Summary: A more thorough setup walkthrough, troubleshooting guide, or FAQ would improve the experience dramatically.
Pros: The device works quite well once set up.
Cons: The setup process is prone to a number of weird snags, and there isn't enough available documentation to troubleshoot effectively. Specifically, the page on which you set up the Wi-Fi connection kept automatically refreshing, making it impossible to enter the network password. I almost returned i...
Summary: I would not buy this again if it broke. The lack of higher band frequencies and customization leaves me wanting more. If anyone of my less-than-techy-friends says they need an extender I will likely give them this and buy myself a better one.
Pros: Super easy to setup! I would absolutely order one of these for my mother in another state. I could talk her through setting it up over the phone; it's that easy. And the signal really is improved.
Cons: 1. CREATES A NEW NETWORK!! IT DOESN'T JUST EXTEND YOUR EXISTING ONE. 2. Only works on the low band of wireless networks. I have a dual band router and I am not able to see nor select the higher band signals. 3. There is ABSOLUTELY no room for customization. You can't name the new network, it defa...
Summary: This is inexpensive and has acceptable performance, but watch out for degradation with long-term use.
Pros: Initially it worked as advertised. Speeds were relatively good, and it did a good job of extending my network.
Cons: After a few weeks of use, it became flaky. Either its wifi would drop or it would drop its connection to the main router (other devices can connect fine during this time, so it's not the router). Resetting the device fixes the issue, but the need to reset has become more frequent with time, and n...
All good but it was tricky to set up in an advanced network.

Summary: It is primitively designed for SOHO use and it's cost is low. Set up page needs to be improved for more configuration options.
Pros: For common home network, it is simple and east to set up. Just follow the instructions and you should have it up in few minutes. It works on both 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrums and Airplay works perfectly fine.
Cons: If you have advanced wireless network, then you need to make sure that multicast is enabled and functioning for Airplay. Also, you need to ensure your wireless router does accept and respond arp request from passive client (this wireless bridge). If not, device connected to the bridge will not ge...
Pros: Allows wifi in areas of home beyond reach of linksys router. Easy to connect.
Cons: Problem is that wifi extender is a different wifi network address than the main router. This means to use it, I need to connect to it each time I find myself out of range. I had expected my existing wifi will be boosted in those areas which is not the case. Ended up buying a stronger router.
