I'm impressed! Exactly the product deserves your attention.

These products have served me well in Hong Kong's varied climates for the past two years, during which time I have used them extensively. The devices never became unresponsive, and the pumping speed is greater than 100 Mbps even at a distance of 330 meters (the test between the access point (AP) and the client shows up to 180 Mbps in one direction). On one hand, there is an Internet connection that is 100 megabits per second (Mbps), and on the other, there are more than fifteen clients who are…

  • An affordable price, a frequency of 5 GHz, outstanding signal strength and a high data transfer rate, operation without failures and reboots, straightforward installation and configuration, and regular software (firmware) updates.
  • I purchased four access points, two of which operated at 2.4 GHz and two at 5 GHz. Within a week, I was required to make a warranty replacement for one of the access points. It restarted itself for no apparent reason, and replacing the firmware or the power source had no effect. Another one was functional for an entire year until it started freezing up just a few seconds after being turned on.

Best thing for the money, glad I did it.

I had never dealt with something like this before, so I had to do a lot of reading. Even with an external antenna, Iota is quite exhausted. Since there are no optics in the immediate area, it was essential to invent something. I hurled it down the stairs of a private residence from the balcony of an apartment building. 900 meters of line of sight with a few modest obstructions (such as poles, single tree branches, and wires). My understanding is that if you specify the distance in the…

  • 1. capable of being configured with a low level of expertise required to operate such equipment. 2. PoE 3. Having a low weight and a small footprint.
  • Still haven't been able to locate it.

The Internet and a set of video cameras were something I invested in for myself. Someone I trust suggested him; he has experience with anomalies like these, and I agree with their assessment. have been functional for well over a year, but I still haven't figured out how to set it up on my own. It's better than buying a whistle to get internet in rural areas (100 percent verified). picked up this gadget. I am pulling 600 meters of fiber optic cable from the last source (a new private…

  • The assertions made are correct.
  • Here they say it's not so simple to put together. Learning the fundamentals of a computer won't assist.

Good design and excellent software stability

It took a bit of fiddling to get into the initial setup menu and one of them required a hard reset to work. But once you figured out how to connect (internet videos help a lot), installation was easy and has been running for about 3 weeks with no issues or reboots. Hence -1 star for the ease of setup. Setting up a cloud key might make this easier, but I don't know as I don't have one.

The unit worked great but stopped working in less than a month

So I installed it about 2 miles from my house to my parents house. It took a bit of work, but when we finally got it working, it worked. Stable 5MB download and 3MB download from this distance. After a few rainy days, the device stopped working. I can't believe the structure was defective enough for water to enter. For such a device and cost, it should be built better.

Good work. best wireless access points

I have 2 houses that are 500 feet apart. One of them is too far from the mast so the cable company won't connect services to it, so the only option was to connect DSL, which is only 3Mbps (compared to cable speed of 100-150Mbps ). It took me 1 hour to install and I configured the DSL modem and router combo to use the WAN port and it worked exactly the same in the same house. I installed it indoors in both of my window fronted houses, both have wood paneling, and I was able to get a 3-band…

Great for RV WiFi Access

There are about a dozen cell towers in the park for WiFi distribution. I stay in a metal cladding park model which does a very good job of attenuating the wifi signal from the towers so the reception inside is terrible. I installed a Ubiquiti Nanostation M5 on my roof, pointed it at one of the towers, set it up and connected it to my WiFi router inside. Now with the new system I get 60-70Mbps download speed and 40-50Mbps upload speed. Ubiquiti Nanostation M5 is a great product for my…

This is a great product for a building to building solution

Bought a pair of these to replace a solution I put together a few years ago that eventually died. So I bought them to send a signal to my mom's guest house which is about 1200 feet from my house and this is where the signal is coming from. But it's too far to run an Ethernet cable far. It also needs to send a signal through the trees. I was skeptical at first, but it worked! This easily quadrupled the throughput! From there I added another hotspot (Apple Airport Extreme) to cover the whole…

Great wireless bridge!

I use this device as a wireless bridge. My house is outside of town, in a ravine. I don't have wireless internet access in sight. My neighbor is up the hill and has internet access (wireless). I use two of these devices to connect them together as a wireless bridge. My neighbor's house is about 1/4 mile from here. I programmed two Nanostations using the Nanostation M5 setup via Crosstalk Solutions on YouTube and just wired them together. The house on the hill has 60Mbps internet (I got…
