: Customer Service was excellent.
Product works better than described.
I was building a network bridge between two houses and this creates the wireless access at the second house. I purchased one of these, one of their switches and two of their antennas, per their customer service recommendations. Works perfect! Speedtest shows 58+ Mbps intenet download speed at the second location, which is basically the full speed of the wired location at the primary spot. Probably only bridged a quarter mile, but I'm super pleased with the set up. :) VC

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic AP

Pros: - Great coverage, even in a large house over multiple floors.
- Supports PoE+ for full gigabit speed and power over a single ethernet cable.
- Supports multiple SSIDs and Vlans.
- SSID to Vlan mapping, so I can keep my guest wifi traffic isolated.
- Fast, comprehensive GUI. All the settings and information is easily accessible. There's also a CLI.
- Ceiling mountable. Mounting bracket is also compatible with their newer EAP1750h model when I eventually upgrade.
- They offer free software that can manage multiple access points simultaneously. (I have not tested this)

Cons: - CLI is telnet, not SSH.

Other Thoughts: This is a great solution for anyone who wants a ceiling mounted access point with support for PoE+, multiple SSIDs, Vlan mappings, and other features usually only found in more expensive business-oriented products.

4 out of 5 eggsInteresting setup, good performance

Pros: -Good range, covers the 2,200 sq ft of the house with no issues, makes it outside into the yard too.
-Performance as far as speed is what I would expect. I can get about 80mbps when sitting 20 feet away, the AP is on the other side of a wall.
-Web interface is easy to use (see cons though)
-Looks slick, blends in great on ceilings
-Concurrent dual band with band steering works seemingly well so far.

Cons: -Web interface is slow compared to other similar products I've used
-Setup process. I could not get VLAN tagging to work properly the first go around, more on this later.

Other Thoughts: Overall I like this AP, well I like it now that its working and has been working for about a day. Initial setup was not an issue, the issue was when I tried to configure VLAN tagging for multiple SSIDs on here. Let me clarify that the switches and everything else were already preconfigured, I was using a Dlink DAP2553 with VLAN tagging before on the same port.

After setting everything up VLAN tagging would not work properly, it would tag one SSID properly, but not the second SSID even though both were setup for isolation and with a VLAN ID. I confirmed this with a wireshark capture + SPAN, sure enough there were no 802.1Q tags on the one SSID. I tried rebooting the AP, thinking it was just being finicky, didn't help. I triple checked the configuration, nothing worked. I decided to factory reset the AP, then I went and did the exact same configuration again, and it worked. I have no idea why, but SPAN + wireshark confirm proper tagging on all SSIDs now.

This is somewhat concerning, I'm worried if I make a change in the future that tagging will stop working, but for now all seems good...

1 out of 5 eggsTakes your router IP

Pros: Features, price

Cons: This thing requires 192.168.1.1 out of the box, which is what most people use as their router IP address and will immediately cause a conflict if you connect it to your network. Every other brand of AP I've used defaulted to a higher address. Now I have an IP address conflict with my router that bumped 100 users off the internet.

Other Thoughts: Beware, don't make any assumptions when you configure this thing. I'm still shaking my head that they would have given it 192.168.1.1 as it's IP address out of the box when it's not a router.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anthony M.,


We appreciate your time in posting your comments and feedback.

The IP address of the EAP600 does have to be changed during the initial configuration depending on the IP scheme of the network. This is done prior to connecting the device to the network.

Please allow us to do some troubleshooting with you. You may reach us through our number at 1-888-735-7888 (Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm PST) or e-mail us at support@engeniustech.com (Saturday, Sunday 8am - 4pm PST). Our support team would be glad to be of service to you.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,

Mike

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product and highly recommend

Pros: Web GUI layout, vLAN support, signal strength, bandwidth steering, PoE capable, looks, mounting hardware, reliability.

Cons: No built in DHCP server for "public" wifi clients. Doesn't impact me as I have a SonicWall appliance. However, I'm certain some would find this a useful feature.

Other Thoughts: I have 6 SSIDs configured (three 2.4 and the same three as 5G) and bandwidth steering works perfectly between them. I have a Netgear GS180T switch and a SonicWall TZ-210 here at home. With this combination I'm able to completely isolate the traffic between my LAN and WLAN based on SSID & wireless frequency as desired.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless Product, Even More Useless "Support"

Pros: Band Steering.
Guest Network.

Cons: No one can keep a connection.
EnGenius support has ignored my requests for help.

Other Thoughts: I have deployed EnGenius APs for countless clients. When the EAP900H was not in stock at Newegg, I was upsold on the EAP1750H.

The product has not been working since the beginning. None of the users can stay connected to the WAP. They may be able to connect for a few minutes, then the connection drops (signal still shows as Excellent, the device just loses the connection). A few minutes later, the device may reconnect, only to lose it again within seconds. More often than not, the devices just permanently lose the connection.

For a few devices that actually can stay connected, the Internet stops working eventually. They may be streaming video or loading regular websites, and then suddenly no data, even though they are still connected and show full signal strength.

