Summary: Signal strength is improved and positioning relative to router may need to be further explored, but strength improvement has not been as significant as I had hoped. I bought this used; no instructions accompanied the device for set up.
Summary: It seems to help with my range issues, but didn't get rid of them. My house is not THAT big (3700 square feet), but maybe on the bigger side. We have had wi-fi issue forever. A few years ago I bought the Linksys EA3500 router, which I was told should be fine for my needs.
Summary: I had a VERY difficult time figuring out from the documentation as to HOW to set this up. I followed the included instructions three times and still couldn't figure out if I had set the device up correctly.
Pros: Unobtrusive Choice in power connections (direct prongs or a cable) Almost no settings to get wrong LED indicator is demure and simple (constant blinking = something's wrong) Devices can't distinguish from standard AP/Router
Cons: Minimal documentation (even on included media) Inability to select more than the Network to join No access to device after successful configuration Ethernet Port not needed (since device has a wireless setup port) Not powered to 1,000mw (maximum for a commercial wireless device)
Summary: I bought this to fill some dead spots in the wireless at church. The first time I went to connect to the router, I was about 40 feet away and it would not connect. When I scanned for wireless, it could not find the router.
Pros: Easy setup - WPS Web interface to tweak settings
Cons: Limited range. If I moved it more than 20 feet from router, performance degraded. If I moved it more than 30 feet from the router, it would not keep a connection to the router. Broadcast range is decent, I can connect at over 50 feet away.
