Excerpt: Here was my dilema: I have three rooms in which I have electronic equipment that need connecting to the internet. These devices included tivos, PS3s (without internal wireless network card), blu-ray players, Tvs, etc. All of these devices have the option to buy a wireless adaptors which averages $70.
Excerpt: I share my two computers with my landlords wireless connection. That means I need to connect 2 desktop systems to the internet via wireless (no wired option available). I found the Zyxel to be a kind of "swiss army knife) in that it can be a wireless access point, wireless extender or wireless router. I thought that was pretty cool, since no matter what my changing needs are, I can use this unit for a wide variety of uses. On top of that, it was fairly inexpensive at...
Pros: I've used this in all configurations and it nicely offers an easy mode and an expert mode. Perfect for a WAP to segment your wireless traffic into seperate SSID's. DHCP passthrough works great unlike some versions of DD-WRT. Overall I would highly recomme
Cons: Only thing I would say is two ports is not enough to use to bridge networks with multiple devices on each side. Of course an inexpensive switch can be used.
Summary: ZyXEL has fantastic customer service (at least via email). With their extra documentation offered before even receiving the product, I got this set up to add wi-fi support to an ethernet device in no time. Very happy.
Summary: I purchased this unit to connect my Sony Bravia TV back to my network. setup was little tricky, but Zyxel's support were of a great help. Very solid running unit, never froze on me especially when watching HD movies or streaming music. Taking in consideration the heavy media traffic associated with these HD movies.
Summary: I bought this AP to set it up as a WLAN Client to connect my Samsung LED HDTV (UN46B7000) with my existing wireless router (ASUS WL-520GU running tomato). I had to use the advanced setup mode to set the 128-bit WEP, due to older devices on my network that don't support WPA/WPA2. WEP is not available in the EZ setup mode. However, the EZ setup appears straight forward and probably would work for the majority.
Summary: This is the second time I have bought something from Buy.com that the UPC on the item I received did not match the UPC required to get the rebate. Buy.com's solution was for me to spend an additional $10.00 to return the item. I will think twice before ordering anything form Buy.com. However I am very satisfied with the ZyXEL Access Point.
Summary: I bought this device to use so I could use the Ethernet port on my Network TV to stream content from the supported apps and my PC. Once setup correctly, it has worked perfectly. Installing the new firmware was a snap. The rest of the setup was pretty smoothly, but then I hit a snag. I couldn't get it to attach to my wireless network even though it appeared to be setup correctly. After a couple hours and trying various options I caved in and called the technical support.
Summary: This is a great access point for a wireless-n network. It is very fast and very cheap. The only down side to it is you have to have a better than average knowledge about networking computers and routers. Documentation from Zyxel needs to be better especially for first time buyers of this access point. Overall, the product is very stable once set up. Not had a problem with it since I got it properly installed.
