Router update 05/06/2013
I had a defective unit when I wrote my first (very frustrated)
review. EnGenius called me in response. They really want their customers to be satisfied and I admire their dedication to that.
The replacement unit has been functioning fine since I received it.
The detachable antennas are plus should I want to buy or make ones with more gain.
I don't find the signal strength great enough to be called "extra range" though. Both transmitter power and receive sensitivity are required for this. I'm unable to evaluate the receiver sensitivy but the transmitter is just average compared with my LinkSys 1500 or 1200 routers.
The default settings are definitely set to be plug and play, but there is no security.
It will be open to anyone until you change that.
Every time you change a setting it takes about 15 seconds to update, a bit long.
A firmware update may change that.
Both EnGenius and Newegg were great. I called newegg on a Monday, got my RMA and return label by Tuesday, sent it off same day and received a new unit on Thursday. I helps being local!
Wish I had waited to do my first review of a defective unit :)
I think that with the Newegg price and almost free shipping (.99) it is a good value.
