1 out of 5 eggs Think Twice! 04/26/2013

This review is from: ASUS WL-330N 5-in-1 Wireless-N150 Mobile Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Pros: Small, light weight, and reasonably priced for what you get.

Cons: Now for the negative stuff....I purchased this device in hopes of increasing my wireless signal coverage at home. I also wanted to utilize it to boost my connection at work as it is an open source. However, upon receiving the device there were MAJOR problems with it right out of the box. For starters, the configuration is SO buggy that you have to log in, re-log in, and LOG in again to the repeater's configuration settings. After you finally get the ability to configure the device (You will spend 10-20mins just trying to log into it), you will notice that the wireless signal reception is very poor. I compared the device with my cell phone's wireless adapter and my cellular phone picks up twice the signal this device does. I tested it with the cell phone further away from my wireless access point and placed the Asus repeater closest to the WAP with the same results. I contacted Asus customer support to resolve the login/settings issue and had to wait 30mins on hold before I was able to get a tech representative. He and I confirmed that the device had the latest firmware (It did), made several adjustments and finally got it to work. However, after I spent almost 2 hours on the phone I did not even mention the poor wireless signal reception issue. I have used this device for two days now and it still has issues with login and settings management. The wireless signal reception has also not improved. I recommend that you STEER CLEAR of this device and purchase another brand, but DO NOT purchase Asus WL-330N!!!! Their customer support is poor, and the quality of this product has defiantly pushed me towards other manufacturers. I will not purchase another Asus product.

NETGEAR WPNT121 RangeMax 240 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 240Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Install was a breeze along with the firmware update that was available on the NETGEAR website. Range of this thing combined with a Range Max router is outstanding. Even with a regular router b/g it's distance is much better than your standard wireless adapter.

Cons: It is a very high priced piece of equipment.

5 out of 5 eggs Anti-Virus Software 02/05/2007

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Ultimate for System Builders Single Pack DVD

Pros: Just to give some of y'all the heads up on the Anti-virus software problem. Avast Professional Edition Version 4.7 works GREAT with VISTA 32 & 64 bit. It also has PUSH updating available. Do a Google search for AVAST and you should be able to find it. Hope this helps!! Great OS! NEWEGG ROCKS!!!

Cons: None.
