Summary: I bought this product after some serious searching. I was going to China for 1 month and would be living in hotels most of the time. Most China hotels will provide ethernet internet for free, but make guest pay for wireless internet access. I did not want to pay crazy amounts of money, so I sought a different solution - a mobile hotspot, router, access point, whatever you want to call it. It worked great too.
Summary: The product itself is well made however I believe it was more meant for sitting in the middle of a table and sharing the internet connection amongst the people in the immediate area. I tried to use this to extend my wireless range in my house and was dissapointed. I could only get a good signal within about 20-25 feed of the unit.
Summary: Reading the reveiws wasn't sure if this would work. I wanted to extend the range of my wifi out to the garage, where I sit to smoke the occasional cigar, while reading or surfing on my ipad. The wifi siganl was so poor that i'd usually give up and just read my book. Setting this up as a repeater seemed straightforward and i got it connected in no time, but the default is to have no security (open setting).
Summary: Pros: This is an excellent product that is perfect for the traveller. If you have multiple wireless devices it's great for connecting into a hotel network cable LAN to offer your own personal wifi. Even better is that all connected devices look like one devices outside of the wifi so it means you only need to pay once for a device at a hotel.
Summary: I'm not a super techie by any means but I get by & figure things out pretty well. I'm often called to help my non-techie family & friends when they have problems. This is a good wireless router (among it's other features) for home and travel. It's a shame the enclosed instructions are so unhelpful and misleading. I'm writing these instructions, as the process is pretty straight forward, although you'd never know that from the enclosed manufacturers instructions.
Summary: I ordered 3 from 2 seperate sources and each of them were less than useless!!No matter whatever configuraton I atempted, I could never get either connected as adaptors or repeaters. SEVERAL hours on the phone with technical support accomplished absolutly nothing and I came away with the impresion that they considered it all my fault, despite that they were unable to get them to work, no matter what they attempted.
Fantastic Product - Exactly what I was looking for

Summary: I owned a Linksys WTR54GS travel router for several years. My use of that router was spotty: sometimes it worked just fine; other times I would spend an hour or two cursing at the router before giving up. I am a computer-saavy software professional, so I am 100% certain my frustrations were not due to user error. That Linksys router finally died on a recent business trip, so I purchased this ASUS travel router. I could not be more pleased.
