1 out of 5 eggsEasy like sunday mornin?

Pros: This device stunned me. Got it on an "after cyber monday" deal for 15$, which fit perfectly as a christmas gift out of spite.

Cons: Got the thing and went to set it up. The box goes out of its way to make sure you understand just how easy it is to set this device up. It features your cliched tropes of the busy businessman, the elderly grandmother, the very young kid all attesting to how easy it is to set it up.

Apparently this company knew just how horrendous this product is. With decades of computer experience, and even stints in minor network administration, I have set up dozens of routers. By far and away this routers setup is the most convoluted, bizarre and tediously difficult.

It uses a proprietary IP browser based webpage setup. Getting it to "save" settings was like obtaining an act of congress to pull G od's teeth. Then despite functional network configurations, access points either refused or simply could not see it from all of 8 feet away. Then it could not even find connection via cat5 cable citing configuration not possible. The documentation supplied was in effect useless. Many of the settings "defaults" were put into some of the most counter intuitive choices that it boggles the mind why someone would purposely do that.

Other Thoughts: I have NEVER gave up on a router set up in my life, but during the attempt of trying to set it up for my gift recipients house, I had to give up after two hours of trying, with the intent to take it back to my house and test set it at home where I could devote more time and attention to it.

Not fully given up yet, but this thing is pushing me to my personal limit and I'm getting pretty close to thinking the problem is that the device is simply broken. Its literally that bad. I honestly hope I am wrong, or it is simply broken. But at this moment I would have to say avoid this like the plague. Even at 15$ this is NOT worth the hassle and headache.
