Excerpt: Plugged it in and I had it working in 3 minutes - it seemed to know what I wanted to do - use it as a Bridge and link it to a switch for multiple connections In comparison with configuring a router this was a breeze
Summary: I have an ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router in my office (upstairs far left of the house) and I was having occasional issues with a weak signal in my family room (downstairs far right and about 95' away). I placed the ASUS (EA-N66) in the downstairs wiring closet (about 70' away from router and 25' from apple TV, Roku, Smart Samsung TV, etc) and I've got great signal now.
Great repeater but only if you give it a different SSID!

Summary: I totally agree with Michael McCormack and want to thank him for his review. I was a little concerned about purchasing this product after the large number of mixed reviews. But I decided to go ahead and try it as I already owned an ASUS AC Wireless Router. I wanted to use the EA-N66 as a repeater in my basement to boost the wireless connection on a Roku box and several laptops.
Needs two power cycles to work as an AP if all networking equipment are turned on at the same time

Summary: I bought the EA-N66 to use as a wireless Access Point (AP). As an AP it works except for one very annoying problem described below. After installing the latest "k" firmware from Asus' support site, there remains one problem with the EA-N66 that does not exist with an older AP (an 802.11G Linksys WRT54G with the router function disabled; it still works and is my backup AP albeit at a slower wireless speed).
Summary: Oh, boy... The reason I got this was my previous wireless adapter (TRENDNET TEW-684UB) was USB-based. It was working fine, until I started wanting to perform scheduled backup/restore operations to/from my NAS using Macrium Reflect and its WinPE-based recovery solution. The problem was I couldn't get the drivers for the USB wireless adapter to work in the WinPE environment. Frustrated, I decided to find an *Ethernet* wireless adapter.
It's nice not to have my wife scream because Netflix stopped ...

Summary: Yes, there's a learning curve with these; but they outperform everything else hands down in all three modes. I have a 5000 sq. ft., five bedroom house, and I use two of these to make sure that, for the first time ever after trying countless products, I have a strong signal in every room.

Summary: Litterally changed everything for the better. I am fortunate enough to have found a rather spread out home in the country that I can afford. I was not, however, fortunate enough to get good internet service, in fact it's DSL and it's just awful. I added this "repeater" to my "let's try this to see if we can get the signal to spread throughout the house" and it worked. I mean I really worked.
Summary: move on dont buy.......Get Ubiquiti Networks, out of the 16 or so i have purchased for several homes almost all have failed at some point or another and I've had to send them back or get a refund from amazon or a local retailer that sold them to me. They need resetting or they go back to factory default on there own at least several times a month, you could be several feet away and your going to lose wifi because they choose not to work at that moment .
