Summary: I have a wireless router upstairs and have the EW-7438 downstairs configured as an access point. The range is very good and have not had any dropped connections. Works great for the money. Wish it was a gigabit devise. The setup software is a bit limiting.
Pros: Good value. Can be configured as an extender, access point or bridge. Works great so far.
Cons: Only 10/100. The Edimax setup software does not have an option for ONLY the DNS to be obtained automatically. It is bundled with IP and Gateway so either IP and DNS is automatic or static. This is a short coming with the Edimax setup software as other access point brands allow only the DNS to be ...
Pros: Very inexpensive, small size, easy setup. Worked as advertised.
Cons: Web interface isn't incredibly customizable, but it does everything I needed it to. Once you set the thing up in extender or bridge mode (can't speak to AP...) the config is locked and needs a "factory reset" (which is as easy as pressing a button) to be able to set things up. Not really a con, b...
Summary: Love the fact that its independent. Simply select any AP you want and your done. I have my chrome cast connected full time without any issues. Streams 1080p from Netflix without a problem. Cant beat it. The is a Joeteck approved product!
Pros: Always works. Had it for more than a year.. I purchased 2 of them. Bedroom and living room. Feeds off of the main buffalo AP.
Pros: This EDIMAX Mini Took about 15 minutes to setup and works great. I tested 2 ways. 1) I made a wi-fi phone call using T-Mobile's wi-fi calling feature on my cell phone. I walked all over the house checking to see if the signal would drop or beep, indicating a weak signal. Passed that test with fly...
Cons: Not really anything. Just to check to see the longevity of this little guy.
Summary: Strategically placed this brought my 2.4ghz SSID from -90dBm on my back patio all the way up to -60. Substantial improvement, especially for the price. Literally took 5 minutes to set up. Going to grab another as a wifi bridge for a tivo mini and put it to the test. Will review later.
Summary: Read the instructions carefully on how to set it up and if you have any issues call the 800 # on the yellow card, the techs are VERY helpful. Bought two of these and they completely fixed the dead zones in my house! Before: 0-3 bars in 75% of the house. After: 5 bars everywhere in house!
