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).
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.

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...
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.

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.
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.
Summary: I did a fair bit of research before selecting this item. The price had me concerned. I'm using the EA-N66 in bridge mode to my main ASUS RT-N66U router. I plugged the EA-N66 into a gigabit switch to give the wired living room PCs net access. I am using the 5GHz band only due to congestion on 2.4GHz.
Pros: Excellent throughput, excellent compatibility with other ASUS products, fairly easy set-up, set it and forget it
Cons: Lack of documentation, only has a quick guide, Price is high
Summary: I purchased this to EXTEND my wifi signal from my Asus RT-N66U Router. While the router does an outstanding job alone, I needed to extend/improve the signal in a distant bedroom. It was simple to setup as an extender. Now I have an excellent wifi signal all over the house and in the back yard.
