Summary: This device would not configure for me. I tried hard wire and wireless. I called tech support and I was connected to a call center in India.

Would not solve my transmission problem and tech support was useless.

Summary: I only give it a two star rating - as it was pretty expensive and does not perform for me as I had hoped.. not as easy to set up as raved about -- spent almost 1.5 hours with tech loses connectivity all the time - no matter what .. it is better than without it .. but pretty disappointed all in all.

Summary: Works as advertised. The radio seems to be really good, and was able to repeat one of our offices wireless networks across a parking lot to the other side plus some where it was needed. The parking lot being a 4 row, with +2 row for entry/exit.
Spotty coverage. Config software over simplified and perhaps unreliable.

Summary: I was replacing the same unit model after a lightning strike took it out. Seems like this thing is behind the times. The facility to locate the device was intermittent through the equipment it was connected to and in my opinion lacked features. Just didn't feel solid.
