Review Date: 04/03/12
Cons: Sometimes drops connection

Pros: Easy Install, Compact, easy setup Wizard
Asus has come out with a really good piece of hardware i really like this for extending my range of my wireless. I would highly recommend this to anyone. very easy to setup

Review Date: 11/30/11
Cons: Instructions are poor. Shipped with firmware that doesn't work.

Pros: Small, included USB power cord.
I bought one of these and wasted a couple of hours trying to get it to work in adapter mode. I ended up taking the first one back. It ships with firmware, which seems to only have the gateway mode working. It can't find networks in any of the other modes. Upgrading the firmware to doesn't help. I had to downgrade the firmware to to get the other modes to work. The starter guide and user manual are both pretty useless. Hopefully they will provide some updated firmware that actually works.

Cons: Gets very hotCables are two shortNo PoE

Pros: Does what I need
I got this one sale on NCIX eBay outlet. I needed an network adapter for my Blu-Ray player in my front room. This thing works great for doing just that. I have it plugged into my Blu-Ray Player using the very short RJ45 cable and for its USB power I have it plugged in the USB storage plug.This thing could be a bit lower in price, for it's size it shouldn't need a USB cable for power as PoE should of worked.And it gets very hot fast.

Cons: N/A

Pros: Very Simple SetupSmall unitEverything IncludedDoes what it says
Super simple setup. Plug into computer, put the ip address listed in the manual (or on the back of the device)into your web browser, login, and choose what you want it to do. Then it takes about 30 seconds to configure and you are good to go. Works 100% with my Xbox 360!

Review Date: 08/03/11
Cons: had problems setting repeater mode. My laptop can detect and connect to the network but cannot access the internet.

Pros: portable fits in pocket of laptop bag. Comes will all the cables/connectors you need. Multi function (Access Point/router/etc).
Great for traveling. Used it always in hotel rooms. One of the most important accessory in my laptop bag.

Review Date: 07/09/11
Cons: none

Pros: Small form factor, easy to hide, looks cool
bought this to increase the range on my dir-615, its in my basement so i had to use this to get a better signal upstairs. definitely the right product for what i intended to do with it, will buy another if i have too.

Review Date: 06/14/11
Cons: none yet , waiting on rebate

Pros: small, price , supports WPA2
Picked this up on sales and rebate as mainly a repeater working with my Linksys WRT160 v2 ( ya on Linksys FW) and it works liek a charm with WPA2 private key. good coverage and performance is 17+ Mbps down and 2Mbps up on Shaw so not mcuh penatly versus wired.

Review Date: 01/17/11
Cons: Repeater mode does not work. Wireless strength is very weak.

Pros: Cheap. Small.
Repeater mode does not work.I set it up as repeater mode after hours to only discover to connect to it you must reconnect your wireless device to the network. This means every time I change rooms, I must disable my wireless the re-enable it, not a true repeater. This is because the device does not do MAC address cloning! To enabled MAC address cloning, you set it to hot spot mode as I did via Asus' online manual. This BRICKED the device! It no longer works. Sent for a refund!

Review Date: 09/02/10
Cons: None that I know of

Pros: Size is compact, price is decent for what you get
This is the second of these units that I've purchased.. in both scenarios I needed an access point, as in, a means to connect the device to an already existing wireless network to give network access to another device, in my case, the device is a TV Media Box that needs connectivity to the network without the means of using ethernet.These Asus units work pretty well.. they are not the highest quality devices ever, but their interface is as simple as it comes and it is easy to get working right out of the box. Transfer speeds are decent, so for any HD streaming they are certainly not going to be sufficient, but for regular audio or video streaming will work a charm..I haven't had any trouble yet with them either, so for the price they work pretty well and are versatile units that can be used in several modes. Overall great handy little unit!

Review Date: 08/29/10
Cons: has power supply at the plug end reducing portability

Pros: mutiple usesportableeasy setup
Easy setup, pretty much just plug it in and use it. I have been using it as a wireless card for my desktop for a year and a half even though i should just get an internal one. Bought it for a decent price, and the mail in rebate money actually came.

Review Date: 07/22/10
Cons: Useless in hotpost mode

Pros: Small and I assume works well in modes other than the one I want.
While the device seems fine, it is useless in hotspot mode (which is what i bought it for). While it can connect to a hotspot, there is no way to get to the capture portal that almost all hotspots have (i.e. click here to agree to our terms or whatever). Very disappointing as making something small enough to travel is great, but only if you can actually use it.

