Summary: 1st of all ... I am not a wireless rookie here! This product failed to do any repeating of existing wireless networks. Not hard to configure, Just does not function as advertised! Sent mine back for a refund ....
Summary: The EnGenius ERB 9250 Range is Extender was a waste of time and money. I tried several unseccessful attempts to get this range extender to work with my router and after calling their piss poor customer service got nowhere!!!!!!! I even called Comcast who I have my router with and they couldn't help me.
Product Didn't Connect and Horrible Customer Service

Summary: If you have a 2Wire 3800 HGV-B, don't get this extender, because it won't work. After spending hours on the setup, trying to get it to work, I couldn't connect. So, I called customer service, and it was atrocious. I couldn't talk to a person; I was repeatedly connected to someone's voicemail. Ridiculous. Finally, I bought the Netgear extender, and it worked perfectly.
Excerpt: I’ve been through the setup 3 times with successful connection each time and trouble shot per the instruction; STILL does not work. Its LED's indicate that it is working properly, but 10 feet away, the signal strength is no stronger than without it. Wasted almost 3 hours on this. I am Returning it.
Summary: Unless your router has the WPA push-button setup I would not advise getting this product unless you are very computer adept. Apparently it's easy to set up with the WPA push-button setup, but my router didn't have that. To set this up manually you have to follow difficult directions and be familiar with accessing and possibly changing the IP address of the router or the range extender. I quickly decided it was too difficult.
Summary: Bought this device hoping I could extend my 802.11N wireless signal. This device takes the original SSID and propagates it with better power. However, mine was not the case. It seems to me that this range extender scrambles the original signal provided by a Linksys WRT320N and makes it unstable. Makes more noise?, I don't know. Despite the increase in signal bars, the quality of the transmission is not adequate.
