  1. I just bought a 6500 sqr foot house and was expecting an expensive hassle to get wifi coverage everywhere. Wow was I wrong. I have been buying on Amazon for years and this is first review I have written (that i can remember). This professional grade system was amazingly simple to set up. I bought two of these devices and that was all I needed. Search on YouTube for OpenMesh video showing install walkthrough at Aurora Dental clinic and you will have all you need. Took me 15 minutes max and that’s largely because I was moving slow and exploring the various options (you can set up a splash page and charge people to use your wifi if you want). Features are more than I need but this solution is actually cheaper than other consumer-grade options I was exploring so I’m very happy.UPDATEI just added a 3rd node after a couple of weeks to strengthen signal in my basement. Took me all of 2 minutes to configure on Cloudtrax web site and everything is working perfectly. Amazing. I have no idea why this product isn’t beating the pants off other router, antennas and repeaters on this site that cost 2-3x more and are much less elegant.

  2. Update (3/21/2018) I ordered another two of the OM2P units for use at home. I have a total of 4 at home (its a large 2 story house). I was pleased to see that what arrived were the newer v4 units that already had the latest firmware. They work great just like the other OM2Pv2 units. It took less than 2 minutes to add the MAC address to the my account on the Cloudtrax website, plug them into the LAN, let the configuration download and then deploy them. So easy.Original Review: The term “mini router” is not quite correct. These are multi-function wireless network devices. The idea behind open mesh is that when you install multiple devices they form a self healing wireless network mesh.First off, each of the Open Mesh models can talk to any of the other Open Mesh models. You can mix and match them any way you want. The Open Mesh devices can function as either a gateway or a repeater. If you plug a network cable from your existing router into the device’s LAN port, the Open Mesh device will become a gateway. If you don’t plug any :LAN cable in, it will become a repeater and automatically start looking for an Open Mesh gateway. It is NOT a universal repeater, it will not talk to non Open Mesh wireless access points. You must have at least one Open Mesh device as a gateway. You can have as many gateways as you want. You can also have as many repeaters as you want, the repeaters can have multiple hops, they do recommend no more than 5 hops. The repeaters can service wireless and wired clients simultaneously (yes they can function as a wireless bridge).Each Open Mesh device can have up to 4 different SSIDs although they all use the same one radio. You can set each SSID to have WPA2 encryption or no encryption at all. You can set each SSID to have bandwidth throttling or not. You can allow wireless clients access to the wired LAN devices (like other computers or network printers) or not. You can block wireless clients from being able to see other wireless clients. Please note that when you allow wireless client access to your LAN (as you normally would for a private SSID) your existing router’s DHCP server assigns the IP address address. If your router is set to assign 192.168.1.xxx IP addresses then all wireless clients on the private SSID will get 192.168.1.xxx IP addresses. However, if wireless clients use an SSID that has been blocked from the LAN devices, the Open Mesh “mini-router” will use its own DHCP server to assign them IP address of 10.255.199.xxx and the wireless clients can’t see any of the 192.168.1.xxx clients or see any of the other 10.255.199.xxx clients. Your existing router will not even see these 10.255.199.xxx clients.I am using 6 of the OM2Pv2 devices at an equestrian facility that covers 13 acres. 2 devices are indoors and 4 device are outdoors (there’s a cool outdoor enclosure available). There are 3 gateways and 3 repeaters. Two repeaters are 1 hop repeaters about 250 ft from the gateway and one repeater is a 2 hop repeater, about 250 ft from the first repeater. I find that the OM2P units with the replaceable external antennas work best for long distances. They are also the least expensive. I replace the original antennas with the 5 dBi antennas off old ASUS RT-N12 routers. The only Open Mesh devices with internal antennas I have tried were the OM5P-AC dual band radio units and I was disappointed with the range. I had them installed as a gateway but changed over to a OM2Pv2 and the signal strength was much better. Getting 40Mbps link speed with the OM2Pv2 units.You don’t setup these devices like normal network devices. There is no setup webpage inside the device. Instead everything is configured in the “cloud” but don’t worry its included with the device for free. The CloudTrax management takes a little while to get use to but once you look around and figure out where everything is its great. The best thing about it is the information gathered about the network. It will show you the network traffic throughout the day or week or month. It shows the network usage by individual users too so you can find out who is hogging all the internet bandwidth and you can see at what time of the day they were doing it too. You can set it to email you if a device goes down. The network info seems to get refreshed every 5 minutes from what I can tell. That’s good because the Open Mesh devices aren’t constantly sending out data and using up your upload bandwidth. Downside is that you can’t tell what it happening “real time” only what happened 5 minutes or more ago.I did have one problem with wired clients on one of the repeaters. If the wired client uses a static IP address they may lose internet connectivity and only a client reboot will fix it. However, if the wired clients use DHCP to request an IP address, all is well. Wireless clients are not affected. So if you are picky about what IP addresses a repeater’s wired clients use, then configure your main router to assign the IP address, when that client requests a DHCP IP address the main outer gives them the one you want them to have.About the power supply. It is true that these normally are sold without the power supply. That’s because there are two totally different ways to power these things. One way is through the DC power jack. It accepts any voltage between 12V and 24V @ 1A (which is really cool because even an old 12V @ 1A Netgear adapter works fine) or it can accept 24V “passive” POE (either the Open Mesh injector or the Ubiquiti UBI-POE-24-1 injector work fine) for the OM2P or real 48V 802.3af POE for the higher cost models.

  3. I have ordered and received two two open mesh OM2P802.11gn PNP wireless units which have never worked since the were received in March 2017.We have 5 others which have been connected successfully and these 2 were ordered with the expectation that they would compliment and help get data to the establishment which we operate. We have contacted the open mesh person and a Tech person who have been trying to flash and reboot the units with no avail. This is now seven months of no connection. Apparently, these are resold units which was hooked up to another company and could not be connected to ours because the IP addresss was not erased from the previous company data. We had that sorted out..but no change. Open Mesh, when brand new, would log onto without a any effort. Great product which comes in handy for our internet needs.

  4. Using this AP for hotspots in my customers sites (bars, coffee shops, fitness centers) and using HotspotSystem on top of the firmware. Had an initial issue with the one I received: for some reason it said it was already part of a Doctor’s Office network. A quick call to support and they answered with real people and real tech support. Within a few minutes I was up and running. Very reasonable price, easy setup, great features, and responsive tech support.

  5. These little units are great value for the cost. I was able to set up a mesh network connecting three different sites, using 9 dBi colinear antennas, and create fail-over between DSL connections. Highly recommended and was a breeze to set up. The cloudtrax website allows remote monitoring, but requires you to be on the web, so this is not recommended when you have a single unreliable connection (look at Ubiquity’s stuff for some good equipment with a local administrative interface.
