Our Review

Luxul XAP-1610 Apex Wave 2 AC3100 Dual-Band Access Point Review

The Luxul XAP-1610 is a powerful addition to the realm of home theater and smart home systems, promising to deliver high-speed, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity essential for the modern, connected home. As more devices from smart TVs to gaming consoles demand robust internet connections, the role of a capable access point cannot be overstated.

Design and Build Quality

The Luxul XAP-1610 sports a sleek, square design that is both modern and discreet, allowing it to blend seamlessly into a variety of indoor environments. Its solid construction suggests longevity, and the inclusion of mounting hardware offers flexibility in installation locations, which can be crucial when optimizing Wi-Fi coverage.

Physical Layout

The unit is equipped with two gigabit Ethernet ports, providing high-speed wired connectivity options. The four dual-band antennas are internal, which contributes to the device's streamlined look while also protecting the components from damage.

Installation Process

The XAP-1610's installation is made user-friendly by the inclusion of Power over Ethernet (PoE), which reduces cable clutter by allowing both power and data to be transmitted over a single network cable. The included PoE injector is a welcome addition, eliminating the need for a separate PoE switch.


The XAP-1610 is packed with features designed to provide a superior wireless experience. Its compatibility with Luxul Roam Assist™ Wireless Controllers is a highlight for those invested in the Luxul ecosystem, enabling advanced features like seamless roaming and simplified network management.

Wireless Technology and Standards

Utilizing the latest 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, the XAP-1610 supports concurrent dual-band wireless AC, which can significantly reduce interference and congestion. The inclusion of MU-MIMO technology is a boon for environments with multiple simultaneous users, allowing the access point to communicate with multiple devices at once without sacrificing speed.

Network Management and Security

The XAP-1610's support for VLANs allows users to create multiple networks for various purposes, such as a secure guest network. The ability to configure up to eight SSIDs provides the flexibility needed for complex network setups. Remote monitoring and management are made possible through Luxul's ProWatch software, ensuring that network administrators can maintain control even when off-site.


The XAP-1610 promises impressive wireless speeds, with up to 1 Gbps on the 2.4GHz band and 2.167 Gbps on the 5GHz band. In real-world usage, these speeds translate to smooth streaming for media, responsive gaming sessions, and efficient handling of high-traffic scenarios.

Beamforming Technology

Beamforming technology focuses the Wi-Fi signal towards connected devices rather than broadcasting it in all directions. This results in improved signal strength and coverage, which is particularly beneficial for larger homes or spaces with multiple walls and floors.

Multi-Device Handling

In a household or office where numerous devices require access to Wi-Fi, the XAP-1610's MU-MIMO capabilities ensure that multiple devices can operate at high efficiency. This is critical for maintaining a seamless experience when streaming 4K content, engaging in online gaming, or conducting video conferences.

User Experience

Setting up the XAP-1610 is relatively straightforward, thanks to its intuitive web interface. However, integration with existing networks may require some technical know-how, particularly when configuring advanced features like VLANs and Roam Assist.

Compatibility Issues

While the device is designed to work seamlessly with most ISPs, there have been isolated incidents of compatibility issues, notably with Xfinity. Additionally, the lack of support for wireless bridging might limit its use in scenarios where extending an existing wireless network is necessary.

Pros and Cons Recap

The XAP-1610 shines with its high data transfer rates, enhanced coverage through beamforming, and robust support for multiple high-bandwidth applications. Its integration with Luxul's wireless controller ecosystem and remote management capabilities add significant value for network administrators. However, its reliance on a Luxul wireless controller for full functionality and some limitations regarding wireless bridging and compatibility with certain ISPs may detract from its appeal for some users.

Final Thoughts

The Luxul XAP-1610 is a strong contender in the access point market, offering a suite of features that cater to demanding home and small office environments. Its performance, particularly in high-density settings, positions it as a suitable candidate for users who prioritize a stable and fast Wi-Fi connection. While some may find the requirement for a Luxul controller and the indoor-only limitation restrictive, for those seeking a reliable and high-performing Wi-Fi solution that can be remotely managed, the XAP-1610 is certainly worth considering.
