Got this unit, set it up with little complication... unit didn't seem to set up right when I plugged it into a computer on the network, so I plugged it into the router instead and it set up just fine. Only complaint is that there seems to be a short in the AC socket on the unit itself (I feel relatively confident that it's there rather than in the wire/plug on the adapter). Unit does not receive power unless pressure is placed on the side of the plug. Rather than dealing with a return on an item that's usually out of stock, I simply wrapped a rubber band around the AC plug and the base of the antenna to apply constant pressure to the AC plug, and now it works just fine. Not a prime solution, but really the most I feel like doing at this time. BTW, I'm using this for a DirecTV HR20 DVR to get it on my wireless network, if anyone is curious. Has been doing a fine job the last three weeks.

the unit was DOA. returned for a refund. got my money back in 3 weeks from geeks.com. went to the store and bought a new one since this one was refurbished. dealing with geeks.com was alright. i thought it would be difficult but it was not. would buy from them again. besides all these issues, this unit does the job.
