Summary: When you plug this extender into an Ethernet socket you have to go to www.asusrouter.com (it has a built in web server) to change your password. Things went south immediately at this point as once I changed it I could never log back in. I reset it several times with no luck.
Summary: I purchased two of these. Each for a specific purpose. First was a EA-N66R (per the GUI) that I setup to extend my existing network to my TiVo Roamio Plus. A connection to the Internet is required to access the channel guide.

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.
