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.

The documentation was not well written or as clear orspecific as it could be. I did get an e-mail reply to a request for support, and I appreciated that.
