Oh Yeah!

Gene L., Newegg
12 February 2014
  • Pros: Was having trouble with the comcast cable router connecting more than 4 wireless devices. Comcast said they do have problems around the 5 device connections. I asked some questions here and got the right answers. I ordered this and totally expanded my device connections. I'm at 8 wireless devices and still no problems.

Great AP

Robert, Newegg

  • Pros: I decided to pick this up when I wanted to use my Ooma wireless. Instead of using their product which would be 55 I figured this would be much more versatile and cheaper. I first connected this to my laptop and set up the devise to work on my wifi network and now I can place my phone anywhere in my apartment. I also thought it was great there there was an on/off switch on this as well.

More connections

Gene L., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Pros: Bought this to increase the amount of wireless points in the house. The Comcast router starts to die at around 5. I have at least 9 wireless devices in the house. This promised to help and it did. From the time I opened the box, it took a total of 10 minutes to be fully operational. Changed the DHCP to disable, changed the name and PW, restarted it and it was done. I'm at 5 devices and counting. Thanks!
  • Cons: None at this time.

Huge difference!

  • Pros: I bought this to be used as a repeater at first due to the poor signal from my fios router. However, as i realized that I could use this as the access point itself, I did just that.

  • Pros: Nice Features
  • Cons: Isn't stable. Have to restart once every 2 days. Self-monitoring reboot on ping fail doesn't work/doesn't do the job.

Have to restart sometimes

Robert P., Newegg
22 June 2012
  • Pros: Works well when it is online. Has a good range and signal.
  • Cons: About every 3-4 days of being online, it doesn't allow any connections. Shows up on my wireless devices as being 'disabled'. Restarting the device lets it run for another 3-4 days.

Worked great---for a while

Aaron H., Newegg

  • Summary: I don't know why everyone complains about the setup being difficult. If you've ever set up a wireless access point, this one is not much different. It won't enter the information in automatically for you, but otherwise, the setup wasn't a problem at all. Follow the directions--that's what they're there for.
  • Pros: Great device [for the price]--just remember, you get what you pay for. The device is very small in size, and the range is better than expected. PoE works like a million bucks, and saves more cables draping up the wall.
  • Cons: After having the device for about 8 months, it started 'hanging up'. The activity light would flicker to the point where it was almost steady 'on', and no activity would be allowed. The connection would drop, and require a power cycling to get it to come back on. Firmware update wasn't necessary, and there really isn't anything else you could do. Lock-ups are random, and can be during heavy use, or while very idle. Only connecting two laptops, a Wii console and two sm...

No WPA in Bridge Mode

Clifford S., Newegg
12 January 2011
  • Summary: WPA works fine in "Client" and "AP" modes, but but is not available for "Bridge with AP" mode. Consider this limitation when integrating this item into your network.
  • Pros: Easy setup and works great.
  • Cons: The WPA-PSK/WPA2/PSK encryption is not available in "Bridge with AP" mode as stated in the user manual.
