Pros: The price seemed appealing but you get what you pay for.
Cons: I went through setup and I have it in repeater mode. On the base wireless network, the internet works fine. But going through the access point (wired or wireless) I can't really connect to the internet with a domain name. If I ping 220.127.116.11 (Google public DNS server) I get an immediate response and it works. If I ping 18.104.22.168 (one of Google's IP addresses) I get an immediate response and it works. But I can't ping google.com or load google.com. Trying to resolve ...
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: Does not work or help my router in anyway. I tried using this as both an Access Point and a Repeater and it did not extend the range of my router in either mode. In Repeat mode it slowed down the connection (which is perhaps to be expected) and was unusable for streaming. I ended up returning it and buying an ASUS AC66U router which gives me 5 bar wireless connections in every room or our house and wireless speeds comparable to those devices connected directly to route...
EXCEPTIONAL!--Cannot get any better, review dated: 9/2014 (see video)

Summary: Length:: 1:32 Mins There are many many reviews and the negative ones are possibly outdated.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.
