5 out of 5 eggsGreat little device

This review is from: ZyXEL NWA1121-NI Single-Radio Ceiling Mount N300 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater

Pros: Discrete device, looks like a smoke detector. Great when the wife doesn't want something with siz black antennas sticking off it in the middle of the living room. Very capable devices with tons of options and features. Far better than I expected.

Cons: None, great device.

3 out of 5 eggsNWA1121-NI

This review is from: ZyXEL NWA1121-NI Single-Radio Ceiling Mount N300 Gigabit PoE Access Point (AP)/Repeater

Pros: Does what I need it to do.
No connectivity problems.
Easy to mount.
Unobtrusive appearance.

Cons: The major con for me is the fixed IP address. If your router is not set to 162.168.1.x you can't access the device's settings interface. It seems shortsighted to me to ship a unit that requires the user to reconfigure her network if she's not using default settings.

Security settings and interface are somewhat obscure. I needed to do some reading and research to determine the best settings for my use. It wasn't too difficult in the end.
2.4 GHz only.

Not getting 300 Mbps (but it only claims "up to" 300 Mpbs).

Other Thoughts: This was a good value on sale and with an email coupon code, even though some of the savings were negated by the cost of a PoE injector. My router is at one end of the house and I wanted to get a better wireless signal to areas at the far end, and this does that. The performance is not spectacular, but depending on the device I consistently get speeds of 65–130 Mbps compared to the 24–54 they were getting directly from the router (802.11g @ 2.4 GHz).

The fixed IP address is incomprehensible to me. My LAN does not use the standard 192.168.1.xx so I could not communicate with this device over the LAN. Fortunately I have a spare router that I reconfigured to 192.168.1.1 and connected to an old PC so I could change the IP to automatic and assign it in the router (I keep my devices set to obtain the IP address automatically but give them reserved addresses in the router). If your LAN is already 192.168.1.x (as long as x does not = 2) you shouldn't have any problem accessing the management software; if not, you'll need to change your network settings temporarily to communicate with the unit.

The speeds I'm getting from the unit are somewhat disappointing, although this appears to be partly device-dependent. I can get 130 Mpbs with a Nexus 10 tablet, but only 65 Mpbs with a 2nd-gen Moto X smartphone when near the unit. I configured it to use the N band so range isn't that great, but the unit is near the devices I want to connect to it. For the price I can't complain, but if I see a promotion for the dual-radio version I might pick it up so I can get the N band on the 5 GHz frequency and set the 2.4 GHz band to G. I imagine the mount is the same for both.

I don't have any practical way to test, but I wonder if the TrendNet PoE injector I'm using has any affect on throughput. I'm running Gigabit Ethernet through 75 feet of CAT6 cable (Gigabit from wall to devices).
