Re: Setting up WiFi for a large home
Well, considering the price of 4 AP's, you will over the price of the 2553 which will provide better coverage than most consumer grade access point. Like I stated, I'm getting better range out of this single corporate grade AP that 4 of the consumer grade AP's. I'm posting this standing in my garage, which is ground level is about 5 feet lower than main level floor and has a 10" concrete foundation and I'm still getting 3 bars. Like stated, I've tried a variety of brands of consumer routers and tried them as an AP only and nothing compares to this one device. You really do pay for quality, though. Wish I would of spent the ~150 from the start for this device, I would of saved myself a ton of time walking around my house with a laptop determining signal strength, power levels and channel ranges.
Also, it's not that I don't trust online reviews, my experience with the device is real life and have only seen similar ranges out of some extremely expensive Cisco AP's that cost as much as some vehicles.
