3 out of 5 eggsWorks, mostly

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: When it did work it was OK, not great but enough to get the WiFi to a different section of our place.

Cons: Stopped working after ~11 months.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent wireless bridge

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: I used this on a Neptune Apex aquarium controller. Its plugged into an EB-8. I linked it up with my home wireless router over wireless. This has worked flawlessly for over a year and a half. It has a single Ethernet port (connected to the Apex which has only wired Ethernet) and that is exactly what i needed to get my Apex online.

Cons: None that I have seen i over a years use.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: Works as described; good range and fast enough even though the unit adds an extra hop; compact size (leaves enough room to plug other cords next to it); all indicator lights can be configured off (e.g. no distracting glows)

Cons: setup can take some time if WPS isn't usable from the wireless router; resetting the unit may take multiple attempts; position of on/off switch can be tripped too easily if not careful

Other Thoughts: bought a second unit months later since the first one did exactly what I wanted

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Took me a sec. to figure how to set it up but it's not hard at all.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Works

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: Very easy setup. Did it once and the thing just works. I use it primarily for my wifeless HP printer and a failsafe for the mobile devices that will likely wander out of the range of the WiFi router in my basement. Does not seem to have any trouble re-connecting when I reboot the router. I've used it to extend the range of both a DLink DIR-825 and an ASUS RT-AC66U.

Cons: Would be nice if it was a bit slimer. Have in a hallway and it occasionally gets bumped.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: It was easy to setup.

Cons: The device is useless, utterly useless. It worked well for about a week and then nothing but constant issues.

It was placed in an area that had great signal and would show that it was transmitting without issue. However, 75% of the time it would stop broadcasting its SSID and I could not maintain a connection to it. The connection was so bad, that I would often connect my wireless router and deal with its slow response over this device.

Other Thoughts: Tell you what, if you want one you can have mine. Currently it is in 6 pieces after being thrown against the ground. Honestly, that was the best use I got out of it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Shane,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn.

Unfortunately we are not sure why the unit stopped after a week. It could be a hardware failure.

We have 2 years warranty for our products.

If you need replacement service, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

1 out of 5 eggsFollow up to "don't bother"

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: none

Cons: see original review

Other Thoughts: Follow up to manufacturer response.
I wish distance was the case here. When setting up, edimax was within 5 feet from my wireless router, so distance is definitely not the problem here. The device just didn't work as expected fro me.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear dymek,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn.

We need to know more information about your existing WiFi network. We also need to know the brand and the model of your WiFi router which needs to extend the range. Hopefully we can resolve this connection issue for you.

Please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: Pretty case

Cons: Simply does not work. After initial setup in repeater mode, it will stay connected for a minute or two, than it will revert to using it's original default IP and drop internet connection. Router show that it is still connected but no outside access. All pages get redirected to internal setup page. Tried resetting and setting up fresh several times, always with the same result.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a dud, but that is still not acceptable

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn.

It seems the extender does not receive WiFi signal from the root WiFi network. If the extender is not in the range of the existing WiFi network, it will drop connections. We recommend you put the extender next to the WiFi router to set up. Once you confirmed the extender recognize your network, then you can put the extender in the middle between the dead zone and your WiFi router.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

3 out of 5 eggsHit and Miss

This review is from: Edimax EW-7438RPn V2 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender, Repeater, Wireless Bridge, Access Point, Wall Plug design, Smart LED Signal Indicator, Easy iQSetup by Smart Phone (No CD Required)

Pros: It work great on the first month, but it keeps rejecting my connection.

Cons: It doesn't last.

Other Thoughts: Don't use it in the basement.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We are sorry that you have issues with EW-7438RPn v2.

Please do not put the extender in a dead zone where it can not receive WiFi signal from your WiFi router. You can place the extender in the middle between the dead zone and your WiFi router.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (800)652-6776 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.
