I recommend this device if you're having trouble getting a network signal in remote parts of your home. I have a Cisco (Linksys) wirelss-N router which I thought would provide the added boost I needed. Although I got a little boost, the signal strength still wasn't what I needed (only 2 out of 5 bars). For under $50, I thought I'd give this little gem a try. In shopping around, other extenders for wireless-N networks were upwards of twice this cost. The Cisco router has a push-button WEP set-up button, as does the EnGenius ranger booster. It automatically configured all the network and security settings. The only thing I had to do was change the IP used by the Engenius device. By default, it uses 192.168.1.2. However, my Cisco router (by default) is set-up with a IP supported range of 192.168.1.100 through 192.168.1.149 (50 devices). After this very minor change, it was all up and running... and I now have 4 out of 5 bars. Even my kid's notice a difference when connecting their Wii, iPod touch MP3 players, and XBOX 360. Even if you had to manually configure the unit, it's not that difficult. The user interface is easy to follow, and the manual on the included CD is pretty good. My reservation in giving all "5" ratings was due to the manual change to work with default settings, and getting only 4 out of 5 bars for the network. I thought I would get 5 bars since the unit is now much closer. Nevertheless, still a good deal.

Product was as advertised. Great price compared to other range extenders. Easy to set up, took about 5 minutes and it works great. I highly recommend this Engenius product. I had the extender in my hand 3 days after ordering from buy.com. What can I say, great price, free shipping, great product and service. I am a happy man.
