2 out of 5 eggsNot Simple or Better!

Pros: $10 Shell Shocker.
Reset button seems durable to me.
Probably fine as a wireless gateway in a motel.

Cons: Horrible instructions and a terrible interface leaves me without the functionality I was looking for despite my presumption that this device may indeed have that functionality.

Other Thoughts: I have tried for over a week (50+ resets) to figure out how to set this device as a wireless client to hook up an A/V receiver with an Ethernet cable. Perhaps it can't be done. If you don't have advanced training/education in networking theory, forget about it trying this more advanced set up as the manual is written for those with advanced networking knowledge. The manual's tagline "Connect your world Simple, better!" could not be farther from the truth in my opinion. Go with a dedicated media bridge device if you have A/V receiver with an Ethernet port that you want to add to your wireless network.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Travel

Pros: Small, Lightweight, Works. Granted i've only owned it for a day. I'll update after more usage.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wish that the adapter also provided ethernet pass-through. But I'm certainly not going to crack an egg for that.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't leave home without it!

Pros: Small and Light

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It makes a wired connection into a wireless connection. I always carry it when I travel. Its only needed once in a while, but a life-saver when you do need it. The most common usage (in fact the only) for me is when we stay at a hotel that has a wired internet connection in the room, and either has no wifi or very weak wifi. Just plug this goody in, and voila! you now have good wifi. Its small, light, an easy to always have in your travel bag-of-goodies. I haven't even bothered to mess with the settings - it works fine out of the box. For the very occasional use it gets, I'm not too worried about setting passwords, and I don't need to use this as a client device substitute, just a wireless router/access point.
BTW, someone compared this to the Edimax travel router. I have that one too, and much prefer this. The Edimax runs super-hot, and has been unreliable (forgets settings, ignores settings, disconnects, reboots). This one runs cool as a cuke, and I have had no reliability issues with it.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall and reliable

Pros: I buy this for portability and extra features. This thing does almost everything I ask: router, access point, bridge, and even repeater. Yes, it can function as a repeater with decent range and good speed (this is the AP Client mode under Operation Mode configuration). I let this thing run overnight and it's only warm to the touch. Never had a drop connection.

Cons: 1. Doesn't include a physical manual. I had to download that from the website.
2. Doesn't provide wireless USB adapter mode. This means if you have an age old pc without wireless adapter card, you can't just plug this in the USB port to function as one. Instead you have to use an Ethernet cable to establish a wired connection from this baby and the PC.

Other Thoughts: I'm just being nitpicking with the USB wireless adapter mode, as most devices nowadays are equipped with one already.

For all the intents and purposes of buying this little guy, all my needs are fulfilled.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk, don't buy

Pros: None, it bricked in 5 minutes.

Cons: Reset hole is so small, but using anything sharp enough to go in damages the button, and it didn't do anything anyway.

Can set the configuration to "brick" the unit (disable wireless without enabling ethernet) easily, and no factory reset.

The manuals and docs don't say anything about this or even about the reset button

Other Thoughts: It might be useful if it worked, but mine is just a doorstop

5 out of 5 eggsMemory in the air -- Delightful gizmo for tinkering

Pros: "Memory in the air" is written in the left margin of the admin console of this gizmo.

I am not sure if its configuration can be faulty or can be sticking. However I am quite impressed with its pretty integrated configuration (see it summarized in other thought).

Cons: Not the world smallest, but it is quite small.

Other Thoughts: The following is the possible settings of this little gizmo.

Internet setting: Operation Mode| WAN | LAN | DHCP clients |VPN passthrough| Routing
Wireless setting: Basic|Advanced|Security|Wds|Wps|Station List|Statistics
Firewall: IP/Port filtering | Port Forwarding | DMZ | System Firewall | Content Filetring
Admin: management | Update Firmware | Setting Management | Status

1 out of 5 eggsNOT the world's smallest router; Edimax BR-6258n is 1/2 its size

Pros: I won't comment on the functionality of this gizmo, as I still need to test it. However, I ordered it because its title quoted "World's smallest Wireless Router", but it is not. I know at least 4 different router brand that are smaller than this one!

Cons: Missleading title, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: In 2011 Edimax BR-6258n released a router that is 1/4 the size of this PQI 6W51. Now in 2013, it seems the brainer that is advertising for this piece of engineering get too excited to come out with such a wrong title:
1- Where did they come with the World's smallest Wireless Router? did they look elsewhere, and did they realize the size that is not quite to be classified within the smallest router?
2- as for the "Air Pen Express", where does the "pen" come from, it is rectangular and thick that look like any USB wireless gizmo but twice the size (e.g. Rosewill USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter).

It may be a 7 eggs winner for its functionality, so I will have another review after testing.
As for now, 1 egg for its poetic title.

5 out of 5 eggsPQI 6W51-0000R2 Air Pen Express - World's smallest Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: not sure yet I didn't buy it I all info here as far as eggs and stuff go is not valid I just said it to get to answer the other person question

Cons: not sure yet I didn't buy it

Other Thoughts: the other poster here asked if it could be used as a wireless repeater I download the manual in pdf and here what it says

"All Air pen express products support 3modes: Lazy Mode, Bridge Mode and
Repeater Mode.
Lazy Mode
There is no need to enter a BSSID on the counterpart device in this mode. Since the WDS
connection is now “passive”, the other party should enter the BSSID address of the router.
This means that the WDS function of the other device can be only the non-Lazy Mode
(Bridge or Repeater Mode). Also, the WDS connection of the devices must be in the same"
