Pros: * Can be used as a wireless access point or a repeater. * Has two Ethernet ports that can be used in either mode. * Interface is consistent with other ZyXEL products. * I can now use high speed wireless on all three floors of my house at speeds of up to 300Mbps. * Has additional SSIDs; I have min...
Cons: * The antennas are fragile. Don't drop the box. I had to replace on of my units due to my own stupidity.
Both 3205s are set up as wireless bridge/repeaters and they work great. I had no trouble configuring them as others ...

Summary: I have a ZyXEL 5500 wireless router, a 3205 WAP out in my shop and I bought this 3205 ver 2 for the back bedroom. Both 3205s are set up as wireless bridge/repeaters and they work great. I had no trouble configuring them as others have complained about.
Summary: I've spent days trying to get it to work. It worked for awhile, but then disconnected. I thought it would be plugNplay, but I'm about to toss it into the heap of other networking hardware that failed to live up to it's reputation and specifications.
Summary: I tried the WPS function between this unit and the NBG4615v2 wireless router. They connected instantly and have been working great for at least a week now.
Pros: Very versatile unit. Can be an AP, Repeater, or Wireless client. Easy to set up with provided instructions. Very good range and sensitivity. Hooks up very well when used with a Zyxel wireless router (I used a NBG4615v2 wireless router with this unit and they work very well together)
Cons: Only 2 LAN ports when used as a wireless client.
Summary: Like others have said, don't buy this unless you are computer savey. It works fine, but setup is a bear. The quick guide is inaccurate, but the user manual on the disc is actually quite good as is the website. You don't have to set your computer to a static ip address.
Summary: I'm gonna do more research before purchase another replacement.
Pros: Was reliable until it failed.
Cons: I basically use it as an access point. I own 3 of these and this one just failed within 5 months of owning and an older version failed after a year and it while the other is still running strong with fast ups and downs. This one that failed has drastic reduction of speeds.
Summary: I brought this product knowing that some people had problems with setup. I figured because I knew quite a bit about computers I would not have a problem. I actually had a lot of trouble because the manufacturer did not give good instructions on the setup.
Summary: I bought this product based on a review from CNET or another online site. I purchased a warehouse returned unit. The unit looked brand new and had everything. I figured out how to set it up and configure it for repeater. That took a couple tries to figure it out.
