I purchase three of these units, two to bridge between building and one as a wireless access point in one of the buildings. The products work great and are consistent performers.
The main con with the units is the inability to disable client associations when you are using them as bridges. The check box is there but it cannot be changed. I got around this by enabling the Access Control feature and leaving the allowed MAC addresses blank.
Finding out if the bridge has connected properly is also challenging, it doesn't show on the status displays, you have to look in the log at the connection messages.
The other issue is with Power Over Ethernet - the documentation is not clear how you take advantage of this feature. It turns out after I fished around the Netgear site for a while that you can purchase switches what will provide POE but one would think these would be listed in products associated with this Access Point.
Word to the wise. When using these as bridges, config these APs one step at a time and verify the bridge is still connecting after each step, do this BEFORE you install them on-site, it will save you a lot of heartache in the long run.
