Works for the cost of money, time, and patience

  • 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.) All that I needed to do was to plug in my laptop to the wireless extender with the small Ethernet cable it came with and popped in the CD it also came with.

Works, but signal power is somewhat weak

  • 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. That is the beauty of the wireless repeater --- no cables needed.

Wired the Whole House

  • Summary: I purchased this product to bridge the connectivity between my modem and our second floor rooms and den located at the front of our home. After reading previous reviews I thought that set-up would be difficult but having followed the directions for set-up utilizing the CD-ROM I found that the process was extremely easy. I put the disk in one of our laptops and pressed the required button on my modem and the range extender communicated with the modem and I was done.

Great purchase.... once you get past set-up.

  • 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!).

Great device, manual setup mode could use improvement

  • 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. Note on setup: My router didn't have WPS, so I needed to do the manual setup. After getting out a magnifying glass the setup instructions were fine.

Does What It's Supposed To Do

  • Excerpt: I researched the EnGenius ERB-9250 Wireless Range Extender on a couple of sites with extensive reviews offering both technical and installation considerations. For its cost and advertised capabilities, I decided it would solve my problem: provide a wireless signal to theTV room in the far end of a one-story ranch house, where the router is located at the opposite end of the long house. It works, although my D-Link DIR-635 router "does not support WPS.
  • Pros: Value for Money, Features, Quiet, Easy to Use, Design, Performance
  • Cons: may challenge if non-wps router
