5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for small network

Pros: Simple and easy to setup for the average user if you are using other cisco equipment. Works well with layer 3 switch using dhcp If you purchase a poe layer 3 switch, you won't need the additional power supply.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg sells cisco but fails to offer cisco smartnet contracts to other than newegg business. They should not provide cisco at all on their standard accounts.

4 out of 5 eggsGood AP

Pros: Rubber feet; Runs relatively cool

Cons: Doesn't come w/ AC Adapter; Not as aesthetically pleasing as 1130ag.

Other Thoughts: My 1130ag died and I bought this as a replacement. The overall construction and design of the 1600 is better than the 1130 though the 1600 is uglier. The 1600 runs sooo much cooler than the 1130, plus it has rubber feet to properly sit on desks, the 1130 does not. The 1600 has a slight advantage on range as well but not by much. With all that said it's taking a ding for the power cord. My 1130ag came w/ one years ago and I personally believe this should too. I ended up buying the new Cisco AC adapter for the power savings even though the old 1130 AC adapter works on this unit.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

Pros: Great Product. I installed it in my home. I now have Enterprise level reliability for my wireless connections. No more cheap WAPs that need reboots.

Cons: Slightly harder to configure. Can be done through the Web interface instead of CISCO IOS for most simple installations.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to use the easy setup wizard to initiate the configuration. Then finish the custom configurations in the SSID manager. Finally turn on the actual wireless controller so it can start servicing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Device, sturdy

Pros: This is a device you come to expect from Cisco. Once you get it working, it works really well. The device itself is sturdy, and the included mounting bracket suits its job well. A separate power injector from Cisco worked just fine for getting power to the device.

Cons: The web interface is "meh", but everyone's been saying that for all Cisco products for years. There are some features you just can't manage with the web interface. You'll only get so far configuring it over HTTP. After that, it's back to the good ol' console. For example, turning off the LED status indicator. Not exactly something you want to see in a home.

Other Thoughts: This all depends on what your expectations are. If you are expecting something easy to configure and get working in a few minutes, this is not for you. If you are familiar with Cisco equipment and have managed them in the past, this device is relatively easy to manage.

This device is actually used in my townhouse, not at work. There is a lot of WiFi congestion in my area. After some careful selection of bands and frequencies, things are pretty solid.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for small offices

Pros: Great coverage in our small office. Includes mounts for hard-points (screws into wall/ceiling) or for drop-ceilings. Quite slim and blends into the ceiling nicely.

Cons: EXPENSIVE - more than it really needs to be, even for a genuine Cisco product. Doesn't come with a power supply (half-expected as it's supported on any PoE switch). For a standalone access point, it doesn't come with any instructions for configuration so you'd need to be fluent in Cisco's IOS language (and have an appropriate Cisco console cable) or be familiar with the arcane Cisco web-based configuration tools (hosted on the device itself).

Other Thoughts: Like the other reviewer said - it mostly wants you to go through the setup "wizard" and adjust from there. It's certainly not impossible to configure it from scratch but I'm not sure why you'd want to. Setting up WPA2 security is DEFINITELY more difficult than it needs to be.

We have ours mounted from a drop ceiling with excellent coverage about 50-75 feet away through various office walls. Only one device in our office (an iPhone) has some trouble at that distance. Everything else locks on with almost no difficulty.

We're also using an inline PoE injector since the network it sits on doesn't have a switch with PoE built-in. It's nice to have just the one plug going to the unit. I'm tempted to run a second cat6 line to it for the serial console port, though, so I can access that directly from my desk.

If it didn't work so well after the difficulties getting it set up with WPA2 and for the price, it wouldn't get as good a rating from me as it does. But the fact that it does work so well mitigates much of the negatives.

5 out of 5 eggsOh Cisco... You taunt me so...

Pros: Well... Cisco and the 1600-series... what can I say?

It can do just about anything and configure just about any way you want it to. It is a very sturdy AP. It comes with a decent wall-mount bracket.

Lifetime warranty.

When it is finally working - it works. Well.

Cons: Setting this thing up is a nightmare. It seems the unit wants you to use the "Easy Configuration" at least once, and then to modify from there. I'm serious. It is that lame.

You need to buy the AC Adapter if you aren't using PoE (typical).

Other Thoughts: It still gets the 5* because it is one of the better internal-antennae APs out there. Aside from the config nightmare, this thing runs fast and quiet.

Reliability and speed is key, and since this particular one is going into a medical office, it fits the bill.
