Summary: After fiddling with WAP3205 with DIR655, I'm very proficient about setting up WAP3205v2 as the network control interface are very similar. Two things that will prevent the unit from working properly (mentioned in my WAP3205 review as well): 1. The IP address for your ethernet adaptor on your computer must be 192.168.1.3 before you may access the network control interface (192.168.1.2) at all.
Summary: I was looking for something to help extend the wireless in my house and this item is great. The double antenna makes the signal so much better since it allows for one to receive while the other send. However, the biggest problem I had, along with many other people, was the set up. The set up was hard to follow and the only instruction is a PDF which isn't all that clear on what to do.
Summary: The product arrived a day before estimated delivery date. The box contained the AP unit, a sheet containing sparse but simple instructions and diagrams, a CD (i am not sure what is that for) and an Ethernet cable. Setting up took 15 min. The instructions require you to plug in the ethernet cable in LAN port 2 and point your browser to 192.168.1.2. This worked once but got a page not found error before the unit could be set up to work as a repeater.
Summary: How many reviews have you read that started, "Once I got this setup, I liked this product?" Here's another one. I wanted to use this device in Universal Repeater Mode. The documentation makes some assumptions that proved critical to keeping this product from working. Here's what I did to get it working. * I discovered the device needed to be connected to my existing router, and then connected to a computer on my network. That wasn't clear in the instructions.
Summary: It took me four and half hours to set it up as a wireless repeater, literally. Well, four hours for researching and trouble shooting and only about 20 min or so to customize it. My main router is a D-Link Dir-655. For the longest time no matter what I tried, WAP3205 would refuse to connect.
Summary: Got it and got it to work as a repeater! I was sooo friggen frustrated and worked on this for hours trying to get it going. To view the Zyxel control panel, you have to switch your computer ip address to a different ip other than 192.168.2... I ran the setup wizard every which way from Sunday to no avail and no internet access. Then I realized I might need to switch the pc back to its original ip address... viola!
