Customer Reviews of EnGenius ERB9250 300Mbps Wireless N Range Extender
No issues with this vendor
I just can't get it to boost my wireless signal inside my home. The reset button has broken within the first couple of resets. It just sits there like an expensive paper weight in the first floor of my house blinking like a christmas light decoration.
This Wireless Repeater is Smokin'9/10/2010
I added this device to my home network a few weeks ago. I now have maximum wireless reception in my basement to support Netflix on our Wii. I tried a couple of other repeaters prior to ordering the EnGenius ERB9250. Have not had to reset the unit at all which was a constant problem with other brands along with poor signal. This thing is great!
I was very impressed by this product; the price was great, the setup was as simple as it gets (although I did have to change my IP address to static since it acquired an invalid IP but that took no time at all), and it works better than I could have ever imagined! I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking to extend the range of their network!
Doubled the range of my wireless network.3/16/2010
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.
Doubled my connection signal strength with minimal2/17/2010
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.
