Some Help 10/08/2013
Great working A/P AND Range Extender in one for a very nice price. (Allegedly awesome tech support on the phone.) VERY fast in everything it does. LOTs and LOTs of settings! Some wireless settings I'd never even seen before! All common security features available.
Unusually bad instructions, little web based help (yet)
I didn't get this at Newegg, but I read the reviews here.
It actually hurts my brain to see this thing get trashed because people can't figure out how to set it up and I thought I'd try to help.
You can't get at anything that's on a different subnet. In other words, if you have your computer set for, say, 192.168.0.2, and you try to talk to something set at, say, 192.168.10.1 (which the YooToo comes set to), you won't be able to talk to it. You must set TCP/IP properties in connection properties (in Windows) to 192.168.10.x and THEN go to 192.168.10.1, which is the YooToo. (The 10 is the important number.) THEN you can get at the YooToo and set it to whatever IP address you want and set your computer back. Once you're in, this thing has a setting for everything you could ever need and it will work unless you actually got a broken one (very unlikely). Seriously, the web interface in the device is waaay better than the booklet that comes with it!! Once you're in, you're in!
Do NOT, unless you're real slick, turn on the YooToo's DHCP! It will "grab" devices from the LAN asking for IP's and give out IP addresses "behind your router's back" and make a very hard to troubleshoot mess. Turn off DHCP in the YooToo and let the router handle it; the YooToo will pass it right on through. With these two things in mind, I think anyone would have to end up loving this thing once it's set up. Everything it does is blazing fast! Seriously, (even) the web interface is faster than the web interface in my top of the line dual band N router is!! Only my gigabit switches are faster than this thing! (And they don't have to come up with web pages.)
