3 out of 5 eggsAll good but it was tricky to set up in an advanced network.

Pros: For common home network, it is simple and east to set up. Just follow the instructions and you should have it up in few minutes. It works on both 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrums and Airplay works perfectly fine.

Cons: If you have advanced wireless network, then you need to make sure that multicast is enabled and functioning for Airplay. Also, you need to ensure your wireless router does accept and respond arp request from passive client (this wireless bridge). If not, device connected to the bridge will not get DHCP address from your network.

Other Thoughts: It is primitively designed for SOHO use and it's cost is low. Set up page needs to be improved for more configuration options.

4 out of 5 eggsManually choosing 5GHz fixes connection

Pros: Cost, dual-band, and airplay. As mentioned in the previous review, 5GHz connections don't work, but following the advise of the tech support response finally did get it to connect. I had to try about three of the channels they suggested before it work. Airport routers select optimal channels automatically so I'm not excited with the manual override, though.

Cons: The manual should really stated the 5GHz limitations.

2 out of 5 eggsHard to setup. 5GHz doesn't work

Pros: Price (you get what you pay for). Airplay support

Cons: 5GHz doesn't work. It doesn't see any 5GHz networks although all my other devices have no problem joining. Its hard to reset if you're trying to get it setup. i did get it set up on my 2.4GHz network and could only reset it via its web interface. Of course, now I can't get it to work at all. WPS doesn't work. And, more often than not, you can't conned to the initial setup networks it presents (I assume one is the 5G, but who can tell - it doesn't work).

Other Thoughts: Its worthless. Save your money and find something better if you want proper media support at 5GHz (as their own manual states). I really regret having wasted my time on this thing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the difficulty you are experiencing. We appreciate your feedback and would like to help you solve the problem.

Can you please verify the channel frequency of your 5Ghz network? Some dual band routers use Auto for channel selection. Their routers may choose a channel like 132 which is a dynamic frequency selection (DFS). Our wireless support channels of 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, and 165. You may want to manually choose a 5Ghz channel in your wireless router.

If you need any assistance on our products, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " " directly.

Best regards,
Edimax Customer Service Team
