Summary: First off, this item performed well once I figured out how to fit into my application. I use this as a wired point in my wireless environment. What I mean is that I extend the signal from my main access router to my basement and then I have 2 devices plugged into this unit (client mode). One thing that it does not do, and I was surprised, was that when it is in this mode, it no longer transmits a wireless signal.
Summary: This thing is a real steal at the price offered. The thing is, the reviews that both laude it, and trash it are largely correct. The documentation is a worthless poster that expects you to set up your network almost entirely with pictures. It is as if Ikea sent you the equipment. The set up is both easy and mysterious. The numbers on the poster were not the same ones that I used when I finally called tech support.
Summary: The device works really well but it is exactly what most reviewers said about the set up. If you've never set one of these things up before, don't even try. Call the customer service number immediately. They fixed me up right away. They were really good about walking me though everything. I think I could probably hook it up by myself now, but if I have trouble it's good to know that I can call customer service to help me.
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 does the job. I have a loft in back of a 12,000sq ft concrete block warehouse with concrete block partition walls. I can get the signal on any wireless product anywhere in the warehouse. Big Thanks to all the help from the reviewers. I would have never been able to set up the product without the reviewers. My set-up was simple, strait forward from a new cable router. I can't imagine what others do if the set-up is anything else.
