Several coworkers use the same one and have good luck communicating with various PLC's and HMI's

Summary: I bought this to use on the job because it's small enough to fit in my laptop backpack. Several coworkers use the same one and have good luck communicating with various PLC's and HMI's. Mine seems to connect but I cannot go online with the machines PLC's or HIM's.
Summary: I bought this device to act as a wifi repeater. I live in a 3BR apartment in a 90-year old house... just brick, sheetrock, stone and wood here... and I don't have the best wifi coverage. One of the modes of this device is to be a repeater.
Summary: I have been using this for a week now (I know, quite early for a true review), but so far so good. I have been using it as a wireless repeater because my room is extremely far away from the router at the other corner of the house.
Summary: I read another review stating it extended the Airport Extreme network, it kinda does, but in a weird way. I had set it to repeater mode but the router issued me a 192.168.x.x ip while using the same network ssid (the airport devices extend and keep the 10.0.1.x ip range/ I tried to change the DHCP...
Summary: Configured in client mode to use to provide input to Samsung BR player, dropped signal and had to be reset twice. Next day updated to the latest firmware and has held signal for three day now without issue. Jury is still out, but looking better.
Pros: Low price. Small size if using for travel.
Cons: Range is limited. Firmware as originally delivered dropped signal, multiple times.
Summary: Within the month, I expect to get another device for my network, and I will add a followup specifically dealing with Repeater mode. This device works, and might deserve four eggs, except that there's a better way. Most home routers are now wireless anyway, even the ones provided by ISPs.
Pros: Very small and light. Performance is adequate; a little faster throughput than a USB dongle (~18mb/s down vs. 14.5; 4.75 up vs. 4.5); only a little slower than a PCI wireless card. Similar throughput at ~25' distance from router, and 50' distance. Documentation is fairly detailed, but see Con. Re...
Cons: Where to start...the included cord is only 2' long; I used another. This is not a "beginner" device. The documentation is thorough, but is Engrish, and may not be entirely accurate, especially regarding DHCP. I had to manually configure my PC's IP to initially configure it to "Client" mode, which...
Summary: A strong Access Point Device can change the results dramatically for even a weaker device. I tried a Trendnet N 150Mbps and it was only working at 3Mbps.
Pros: Nice small size for travelling. Tested it with Rosewill adapter RNX-N18oub and speakeasy.net to test download speed. The average download speed was 12Mbps compared to a wired network where the average speed was 44Mbps. However with a new Dell notebook I was able to obtain 41Mbps download speed wi...
Cons: Tested different company dedicated Access Point 300Mbps. The results were an average of 33Mbps compared to 12Mbps of the TP-Link.
Excerpt: I have this set up as a bridge to my wireless-G network. It works great for in-network stuff (streaming video, network transfers, etc), but it seems to choke on internet based transfers (downloads, Youtube, basically any video related streaming).
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Secure Connection, Small
Summary: I'm considering returning them and buying something else. I get so frustrated with cheap WiFi routers that always lock up. Maybe I should steer clear of Atheros chipsets. I purchased a few TP-Link TL-WR702N routers for work (they're similar to this one but even smaller and are USB-powered).
Pros: Small package, integrated AC adapter, decent range for the size.
Cons: They lock up occasionally. I bought two for sectorizing my house. The one used the most locks up at least 1-2 times per week and the other one has locked up at least twice (I don't use that one as much so I wouldn't know for a while if it had locked up).
