Last year, we reviewed two 802.11ac access points and six 802.11ac adapters. Earlier this year, we reviewed five mobile 802.11ac devices. Now we take a look at five more 802.11ac devices that have hit the market: four access points and one wireless bridge.
The access points in this round of tests include the enterprise-class Meru AP832, the SMB-class APs EnGenius EAP1750H and ZyXEL NWA1123-AC, and the Amped Wireless APA20 designed for homes and small offices. Then there is the enterprise-class HP 501 Wireless Bridge.
For the access point performance tests, we used four 802.11ac clients: the Samsung Galaxy S5, ASUS AC1750 Dual-band Wireless PCI-E Adapter, MacBook Air, and the HP 501 Wireless Bridge. The ASUS client was included in the previous access point review, while the others were added to the test-bed this time.
