Excellent range, Very happy with my RTA15
The design of the unit is very good and the product is more sturdy than the pictures look. I like the smooth glass like cover of the router. Very good touch. You dont get that impression when you look at the pictures but the product looks better and feels better in person.
Overall very happy and highly recommended.
Easy to set up, great improvement
In conclusion, if you are looking for stupid fast speeds and want something that is a "plug and play" style with minimal set up or tech knowledge needed this is a good product. If you aren't looking to make a proverbial fortress of Nerd then this would be a good choice for an upgrade.
Inexpensive, High routing throughput
Of course, you can generate your own performance charts to compare different devices. I found the performance comparison between the BR-6478AC (black triangle) with the D-Link DIR-850L (blue triangle) to be very interesting. Both use the same RealTek chipsets, so why does the Edimax consistently outperform the D-Link? Perhaps D-Link will have a firmware upgrade that will bring the 850L up to the performance levels of the Edimax.
Great little device
bought this primarily as a repeater for my home network and it works great. It was simple to set up and I had it extending my network to the corners that were previously dead in no time. I have not tried other modes but did browse though the admin console and it looks very robust. The only con I can think of is that if you want to switch modes from repeater or bridge to router mode, you have to reset the router to factory defaults (as far as I can tell from the docs.)
Versatile, Portable, Good value for money
We tested all the features and were not disappointed at all. For example, in one test we tried extending the wireless range of our existing setup by setting the Satechi to "Repeater Mode". There is a wireless "black hole" area at the other end of the building from our main wireless router, that only gets 2 out of 5 bar reception on our smartphones. We plugged it into a nearby power socket and set it up to the existing network. Our smartphones showed 5 bars immediately!
Best router for home or business very affordable
This router makes a huge difference especially when using VOIP phones. A no brainer. Allows for two separate IP addresses to use the Internet. Perfect for a dental or medical office where internal Internet and waiting room Internet must remain separate.
USB port for 3G/4G failover, Snappy interface
The Cisco RV215W Wireless-N VPN Router offers security-conscious small businesses a VPN server, wired and wireless networking, and firewall in one compact router. It falls short of being a great business-class router because of limited features and incremental improvements.
Will add about 300 feet to your wifi signal. Great!
If you are looking to extend your wifi signal about 100-150 feet, then this might help you. You locate this 100-150 feet away. Plug it into any AC outlet, near the area where you are getting a weak signal from your wireless router. It will capture your wifi signal and rebroadcast it, another 100-150 feet, for a total of around 300 ft. Not to bad.
So, if your current wifi signal doesn't reach that far, this will fill the bill.
Intuitive router with a touch-screen interface
Although the Almond lacks features such as gigabit ethernet that are now commonplace, it makes up for this with its accessible interface. We're looking forward to the faster, more advanced model with more ports and more wireless options, but the same simple design, and thankfully this is exactly what Securifi has planned.
Stylish, unqiue design, Both router & wireless bridge
The Securefi Almond deserves great credit for turning our initial suspicions around. What looked like an underspecified router with a gimmick is actually a breakthrough in simple, usable home networking. Its ability to function as both router and wireless extender is also ingenious and gives it a second life since it can be bought as the former then in time become the latter.
Despite this there are undeniably some specification shortcomings.
Great portable travel router
This little portable router worked perfectly, with the setup minimal. Only thing missing was a case or pouch to carry it.
I went to Las Vegas recently with my Nexus 7 tablet, which does not have a wired ethernet port. I also assumed that some of the hotels in Vegas still had wired internet connections in their rooms. My stay was at the Monte Carlo, which only has the wired connection in the room.
Useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection
TP-Link's TL-MR3020 is a useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection, and it offers very good value in comparison to similar products. We found consistent and reliable performance in our tests. The router isn't locked to a mobile network, although it's worth checking that your USB dongle is compatible before you buy by going to the TP-Link website and searching for 3G/3.75G USB Modem Compatibility List.
Works ok but short life on 1st unit
Received this modem with my upgraded Century Link service in Dec 2012. It died on 3/2/13. I was using it for 15 minutes, turned away for 10 minutes, came back to it and it had died. No power light and no connection (there was a light behind the Century Link logo so the power supply worked). I am leasing this modem so CenturyLink replaced it. I am worried about the life of this modem - glad I was leasing it.
I set this up in about 10 minutes. I find any time I adjust my wireless network, I have to take a couple of minutes to get my bearings, but this device really is easy to install. I now can use my iPad and laptop with a much stronger signal in a "dead zone" of my house. This device is small and white so it looks fine on the wall. The price is very fair. I highly recommend this booster.
Easy set up, easy to move, bonus night light
I'm impressed by how quickly this range extender was to set up. When I removed it from the box, I saw the ethernet port on the bottom and instantly groaned. I thought I was going to have to crawl behind my computer, grab a spare CAT5 and plug it in just to set it up as a WIRELESS extender. Fortunately, I bothered to take a glance at the instructions, and found that you do not actually have to connect this via Ethernet (though I appreciate that it's an option!)
