4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Easy to setup. Dual antennas.

Cons: Power seems a bit weak. Having trouble with smartphones getting access to internet with it. They can connect to the ap but not the internet always.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Flawless linux support without having to build a kernel module. Very fast compared to the smaller usb wireless adapters (naturally).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm buying another one. With the Edimax "world's smallest" usb wireless adapter I was getting multi-second stalls regularily and pitiful average transfer speed, so this is vastly superior in comparison since it actually -works-.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Sets up easy, used as access point and repeater in a daisy chain setup. Seems to be stable, no failures to date. Despite some reviews on troubled setups, I have not had those issues. The IP address is easily changed to match existing IP. As far as wireless power goes, it saturates the area pretty good. I setup as repeaters for a customer, no access in second building cinder block walls throughout, now whole area is flooded with signal.

Cons: The 5 eggs are not for newegg's prices, just for the device itself. I bought my most recent ones from a competitor, for $12 a piece less....shame on your newegg, where is the willingness to be competitive?

Other Thoughts: Don't let the fact this is a lesser known company(TP-Link) here, I've very impressed with the value/performance and feature rich products. Now that said, I use them for repeaters and access points, not for main routers(my fav is netgear)

1 out of 5 eggsMultiple SSID useless: no isolation

Pros: Inexpensive and easy to configure

Cons: I setup a vlan for a guest network and connected my laptop to it. In sniffing the network, I find that I see traffic for both the vlan *and* the base lan the the vlan is running on. Not even considering the security implications, this causes the laptop to pick up the wrong ipv6 network when autoconfiguring.

1 out of 5 eggsCaps out at 2 connected devices

Pros: Flashy lights. Seems to work. Acceptable interface.

Cons: When I first purchased this Access Point it worked reasonably well - slow, but multiple devices could connect to it. Now it has decided to cap out at a maximum of two connected devices at once, and the only way to get a 3rd connected is to power cycle the Access Point - but then of course one of the first two devices won't be able to connect now that the 3rd one is connected.

I've looked in the settings but I have 20 different ports opened up for wireless connections, but it seems to only use two of them. I've also had two friends who are more educated on networking stuff than I am mess with the interface and AP and they've had no better luck. It just seems that this device is now limited to a maximum of two connected devices.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this AP primarily to grant wireless access when having people over - all my other devices are hard wired into my network. But once two devices are connected, nothing else will connect. Totally unacceptable behavior from an Access Point.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Nice 2.4 GHz WAP with Power Over Ethernet, which is really convenient. Has an easy config page and was pretty easy to set up.

Cons: Odd setup IP of 192.168.0.254, I had to change my IP to access it since my network is 192.168.1.x

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for Light Use

Pros: * Cheep
* VLANs
* PoE
* Multi SSID

Cons: * Passive PoE
* Crashes after about 15 clients
* 100mbps LAN

Other Thoughts: Passive PoE works, it's not the best but at lest it allows deployment where there is no power. I haven't had issues with the default configuration besides dropping at 15 users.

I have about 15 of these deployed and they all crash at or around the 15 client mark. They still broadcast SSID but will boot everyone off and not allow new people to connect without a restart of the wireless chip. This is easiest done but changing the channel width. I leave the width at 20MHz and it appears to work a little better. 90% of the users are just cell phones that are asleep.

Luckily these are cheep enough compared to the competition that is possible to just flood the space with APs.

3 out of 5 eggsit's okay

Pros: Works half decent once it's finally set up.

Cons: Bad default settings. Signal is weak.

Other Thoughts: It took me months of returns and tests to finally figure out what the heck was wrong with the thing. Turns out there was a setting that had it sending a refresh request to connected devices every minute which kills most devices.

5 out of 5 eggsAP

Pros: It is a nice access point for cheap. It has multi-SSID as stated, it serves out DCHP IP addresses. It does not route. The 300 Mbps is obviously not fully accessible through a 10/100 Mbps LAN port

Cons: Could have used a 1 Gbps LAN port to use the full 300 Mbps Wireless access rate.
