A few things to note during setup:
0) Setup has 2 parts: a) Initial Setup; b) Final setup - this requires you enter the setup utility 2 times.
1) If you hide your wireless SID (like I do), you will not be able to use WPS ~ I think this is a known fact but stating in event you are not aware (and to save you some head banging)
2) Connect the device directly to your computer via an ethernet cable. Don't connect through a router or you will not be able to get into the configuration screen of the device
3) Suggest you immediately update the firmware once you are able to connect to the device (prior to full configuration). Firmware upgrade will clear out all settings so do it first
4) After initial configuration (which makes the bridge known to your router and network) don't forget to go back into setup and "configure" the other settings of the bridge such as administrator password, etc.
About the only con I can think of are that the Ethernet cable they supplied with you is pathetically short, like less than 1ft. So you're almost going to have to buy or use your own Ethernet cables. Also, they supply you with a software installation CD, which is strange because you don't even need to use any software other than your web browser to set the bridge up.
I even tried pinging the edimax ip address - nothing. Bizarrely, attached computers can see each other still, but not the edimax itself.
It's okay when it works, and generally I enjoy it then, but.... As I type (on my laptop), I am waiting the several hours required for the edimax to start working again. I just can't recommend anyone use it.
