Summary: This solve my weak wifi, since the router was to far away from my smart TV to watch movies on Netflix, now I don't have a problem. This is the more simple and cheap way to get a remote (WiFi) signal inside your house, no matter how far your router is.
Summary: Length:: 1:25 Mins I bought this and needed it to operate some "non wireless" printers. There are 3 ways you can set this up---one as a "bridge"--, a repeater, and as an access point. We are using it as a bridge, that being to bridge wirelessly from router, to edimax, then we plug in the network cables to edimax. Its just as if we plugged them into the router, but in many cases that is impossible or very impractical.

Summary: Length:: 1:32 Mins There are many many reviews and the negative ones are possibly outdated. The video is to show you what it looks like, its size, and features, not an in depth review, that you will find here. Its just a fact that you will (from time to time) have DOA electronics, whether it be the very expensive, or inexpensive, so reviews for DOA can be overlooked. (unless there is a large # trending --showing a problem).
EdiMax has good customer support and they stand behind their product

Summary: I was able to extend the wireless signal close to 300 yards using the +9dBi booster antenna, as suggested by their support. EdiMax has good customer support and they stand behind their product, no matter if it's a low or high end product. The reason I say so is because one of my power adapter on the EW-7228APn failed due to a power surge. I sent them an e-mail asking where I can get a new adapter.
You might be better off replacing your router for a better signal. This thing is aggravating to use.

Summary: The product definitely got the wireless signal to where I needed it. However for some reason, when I used it I got a very intermittent internet connection, losing internet 3 to 4 times a day, even when it showed a strong wireless signal. Edimax customer service is good in that they tried their best to get the problem solved. It wasn't solved, but they tried. I eventually had to replace my router to get a stronger signal.
Summary: I bought this to extend my WiFi network into a room where the original signal simply can't reach. I bought this along with an external antenna and an extension external cable. I ran the extension cable down my hallway and the external antenna at that end, placing the switch itself into the problem room. With the cable some 20 feet away I was able to bring the switch ports into the problem room and connect up my Ethernet hardware in that room.
Summary: Once set up, this product works incredibly well and has a very respectable range. If it wasn't for the annoying "wrong password" bug and the confusing to follow numerical flow of the install guide, I would definitely give it 5 stars. Here is how I finally remedied the "wrong password or user id" issue when simply turning off the wireless didn't do the trick: What you need to do is exactly this...
Summary: Yes this unit works. I does in fact extend the range of a wireless network. The power of the unit, along with the included antenna, is reasonable. If I use may MacBook at a certain location, and do a speed test, the extender is able to achieve the same speeds. The speeds are not faster, thereby: the signal is not stronger than what my Mac can achieve at the same location. however, that is where the range extender comes in handy.
Summary: Bought this product and was overall pleased with the signal it received. The only drawback I found was it was especially temperamental during inclement weather. A good purchase in general, but the one issue is the only reason I gave it one less star.
