      It was very easy to set up, although I had issues with the connection dropping frequently with a laptop running Windows 7. After two chat sessions, updating the laptop drivers, and re-flashing the firmware on the WAP, it works fine now. I get a very strong signal and it is very steady throughout the house with a variety of wireless devices.

      The reflash sequence was a tad tricky, in that you had to hold the reset for 30 seconds and then power off/on the device to truly complete the update.

      It was good to see that Linksys support was pretty good and assisting with the issue.

      Bought this product from B&H for home use. Have to power cycle every day, it would regularly stop accepting new connections and letting clients obtain IP address from DHCP.
      The issue is well documented by other users on Cisco forums, no response ever came from Cisco/Linksys, everyone is waiting for a firmware upgrade which might never come!

      Comments about Linksys Wireless-N Access Point with Dual-Band:

      The device is great but don't expect much from their support. Because we installed this on a complex environment, the application it came with could not see the device. We could not even connect to it directly or by pass their stupid application. So bad that even their support could not help. We spend 2.5 hours trying to make it work. Although it is a good device for admins out there expect headaches

            Comments about Linksys Wireless-N Access Point with Dual-Band:

            I bought the access point to improve wireless coverage in the house. For various reasons, our wireless router had to be in one corner on the second floor and devices in the basement (including the PS3) would receive intermittent/spotty coverage.

            This access point is now sitting in the middle of the ground floor and is connected to the upstairs router via an ethernet cable.

            There isn't much to say -- set-up was a breeze and now there is a constant, strong signal in all areas of the house.

            Easy to setup it was up and running in mere minutes. the problem is that it doesn't play well with my DHCP server on my other Cisco Wireless router. So to use this I had to set up my computers to use fixed IP addresses. Not hard to do, just an annoyance that I had not counted on.

            I bought an iPad and an iPhone 4. My WiFi router is in an upstairs utility closet. I had trouble with the iPad's connection to the router when it was downstairs. I also had trouble with dropped calls on my iPhone because my home is apparently in an AT&T "dead zone." I connected the Cisco by Linksys Wireless-N Access Point to a downstairs Ethernet port (which required some internet research and computer configuration) and I now have very reliable and fast Wifi internet connection for both my iPad and my iPhone throughout my home. No more missed or dropped calls.

            THis is over all a good AP. It is a little more expensive than I expected. When I researched on the internet, it looked as if this unit was able to do Power over Ethernet. However, it is not. You are paying for the Cisco brand. Good brand, but there are cheaper options outr there that are just as good.
