* This is a great (very) little piece of hardware from a functionality standpoint. It has a nice Web interface that's fairly straightforward and most of the same options and functions as the "big boys".
* At $17 or so, the price is definitely right.
* It gives me a good, known SSID to program into my EyeFi cards.
* I used it constantly during a 4-day trip and it worked flawlessly.
Cons (minus 2 stars):
* I connected the Ethernet port (WAN) to my local LAN so I could do the initial set-up as a router/AP and happened to do a scan of the network (using Fing on my Android phone) and found it had TCP 23 (Telnet) open on the WAN side - which would be the public/Internet side when actually in use. I was able to telnet into the device using the admin credentials and access a command line prompt. Fortunately, I was able to use port redirection to send the port to a non-existent IP address. This could potentially be a real security problem. I probably should have taken off a lot more stars, but I really like this box and the fix was very easy. I may also try using a port filter with the firewall functionality, but I knew the port redirection would work and I was in a hurry to get ready for my trip.
* No custom firmware (dd-wrt, tomato, etc) available yet
* No links available for OEM firmware updates (that I could find)
Overall (3 stars): I like it and I plan to keep using it, but I think the firmware should be fixed so that it doesn't have telnet potentially open to the Internet.
First off, you do not have to input a static IP to any of your network adapters (wired or wireless). The default setting on the router has dhcp server turned on. You should receive an IP of 192.168.16.10x (x=a value 0-9). To get it to be a Bridge, switch it to WIFI mode in the front. Then power it thru your usb. Wait 2min for it to boot up. Plug the network cable to the mini router and your computer lan network card. Wait 1min for your machine to get an IP address. Open IE and go to 192.168.16.1 and login as admin/admin. You will now have a somewhat different menu if you take a look at the Wireless Setting on the left. Here you can go to Site Survey and have it detect your WIFI that you want to connect or bridge to. Select the SSID that you want to bridge to and enter the encryption key (if you have one). Once done, go to Link Status on the left menu to ensure that your link is up.
Also, you want to create a Profile for you Bridge mode. This will ensure that even when you router is rebooted, your bridge profile will still be active. You can do this by going to the Profile menu on the left, click Add and enter the info. If you do not do this, your bridge connection will be lost if the router is rebooted.
Hope this helps others who are banging their head against the wall trying to get this working as a bridge...
1 Star for the documentation. (1min away from returning this item)
1 Star for ease of use for Bridging...
5 stars for ease of use as a AP.
5 Stars for it being a mini router powered via usb that is both AP and Bridge...

Follow these instructions:
1. Reset the whole thing, hold the reset for 30 seconds so its a clean slate.
2. Set the switch in the front to AP, connect via. wireless, I believe it was WA_1 or something similar. Enter 192.168.16.1 in your browser.
3. Once you log in with "admin/admin", go to the Mode setting, change it to Ethernet Adapter.
4. Skip the site survey, it doesn't work. Go to the "profile" page, click Add, now enter the SSID (name) of your Network, enter the password, click Apply.
5. After it saves this, check the box to the left of the name, or just make sure there is a green check mark there.
6. It should connect now, look at the "status" page to see if it is, mine worked right away.
7. Once you make sure it connected, disconnect the power, NOW switch the AP/WIFI switch to WIFI.
8. Turn it back on, should be working perfect.
(9). I turned on Wireless N Aggregation, helps speed-wise.
I am using mine to connect my OnLive Microconsole, if you know about OnLive it is cloud gaming, streams the entire game HD, it has worked absolutely perfect so far.
Hope this helps.
For the price, this thing can't be beat. It's your basic generic cheap Asian router, but miniaturized to the size of a credit card (with a bump for the ethernet port and antenna). It's really tiny. The included firmware supports everything you'd expect from a full-size router - in fact, it really makes me wonder what you're paying for in a full size router! The last one I bought (a Netgear) felt like a big casing and a lot of air.
Of course, you do usually get wired switching in a full size router; this little thing's just wireless, so it's only got one RJ-45 port for your internet connection, and a mini-USB port on the other side. That's another great thing about this router; it can be USB powered, and the included power adapter just connects to the included mini to standard USB cable (if you've owned an Android phone recently, you may be familiar with this). But you can also use your PC to power it.Read more ›
