Summary: this item does not work . . . it is difficult to set up and i have tried numerous times to set it up with my airport extreme router and it will not work. i would not recommend this and if the time had not passed for returning this item, i would return it and find a better solution for extending my wireless network.
Summary: The quick-start doesn't work with Mac. The only instructions that worked were the first comment in the reviews. Once I got it working it was lightyears worse than my Netgear wifi extender (which also isn't that good, that's how bad this product is).
Summary: Don't know if the product was bad or not but the customer support was surely the worst.. The guy on the phone couldn't help me an inch and I got so fed up and frustrated with the bleak knowledge that CS rep had about their own product that I decided not to waste me time on a product that is yet to discovered by its own master
Summary: Let's start with documentation: Joke. Only quick setup guide provided. You have to hunt around a ridiculous website to find the pdf of the user guide. Let's go to setup software: One of the buggiest, most poorly designed pieces of software I have seen in quite a while. The programmers should be ashamed of themselves. Setup wizard: Don't bother. First you have to hunt around for the wizard button which is .25" by .25".
Summary: On August 12th I commented that I "Added these to smooth out the wireless around the house but after adding the ZyXel 4215's stopped working and these set up a second network. Back to the fine print and lots of time to figure it out. Not as easy as the reviews indicated." On August 18th I gave up after 2 man days trying to bring these into my wereless system (and asked for a refund).
Summary: I bought this hoping to boost the wifi signal in my bedroom. I have signal there already, but my laptop takes much longer to connect than it does when it is closer to the main access point. The device actually made my connection less reliable. When connected to it, I would randomly lose connectivity every now and then. Not recommended.
Works, but provides ZERO improvement. RETURNED it.

Summary: Since I am updating this review, I should add that I spent about 20 more hours (on top of the initial 10) trying to understand how it works. The good news is that I managed to figure it out. Once you know that, then it's super easy! So, for the poor souls who would otherwise get extremely frustrated, here are the steps for a case where you have a wired computer connected to a router. 1.
