Summary: All you have to do is plug in all the plugs and follow the rock simple directions and forget about it. This little power plant has run two phones, two laptops and an iPad 2 with not so much as a blink.
Summary: The network extender was not very reliable. It has stopped working and freezes in the setup screen only after 3 months and unfortunately can't be replaced now that its out of the return policy window.
Summary: Once set up, this does work as advertised. The reason I only give it four stars is that the instructions for setup say you have to take a computer and give it a specific static IP address, and then once you do that you can access the WAP, set it up, etc. Then reset the computer to use DHCP. Doing some of the setup steps on a network (e.g., at work) can be quite a pain.
Summary: This Access Point (AP) has a default IP address of 192.168.0.227. I set my PC IP address to 192.168.0.210, opened the browser and entered AP address (192.168.0.227) in the header. To work with my router which has an IP address of 192.168.1.1 I had to change the default IP address of this unit from 192.168.0.227 to 192.168.1.227. The unit loses connection with the computer after applying these settings.
Pros: Easy setup once you realize that you lose connection after changing default IP address in the setup software (see other thoughts below). Works with existing router. Nice looking package. Good Range.
Pros: Great product, newegg prices are competitive as any. User reviews on Newegg really help since most Neweggers are tech oriented and if there are tech issues with a product you see that before you buy
Cons: Newegg delivery used to be super fast. Now, 3 days after you order you get a DHL tracking number, then 7 days later, DHL hands the package off to --wait for it--THE POST OFFICE! Then, the mailman gets slowly around to bringing it. Total time order to box thru your door: 8 days. Newegg- you get a frowny face!
Summary: I purchased this AP refurbished for less than $20 and am completely satisfied with it. I only need wireless access for guests web browsing with their laptops and one wireless printer that I seldom use. I don't need the latest and greatest 802.11n wireless, I have gigabit ethernet if more bandwidth is needed. I had another one of this same access point several years ago and never had any problems in 4-5 years of use.
