1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Range

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Setup was fairly straight forward if you force your wireless router to transmit on particular bands/security.

Cons: I got what I should have expected from a cheap wireless access point, horrible range. This item has worse Wifi sensitivity than my 3 year old cell phone. Speed through the connection ranged from 1 to 12 Mbps, thus limiting my internet speed while being about 60-80 feet from the wireless source. While downloading games on Steam, the device would lose connection and regain connection every minuter or so.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the slow internet speed you are experiencing with CV-7428nS.

We are not sure the model number of your WiFi router.

Can you please try a different channel frequency in your WiFi router? Usually we use channel 1, 6, or 11. You may get different performance and internet speed with our CV-7428nS.

For any further assistance on our products, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my Previous Review

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Easy to set up. Works as expected.

Cons: Maybe not the furthest range but Wi-Fi is a funny beast.

Other Thoughts: Previous I complained about the shipping speed. A comment that should have left on the shipper and not the product. I was in such a hurry to let my displeasure about the shipping vendor be known that I did not pay attention. to what I was doing. Not the manufactures fault.

2 out of 5 eggsSlower than the Molasses in January

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Product works and performs as expected.

Cons: Ordered on a Sunday. Order sat unprocessed until Friday. In the meantime I gave up and ordered one directly from another vendor on Thursday and got the one from the other vendor before this one which arrived the following Thursday. That works out to nine business days. Zzzzzzz.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Chrisrbmn,

We are sorry that you are not happy with the ordering process of Newegg. Usually Newegg is doing a great job in processing orders.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that our wireless bridge works well for you.

In case you need any technical assistance from us, please feel free to contact us at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". We appreciate your business.

Best regards,

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, works great

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Sensitive, it found many more wifi id's than my computer even with the little antennas.

Unlike some others Ive seen, this one stores your setting permanently. If power goes out or you need to unplug it and move it, it connects again in a few seconds with your saved password and settings.

Some people said it's usb powered ? Mine has a normal power adapter and round power plug.

Cons: Like others said, the included ethernet cable is short, about 3 ft. For me, thats not a problem, the device is right next to the vonage box. But cables are cheap, order a longer one with it if you need to.

Other Thoughts: What I needed was a bridge to hook up a vonage box (wired connections only) in a detached building, where I had wifi coverage.

It gets signal very well, it says 90% strength 100ft away from the router in a separate building. I plugged my laptop into it while setting it up (with the laptop's wifi off) and the internet was speedy fast, no noticeable slowing.

A tip, if you are getting poor wifi reception, check there are no other ssid's on your channel, if so, change the channel on your router. Also, many people still have old cordless phones, they use the same channels as most wifi's do. Get new phones, they use channels outside the wifi zone.

Some people said it's a pain to set up, I had no problem and it was up and running in a few minutes.

This product is great if you need a wired connection someplace where you have wifi coverage. Like for a tv, older non-wifi gaming console, blu-ray player, network printer, vonage box or any device the wifi has gone bad in. This could even be used in an office that has wifi, where you needed several desktop computers installed quickly with out running wires or buying separate wireless adapters.

Just remember this isnt a router or hotspot, you need to have wifi coverage already where you want to use it. This just coverts wifi back to a wired connection. You can plug 5 devices into it, you could probably plug a switch into it if you needed more than 5,. but you might be pushing the limits of this hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Easy to Set Up

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: Price

Cons: Unless you are a networking pro try something else. It wants you to change the ip address of the whole router to the point where the internet fails to get through, now this is only temporary to set up the device.
I did everything the instructions told me to do and nothing worked.

Other Thoughts: Tried on Windows 7 Pro

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your feedback. We would like to help you with the issue.

By default CV-7428nS is a DHCP server. It will give the Ethernet attached computer an IP address like 192.168.9.x. You can either go to the setup page at http://192.168.9.2 or http://edimax.go to make it connect to your wireless network. Please enter the same wireless password of your existing wireless network into the wireless bridge. Once the wireless bridge is connected, its DHCP will be disabled and it will get a dynamic IP address from your wireless router.

Attached is a step by step guide for the setup. You may try this guide after you hold the Reset button for 15 seconds. Hopefully this can help you out.

If you need any further assistance, please contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with any issues. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Best regards,
Edimax Tech Support Team

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: easy set up

Cons: it not helps a lot. only get 2 bars of signal.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your feedback.

CV-7428nS works as a wireless bridge. CV-7428nS is not a wireless extender to extend wireless range.

Wireless bridge is a Wi-Fi client so that ethernet devices can join with an existing Wi-Fi network.

There is no Wi-Fi signal from wireless bridge. Your Wi-Fi devices will not see the Wi-Fi network from Wireless Bridge. It is possible that the 2 bars signal is from your main Wi-Fi router.

If you need any further assistance, please contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with any issues. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Best regards,

1 out of 5 eggsUnsuitable for VoIP and gaming due to packet loss

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: It works ok for getting a wireless internet connection to a non-wireless device.

Cons: PACKET LOSS
Slows internet speeds
Setup is kind of a headache

Other Thoughts: My wife works from home and was provided an HP thin client machine by her employer. The machine is locked down to the point where you can't even install drivers, so we bought this as a solution for achieving wireless connectivity to our home network for the thin client and her VoIP box. She constantly had issues with choppy phone calls, and we were able to narrow the problem to packet loss caused by the Edimax bridge. We connected her VoIP box through her laptop instead and it works fine. She still uses the Edimax bridge for internet access on her machine, but it is slow and unreliable.

In short, if you're thinking of using this for VoIP or gaming, which are both severely affected by packet loss, forget about it. Find something else.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

We apologize for the issues you are experiencing.

May we get more information about how you connect VOIP box to laptop for Internet? Do you mean you connect VOIP box to your router?

We also need to know more information like the signal strength received from your WiFi router.

Please contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us ". Our tech support team will assist you with the issue.

Best regards,
Edimax Tech Support Team

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, setup meh

This review is from: Edimax CV-7428nS N300 Universal Wireless Bridge for Smart TV, Blu-ray, NAS, and Gaming Console, With iQ-Setup for Hassle Free Installation; Green Technology for Energy-Saving

Pros: This works exactly how its described, allows you to turn 4 wired devices wireless and connect to a wifi access point, very stable

Cons: Setting it up was a huge pain. Initially tired a wired connection on my desktop computer and didn't get anywhere, every time it validated the connection it failed. Tried to do it on my girlfriends laptop via the temporary wifi network this broadcasts, it took several attempts before it finally connect.

Other Thoughts: Seems kind of silly to me that you can't connect to it and set it up with a hardline connection. The whole point of it is that you don't have wifi on the device you're trying to use it with.