Initially I called Support and they walked me through chaning some settings. None worked. I then changed individual settings myself, testing connectivity after each change. Nothing helped.

We then brought in a cheap $50 Linksys router to use as a WAP, and guess what? It worked perfectly! It has held up for over a week!

I then e-mail support with all of the settings I tried, as well as mentioning the fact that a cheapo router worked, and this is the response I received:

"The EAP1750H is one of our solid Access Point platforms and we haven’t heard any reported issues similar to this...Even the farthest distance wireless device can be considered as interference. If other device/s can stay connected, this is the polite protocol in the real wireless networking world as they wait for a clear path to send information."

What the **** kind of response is this??? I just gave them a boatload of technical details on their product's problem, and they give me this useless canned response!

Needless to say, I will be avoiding their products going forward. They clearly have issues to fix; they do not acknowledge that they have issues to fix; and they obviously have no sense of respect for their customers.

5 out of 5 eggsEAP600 is beast

Pros: Strength and quality of signal is great in my 1700sqft home
Have Comcast 25Mbps pipe, able to get 25-27Mbps on internet speed tests over the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channels
Easy to navigate interface
Lots of options, maybe too many for the average user but I love the ability to customize
LED Control (turn any or all of the LEDs on or off)
PoE - This is the best feature because this access point was meant to be ceiling mounted. I ran some Cat5e through my ceiling and mounted this using a PoE adapter to provide power
Great design, looks like a big smoke detector
Firmware updates easily access from EnGenius website

Cons: Does not come with a PoE injector but I knew that going in. Still would have been nice to have one bundled with it. Without a PoE injector it is very difficult to use this access point as a ceiling mount which is what it is designed for. (unless a lot of people have power outlets on their ceilings.)

Other Thoughts: Overall I would definitely buy this access point again and recommend it to anyone look for good speed and signal quality. I would be very interested to see how two or more of these would operate together but my house is not big enough to warrant that. Looking at the web interface and on EnGenius' website, it sounds like a few of these would be great for a bigger home.

3 out of 5 eggsmulti-SSID with VLAN tagging does not work

Pros: Reasonable cost, dual band support, very pleasing appearance, easy POE installation.

Cons: These units are NOT enterprise ready, at least if you need to use multi-SSIDs with VLAN tagging. This function is just broken. Please see the enGenius forums www.engeniusforum.com, topic EAP600 Problems for additional details.
(http://www.engeniusforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=976)
Note that this has been broken in all firmware releases up to and including 1.5.2. Note that this problem was reported to EnGenius Support by multiple users over the past year, and there has been no apparent progress.

Other Thoughts: The EAP350 works great with multi-SSIDs with VLAN tagging. Too bad the EAP350 is only single band. I sure with the EAP600 would work as advertised!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Snichols,

We can assure you that the Multiple SSIDs and VLAN tagging function has worked since the launch of the EAP600. This is very common configuration and there are literally thousands of EAP600 units deployed in this manner.

We urge you to contact technical support for help on configuration. You may reach us through our number at 1-888-735-7888 (Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 4:00pm PDT) or e-mail us at support@engeniustech.com (Saturday, Sunday 8am - 4pm PDT).. Our support team would be glad to be of service to you.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Engenius Customer Support Team

5 out of 5 eggsGreat coverage for the $

Pros: Powerful, great coverage for the price

Cons: You have to read the manual, - some menu items are not as intuitive as other brands. That said, there is nothing that really compares at this price point.

Other Thoughts: I have deployed in grocery stores and when put in the center ceiling height, it works everywhere in the store (in the coolers, rear areas, parking lot… As with any WAP, make sure you do a site frequency survey an set the unit up correctly. I also used the 5G to bridge for a few distant IP cameras.

3 out of 5 eggsNot enterprise ready

Pros: Nice looking web interface. CLI access is available. 2.4ghz been very stable. VLAN tagging capable.

Cons: 5ghz has been nothing but a hassle. Unable to use a custom channel, only auto. Support has responded once to ask what model and firmware version. I have not heard back as of yet. Some config changes result in no more SSID broadcasting even though it should not matter at all.

Other Thoughts: I really do like the VLAN tagging feature, but I need to be able to set a static 5ghz channel. I chose this based on previous models having great reviews. Looking over at the EnGenius forums shows other people having similar issues with this model.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Frank,

Thank you for purchasing the EAP600.

The EAP600 has been deployed by the thousands in enterprise environments and we can assure you that the 5 GHz channel selection feature does indeed work. In fact, when deployed in a high user density environment where there are many access points, we recommend manually setting static channels. You may have tried setting the EAP600 to a channel in the UNII 2 range which are subject to DFS as mandated by the FCC. For indoor deployments we recommend using channels 36, 40, 44, and 48. Avoid using channels 52 – 140 for the reason already stated, and use channels 149, 153, 157 and 161 for outdoor.

If you require further assistance please call EnGenius technical support 888-735-7888.

Sincerely,

EnGenius Customer Support Team
