Summary: Good little device. I am using it to extend a Netgear Pro-G 8 port router and the EW-7438w gives a stronger signal even though farther away! It is very easy to use; I'd recommend using the included cable initially, even though it can be configured wirelessly.
Summary: Was a little hesitant to buy after reading comments about firmware updates and loss of performance. However, I had no such issues. This device is smaller than you might think - about the size of a large AC/DC power adapter. Was able to easily move it from outle to outlet to find the optimum balance between connection of devices to it versus its connection speed to the router. If you place this device too far from your router then you will lose some connection speed.
Pros: Fast easy setup. Easier than I thought. 5 minutes or less. Works flawlessly. No loss of performance (checked multiple times at speedtest.net). No firmware update required. For those of you worried about WPS security, you can turn it off. With WPS off, you will be using the security protocol of your existing router. Easy to follow instructions. If you can't set this device up then you probably also have difficulty figuring out which end of power cords plug into wall so...
Summary: The firmware update is on Edimax web site. Download and save to spot you know, open Edimax ADMIN page per the book, update the firmware thru ADMIN page, look for saved update firmware you saved and update. It takes a bit of time to update, looks like it hangs up. I waited a few min, then unplug everything, wait and plug back in.
Pros: Works real well. You can setup the range extender WITHOUT going into your router controls if need be. We share a wifi at a cottage, didn't want to play with the router and didn't have to with this. You setup range extender thru ethernet cable and Edimax ADMIN page. Has good step by step in book thats in the box
Cons: Came with a pink add on tag outside the box saying it needs a firmware update, with web add. You go to the Edimax web site, find update, download, wont open. How to page at Edimax was down and wont open, had to find a Edimax "how to update" pdf from a non us site. Not hard to do the update at all, just hard to find "how to" do it
Excerpt: купил так как была проблема с сигналом на втором этаже дома,роутер установлен внизу, долбить стены после ремонта было не охота вообще,жить без нета на втором этаже тоже.Купил всунул в розетку и ура,все полетело.Покупал за 1400 руб.
Summary: daar waar ik vroeger een wi-fi signaal had dat regelmatig weg viel of zelfs helemaal geen signaal kreeg, kan ik nu zeer vlot surfen en heb een uitstekend wi-fi signaal, het toestel is echt plug en play.
