"Great Product, Don't Hesitate to try! Supberd signal (measured 350ft)"4.5 starson by leyungtai
Pros: G710 has a built-in SSID WEBClient, Intuitive Setup Wizard. 128 Encryption Capable. Great Distance Connection(measured 350ft crossing 4 walls) and great WLAN signal(40ft measured crossing 5 walls)
Summary: I was tired of the Linksys WRE54g continually dropping the signal therefore I replaced it with the DWL-G710. I found alot of Positive Reviews compared to the Linksys WRE54G, so I gave the G710 a shot. The G710 does drop the signal but rarely, the actual measured distance between the G710 Range Expander and the Wireless 2WIRE router is 350ft, crossing 4 standard residential walls. The WRE54G does VERY, VERY, VERY poorly for the same distance and location.
Setup with a 2WIRE router requires you to change the G710's ip to 192.168.1.30 instead of the default 192.168.0.30 address. After the device restarts you can access it at the 192.168.1.30 address.
The following are superb products as well!
1. D-Link DWL-G630(802.11g wireless adapter)
2. D-Link DWL-514+(802.11b/g router)
3. D-Link DWL-900AP+(still works great after 6 years)
4. Linksys WRTG-54G(router)
From firsthand experience, I highly discourage you from the following products:
1. Linksys WUSB54G(usb 802.11g adapter)
2. Linksys WRE54G, even after a highly technical setup, it has poor signal to AND from client AND router
