I'm a software engineer and I've setup many wireless networks in the past. Usually I try to be balanced and objective, but this product has many problems that I don't know where to start.

* The very brief user guide is poorly written and completely useless.

* The software utility that comes with it (installable from a CD) is one of the most poorly written utilities I've seen:

a. unintuitive interface. For example, they have this obscure button "UP/AP" and no explanation in the guide or in the utility of what that means. Buttons are enabled/disabled in a strange way.

b. you keep getting failure messages, and you have to try the same thing several times until it hopefully takes your settings

* Repeated attempts with TWO different networks in my apartment and my sister's house failed, with and without WEP security.

* After hours of trials on my own, I called tech support, spent an hour and half on the phone trying different things, then then the person left or stopped responding.. not sure if he hanged up or what the problem is. Called again, waited on the line again, said that I want to return it and the rep was fine with it. I'm returning it.

The product was not available after I ordered it so I have no opinion of it's performance. It was estimated to be available in March. I may try again to see if it is available then.

They claim that this product will work with any router? Not true, I am an IT professional and I couldn't get this unit to work with my netgear router. The instruction manual says to hold down a button and you magically connect. Of course there is not a shred of information if this magic doesnt happen. After 4 hours with tech support, who must have asked me my name/address/phone/serial number about 8 times as I was taken on a magical ride touring a myriad of complete idiots. They tried to tell me to eliminate all of my network connections, settings, cookies, internet files. What do cookies and TIFs have to do with connecting to a network? Don't waste your time with this.

Of course, you don't know this until you open the box. There is a sheet that advises you to check the website, and it says support is coming. I will return this along with the wireless N router I bought from Belkin. I think I'll stay with D-Link.

I tried to solve the problem of a weak connection in my basement, using a Homegear Powerline adapter. This did not work well in our home. I then considered having Verizon move my FIOS ethernet socket to the basement, but this was more than $100.

In the end I solved the problem by getting one of these range extenders - cheaper than the other solutions, and it works well.
