  • Summary: This worked exactly as advertised to fill up a coverage hole in our house (so that my son could put his Wii online!). Setup was quick and easy using my Mac laptop. HOWEVER, note that setup requires that you do some network maneuvering -- you need to change the IP address of your setup computer to be in the subnet of the (fixed) initial address of the Extender so you can talk to it over your browser, configure it with the target SSID and a new (fixed) IP address in the...
