Summary: Quick start guide, which is all there was, came in 20 different languages. 191 page owners manual was online - - downloadable if you wanted to print it. The simple steps in the quick start guide enabled the ZyXEL to connect to my laptop, but I was never able to connect the ZyXEL to my wireless router. Online video didn't help either. Couldn't get past the 1st step where I was to enter enter an IP address that would take me to the 3205 setup window.
Excerpt: Unbelievably vacant instructions. Say just log on. But it would not log on. Then try to find support. When I eventually found the support link, I emailed my information and now continue to wait for a reply. So, I cannot tell you whether it works or not because it cannot be hooked up. By the way, I am not unfamiliar with computers.
Summary: This is a horrible piece of equipment and is impossible to set up. It provided you with a set up CD which only worked to an extent. You have to really know what you're doing when it comes to computers. This is not for people that do not know their way around a computer. DO NOT PURCHASE.
Summary: If you decide that this product is what you want then as soon as you connect it phone Technical support at 1(800)255-4101 option#5 because it doesn't work as advertised. Tried it on Win 7 Pro then 7 Home then XP (I have several computers in my home network).....it is not PNP ! No specific help from ZyXEL forums or bulletin's etc. If you do not have at least a bachelors degree in IT then do not try this one on !
Summary: This item is touted as being very simple to install and it is impossible. It takes a computer to set it up and the website address that is needed for the set up is not accessible. Sent it back and will buy something that truly does have an easy set up.
Summary: It was definitely a pain to set up as other reviewers have mentioned. I had to call tech support and I am a computer expert. Once it was set up, it would work on and off intermittently. Eventually, it just stopped working one day, about two weeks after setting it up. I lost patience with it and removed it from my network. It's collecting dust on the shelf now. fml.
