Summary: I have several wireless "holes" in my house due to ... whatever causes them (construction, metal in the ceiling & walls ... gremlins ... who knows, but they are there). This solved that problem, especially where I couldn't run additional cabling and set up a 2nd router as another access point.
Summary: I was a bit concerned about setting up the EnGenius ERB9250 as I'm now on my 2nd Wi-Fi extender -- the first (a NetGear WN2000RPT) was a bear to set-up and then never ran correctly. It would extend my Wi-Fi signal and then suddenly lose it -- I'd have to power cycle the unit nearly once a day!).
Summary: Bought this early December and have been using this product a little over 2 months. --The Setup-- Personally I do not think the 'initial' setup for this wireless extender was difficult at all. (I am a bit biased though as I have no problems setting up routers.

Great device, manual setup mode could use improvement
22 January 2011
Summary: Great practical device. Nice for enabling ethernet printers & other hardwired devices to be wireless. I also like that I can later add a network switch to allow multiple devices to be chained off the single port in the back of the wireless repeater.
Summary: Overall very good. Because of inferior directions, somewhat difficult to set up. After getting it setup, it works very good. Resets well after it is powered down. My computer has lost connection a couple of times, but reconnects with restart. Extended internet service is excellent.
Summary: I had previously tried to use the Hawking n-range extender. It took me a long while to set it up, the next day it dropped out of the network and I could not get it to work again. I had an IT support person try to figure it out and he couldn't do it.
