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.

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: Once it was setup and working it covered my downstairs wonderfully. The instructions are just a little much because it offers so many options. Which is good but I like easy. I am not a technical neophyte as I have been working in the computer field for decades.
Summary: I purchased this product to act as a Repeater not an Access Point to get a stronger signal on the other side of my house since my wireless signal dropped dramatically over there. I placed this product several places close to the other side of the house but there wasn't much improvement.
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 have used a home computer since 1981. After 1 1/2 days, I had to abandon my attempts to install the WAP 3205 v2 on my home network. The manual is full of errors. Even worse is the absence of complete instructions and needed diagrams. I have never had a worse experience with a computer product.
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.
