Summary: I would not recommend this unit. I have been doing professional enterprise wireless for over 10 years. The bridge feature is poor. If the unit was within 5 feet of the base wireless it would work. As I move away from the base unit the signal strength fell drastically to the point it was not usable. I substituted the unit with an old Linksys with DDWRT firmware which worked at over 100 feet away (cost 2 dollars at a garage sale) till I could buy a different outdoor unit.
Summary: Easy install and setup. Works as advertised. Set this up in a camp ground and the signal strength really covered as expected. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to cover a large outside area.
Summary: After 90 minutes on the phone with someone from India that I could not understand very well I ended up with an expensive paperweight. After reading many of the other reviews I decided to have a 'professional' walk me through the install. Using multiple computers and repeating the configuration a dozen times it never worked. It slowed my Internet connection down. After the second failure I should have had an advanced technician take over the call. I WOULD NOT BUY THIS!!!!
Summary: Have had no problems with this repeater! Very easy to set up and install. I own an RV park and this did the job for those RV'ers furthest away from the antenna. I read the reviews before i bought it and was concerned about the setup, allot of people saying they were on the phone with tech support for hours. I did not experience this at all. Followed the directions supplied with the unit and it saw the network, joined and has been perfect ever since.
Worked as advertised. Range was good and setup was a breeze.

Summary: I was a little concerned after reading a couple of reviews about difficulty in the set up but it was pretty easy. The range of the Wi Fi was great. I've had it set up for a couple of months and it continues to work fine.
Summary: To be honest, I'm not the one you want to review. It's claim of 300' coverage is just not do. After two weeks of installation, it quit. I had to order a second one and send it in for a credit back to my account. Amazon has been amazing, hawking tech were not very helpful with thier own product. So, day two of the second piece of equipment. Time will tell.
