This review is from: EnGenius ESR1221N2 IEEE 802.11 b/g/n Wireless N router up to 300Mbps
The blue LEDs are nice but do not look particularly good with a white case.
Got unit up and running but noticed lags in response time and it looks like router has rebooted a couple times. Connection speeds should be max since unit is only about 20-30 feet from laptops (open air) but they are not. I can get max connection speeds with my other router downstairs at twice the distance. Since unit does not appear to be stable and I need it to be for work will be returning and ordering another one (different brand) like the one I have downstairs. Thought this was a good shell-shocker buy but it has turned out to be a dud.
The unit is very small. It is roughly the size of a bi-fold wallet but has no weight to it so if you use the wired connections on the back there is no weight to hold the front-end down. Also, the interface is basic compared to others routers I have used. One last thing. The specs say it supports multiple SSIDs but this is misleading. You can setup up to four SSIDs with different security parameters but only one can be active at a time so this is basically useless except for initial setup. I used it to setup an open SSID because I initially had issues getting in via the SSID with security and it was easy to switch to the other SSID just to verify wireless was working.
