Summary: This is a very simple device. Nothing to configure so one cannot mess it up. I was hoping to configure myself as I do Wi-Fi networking for a part-time living. There is nothing to do but read the bottom of the device... with reading glasses as a B looked to me like an 8. Once I put the readers on, voila, hooked up. Great pass through speed. Comes with short cables with the exception of the power supply.
Summary: I have had Zyxel before. It is usually good. I was disappointed in this product for the great difficulty of setting up the Access Point feature of this Travel Router. Really? Not only are the online instructions so poorly written that this computer teacher was confused by the details, my Electronic Technician friend was baffled by it. (He used his own method.) Totally worthless as an Access Point for me.
Summary: Very disappointed in Walmart. Purchased this item on 8/26. The website listed a "site to store" delivery date "as early as 9/1". I needed to purchase this to do some travel. Well, after purchasing the item on the website, I receive an e-mail stating that the delivery date to the store was going to be 9/11. I still haven't gotten an answer from Walmart as to how the date goes from 9/1 to 9/11. I'm not sure how a product can take 16 days to deliver in this day and age.
Summary: I have had one of these for maybe 1.5 to 2 years? Taken it all over the world, hooked it into a hundred different hotel wired outlets and its always just WORKED. Not even noticeable in my backpack. zero space required and weighs NOTHING.. :-) lol.. Not sure what the other reviewer was complaining about by "hooked it to my PC".. HOW exactly would you do that? and if you did, did you use a crossover cable?
Summary: I bought this simple item for my father who uses an old dsl modem that does not do wireless. Technically, he does not need that upgrade since his old style desktop computer gets on well with that old style modem through ethernet connection. But whenever we visit him, we can not use our tablets and smart phones. So that was an investment for myself.
How to use as a WiFi Client ("Bridge") for connecting wired devices to your WiFi network
29 June 2014
Summary: I bought this to use for connecting a Tivo and BlueRay player in the living room to my WiFi network. both devices have only have LAN ethernet ports. This was cheaper than buying a Tivo USB adapter. I found the instructions for setting it up in another review. I am copying them in here so you don't have to search for them: 1. Flip the switch on the side of the router to "AP" 2. Assign your PC a STATIC IP of 192.168.100.10, this is critical for it to work 3.
Summary: I use this as an access point when I either don't have a WiFi connection or when I have weak WiFi connection, it works really great I was able to connect all my devices without any hassle I managed to download/upload at 5MB/s without any issue.
Summary: The box works but I'm having a hard time setting it up for my DSL connection. I get to the point where I configure it with the user name and password ( which I have) and it will do nothing more after that. Reset and start over is the only thing to do. I emailed customer support and I have not heard anything back. For something supposed to be mobile and easy to use its a waste of money and time.
