I bought two of these, one to use as a wireless adapter and one as a repeater. My primary wireless router is a Dlink DIR-622 running the original 1.11 firmware.

Initial setup is fairly easy. The manual is TERRIBLE but you really don't need it for basic setup. Out of the box, or after a hard reset, the device is in "Gateway Mode" with it's DHCP server active and ready to hand out addresses in the 192.168.1 subnet. Connect it to a PC's ethernet port, open your browser to [...] and you get the configuration screen. From there, it is easy to choose one of the other (3) modes and make a connection to your wireless network.

If you want to make additional configuration changes to other parameters, it gets harder. Once you switch from Gateway mode to one of the other (3), the device no longer acts as a DHCP server for the ethernet port; rather, it effectively becomes a device with a static IP of 192.168.1.220. To make additional configuration changes, you must open your PC's TCP/IP settings and change from DHCP (i.e., "obtain an IP address automatically") to a static address (i.e., "use the following IP address") in the 192.168.1 range. Only then can you again open your browser and use [...] to access the device.

I setup the first unit in "Adapter mode", configured it for wpa2 and then connected it to my Dish Network 622 dvr. Everything connected and worked perfectly.

I have a large house with my wireless router at the North end, so signal quality at the South end of the house is poor. I configured the second wl-330ge for "Repeater mode" and placed it near the center of my house. Devices in the South end now get excellent signal quality from the centrally located wl-330ge repeater. Devices that used to get 6mbps now hit 35mbps.

My wireless router is in the basement with limited coverage for the 2nd floor and the patio. So my aim was to expand my wireless network coverage. ASUS WL-330gE proved best value and has several functions one of which is to expand the wireless network (labeled as Repeater mode). Now I have an excellent coverage all over my property.
The following are the steps I did to set it up:
1. Power on your WL-330gE through the attached USB power cord.
2. Connect the WL-330gE to your laptop through an Ethernet (RJ45) cable.
3. Disconnect your computer from internet/router. (Wireless off or unplug Ethernet cable)
4. Open the Internet browser in your computer and type in 192.168.1.220 in the
address box. Type admin for ID and admin for password.
5. Select Repeater tab
6. From the available wireless devices select yours enter your password and connect.
7. Click on the advanced setting at the lower left corner and select IP config then select Yes for get IP Automatically.
8. Click apply then logout.
9. Disconnect your ASUS from the computer. Find a central location in your property and connect the device to the power outlet. You do not need to connect it to the net work or a computer

My main reason for getting this was because I had trouble getting certain devices to work with Vista 64 Bit. I had a USB wifi stick that worked great under XP, but was unstable in Vista. So I didn't want to get another USB device and be disappointed when I upgrade my system again. Well this device does it all and I'd definitely would get more of these if I need to hook it up to anything else.

The coolest part is that you can have it hooked to your computer via ethernet and in the same time allow other devices to piggyback on it via wifi on the same connection. So why would this be useful? Well let's say you are in a hotel and paying for wireless internet service and you could share that connection with your friends or coworkers by connecting to your device. So you can pretty much split the bill amongst each other instead of each of you paying for your own connection. Another way it can be used is to give your home pc a wireless connection and in the same time expand the range of your wifi by becoming a repeater in the same time (hotspot mode).

I do want to note that if you set it to repeater mode only then you can't get internet with ethernet. So if you want a hybrid mode then hotspot mode is the best way to go and plus you don't need to fiddle with ip addresses. You can switch it to bridge mode, but it makes it harder to switch to other networks if your ip changes. The device's ip is 192.168.1.220 and let's say you connect to a host with an ip address of 128.5.6.1. Well what happens is the ip will change in bridge mode (example 128.5.6.34) and you won't be able to connect to the device (current ip of device 192.168.1.220) unless you change the device's ip to match the current ip address range (128.5.6.x).

I LOVE IT! It's about the size of a deck of cards. It can be powered via a USB connection. The device and the USB connector don't get hot to the touch. It doesn't hog my CPU when it's connected. My only complains are that the instructions are too simple and in its gateway/hotspot configuration it wouldn't show me the hotspot's capture portal (the login screen you see in hotel and cafe hotspots), so I couldn't authenticate my connection. That's why I give it 4 stars.

To make you give it 5 stars, I include supplemental instructions. Below, is what I did to set it up and to make surfing more secure. Don't be scared by the length of the instructions because every router requires similar number of steps.

-------------------------------------------
OPEN THE CONFIGURATION SCREEN
-------------------------------------------
* Connect the USB connector and the ethernet cable to your laptop
* Open a browser (eg IE, Safari, Firefox) and enter the device's IP address in the browser's address bar and press enter. The device's IP and MAC address are on a sticker in the device.
* A popup window will ask for the username and password. Enter the word admin in both text fields.

-------------------------------------------
SWITCH FROM CHINESE TO ENGLISH
-------------------------------------------
* The default language for this device is Mandarin (Chinese). Select the first item in the top right dropdown for English.

-------------------------------------------
SAVE YOUR CONFIGURATION
-------------------------------------------
* Click on Advanced Settings and then on System Setup and then Setting Management.
