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.
In defense of Zyxel there tech service was great they stayed with me until to unit was up

Summary: found the installation instructions to be lacking in content making the install much more difficult than necessary. This unit is not a plug and play unit as there is no WPS set up and found even after getting the unit up and working that you still cannot use the WPS to set up your other devices.

Summary: I bought these in conjunction with the w1000 to extend my wifi network did not work well for me with a finished basement and a large house with lots of walls. The repeater worked ok but the extenders did not. I wound up buying the Nighthawk Router which has both the range and speed that I needed.
Excerpt: The startup lit makes it look like an easy setup but its confusing and a bit frustrating. Almost sent it back but figured it out no thanks to the manual and online vids. Once it's set up it works great.
Summary: The only really annoying thing about this device is needing to hook it to a computer via static IP to do initial setup, the manual is complete rubbish. that drove me quite mad for awhile. the performance however is great, and I have gotten over 200ft in range as a repeater.
Documentation could be better-not quite as easy as advertised.

Summary: I've been a programmer for about 20 years so I'm not a techno-n00b but this thing took most of 2 hours to finally figure out how to make the setup work. Looking through all the comments on various websites I could tell that people were having the same trouble as I was just getting the configuration...
Summary: I just completed setting up my ZyXEL 300 Mbps Wireless Access Point. Completed, I should say, after almost an hour on the phone with their tech support. The gentleman (Salvadore) was excellent in terms of knowledge and skill and was very patient, but why the hell should I need tech support to set up...
