5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: easy to set up
great coverage
easy to customize with advanced settings
so far seems very stable/ no crashes

Cons: The provided ethernet cableis too short if you want to set up the access point in a different room from where the router is.
I am nitpicking, but a better wall mount or stand also would be better.

Other Thoughts: not sure why others have reported problems with this. I was able to link it using normal network cables to my router as they are 30 feet apart the provided cable would have been too short.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!!

Pros: Easy to setup. Was up and running in less than 5 minutes. I wasn't able to use the web interface IP address that they provided. I figured out my router gave it a different IP address and used that and accessed it perfectly. So if you can't access it, see what IP your router assigned it. I didn't really see this as a con

Cons: After 4 weeks I can't see any. All 3 that I purchased are working great.

Other Thoughts: I own my own computer service company and I was skeptical at first purchasing a no name brand, but with the good reviews others left I thought I'd try it. I am very pleased with the performance of this unit. It covers the entire upstairs with extended wi-fi. I was so pleased I purchased 2 more for computer customers and they are equally happy with this.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

Pros: Easy set up but ONLY via wireless link.

Cons: None that I've found

Other Thoughts: Setup was a bit confusing until I fully understood that the initial setup can ONLY be accomplished via a wireless link. This seems a bit odd, but it's the only way to get it done. It seems plenty fast and provides coverage over both levels of our house with the WAP at on end of the house.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated the firmware, no more Apple connectivity problems!

Pros: Eggcellent range, instant connectivity, no more problems with Apple iPads wifi recognition anymore after firmware upgrade.

Cons: Need to upgrade to Firmware Version v1.2e.03 to make it an eggcellent product - see other thoughts below:

Other Thoughts: When I first got this product for a home single wifi Access Point months ago I almost threw it in the trash can. Microsoft or Intel products would connect just fine but it would take minutes for any iPads to connect to it's wifi. However, after upgrading the firmware that specifically addressed Apple connectivity issues, this item now rocks! Range is great! As an afterthought I would set the channel to 11 as pretty much all your neighbor's 2.4ghz channels default to 6.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a true Repeater

Pros: Great customer service. Very responsive.

Cons: 1) Their interface is confusing and not advanced enough. No explanations of the various options and there exists no site map outside the terrible wizard.

2) I bought this based that this repeater utilized both antennas. I needed this to occur because I was bringing the network over from my other house across the driveway. However, after talking to the service team, they informed me that only one antenna works and the other is a backup when demand is high. This completely goes against why I bought this. To me this was a bait and switch situation. Not going with this company again.

Other Thoughts: This would be a great company to do business with if they would not lie in their advertising of the product. However, I will not get suckered into this again. I now have to buy a router to repeat the signal in the house. This adds to the expense.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for any inconvenience that you may have had with your repeater. We try very hard to make our setup process quick and easy. We are very sorry to hear that this was not the case for your setup. Please contact our free US based Elite Support at 888-573-8820 if you would like a more suitable product recommendation.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It has a nice strong wifi signal.

Cons: It uses non-standard rj45 cables that one must buy or make. It doesn't have normal DHCP which was not addressed in the advertising. Turns out I cannot use this AP from my dsl modem as wifi AP and wired switch because DHCP will not serve IP info. I'm returning this product.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Amped tech support, so they won't add to my complaint that I didn't give them a chance. They responded: "it's not meant to provide DHCP that should come from your router." Okay.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about your negative experience. Our AP does support DHCP. It can function as a Server, Client, or you can disable and set a static IP. To enable as a server go to More Settings | IP settings and change the DHCP mode to Server. From there you must adjust the Client range to what ever IP scheme you and your router are on. This will serve IP address to any connected clients.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: Easy Setup. Thats all

Cons: Very bad coverage. Wireless connection very spotty. Stay away.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about your negative experience with your repeater. Our devices to put out 600mW, that is more amplification than a standard router/repeater, and should cover up to 10,000 sq ft. There are environmental factors that may degrade your signal or you may be communicating on a congested channel. Give our US based Elite Support team a call today and we can help you verify the placement and settings are correct on this device.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes not support Bonjour

Pros: Good range. Works reliably.

Cons: Does not support Bonjour protocol. Thus, cannot use AirPrint or other similar services with iPhone, etc. Tech support claims they are working on it and there will be a firmware update. But, no expected release date was given.

Other Thoughts: Accessing the setup menu was difficult. Once connected, however, the rest of setup was easy.

1 out of 5 eggsBuggy

Pros: Long range

Cons: The instructions don't tell you that you can't use a regular patch cable that has all 8 pins wired. If you do, it screws up the AP with all kinds of blinking lights on the thing. You HAVE to use their cable which only has 4 of the pins wired. Plugging into a cisco switch with all 8 pins wired (no PoE) will make you do a hard reset on it.

They also don't tell you that the configuration is not compatible with the Firefox web browser on a Mac. If you try to change the IP address, you can't save your settings using the Firefox browser.

Other Thoughts: If you are ok with the default settings of having an IP address of 192.168.1.240, you only have one AP and you are ok with it now being your DHCP server, then I guess it's ok. I spent 6 hours trying to get ONE of these stupid things working uncovering this companies horrible QA processes. Seems they just ship stuff out and will let the customer figure out the issues. Can't use a regular patch cable?! COME ON!!!

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about your negative experience with your repeater. Our devices use Passive PoE and only when the device is connected to a device that has a power output of greater than 50v. The AP will power down so the extra power will not blow up the circuit board. If the AP is powering off, you can use any cat5 cable with a Ethernet coupler. This will resolve any issues you have with the PoE. In regard to the DHCP on this device, once it is connected to your router it will become a client and forwarding agent. DHCP is an option, but you do not have to use it this way. The default IP changes as the AP becomes a member of the network. If you would like to disable DHCP altogether, set the repeater up with a static IP on your subnet.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy this!

Pros: Nothing to speak of

Cons: Unit connects to my home wifi signal and sends out excellent signal throughout house. Problem is that it doesnt transmit any data. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times exactly according to instructions. All devices can pick up the signal it is transmitting but thats all they do. Even when I connect my iphone to it, the phone's internet will not work due to "no internet connection". Very frustrating unit. Now I have a $90 piece of plastic laying around the house. After several times installing and the software telling me it is installed correctly, you would think it would eventually work. Nope. It doesnt even work when wired directly to a device with an ethernet cord. Junk in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Dont buy unless you have an extra $90 to throw away. Definitely does not work like advertised.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry for your negative experience with your repeater. It sounds like the repeater and router are not talking. Our device is universal so you must have a settings mismatch. Give our US based Elite Support (888-573-8820) a call and a experienced and friendly Concierge will walk you through the trouble shooting process and verify your settings are correct and you are receiving sufficient signal strength from your router.
