Summary: I received the item in good time but upon receiving the item i found that it was defective. I was very dissatified with the fact that I had to pay $11.91 to return it to Belkin for a replacement.The item was supposed to be brand new when I received it.
Summary: This range extender works as advertised! I am very happy with the purchase. I was a little worried after reading some of the horror stories here, but I have to say, Chovy's review instructions (on this site) were just this ticket to get the repeater up and running in less than 30 minutes.
Summary: Forget the instructions that came with the product.....useless, and does not automaticaly find your existing network. However if you use the detailed instructions listed on the site from the previous reviews, works like a charm.
Summary: I bought this product mainly to expand my wifi. It works really well if and only if you set it up through the web management. Dont use the Auto connect button. Within the web management, you can have it list all the wifi signal and you can choose one to connect to.
Summary: Works reasonably well. The range extension is not huge, but it is noticeable. Downside is that if the mother wireless modem for some reason (loss of power, for example) stops broadcasting, the range extender does not automatically pick it up again when the mother resumes sending.
Non-Intuitive setup but definitely works like advertised

Summary: A few people have complained about the difficult setup and how the Auto-Configure doesn't work. The Aut-Configure might not be the best option for most people and the advanced setup requires you to connect your computer to the device using the supplied Ethernet cable.
If you are at all copmuter savy, then a 5 star item

Summary: This thing works awesome, the only reason its not a five star item is that the setup "CAN" be difficult. The device has an auto setup but, if you want to ensure its your network that its connected to or if you need to set the repeater up to connect to your secure network then you need to connect to...
The Extender Does Work as Expected---With Some Work

Summary: I bought and connected the device July 1. I will admit that Chovy's review and detailed instructions did go a lonnng way to helping to get the device up and running. I do recommend using his review (actually: instructions) as the basis for getting the device working.
WAS having a terrible setup experience.....then.....

Summary: I have a WPA secured network and was just having a terrible time trying to get this thing set up. But, then I read the review by Leo Piyush. I followed his instructions to the letter and in a few minutes I was up and running. Now, instead of only having a 50% signal on my PS3, I have 100%.
