5 out of 5 eggsworking good.

Pros: Looks sleek and the price is right.

I bought one about 6 months ago and it's still going strong. Once I got it up and running it's been going non-stop ever since without any issue whatsoever.

I just bought a second one and it's working just fine.

Cons: Installed firmware was buggy. Updating it makes it much much better.

The instructions on how to get in and administer this device do not work. (see my other comments)

Other Thoughts: This devices defaults to 10.0.0.1 as it's IP, and as embarrassing as this is, it took me FOREVER to find it on my network when I first installed it. To make a long story short, I had to use an Asus discovery tool to find it. Leave it to Asus to try and be different and use that IP as its default, instead of the standard 192.168.X.X.

Maybe that's why this device was returned and now sold as refurbished. The first owner probably couldn't figure out how to get into it and administer it. The included instructions are not helpful, period.

4 out of 5 eggsGood device

Pros: Gigabit, easy config

Cons: older firmware has some bugs, but they are fixed with the newest version

Other Thoughts: I bought this to connect a few computers that were upstairs to my rt-n56u in the basement. Works great, I have the wired side connected to a gigabit switch and all the machines get the dhcp relay and act like they are connected with a wire. I am getting 280MB real world speed, which I am really happy with.

2 out of 5 eggsStarted off Good

Pros: First 2 months it worked excellent for extending the range of my Asus router.

Cons: After about 2 months, cannot get it to connect to router signal by WPS or manual entry. Just happy I didn't pay much for it.

Other Thoughts: I am looking at Amped Wireless high-power router replacement. Very good reviews on their products and priced well.

1 out of 5 eggsdefective access point

Pros: Small and Good when it works

Cons: defective device, doesn't maintain signal. This unit failed to maintain wifi signal. After a few hours it would just stop communicating. Restart did reestablish the network but again only for a short time.

Other Thoughts: Unit arrived in good condition and would be a good product if it worked.

3 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby. But not recommended for an AP

Pros: It works as a wireless network adapter for 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, or as an access point.

Only runs at 100mw in AP mode, but still had better range and speed than my AT&T router @ 400mw.

Activity LED can be dimmed or disabled.

Cons: In access point mode it does not allow simultaneous dual-band. It can only be set as a 2.4Ghz AP, or a 5Ghz AP. This didn't bother me too much since I only have a few wifi devices, and only my phone does 5ghz. But it could be nice to be able to take advantage of it. In my apartment complex 2.4 has a lot of interference

Other Thoughts: It's a very nice little device, and is perfect for what I needed it for. Mine had an issue with locking up and I had to reboot it for the wifi to work again. I'm unsure if this was just a defect or a software glitch in AP mode. it seems the primary design of this device is to be a wireless network adapter, so it may just not have been built with the guts to reliably be a wifi access point. Which is a pity. A dual Band wifi AP with a gig port is what I need. I got what I paid for. I'll have to dish out a little more for something better purposed as an AP

4 out of 5 eggsEasy and Fast

Pros: There are a few devices that fill this niche. I've owned a couple (but newegg rules ask me not to disclose them). This is the best for the extreme radio range and high throughputs I need. The cablemodem entry point to my house is on the bottom floor in the opposite corner of the house. I surf through this thing from my bedroom computer at full speeds and it just works.

Also, it has a great feature to turn off the LEDs at night. Terrific for bedroom use.

Cons: It's not a fraction as configurable as it's competitors. If you're used to having pages of cool settings to make it "perfectly fit" your odd home network, check out the online manuals because you don't get to change much.

Other Thoughts: I like it. I'll probably buy another one.

4 out of 5 eggsworks with latest firmware

Pros: Works pretty well, after I flashed to latest firmware (1.01.1.8h). Able to set to either 5 or 2.4GHz bands (via WPS or direct to unit). Prior to latest firmware, only able to connect via 2.4GHz band (when my goal was to connect via 5)

Cons: Not sure if firmware related or not, but when on older (1.01.1.8g) version, unit would allow me to set to 5GHz band but would not save. WPS connection only worked in 2.4GHz band. Luckily, a power outage, which knocked this unit off my wireless network, and could not reconnect via any method, made me look into firmware.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this in ethernet adapter mode; haven't tried extender or AP modes at all. For the price, this is a very good value solution.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Bought the refurb unit, works out of the box as expected.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I took the advice of others who had written below and if you follow their instructions this unit works like a charm. Mine came with firmware version 1.0.1.8f, and the first thing I did was connect to the unit using IP 10.0.1.1 and upgrade the firmware to 10.0.1.8h. This resulted in the unit now getting the IP 192.168.1.1. I then connected back to it, configured it as an AP, setup the static IP I wanted on the LAN side, changed a few other settings, and setup was complete. This took all of about 10 minutes. I have this hooked into a gigabit switch and the throughput is sweet.
