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.

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...
Summary: Extender works with my computers, my iPad mini, WP8, and Android tab, but not my Samsung Smart TV(WIFI) nor any of my Blu-Ray players WIFI connections. The devices will connect to the network but not to the internet through the extender.
