Great deal for price and size 5/16/2014 8:56:41 AM

Pros: I used this while living in a one-room apartment, and it worked great for my needs. The device itself is very small, yet handled 3 devices well. For travel and small living spaces, this will do a great job.

Cons: My connection dropped on occasion (3-4 times per month), but a quick reset of the router resolved the problem.

Overall Review: The router itself is lighter than the cables you connect to it, so it doesn't really sit flat on any surface (especially if your ethernet cables are kinked or twisted). Mine always hovered a few centimeters off the surface of my desk (a minor inconvenience for an OCD person like myself).

Pros: Small, easy setup and that is all

Cons: It was configured as range extender, works good for about 30 min and lost connection with LAN. Tried reset to default setting by pushing Reset/\ button. No avail. No computer can connect with router using LAN port and Ethernet cable.
Now it is only a small red brick.Will RMA it.

Overall Review: I will give Edimax one more try because I have good experience with its other wireless products.

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the difficulty you are experiencing. We appreciate your feedback and would like to help you solve the problem.

Please observe the LEDs on the nano router. Its PWR LED should be solid on. Its WLAN LED should be blinking. If you plug in Ethernet cable to either WAN on LAN port, then WAN or LAN will be on too.

To reset the router to default settings, please hold the Reset clip for 15 seconds until you see the PWR LED turn off briefly.

If you need any further assistance on our products, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly.

New firmware v1.18 breaks WISP 3/5/2014 11:43:32 AM

Pros: I've had the BR-6258n for a few months. I have tested the WISP a couple of times, connecting it to my home WiFi and also my work WiFi. It works very well, and I did not have any issues.

Yesterday, I visited Edimax's website and saw there was a new firmware update. My current version is 1.14 and the new firmware is 1.18. I downloaded the firmware and updated the device. After the update, I was not able to use the WISP anymore. Each time I configure the WISP and click apply, the router reboots and goes back to Dynamic IP setting. I even reset the router to factor default and re-configured WISP, but I still did not have Internet connection. I e-mailed tech support, but have yet to get a response.

I decided to downgrade back to v1.14. As soon as I did that, I was able to setup WISP again.

Cons: New firmware is flaky and support not that responsive.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

Thank you very much for contacting us for support.

We have exchanged several emails. We also did repeated tests on our lab. Unfortunately, we can not reproduce the issue in v1.18 firmware. We manually enter the case-sensitive SSID, correct channel number, and correct wireless security password. BR-6258nL has no problem to connect our Edimax WiFi routers.

Sorry that we do not have the models of your routers for testing. We will continue to work with you. We will do more tests after receiving the configuration file from you.

Best regards,

Great Product. 2/24/2014 11:45:24 AM

Pros: Respectable range and speeds.

Cons: Range could always be better but again, it's respectable.

Overall Review: This product is simple and it works, that's why I am giving it 5 stars. I need a WAP for my 3rd shift job as there was non available and I wanted to be able to use my iPad. Plugged this bad boy in, used the wizard, and I was up and running in no time.

Great Value for Faster Speed 2/13/2014 8:40:27 PM

Pros: Great price
Doubled download speed as a repeater.
So small it is invisible.

Cons: Does not seem to recognize devices other than computers and tablets. Can't access wireless printer.

Overall Review: Can't beat the price. Set up was easy. I'm using it as a extender in the family room which is the opposite end of the house from the router. Tested download speeds with and without. With the extender, download speeds more than doubled.

Great repeater 2/11/2014 4:11:57 AM

Pros: Have used this in a hotel that only had a wired internet connection, as well as another hotel that had spotty wi-fi in the rooms. It works beautifully to address both problems. As a repeater, it was easy to set up and gave my phone, tablet, and laptop the needed wi-fi connections in all cases.

Cons: None.

Dead after 1 year 1/18/2014 11:17:17 AM

Pros: It worked for 1 year as a wireless router/repeater.

Cons: It died after 1 year.

Overall Review: This is really disappointing. When I first got this router, I used it as a wireless repeater for about 6 months at my condo. Later on, I brought this router over to my parents place as they had switched to DSL and I needed to get wifi working at their place. It was used for approx. 6 months at their house until I finally got them a proper router with more than 1 LAN port and wifi capability.

This week I decided to hook it back up as a wireless repeater. When I changed the settings accordingly to the wireless repeater settings, it wouldn't connect to my wifi network so I decided to do a reset using the left button on the side of the router. Since then, I have been unable to login to the router configuration page, it is super slow and when the page loads up after 1 minute or so... it just goes blank. Very disappointed in EdiMax and will never purchase a product from them again.

P.S. I got the black version of this router from newegg back in Dec 2012

Manufacturer Response:
Dear customer,

We are sorry for the issue you are experiencing.

The nano router has only two ports. The Blue Port is for Internet connection. The Yellow port is for local computer.

Can you please make sure the computer plugged into the yellow port so that your computer can receive an IP address from the nano router. If the computer is plugged into the blue port, the computer can not get into the setup page.

We provide 2 years warranty service for our products.

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our tech support at (408)988-6092 or write an email to " support@edimax.us " directly. Our support team will gladly assist you.

Best regards,
Edimax Tech Support Team
