Product Description

The DrayTek Vigor AP-800 is a standalone wireless access point, ideal for adding wireless connectivity to an existing LAN, or for expanding the range of an existing wireless LAN by using the WDS features. Wireless Security The AP-800 features multiple levels of wireless security. Encryption using WEP, WPA, WPA2 (802.11i) is available you can also use the access control list (ACL) to specify the hardware addresses of clients which are permitted to connect (by MAC hardware address). Any unauthorised hardware is refused access. The Vigor AP-800 supports the 802.1q VLAN protocol so that if it is connected to an 802.1q enabled LAN, it can split tagged data (whether its different subnets or intended for different users) and broadcast each on its own SSID. This means, for example, that your guest WiFi access is provided on a separate isolated SSID with no access to your company data. (802.1q Feature ETA Q1/2011) USB Printer Port the AP-800 has a USB interface into which you can connect a regular printer. That printer is then accessible from any wireless or wired PC which connects to the AP-800, or a PC anywhere else on the network to whick the AP-800 is connected. This is ideal to provide printer access to wireless laptops but could also be used for installing a printer elsewhere in your home/office by using a pair of AP-800s to make a bridge. WMM - WiFi Multimedia The AP-800 implements intelligent wireless traffic prioritization for the most efficient management of wireless traffic by using the Wi-Fi Multimedia standard (WMM). WMM defines Quality of Service (QoS) in Wi-Fi networks. It is a precursor to the upcoming IEEE 802.11e WLAN QoS standard, intended to improve timing critical applications such as audio, video and voice applications over WiFi. WMM adds prioritized capabilities to Wi-Fi networks and optimizes their performance when multiple concurrent applications, each with different latency and throughput requirements, compete for network resources.

I bought the Vigor AP800 Access Point to improve wireless coverage in a part of the house where the connections were often less than perfect. There are much cheaper access points available, but I have a Vigor Router which I've been very pleased with and my experience has been that, although there are the wireless standards, the best performance is most often achieved with units from the same manufacturer.
It set up without any problems and the performance has been everything I'd hoped for. I now have excellent wireless connection throughout the house.
The less good news is that this came from a Marketplace supplier who turned out to be based in Germany. Despite that, delivery time was good, but the unit supplied had a power supply with a European plug and all the enclosed documentation in German. Vigor include a CD with the user manual in different languages, so that wasn't really a problem, but it did mean that I had to go out and buy an adapter (easier said than done when you live in the country) before I could use it.
I've had other experiences in the past where the item supplied by a Marketplace trader didn't conform either to the illustration or description or, like this, was not what you would expect when ordering through Amazon in the UK. This is an aspect that Amazon need to tighten up on if they want to retain customer confidence.

Having seen a few people with comments saying they had trouble setting up this device, let me give any would-be purchasers this advice:

1. Plug it in as per the quick setup guide (cd version is in english if your printed version is not)
2. Switch it on as per the guide
3. Get a paperclip and press the factory reset button at the back for 10 seconds

After this your troubles should go away.

let me explain:
I am an IT expert with too many years experience in networking and software and I COULD NOT CONNECT to this thing.

I tried everything I knew but as far as I could see the box was not listening on the IP address 192.168.1.2 as per the guide,
nor was it active on any other IP address in the 192.168.1.xxx range.

It is anyones guess as to what IP address was assigned to it, or even if it was listening at all.

In the end I did a factory reset and after about 20 seconds of booting up I saw the interface come alive on 192.168.1.2
and immediately the web interface worked.

It immediately played nicely with my DrayTek router, no address collisions, and it used the DHCP of the main router to dish out IP addresses on the Wifi without me having to touch it, so someone at DrayTek had thought through the most likely config for this box.
All I had to do was set a WLAN password and change the admin password, and that's it.

I ran a survey around the house using a free WiFi analyser app on my phone and got these results (-40db is 100% signal, -100db is no signal):

Same room: -45db
Furthest room, same level, 2 heavily insulated fermacell walls: -70db
Upstairs: -65db to -70db
Basement (Reinforced concrete): -75db

So, in summary, a good signal all over our house.

Having used Draytek routers for many years, I thought this was the perfect fit to work in conjuntion with my Vigor 2820 WiFi router, as I moved house recently and needed to extend coverage. Within a couple of minutes it was up and running and working brilliantly.

I felt compelled to write this review having seen the other 1* review, which was completely unfair and probably written by somebody who was trying to use it for the wrong purpose or something.

It also worked particularly well for me, as it has 1 PoE (Power over Ethernet) port, which I've plugged my IP Video Camera into, therefore saving on having to run an additional electrical socket for it.

The WiFi coverage is great and I would happily recommend this product.

I could not get it to work with my DrayTek Vigor 2860( which is only 3 weeks old) and therefore had to download and install an older version of the software to the Vigor AP-800 in order for it to work. Also, the instructions were written in German which was not helpful. Having said that the product itself works very well.

Wanted to extend Wi-Fi network in my local rugby club and was advised by a friend to use DrayTek equipment.
Easy to set up, would recommend.

Been using Draytek components for a number of years now, they work perfectly. However, I do have a technical background and that probably helps as I would not recommend these products for someone who isn't used to configuring Access Points/Routers etc. My only gripe is the item came from a supplier in Germany, so didn't have a UK AC adapter, and the basic documentation was in German (understandably). For future reference I will check where the supplier is based before completing an order as no savings were.

In summary, I would definitely recommend this product.

DrayTek have a well earned reputation for quality products. The negative reviews of needing an IT expert to set this up should be viewed as a positive. If you don't know what your configuring is why are you buying a product like this? DrayTek have some excellent on-line documentation available. Highly recommend.
