<div dir="ltr">I have to say, as much as I don't like to say it, I'm leaning right now towards the Ubiquiti APs over anything else right now. If EnGenius indeed uses the exact same hardware, then I really don't understand why I should pay around $80 more for something that doesn't have a central controller (even though said controller is software based and runs on Java - excuse me while I throw up).<div>

</div><div><br></div><div>As David Ingram pointed out, once its configured properly, you don't need the controller. It's nice to have around though, for monitoring purposes. I just hate the fact that it runs on Java and that you have to blow some holes in your Windows-based firewall to make it work properly (at least, that's what I had to do in order to get the controller software to be able to talk to the APs).</div>
<div><br></div><div>Regardless, seems to me that you can do more stuff with Ubiquiti's deployment options, and you can monitor them, and that they'd be easier to configure in the long run, especially if you deploy multiple APs. </div>
<div><br></div><div>Aside from the Java software, I've been impressed with the ones used in my 1 client's location (and now that I know the system, it was really easy to add a 3rd AP to their network, which I did successfully for them recently)</div>

We/I don't play with that level of gear, but I just saw for the first time<br>
big Fujitsu servers and network gear at a clients. I didn't even know they did that kind of stuff... Just curious: Why don't you like it? Doesn't work? Hard to Support? Weird Paradigms? Breaks a lot?<div class="HOEnZb">
