The ECW336 Access Point

The EnGenius ECW336 features a clean appearance. Its square white housing is barely 3.3 cm thick and measures 20.5cm on each side.


The design is non-obtrusive, so you can mount it pretty well in any household. The muted matte surface is easy to maintain and draws less notice. The only branding appears to be a little grey EnGenius logo in the middle.


Near the top is an LED indicator bar with a row of lights similar to the ones on a router. The first is a power indicator, and the second tells if your computer is linked to your router. The third and fourth lights indicate the 2.4GHz, 5GHz and of course, the new 6 GHz bands are operational. You can disable these LEDs through software btw, making the unit even more stealthy as mostly these units are mounted on the ceiling.



You'll see that there are no ports or connectors visible. These are positioned on the rear of the casing, close to the wall or ceiling. The back of the enclosure features a cutout for an Ethernet connector and a DC power input. Additionally, there is a reset button, the type that requires a paperclip to press. BTW a power adapter is not included you'll need to purchase one or connect it through PoE compatible switch. The router Ethernet connector has been updated towards a 5 GigE jack. That's an impressive amount of LAN throughput. 


Additionally, the mounting bracket allows plenty of space for wires to pass through. The bracket is a grey panel with two screw slots on the back of the main housing. It is simple to set up. Screws and drywall anchors are included in the kit. 


EnGenius provides a two-year manufacturer's guarantee on the access point. If something breaks too soon, you will get a replacement or a refund. However, it will include outside usage because this access point is not weatherproof.
