Customer Reviews of TRENDnet TEW-455APBO 14dBi High Power Wireless Outdoor PoE Access Point
Nice Outdoor Access Point12/22/2008
I set this up in Access Point mode for a small lodge to provide wireless internet access to all rooms. It's been working great for a couple of weeks now. The quick installation guide that comes in the box will get the access point up and running in just a few minutes. The actual mounting can be time consuming in terms of running wire, crimping the RJ45 plugs, and making the weather sealed end for the plug that connects to the access point but if you like doing it yourself it is quite fun and if you do it for living then it's a piece of cake. The full detailed manual will have to be downloaded from Trendnet's website. It's not the best written manual to understand all of the available features. I did have a problem configuring the Access Point and their 24x7 phone support walked me through the process. I would recommend the product to anyone with basic wired and wireless networking knowledge.
