Here are three different Wireless Access Points with similar specs:
- $875 CISCO AIR-AP1252AG-A-K9 Wireless Access Point
- $150 NETGEAR WNAP210-100NAS Prosafe Wireless Access Point
- $49 TP-LINK TL-WA901ND IEEE 802.11b/g/n 300Mbps 3 antennas Wireless N Access Point
There's a 17-fold different in price between the cheapest and most expensive. All three support 802.11n and WPA2. The TP-LINK does not support PoE but the others do.
With networking equipment, I'm used to "getting what you pay for"... but I can't understand who is purchasing $875 WAPs and what they are using them for.
What am I missing?
