Summary: I use two of these as a point-to-point bridge between two buildings 100 feet apart. Setup is fairly simple. I have a restaurant/bar in one building and my office in the other. The POS system in the restaurant communicates over the bridge to the POS server in the office. It has performed flawlessly for over two years now. I just replaced one of the units last week (with the spare I kept on hand) that failed due to a nearby lightning storm (I assume).
Summary: These little units are great! I am using one to test extending a network for one of the local parks and so far it has worked great. The little device had a recent update of its firmware, which apparently was intended to work out some pre-existing bugs. The device is cheap for what it is capable of doing and as in "repeater" mode it has worked out great. I have purchased two in total.
Summary: This device has been through several thunderstorms out in open weather on a 30' antenna. Not rated for this kind of abuse, but is still working. Have had no issues with it, and it is very easy to set up in AP mode. I haven't tried the other modes but I believe they are only useful if you are using it on the receiving end of a connection.
Summary: My reason for buying this in the first place was because it was reported to have superior sensitivity. NOT TRUE! It will find an access point with a signal level of just 1db, but like all the other access points, it won't lock on a signal level of less the 14db so its really no better.
Cons: Boy, did I get stuck!!! Like others have reported, the software is glitchy BUT the housing is a design flaw too. I bought this to replace a 2 year old E*Genius that went bad. I climbed a tower to replace the E*Genius to find the outdoor ethernet cable jacket was to long to plug in to this unit and be able to close its door. The reason the door wouldn't close is because the hole in the housing for the ethernet cable to go through is drilled 1/2" to the left of the ethe...

Summary: I don't assign this product 5 stars only because this ranking is labeled as "I love it". I don't feel that electronic devices are an appropriate love object. I set up the access point inside the house, facing out a window at an adobe guest house 75 yards away. The signal is very strong there and I'm completely satisfied. There was a firmware bug encountered during the setup.
