Netgear ProSafe WAP is high-quality at a reasonable cost

Summary: I purchased one of these devices for my church. It has been working flawlessly for over a year. I recently purchased another one used and, so far, it also works perfectly. They have a lifetime warranty if purchased new so I'm not clear why someone couldn't get help if they were having problems.

Summary: Whoever "Dependable" is they are clearly a Netgear troll. Just minutes after I logged a totally negative review of this equipment, we get this sophomoric testimonial from this paid hire. I repeat. THIS EQUIPMENT DOES NOT WORK.
Summary: This is the worst piece of computer equipment I have ever purchased. The access point works for ten to fifteen minutes and then won't connect. Only after I purchased it and found the problems, I went on a number of different blogs where I found that many many people were having the same problem.
Summary: First and most important... this is NOT a router or a switch. It has just one Ethernet port and that is for plugging into a router or switch. It has one function and that is allowing wireless devices attach to an existing working network.
Summary: I have installed many of these in value-conscious business networks. One has failed but it was in a humid location (commercial kitchen). I really like the multi-SSID capabilities which allow me to setup a 'guest' network and a secure network on the save device.
Pros: Reliable, multiple SSID, Rogue AP detection, good session capacity and data rate, can run off PoE.
Cons: Plastic case, occasional interference issues, average coverage
