5 out of 5 eggs5 Flawless

Pros: Stand alone AP
VLAN Support
802.11 a/b/g/n

Cons: Requires seperate power supply purchase and or PoE injector purchase (to be expected)

Other Thoughts: I had the WAP4410N out of 13 I only have 3 left since they crash without warning and drop connections all the time. These WAP321 seem much much better. I have left two of them left on in high traffic areas without a reboot for about 8 months now running one back on lastest firmware as a test and they are running great!

3 out of 5 eggsMisleading Speeds

Pros: Great device in general. Lots of great options for a small business, including QoS and VLAN support.

Cons: The advertised speed of 300Mbps is misleading when used in the 2.4GHz range. If the 20/40MHz channel bandwidth setting is enabled, the device enforces a "good neighbor" policy if it detects a neighboring AP using a channel within +/- 40MHz (2 channels) of its own channel. What this means is that the AP drops to 20MHz and won't support speeds higher than 144Mbps. To Cisco's credit, this is compliant with the 801.11n-2012 spec and their tech support was great in helping me figure out the problem. But what it means is that older devices that don't have the 2012 regulations will support 40MHz (and 300Mbps) even though they will be considered "bad neighbors".

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent AccessPoint

Pros: *easy setup- it recieved dhcp from my comcast business router. I used belarc to find the ip for setting up my wlan ssid and passphrase (wpa) smooth. my network is faster now. I have two linksys wireless cams (wvc80n) for security recording 24x7 to a network drive and all is smooth now. I tried the Mac Airport Express (10/100 port) was not up to the job

Cons: ***I read the reviews before purchase and had a linksys power adapter around for this device does not ship with that. (?)price is kind of high. It's a Cisco though so I guess that goes with the territory. I believe we usually get what we pay for anyway. I only pay once, and I am hoping it will last longer than my privious Dlink Dap2590(a great accesspoint, except it failed after only three years)

*the wall mount bracket that is included is oddly designed. I popped out the popout, where the wires are supposed to go but it did not fit right so I used dikes to remove the area where the wires were intended to go and now it is perfect.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg Rocks!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WAP

Pros: Very Reliable, myriad of options should you need them.. Perfect pairing with an ASA 5505. Worked well with original Firmware and latest update to seems even better

Cons: None yet.. maybe runs a little warm, but I think that's normal.

If you're not super tech savvy all the options may confuse you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat WAP

Pros: This WAP appears stable and solid. It contains plenty of options including VLAN etc. if you want a good review visit smallnetbuilder. The construction is plastic, but solid. I haven't tried the wireless N yet; many wireless G devices in the home. I am using it in the home, which is overkill. But hey I want stability.

Cons: The interface is slow. Does not come with a power adapter. Any power adapter from linksys recent routers will work, just check the power output to ensure compatibility. One odd thing, the radio is turned off by default. After you run the wizard setup, YOU MUST REBOOT.

Other Thoughts: Messing around with SMB And enterprise equipment is a challenge.
