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.
Summary: Needed a way to get Wi-Fi to my 85 year old mother-in-law who lives about a 1000 ft away across a small pasture so she could use the kindle fire I got her. Regular WIFI didn't get it and the $50 repeater/range extender wasn't any better. Ordered this and first tried it by taping it to my front porch rail and driving down the road at about 50mph with a lap-top. I lost signal 1.5 MILES down the road.
Summary: The product works well and is extremely versatile. The setup instructions leave a lot to be desired. I called the help desk number that comes with the unit. The person that answered had a lot of trouble speaking English and would not have been much help to anyone without a pretty good idea of what they were doing. I had to call because I could not find one of the screens I needed for setup.
Summary: It is important to note the following, which was not stated, or was not clear, on amazon.com's sales page for this device: 1) It is *ONLY* powered by Power Over Ethernet: there is a "power injector" device that the AC power adapter plugs in to, and then the power is delivered from the "power injector" to the CPE device via Ethernet cable. 2) One can *ONLY* configure the device with an Ethernet cable connected to one's computer, at least initially.
Summary: My Linksys wireless router used to hit my backyard pool with only a few dropouts, but the proliferation of wireless network and cordless phone traffic in my neighborhood over the past few years has crowded the airwaves - my old Linksys still works fine in the house, but getting a decent signal on the patio or deck has become difficult. I purchased a second wireless router and installed it in the basement of my raised ranch.
