HooToo HT-WR01 Wireless N 300 Mbps 802.11 b/g/n Access Point / Signal Repeater / Range Extender (White)

Pros: I was a complete noob to that category of product so I read all the reviews prior to buying. I found the install to be a bit scary because the instructions are a little bit unclear but ultimately dead simple. Once you have the wizard in a tab of the browser it's time to set all the settings before submitting because the wizard will be (almost) unreachable once it has done its job (because of IP address + masking+ dhcp server) - when the wizard does its thing, you end up with another wifi router visible by all, exactly like the first. You can then experiment by placing it in a place where it will still see the main one but will be close to where you need better reception. The criticism that it hogs access to 2 outlets can be remedied by the fact that you can use a flexible extension cord and place it anywhere. Experiment and you might find a great place, hidden but ensuring great reception (I get 75% to 90% in a place where I had 35% to 45%)

Cons: instructions a bit confusing at first

Pros: see my original review

Cons: see my original review

Other Thoughts: As a follow up to my original review, after upgrading to w8.1 I noticed it was taking a lot of time to shut down and the power up was greeted by a windows message indicating a crash etc... The shutdown was sometimes 10 minutes, during which it was not even possible to restart the laptop. Long story short, a lot of time wasted downgrading to w8.0, re-installing from scratch etc... finally the 'crash' bug was always there (linked to some unsuccessful preparation w8 does to speed up the boot, I think) -- W8 being so horrible and the laptop so frustrating with that bug, finally I had to install W7. To save time for others who want to do the same, it seems that you need to remove absolutely all the partitions otherwise w7 will not work. W8 does not play nice with others. Don't try half measures, only a complete wipeout will succeed. You will find all the drivers for W7 on Acer's site, fortunately. If this rig wasn't for the spouse, I'd have put Linux 10 times sooner, [w complete reformatting] and I'd have saved many hours trying to salvage a windows install. bottomline, great hardware at that price, horrible OS. I egg removed from my original assessment because the shutdown crash bug will happen to others, I'm sure.
