5 out of 5 eggsBudget media access without cables

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: This device has been working without a hitch since I got it setup. I am using this for streaming media content to an older blue ray without wifi and it gives me additional ports for other devices (xbox, etc.) The device is connected to a FIOS router using WPA.

Cons: It took me two tries to get it setup correctly. Reset procedure took a few google searches to figure out, but if I had done it right the first time, this would not have been necessary.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost gave up but...

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Fast, easy setup. Great speed. Upgrade the antennas, just do it.

Cons: 2dbi antennae. Difficult to re-access the web interface.

Other Thoughts: I had this for a year and it was flawless. Powerful, simple, fast. Then it started dropping me, so I wanted to log back onto 192.168.0.1, as the manual states. Nope, no access. I reset and no access (my theory is this is a reset, not a reset to factory). SO I took another person on this site's advice and entered into the url line of my browser: erb300h/. Voila, the interface was back, I could now access my unit, update the firmware to 1.1.5 and set it up again. Now things are back to normal. I had ordered another unit as a backup the other day, and my faith in this product is restored for now.

4 out of 5 eggsISP issues

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Price ($30)
Great at extending Wifi
EnGenius Customer Support was helpful.

Cons: Customer Support had me wait for 20min to patch me through to a person.

Sometimes the extended Wifi signal isn't a noticeable increase.

Other Thoughts: If you rent/lease a modem from your ISP or your ISP blocks you from accessing your modem through its IP address simply turn off your computer's wireless network functions, connect a ethernet cord (one is included) to your new wireless range extender (power supply also plugged in) and change your primary DNS to 192.168.1.21 and your secondary to 255.255.255.0 Then go to http://192.168.1.250/login.htm (while not connected to your internet but rather this device) Log in with the credentials Username and Password: Admin From there you go through some tabs at the side to advance setting and find your Wifi name. Then enter your normal WEP key or whatever you use and it will ghost copy your Wifi. Then reactivate your Wireless to reset your DNS settings. (There's probably a part that I missed about holding the button down, but for the most part it's in the manual) I hope I helped a little.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat range extender

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Easy set up as range extender
Solid signal

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: The price was great. The set up couldn't be any easier. Let it find your network, put in the security for your current network, put in the security for the extended network, DONE.

My neighbor is so happy about his improved Wi-Fi signal.

5 out of 5 eggsExtend the Bridge

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Cost a few dollars more than others, but it works beyond expectations. I bought this to extend the range of the wireless network. It took 14% to 34% wireless signal and boosted it 1o 100%.

I had desktops which I needed to hook up, so I took the next step. I wired this to a Netgear wireless/wired router and bridged the wireless network. I created a new wireless SSID (I had my reasons for this). I was able to connect the wired desktops to the Netgear. Wired and wireless devices are all on the network. I recommend this product.

Cons: The interface is simple. Just let the wizard do the job for you.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Bridge

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Nice external antennas
Comes with mounting screws
Works
Simple setup
4 ports

Cons: Limited wireless security combinations (see below)
Reaching the console after setting up as a bridge is undocumented
CAT5 cable included is 21 inches, which I found to be fairly useless
Either low workmanship or unlucky (see below)

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a bridge for some machines that were just a bit too far away from my main wireless access. This device is talking to a router running DD-WRT. When attempting to hook up to the network it can use WPA and TKIP or WPA2 and AES but it didn't allow WPA2 and TKIP as one of the choices. If your router is configured that way you can change it to be WPA2 AES+TKIP. This will drop some of your clients although they will eventually reconnect.
I didn't see any way to get back to the console after you've placed the device in bridge mode other than reseting it. The manual is rather short because it's simple to set up. But it doesn't tell you how you can do this and I'm not sure you even can.
My device has something loose inside it. As soon as I picked it up you could hear something inside it sliding around. Tilting it back and forth you can hear the item moving. I hope it's a pieces of plastic and not metal.
It configured and worked so I'm not returning it.
After installing this, I think of this as a value product not a high quality product.
Hope this review helps somebody.

3 out of 5 eggsworks well... client-bridge mode quirks

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: simple setup for network repeater mode.
EnGenius Tech Support: responsive, helpful.

Cons: apparent quirk (possible bug) effecting Windows 7 dhcp clients when used in Client Bridge mode and Static-IP assigned to ERB300H (firmware v1.1.5).
See Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Quirk (possible bug) with Windows 7 DHCP client and ERB300H in Client Bridge mode (firmware v1.1.5):

Upon connecting to the network, either by ethernet to ERB300H switch ports, or by WiFi to primary router, the primary (a WHR-HP-G300N w factory installed dd-wrt) offers proper DHCP values for gateway and dns, but ERB300H updates them so that dhcp-server and dns-servers point to the ERB300H instead of the primary router, resulting in Windows 7 clients having LAN access only. While this issue did not effect my Android Phone or Linux Mint box, a packet capture confirmed the ERB300H did send out the incorrect values. Not yet sure why Windows used them, but Linux did not. This occurs with the ERB300H in Client-Bridge mode and it's IP address statically configured (the default), regardless of the values entered in the ERB300H LAN DNS fields.

WORK-AROUND FIX: after switching the ERB300H IP address to 'Dynamic', all has been well.

4 out of 5 eggsIts amazing!

This review is from: EnGenius Xtra Long-range ERB300H 4-Port Wireless-N Media Bridge and Range Extender

Pros: Great range and signal! Sure beats the hell out of my old router

Cons: A little confusing (It might be my problem)
The IP given in the manual didn't work that well so I used (erb300h/) to access the interface.

Other Thoughts: This is a great bridge and range extender. I would recommend this to people. Although setting it up prove to be a little difficult, it will start to make sense in the end. Thanks newegg for this amazing prize at the AMD Fan Day event at Metreon, San Francisco.
