Backdoor Vulnerability

Pros: It's painless to setup and configure.

Cons: It has an un-fixable backdoor vulnerability that allows the attacker to gain access even without a key or password. I've been hacked twice now in a week. The attacker disabled my WPA2 key both times. So the only safe thing I can do is remove it from my network. Wish I hadn't purchased it. I have the right for a personal private network.

bridge setup sucks

Pros: Once it's up and working, it's reliable and painless.

Cons: Look online for instructions for getting it set up as a bridge. The documentation has huge gaps in it.

Other Thoughts: The documentation is pretty abysmal for setting it up as a bridge. It would crash our network if I connected it directly to the network while in bridge mode. I had to set it to AP mode, update the firmware, reboot, configure, reboot, and then configure it as a bridge from a PC that was connected directly to it by ethernet cable and had a static IP address.

Frustration Tester

Pros: none

Cons: Very difficult to work with, less than 1/2 of my devices can attach to it, it stops working after three active devices and needs to be factory reset. Newegg wants you to ship it back for $12 - 1/5th the price of it; many minutes of ridiculous phone menus for support.

Great AP, but challenging installation

Pros: Great range at 2.4/5 GHz
Works well with D-Link 655 router
Guest zone is a great feature
Great price

Cons: Limited instructions
Challenging installation

Other Thoughts: Installation should not have been difficult. I've installed many routers/APs before. Instructions seemed straighforward: connect to computer, plug it in, type in IP address, follow instructions on web-based window. Except that the web-based window never appeared. Lights came on the AP as expected. Switch (in back) had been set to AP 2.4GHz mode by me, and checked and rechecked. Multiple attempts at pressing the reset button and disconnecting power source (as suggested in the instructions) failed to do anything. Instructions suggested "try another computer"; that didn't work either.
So here is what you need to do:
1) before doing anything, make sure WiFi on your (laptop) computer is turned off, or wired on desktop is disconnected.
2) I used a MacBook Air (wireless).
3) Follow the rest of the instructions (connect AP to computer, etc).
4) Make sure to set the channel to something other than your other APs use (reduces interference).
5) Make sure that the subnet mask is the same as router.
6) If you have a D-Link router, expect it to assign the AP a DHCP IP address, even if you choose static AP (once connected to the network).
7) Disconnect from the computer, and connect the AP to the network (either directly or through a hub/switch).
8) Enjoy the improved range.

Note: I did not try the AP in bridge mode.

Continues to work really well, and consistently provides the strongest signal of my 4 routers/APs (including D-Link 655).

Does it's job

Pros: I get good reliable speeds with this thing. Used it to connect my HTPC, PS3, DVR, and Voip over 5ghz N to my router upstairs about 30' away. Even with a lot of signal loss I was streaming high def videos perfectly that wouldn't play correctly at all over 2.4 ghz. At half signal you are going to destroy 2.4 ghz speeds.

Cons: The UI on this thing leaves something to be desired, I took an egg because it is truly bad. Setup can be a pain the first time around for something that should be very simple.
The second egg I docked is from the ac adapter failing after about a year, I had to buy a replacement from radio shack for about 20 bucks. I could easily see people thinking their device died and giving up on it when it was just the power cord.

Other Thoughts: The 5 ghz range is poor but that's standard with all 5 ghz devices. Also nowhere on this thing's description does it say "simultaneous dual band", so why dock eggs for it not being able to? People shouldn't be bashing this device because they are ignorant.

Either-Band, not Dual-Band

Pros: 4 port Gigabit switch - nice feature on an access point.

Cons: I have revision H/W ver B1. It has a switch on the back with which you can select either 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz. What I expect from a Dual Band access point is the ability to both simultaneously. Incidently, the Quick Start manual doesn't mention the 3-position switch. The 3rd position is Bridge. It only says to select Access Point or Bridge.

Other Thoughts: There are no link lights for the network ports. I've never had a network switch that didn't indicate if there was connection or traffic.

Good

Pros: Works as intended. Was a little tough to set up at first but it's working great now. Use it as a connection point for upstairs in the house.

Cons: Instructions could have been a bit easier.
