Summary: Worked really well as an extender. It did the job when few others did. I just wish they had one in Wireless 802.11ac. I ran my extender wirelessly and hid the SSID so the hosts didn't really see different AP's. I used an RT-AC68U and had the AP roaming mode setup to drop at 70 dB.
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 give this 4 stars instead of 5 because the documentation is horrible and misleading. I purchased this product to use as an Access Point and THEN read the reviews on this site. Over the first 3 days I experienced many of the same problems that others have reported here.
Excerpt: This product is a little bit complicated because it's a 3-in-one: Range extender/repeater, Access Point, and Ethernet adapter. Once you get past this and know what you're going to use it for, it's easy to set up and get up and running.
Summary: Works well. I am using it in AP mode to extend my homes wireless network. I have a large house with Ethernet throughout but also want great wireless for things like laptops, tablets and roku devices. Speed and connectivity have been good.
Summary: Update 3: 4/21/2013. After several days using the EA-N66 as a repeater, I can say it's a great product. I am using the EA-N66 to extend the signal to my living room from my office where my router is connected. I am currently using the 2.4 Ghz band.
Summary: I needed a Repeater. In this mode it works very well and setup is easy. The signal was supposed to be stronger in some parts of my house but there is no uncovered area. I haven't tried the other modes yet.
Summary: I am used to Linksys and cisco routers. This was very simple to setup. My house is about 15,000 sq. feet and I could never get a good wireless signal in the basement. Took me 10 min to unpack and setup in the basement as an extension to my current wireless network.
Summary: Now that I have it up and running as a range extender, it definitely does the trick. I have a router on the first floor and we had dropouts and no signal on the third floor. Now, I get full bars even out on the third floor deck, with this little device positioned on the second floor.
