5 out of 5 eggsNice repeater

Pros: Inexpensive
Easy to configure
Easy to hide

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a range extender (repeater) for better signal to the basement, back deck and yard. The main wireless router is in an upstairs corner office and with this on the 1st floor opposite corner it covers everything pretty well.

4 out of 5 eggsSimply functional

Pros: This thing is tiny. Easily fits in the palm of my manlet hands. (see other thoughts)
It works well enough. It's not the best of signals, and it does seem to bottleneck my speeds, but honestly it's basically acting as a cheap WAP placeholder for my studio apartment.
Somewhat easy to set up. (see other thoughts)

Cons: I could list a million features this little guy lacks, but anyone expecting a features list that would be more fitting on a product 8 times the cost of this would be kind of silly.

Other Thoughts: Right, so I said this is tiny. It's true. Almost disfunctionally small, because there's no way its weight could hold stubborn cat5 cables in place. It also has no mounting holes in the back (because there'd be no space for them). So, yeah it basically just dangles off the back of my desk or is held suspended in the air by the cat5 cables. Kinda weird, and that really irks my autism.

Also, I said "somewhat easy" in my pros. This is true. It comes with a CD that, when used, functions perfectly well and as intended. But, when you plug the little monster in your computer for the first time, you might be tempted by all the flashing lights that everything is working ok without the CD, and try opening your browser. If, for some reason you are like me, you do this, the online setup wizard will pop up in your browser, thus leading you into networking oblivion from which you cannot return without restarting your whole setup. Kind of frustrating; but then I remembered there was a tiny CD in the box waiting for me, like a star shining through the mists, illuminating my path forward, no doubt calling my name.

If only I knew to listen.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall, cheap, and effective

Pros: USB power (or usb to wall). Small.

Cons: http interface is not my favorite but you will find your way around still.

Other Thoughts: I keep this in my laptop bag. I plug it into a network if I need to test a router or wifi. Also, this is handy if someone doesn't know there wifi password.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little router with one problem

Pros: Minute size
Speed
Stability - so far

Cons: There's a high-frequency buzzing that's barely audible but definitely annoying. I don't know if it is just my unit.

1 out of 5 eggsbad buy

Pros: Small form factor

Cons: Poor reliability in the micro usb connector. The connector was loose when I tried to connect it and sheared right off the board. Could hear it rattling inside. Popped open case- the solder joints are too small and there is really no physical support.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great product. Easy setup.Using in Station Infrastructure. Pioneer AVR has an ethernet connection (hard wired connection) only. Used this as a wireless bridge to wirelessly connect to my wi-fi router. Could not be happier. Will buy another one soon. Unit has a small footprint.

Cons: None. Does what it was designed for.......

5 out of 5 eggs$0.20/month electricity usage

Pros: Small size. Low price. Energy efficient. Numerous setup options, even better than most full size routers. QOS with bandwidth limiting.

Cons: WPA2 passphrase cannot contain spaces. Stick with letters and numbers.

Other Thoughts: This is a great little device. However, I spent hours troubleshooting why wireless wouldn't connect with WPA2, before determining that it was because I had spaces in the passphrase. Every other router I've ever used was ok with spaces. Minus one egg for the trouble. But I give the egg back due to the amazing power efficiency, my Watt meter shows normally about 1 watt and 2-3 watts under heavy WiFi usage. At my electricity rate of $0.14 per KWH it says the router will cost me $0.20 per month to operate.

5 out of 5 eggsHandy little tool

Pros: It is so versatile and tiny, easy to keep in a briefcase or laptop bag. I like having one available for a particular task (see other thoughts) that I haven't seen anyone else mention.

Cons: Requires some effort to master.

Other Thoughts: When I'm doing an OS installation, or just adding a wireless adapter (internal or usb) to a desktop computer, there comes a point when I need to install the driver for the wireless adapter. It's available on the internet, maybe even on Windows update, but how do I connect? Maybe I can rig a temporary wired connection, or else use sneaker-net by running a thumb drive between computers.

But this little router gives a better option. When it's configured as a wireless-to-wired bridge, I can just plug it into the ethernet port and a usb port (for power) of the computer I'm working on, and then run Windows update or surf the web to get the needed drivers for the wireless adapter. That is, the Nano router lets me have _driverless_ access to the internet on any computer. Very handy.

4 out of 5 eggsFair price ($21.99) for a nifty usefull product

Pros: - Very compact
- Supports b/g/n and wired connections
- Can be used as a router, ap or repeater
- price point at $21.99 is fair
- Security features like allowing certain mac addresses to connect is nice
- Very good and timely customer support
- WPS button

Cons: - Needs better instructions on how to set up the repeater; had to search online for it.
- Lacks ability to hide/not broadcast SSID to give it more security
- Would be nice to add a usb port to plug in a flash drive for media sharing
- Cannot be used as a charger to charge other devices to get more uses out of it (all-in-one for travel)

Other Thoughts: Overall, very nifty gadget for a fair price. Lacked media sharing which the D-link dir-505 version of this has. If purchased for full price, then I would get the D-Link version instead since it includes a 16/32 gb flash drive for media sharing and you can double it up as a charger too.
