Great for a while...then

Armon N., Newegg
12 July 2015
  • Summary: I can see why Newegg doesn't really sell these anymore, you have to find it in the Marketplace. I wouldn't say this model is junk per se, just that it doesn't really seem to last. $50 for a year's worth is all that Edimax can afford for you to though without giving them more money.
  • Pros: Works well. Relatively easy to set up. Good price.
  • Cons: Lasted a little over a year. 13 months to be exact.

Dead

Wayne W., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • Pros: None, besides it lasted 1 week.
  • Cons: This thing worked "OK" for about a week. Then the lights went red. I've factory reset this 3 times, and ran through the setup each time. It sees the Router at 100% (because I have it literally inches away), but after it restarts the first time it is just DEAD. Red light on the front never turns b...

Worthless

Sarah B., Newegg
25 August 2014
  • Summary: Tell you what, if you want one you can have mine. Currently it is in 6 pieces after being thrown against the ground. Honestly, that was the best use I got out of it.
  • Pros: It was easy to setup.
  • Cons: The device is useless, utterly useless. It worked well for about a week and then nothing but constant issues. It was placed in an area that had great signal and would show that it was transmitting without issue. However, 75% of the time it would stop broadcasting its SSID and I could not maintain...

Follow up to "don't bother"

Dariusz R., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Summary: Follow up to manufacturer response. I wish distance was the case here. When setting up, edimax was within 5 feet from my wireless router, so distance is definitely not the problem here. The device just didn't work as expected fro me.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: see original review
