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: Despite the description this device is basically useless for a hotel room. Why? Because it allows neither web based authentication (as essentially all hotels use) or mac address cloning (which would let you in many cases trick web based authentication).
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: The previous model worked great, loved it. This model has problems when being used as a WAP. When I connect to it from any device, it will connect and work for about 10 minutes, then I have to recycle the power to the WAP to use it again. Hence, rinse and repeat, it does not work at all.

Summary: First off, I should say, I bought this item via Amazon Primce and received it in perfect condition and really quickly. My low rating is for the product itself, not for the excellent Amazon service. I was looking for a wireless router for travel and came across this device.
Summary: I spent hours trying to make this thing work. I am quite computer-savvy and typically can figure these things out, but I gave up on this one. I could connect to it through the ethernet cable (which supposedly only needs to be done once, and from then on you're supposed to be able to connect...
Summary: The router is very very complicated to set up and doesn't work well with an Ipad, Ipod, PC, or Cell phone. Not sure about a Mac because I dont have one. Dont waste your money. Very frustrated.
Summary: I used this to replace a Trendnet travel router as I could not access that model with either iPhone or iPad. Reviews stated that this router was capable of handling these clients. And it is. However...
Summary: I have an old portable router that works well as a little access point with wired hotel wifi, but was looking for something I could use when a hotel only has paid wifi. From the description this device would do exactly that. The problem is - it doesn't work.
