  • Summary: So far so good! Better and faster to set up as an access point then most of the reviews I read. Price was right and unit reset to factory default settings with no problems!

Cheap WiFi

Raymond S., Newegg
16 November 2010
  • Pros: Works great. Got it for my brother to use for getting his Xbox 360 online. Used it because there was no way to run a wire without it becoming a huge project.
  • Cons: Not a wireless router :P

Got it working

Ryan T., Newegg
28 October 2010
  • Summary: THIS DEVICE IS NOT A ROUTER. It isn't designed to be plugged into your computer and assign it an IP address. It is initially set with a static IP address. The software that comes with it didn't work.
  • Pros: Installed DD-WRT and it gets excellent signal
  • Cons: configuring it was a little tricky

Great WAP, bad repeater

Christopher E., Newegg
31 July 2010
  • Summary: Didn't try the bridge option. You can possibly load dd-WRT on this too. That might have solved my problem.
  • Pros: This thing is rugged - can handle power surges and hot temperatures and keep on chugging. A reliable WAP for sure.
  • Cons: Not-so-clear help in the Web GUI. Questionable operation as a repeater. I tried everything I could to make this repeat the signal of a Linksys WRT54G - including disabling all wireless security. I could not make this work. I've read reports that even if you do get the repeater to work, it can't h...

Broke Paw

Larry D., Newegg
25 May 2010
  • Summary: I think that linksys recert is lousy. The screws were loose on the antenna connectors and the reason that it quit working was because the pwr connector had a short or open of some type. Wiggled the connector around and it starting working and has been working since.
  • Pros: Open box, setup and working perfectly within 5 mins.
  • Cons: Quit working after 18 hrs.

Seems to work great!

Ben P., Newegg
6 May 2010
  • Pros: This device seems to work great.
  • Cons: The one weird thing was the error in the documentation regarding the default username/password. I think it said username:"admin" and password:"admin" but in reality it was username:"" (blank) and password:"admin". That would have been annoying if I hadn't read someone else complaining about that...

Great WAP

Paul M., Newegg
1 April 2010
  • Summary: Installing and configuring DD-WRT is not for novice users.. The start-up scripts must be altered, MAC addresses changed, antenna gain and output also has to be tuned slightly (depending on your configuration and the distance separating devices).
  • Pros: These WAPs work great with DD-WRT loaded. Have set-up a wireless distro system in my neighborhood and it has worked flawlessly since day 1. GREAT price with the "Shell Shocker deal", $20 each.
  • Cons: None as of yet...

Fantasic

Stewart Y., Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Pros: Great range, decent speed, GREAT PRICE I have one of these in my school, and i can get at least 2 bars ANYWHERE on campus. Granted i do have the antenna about 25' in the air, but so what? Why buy something more expensive? When you get the antenna as high as possible, you would be surprised at the...
  • Cons: Antennas are hard to put the peaks of tiny attics... And no 802.11n, which is pretty darn fast for wireless, btw...

Works for me

annette j., Newegg
27 January 2010
  • Summary: Overall not bad, relatively ez to incorporate into the LAN. I'm buying another to fill in some weak zones in the home.
  • Pros: Helps my home network a little. The kids enjoy this - they can run around the house, for the most part, w/ their netbooks.
  • Cons: Coverage needs improved
