Summary: The ZyXEL device is a small, unobtrusive wall wart, which does a basically simple thing without much fuss. For me, its major positive feature is the simplicity of its setup. There's a "Getting Started" sheet in its container, and following its instructions is quite straightforward, provided one...
Works fine but doesn't have as much range as I hoped

Summary: Our house was built 1929 and has plaster walls on metal lath. It's tough for wireless. The range extender really helps but seems to be limited to about 45-50 feet. Because of password on base wifi, manual setup and several attempts were required to connect to the base system.
Summary: The range extender works very well but the instructions were far from clear. The set up is very simple but this is not described in the leaflets that accompanied it. I had to cakll the supplier and as before they were very helfpul talking me through the set up.
Summary: I've read some of the previous comments and surprised at what people have written. Firstly I do work in IT and have some experience of networks. I did the "manual" way by connecting it to a laptop via a network cable and followed the instructions TO THE LETTER.
Summary: After the latest firmware update, some issues are fixed and it works fine now. The web interface is limited, i'd like more features to be honest, but in general is a great repeater. Hope more firmware updates will follow to add more functionality.
