Recommend this product?
- simple to setup
- works in pristine wireless environment where it is the only AP
- extremely unreliable in less than pristine wireless environment. In an environment with more than 3 other APs, in an office building for example, you will experience multiple connects/disconnects
- the more advanced encryption scheme the less reliable. Stick to WEP if the environment has multiple APs. It's still unreliable, but it's the lesser evil
Although advertised as an "enterprise"/business AP, and priced a such, you must evaluate your environment before deciding on this unit.
This unit will not perform any better than a cheap home use AP. Some advertised features are no longer available (ex. auto-cell in newer version, v2, and a firmware upgrade of v1 will also remove this functionality)
