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.
Summary: I live in a 6000 sq ft home and my modem and router are stored in an underground basement storage closet. I got this to extend the signal upstairs in the far corners of the house. First of all, with today's technology, most devices require little or no set up.
WAP3205 V2 is an OK unit once you figure out how to configure it. But is not for the non-techies.

Summary: After multiple attempts, resets, changing from UR to AP and back, using my wired PC then my wireless laptop to access the WAP3205 v2, I was able to finally get it operational. Continued to have issues getting settings to stick.

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: I works ok. I purchased it to get signal in another adjacent building about 150 feet away. The advertised range was 450ft. I placed the extender in the closest windows in each of the buildings.
