ZYXEL Wireless Access Point Dual Band 802 : A decent WiFi access point that doesn’t look like a spider.

Easy and cost effective way to get great wifi coverage in your home. . Once you’ve configured this zyxel access point it just gets on and does a great job of providing excellent wifi coverage. This is a professional piece of kit and you do need to download and read the comprehensive 130-odd page manual from the zyxel website. As an it professional it wasn’t too hard to configure, but many would find it useful to have a ‘simple configuration’ guide which is sadly missing. I suppose i could dock a star for that, but i’m not going to as this device works so well. It will work as a simple repeater but to relegate it to that task defeats the object of using it. Using it as a true access point (ap) hardwired back to the main router is the way to go. I’ve used various repeaters before to extend my virginmedia superhub v2 which is located in my office to one side of my house and found them wanting, especially when streaming video. I have the ap mounted high on the wall in my hallway roughly centrally in my 5 bed, 3 story, 1930’s house and coverage is excellent. It generates significantly more transmit power and has a more sensitive receiver than the superhub; side by side there’s no comparison on range and while both give a 72mbps link speed (on 2.

A decent wifi access point that doesn’t look like a spider. . Good signal strength all around house. Multiple ssids – routed to different tagged vlans – are possible – even if the config is not entirely obvious. Obviously to do this you need a vlan capable switch/router/firewall. Nice to be able to separate the older devices and have a ‘fast’ wifi connection enabled. The webui is a bit dated, and the configuration logic can be a little confusing, but since i don’t spend all that much time configuring it, i’m ok with that.

Would recommend it for those with technical knowledge. Firstly this is not a plug and play device, you will need to configure it first. It took me a couple of hours but once it’s working, it works. Beware that you need to go on the web gui to shut down the device if you need to power it off. I’ve been looking around for something good and stable to replace the standard wireless that comes with the isp’s ‘router’. I will warn potential buyers that you will need to understand how wireless works and have some basic networking knowledge. The box doesn’t come with useful instructions, you will need to go to zyxel’s homepage and find documentation there. This device uses gigabit ethernet (1000mbps). I was nearly fooled into buying a different wireless 802. 11ac device that only has fast ethernet (100 mbps) why buy ac1200 wireless if your going to be bottlenecked by your lan connection right?it really does look like a smoke alarm.
