Product Overview

Main Features
  • Wireless access point
  • Wi-Fi
  • Dual Band
The combination of 802.11ac Wi-Fi and MIMO and TurboQAM technology allows EAP series devices to offer an unbeatable Wi-Fi experience. Broadcom enterprise-class chipsets offers amazing enterprise-grade performance, resulting in longer spans of stable operation and larger client capacities. The dedicated high-power amplifier, professional antenna, and well-designed RF shield ensure great wireless performance. Link aggregation combines two wired connections to double throughput and provide a redundant link for Internet access. Airtime Fairness improves total Wi-Fi throughput by limiting access time for low speed devices.

Band Steering pushes dual-band devices to the wider and faster 5GHz band, improving overall network performance, especially in high client density environments. Beamforming technology achieves superior Wi-Fi bandwidth utilization and increases Wi-Fi range by creating efficient, highly targeted Wi-Fi connections Captive portal provides one convenient method of authentication for Wi-Fi guests. A captive portal requires users to perform certain actions before network access is allowed. The required action must be verified by an external portal server or customized database by the administrator, which can be simply viewing and agreeing to an acceptable use policy, or entering a user ID and password.

TP-LINK Auranet EAP330 - wireless access point is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from firmware is buggy the ethernet link drops very frequently, especially for the POE port. The firmware version is not correct, when I flash v1.170930 for my devices, it shows V2 in the EAP controller software, and I don't know why 0930 firmware released on 1130

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid in function and design This was a retail purchase after doing some research. My Netgear AC1900 router was getting a little long in the tooth, so I decided that it was time to upgrade my home wifi. I did not want to replace my consumer grade radio with another, so I researched various commercial quality products. The EAP330 met my needs, and I gave it a go. Good decision. First things first - I upgraded the firmware. Then after getting the rascal installed and set up, I shut down the Netgear radios to use it in a router-only configuration. With the EAP330, my wifi performance and coverage was markedly better than before. I had stronger signal and coverage throughout, even in areas that were physically closer to the Netgear radios. Amazing. Two story home with 3500 sqft, and I have good wifi throughout. In my home office, near the AP, my Dell laptop hit 1296 on the 5GHz AC in a LAN speed test. Yes, that will do nicely, thank you. Getting into the various configurations of the EAP330 was a little challenging, for no other reason that it has so many settings to choose from. I set it up with a static IP, set the passwords, scheduled the radios to shut down from midnight to 5 am ( wardrivers, you know!), configured the date/time and timeservers, turned off the LED, and finally backed up the settings. Since this is the only AP on my network, I used the web interface in standalone mode for configuration, rather than Managed Mode with the EAP Controller software. I'm sure that there are more things to play with later (like the portal for guests), but for now I'm good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast One of the best things I immediately noticed about this product was how easy it was to set up. I feel confident that even a very inexperienced user could very, very easily setup this AP. It is almost plug and play. The configuration page you reach (after connecting to the AP, you must navigate to a web address in browser) is very intuitive as well. The speeds I get from this AP are incredible. Another thing I liked was the capability for the AP to operate dual band. There were two improvements I would recommend for this product. The first being that PoE be integrated into the AP, for those it is applicable for. However, most consumers probably don't even have this capability. The second thing I would change, is to decrease the length of the antennas, if possible, so that the AP can be stored in a smaller area. Overall, the AP performs great for me and I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small business Big features "This is a review of a free product received from TP-Link as part of the review program." First let's be clear this is an Access Point not your traditional SOHO router, and is really meant for business use. It is very feature rich, with captive portal for those wanting to limit access kind of like a hotel. It also has the ability to send logs to a log server via email or send directly to a log server. Once you plug the EAP330 in to your switch the AP starts up and the LED turns green. At this point you will need to download the EAP controller software or find the EAP330 on your network and try to configure it via the web interface. The best route to go is the EAP controller software, it provides a nice GUI/web page setup process, it may take some time for a novice user to get used to but the help and documentation are pretty good. I found myself referring to them a bit. The controller software is nice and being able to manage and upgrade multiple AP's is very nice. Another nice feature is the ability to use PoE if you have that capability One thing to point out is that in other AP's I have noticed various hiccups in speed tests on the local network. The speed to upload and download files locally through the EAP330 is fast, steady and reliable. The EAP330 also came with wall and ceiling mount hardware. I prefer wall mount however the TP-Link logo is upside down when you use the wall mount, is that a deal breaker no, it just looks bad. At first I didn't care for the EAP Controller software but after using it for a little while I found it was fairly easy to use and the central management is really nice. Adding other AP's is very easy as well, and the ability to upgrade all AP's at once is a nice feature. The big difference in the EAP330 vs the EAP320 is the link aggregation and through put speed. This is a nice AP for a business with a small, but knowledgeable IT department.
