If you truly want a stable device that has good performance you need 2 devices

Summary: Its semi-stable unlike the newer model. It is a wifi repeater so your bandwidth will be cut in half. If you truly want a stable device that has good performance you need 2 devices, one to receive wifi from source, and a different device to transmit to your computers/devices.
Summary: Disclaimer: I work with Cisco networking products so I felt confident enough to troubleshoot any problems with this extender, which there are many. My directions below worked for me, but please use them at your own caution. I do not suggest this Wireless Expander for anyone not technically sound.
Summary: First the pros Low,low price Works reasonably well Now the cons no longer supported by linksys (no firmware available)latest firmware provided on unit is 5+ years old no WPA2 no AES unless you track a firmware down on the net (not supported by linksys/cisco) and that firmware is WPA not WPA 2...
After 20 tries, got it to work over secure network!

Summary: I got the $25 refurbished unit because wireless signal did not reach our bedroom. After 20 hair pulling tries, was able to get it to work over our secure wireless network. For me: 1. CD did not work! 2. Wired connection did not work! 3. Unsecure wireless worked sporatically. 4.
Summary: I read all of the reviews but thought, how bad can it be (setting it up that is)? Some people said that it worked when they plugged it in without any set up. Others said that they just followed the instructions on the CD and had no problems.
Hope The Product Works Because Customer Service Doesn't

Summary: Even refurbished the product was defective. Before contacting Linksys customer service I followed the installation instructions which were simple and effective (insert the auto-setup CD followed by connecting power and LAN cable to the device).
