EnGenius ESR300H Long Range Wireless N Router up to 300Mbps
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great range. Acceptable setup. No problems with disconnects.

Cons: Security isn't as good as it could be. Took away 1 star because of security. Only allows short admin passwords. Can't disable login over wireless connection. No MAC filtering.

Other Thoughts: I use this to connect to a Rosewill RNX-N150HG usb adapter that is over 4 tenths of a mile away (~2200 ft). I use 2 8dbi omni-directional antennas; one on the router and one on the usb adapter. My connection speeds range from 90 - 150 Mbits/Sec. The usb adapter's max speed is 150 Mbits/Sec.

Both units are in second story windows, and there is a direct line of sight view between them. I used it over winter without trimming some branches that were in the way. But when spring came that the leaves started growing, I had to trim the branches.

Both antennas are directly in front of a window. The router is perched right next to the window and the usb adapter is sitting in the window attached to my laptop with a usb extension.

I have used this router for 6 months. Have yet to use it during hot summer months and will have to see if warm temperatures cause any problems. I purchased a small fan to provide cooling for this router during hot weather. I suspect that many problems with router reliability are caused by overheating from poor airflow.

That being said, I've had absolutely no problems with dropped connections. We tend to unplug it during thunder storms, but other than that, it's on 24/7. I use it mostly for an internet connection, so I it's never under heavy loads.

Would recommend this product to a friend.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works good. Antenna is replaceable. Great range with 8dbi antenna.

Cons: Tends to get in the way when attached directly to laptop. Using a usb extension solves this.

Other Thoughts: Works well with Kubuntu linux. Have not tried Windows.
