Cons: It has an un-fixable backdoor vulnerability that allows the attacker to gain access even without a key or password. I've been hacked twice now in a week. The attacker disabled my WPA2 key both times. So the only safe thing I can do is remove it from my network. Wish I hadn't purchased it. I have ...
Summary: The documentation is pretty abysmal for setting it up as a bridge. It would crash our network if I connected it directly to the network while in bridge mode. I had to set it to AP mode, update the firmware, reboot, configure, reboot, and then configure it as a bridge from a PC that was connected...
Pros: Once it's up and working, it's reliable and painless.
Cons: Look online for instructions for getting it set up as a bridge. The documentation has huge gaps in it.
Cons: Very difficult to work with, less than 1/2 of my devices can attach to it, it stops working after three active devices and needs to be factory reset. Newegg wants you to ship it back for $12 - 1/5th the price of it; many minutes of ridiculous phone menus for support.
Summary: It is easy to setup and use ( I didn't have problems with the web interface), but the switch does not handle large data transfers between devices as Gigabit speeds. I had lots of dropped packets until I purchased a separate Netgear switch to plug into the wireless bridge.
Summary: But be clear, you need to disable to 20/40MHz options otherwise everything suffers. You can only run one range at a time (2.4Ghz vs 5 Ghz). Finally it has no place to attach an external antenna.
Summary: It's functional, and easy to set up a wireless bridge if you have 2 of these. With the latest firmware I haven't had any bridge-failures in a while. But the documentation is misleading, suggesting 2.4/5GHz can be used at the same time (notice the little 'both' button on the screenshots) This is NOT...
Summary: Installation should not have been difficult. I've installed many routers/APs before. Instructions seemed straighforward: connect to computer, plug it in, type in IP address, follow instructions on web-based window. Except that the web-based window never appeared. Lights came on the AP as expected.
Pros: Great range at 2.4/5 GHz Works well with D-Link 655 router Guest zone is a great feature Great price
