Pros When this system works, it allows you to greatly expand the range of your wireless network. It is especially effective in a house, with many interior walls. Do not try a booster antenna inside a house, as it has no effect. 24/7 knowledgable technical s
Cons 1. Difficult to set up. It took me 2 hours to get the router to work. I had to call technical support to get the repeater running. 2. Both the router and repeater kept dropping the network and had to be reset every few days. 3. The router wireless c
Pros Fairly easy to set up. Reasonably low cost. Tech support was very helpful once you actually get to talk to a tech support person. I have two digital video recorders (ReplayTVs) set up in different rooms and they stream video wirelessly between them pretty
Cons Included manual is very terse about any setup of the repeater that uses it as a bridge (WDS mode). Quality control could be better as the MAC address sticker on the repeater was wrong and I had to call tech support to figure that out. Had to wait about 30
Pros Extremely great range/power without adding additional antennas. SWEET!!!
Cons A little cryptic to setup concerning MAC filtering / briding modes.
Pros I have used this same router and it has served me for 4 years - very reliable, fast and good indoor range
Cons Slightly weak when router is indoor and I am operating outdoor
Summary I have been using this same router for 4 years, disabled SSID broadcast, MAC filtering, wireless encryption, port forwarding.. the lot. All works perfect against different wireless adapters. I fully recommend this product. To get better range I would add the antenna adapter.
Pros The base/repeater package for wireless is a great idea. Lots of wireless options, good switch performance. User help/info links by each configuration option are better than a manual.
Cons Setup is somewhat tedious, until you get used to the interface. Maybe not the strongest signal without the repeater.
