Summary: Using this device, I had my Chromecast working on hotel wifi within 15 minutes. Once you bypass the hotel login or splash screen with a web browser, any device on your private wifi network can freely use the Internet. This is a good little networking multi-tool for power users.
Summary: Like several other reviewers have mentioned, the firmware for this gadget is absolutely abysmal. I bought this recently since I wanted the WiFi Repeater function to help extend the WiFi connection in my house. What should have been a quick and simple set-up wound up being 2 hours of utter fail.
Summary: This did what it said, but I tried to use it for a VOIP phone set and that was not successful. It would work for a few hours, then disconnect the phone. The phone required wired Ethernet, but all I had in that location was strong wi-fi.
Summary: This product worked great. I don't use it much anymore, but I used it for years at hotels where I would connect this device to the hotel's wifi, then this device would broadcast another wifi network that my phone and laptop would connect to.

Summary: As a frequent traveler I use this mini-router in hotels and on planes. Some hotels require login pages to access wifi, which is fine for PC, but sometimes phones, tablets, and gaming devices cannot reach the hotel's login page.
Tried to get this to work as an Ethernet Adapter. Never got it working.

Summary: Was trying to get this to work on 802.11 G network. It never worked. A 30 minute call with tech support did not help. Tech support said they would research the problem and call back in 1 to 1.5 hours. They never called back.
Summary: I've been buying these for years. The models changed a little overtime but they're really good for my needs. In our production facility we print bar codes for cases and pallets and the wireless network card for those printers each costs almost $200.
Summary: I bought this for several intended uses. 1. As a range extender for my ASUS NT900 Router which is necessarily at one end of my 2400 sq ft home. My bedroom is at the furthest end of the house, and when I'm in bed, any of my devices are at the furthest distance from the main router.
Summary: You have to initially set it up with an ethernet cable, connecting to 192.168.1.1. You should not need to install any of the included software, but you will want to disable your wireless interface. If the software is easier for you, use it.
