Careful of ABG or N, and no. of antennas,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mohu Bounce Wifi Enhancer (Personal Computers)
Have to agree with a previous reviewer here who had problems using this product with his N Router. From my pre-purchase communication with a Mohu rep, I found out that it DOES work with N routers, just that the router must be of 2.4GHz type and not 5.0GHz (dual band). Since my D-Link DIR-655 is 2.4GHz, I was happy to find that out. And then referring to the other reviewer, I asked the rep if the Mohu works with routers with 3 antennas and not just with those with 1 or 2. The answer I got was that the Mohu works with routers with "multiple" antennas. "Great!" I thought, and put in the order. I receive it, and....it did NOTHING to improve my Wifi signal. So I take a look at the Owners' Quick Guide or something like it that came with the unit and it says..."this works with routers with 1 or 2 antennas." Since the number 2 counts as "multiple," I guess the rep was not totally wrong, but when I asked about the antennas, I was pretty clear about 1 or 2 antennas vs. 3. Any way, I was really hoping the Mohu would improve the Wifi signal for me, but back it goes, in part due to the rep who could have done a better job of checking the requirements for use...

Maybe he/she was also mistaken about it working with N routers? At the product page here and at their website, they say: "Performance on 802.11n routers not guaranteed." Even though my router is 2.4ghz only and two antennae, I was about to get one, but now I had better not.
BTW, I don't know if they did at the time of your review, but at their website now there's a 'Compatibility chart' that says it's only for 2.4ghz routers.