Review Date: 07/05/10
Cons: no A support

Pros: b/g supportcarry caseUSB powered/AC Adapter
bought this to use as a basic reapeter for my cell phone wifi havent tried connecting to it yet & might use it as a bridge when i have to setup my laptop in my basement.

Review Date: 05/18/10
Cons: no on/off key, menu has no details.

Pros: easy setup, small
use it as an adapter to turn my Lexmark network printer to wireless printer, work great. good

Cons: as a repeater it is kind of useless

Pros: Works well a a gatway
I bought this thinking I would use it as a repeater when outside.. well it is not this products fault but it's kind of pointless to have a repeater attached to your computer as the signal is already degraded by the time it reaches you. Works well as a gateway for multiple connections to one wifi hotspot however.. for this use it makes sense. Just don't bother if all you want is a repeater, there are far better options out there for not much more.

Review Date: 04/14/10
Cons: An extra ethernet port would be nice, need 11N

Pros: Compact, multi function, usb or adapter powered
I use this as a wireless repeater for weak spots in my home. The wireless reception on it is better than my iphone.Also tried using it as a wireless router and it works well.I wish it has one extra ethernet port, so then you can share a wired connection between a wireless and non-wireless device

Review Date: 03/27/10
Cons: Only one ethernet port

Pros: Very compact
I bough this on sale for a good price and with a rebate offer in additon. The net price made it a very attractive deal. It is very compact which is the reason I picked it up. It should come in handy when travelling, especially where there is limited or no wireless available. ie only via ethernet. I found the basic setup quite simple. Have not tried to set up with security yet. Would buy again.

Review Date: 03/24/10
Cons: dont know any yet

Pros: Good price, Multifunctions, Easy set up, Works awsome
I bought this, and set it up as an access point. I use an air card on my main PC, and then use Internet connection shareing, and this, attached to the network card....I can now use any PC wirelessly in the home, shareing my air card, a hella deal....

Review Date: 03/20/10
Cons: NONE

Pros: Price, size, performance
Took me around 5 mins. to set it up as repeater. Excellent product, worth every penny! I have this before Zio WLB5254AP Wireless Access Point 802.11B/G and it's garbage! Cheap, but garbage. I bought the Zio for $19 or less when it was on sale. I'm throwing out the Zio.

Review Date: 03/03/10
Cons: None

Pros: Small Works good.
I have purchased this for a small netbook to share network access. as far as I know it seems to be working correctlySometimes it will drop  the network connection but other then that it works good.

Review Date: 02/19/10
Cons: none so far

Pros: ease of setupcompact sizeprinted manuals
Only had this little unit a few hours but I'm impressed already. I bought this to replace a inconsistent WAP54G AP I had modified to print to a remote Brother network multifunction printer. Had it up and running in adapter mode inside of 5 minutes and I'm printing and scanning without issue. Highly recommended at this point

Review Date: 02/19/10
Pros: - Small- Multiple Uses- Simple Setup- USB or AC powered- Comes with soft case- Low price
I bought one of these to use as a repeater. I had to update  the firmware on the other router before the WL-330GE would work with it, so keep this in mind if you have any problems. It was extremely simple to get working. This is an amazing product at a very reasonable price.

Cons: kind of hot;

Pros: excellent coverage range in repeater mode;Extremely easy installation;Cool outlook;
Bought this as a repeater to extend the wireless coverage range, too me 5 minutes to set it up and then it works excellent. My dad's computer now have a very stablize and excellent signal.Only problem I have is this thing is kind of hot, but still I will highly recommand this ap to any family got a huge house.

Review Date: 02/11/10
Cons: Heats up quicklyIt's as big as an ipodrebate for a citi visa = badethernet cable that comes with it is tiny

Pros: Connection is very good
Pics made it look very small, but it's pretty big. I've been wanting something to take with me for travel and this is the solution! 4 modes to use in one device makes it practical to use in a room full of people with no wifi.

Cons: none

Pros: Small and convenient.
I use this as my travel router. Just plug it into a hotel internet connection and voila! Easy and convenient, and gives me wireless virtually anywhere I go.

Review Date: 12/10/09
Cons: Has some issues accessing it when it changes the IP to whatever it is assigned by the router

Pros: AWESOME, does exactly what it should....most of the timeVery compact, nice case (i don't worry about it breaking)Does the job.Many people can connect at once AND it can share an internet connection which is great
I initially bought this for some casual gaming at school....cough cough (or studying...cough cough).... We haven't noticed any significant lag or connection issues.I find it has some issues when acting as a repeater or adapter, your best bet is to just keep it in the access point mode, i find that works the best.
