2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: easy setup

Cons: I have had trouble with this unit consistently sending out a signal. More often that not my devices pick up my wireless router instead and receive a very weak signal. When this unit it working properly I can stream Netflix continuously, but more often than not my tv does not pick up the repeater and makes for a very frustrating experience.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to Previous Review

Pros: This has now been up and running for almost a month without a single disconnect. Maybe I got the good one off the assembly line.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: I can't explain the problems others have had, except for maybe some compatibility with other hardware?

1 out of 5 eggsGave me headaches

Pros: Worked fine for about an hour or so...

Cons: Then everyone on wireless could either connect and not get an internet connection or they simply couldn't connect at all. Created a lot of chaos until I realized that it had something to do with the ERB9250. The wireless on it was pretty powerful because people that were much closer to our Aerohive access point were having trouble as well. Once I disconnected the repeater, everyone was back online in less than a minute.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for our practices to help eliminate dead zones in our wireless coverage.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy Setup as Client Bridge

Pros: I wanted this as a client bridge to connect my desktop PC in an upstairs bedroom with the router which is downstairs and at the other end of the house. All I did was power it up next to the router and push the two WPS buttons. Then I carried it up to the bedroom, cabled it to the computer and after about ten seconds I had internet. The download speeds are about the same as I got with the computer plugged directly into the modem, and speedtest pings at 12ms. It seems stable as of this writing, although it has only been up for a few hours. Very pleasantly surprised by how easy this was.

Cons: I first tried the manual setup according to the "quick start" guide, but this would not work. Maybe they need to update the instructions for IE11, as I did not get the screens they were describing, so I gave up and went to WPS install. Not a huge con as the WPS worked so well.

Other Thoughts: I have a Netgear router. I think some of the problems other users have described may be due to compatibility with other hardware, rather than an issue with this product itself.

1 out of 5 eggsNot So Good

Pros: I can't think of any.

Cons: Well, it configured fine, linked to my router and everything worked great...for about an hour. Then none of the wireless clients could connect to anything, router or repeater. Had to unplug the repeater and then clients could connect to the router fine. Wait about an hour, clients lose all connectivity. Power cycle the repeater. Wait an hour, do it again.

Other Thoughts: I'm using an Asus wireless router (love it). Perhaps this repeater will work with an EnGenius router.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Simple to set up, even if you set it up manually. You just connect the ERB9250 to your PC via an Ethernet cable, then launch a web browser and follow the prompts. After that, you can move the device to a good spot that extends your range substantially.

Easy to manage or check the status at any time, simply by logging into the device wirelessly using a web browser. From there you can tweak some of the more advanced settings or change the operating mode from a basic repeater to a client bridge.

Supports WPS one touch setup for the less tech saavy folks out there. Also supports the latest wi-fi encryption technologies to keep your network safe from intruders.

The client bridge mode is useful if you just want to connect one PC to your network that doesn't have a wi-fi expansion card installed.

Does indeed extend your range by quite a bit, especially if you take the time to place it optimally.

Has a low profile and a small footprint, so you can place it anywhere without it getting in your way. It even comes with everything you need to mount it to a wall if desired.

Very affordable for those of us with a tight budget.

Cons: Doesn't support 802.11ac. Considering the cost of the ERB9250 this isn't a huge surprise, but I still would have liked to see support for the latest wi-fi standard as more and more devices are supporting it these days, including all the popular smartphones.

Performance seems to take a bit of a nosedive compared to the transfer rates I see when connected directly to my router. It's not a substantial hit, but it's noticeable nonetheless.

The manual doesn't clearly define what the various LED's on top of the device actually signify. This may confuse some folks.

Speaking of the manual, it's really vague in general and doesn't detail what all the settings are used for. I think they could have done a better job with it.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this product to anyone looking to extend the range of their wi-fi at home with no hassles, provided of course that they don't have more than 5-10 devices that require internet access or require high throughput for streaming HD video and such.

The performance issues, lack of 802.11ac support, and vague documentation are what keep me from giving this product a higher rating. That said, it's still a solid product in its class.

5 out of 5 eggsAn “outstanding value” + winning challenger!

Pros: Head to head competition Amped Wireless SR300 versus EnGenius ERB9250. At a distance, on a PC, the ERB9250 indicated two bars; the SR300 scored a goose egg. Second assay: Using Amped Wireless’s smart phone app, EnGenius scored 86% (-67 dBm) versus Amped’s 76% (-72 dBm).

Manual install is as simple as connecting an Ethernet cable to a computer > cable to the device > type default IP address > follow uncomplicated instructions.

I didn’t have a clue about EnGenius, other than networking. . . After doing a little research, I was impressed, their web site says, “Wireless connectivity solutions for hotels, resorts, high schools, universities, corporate campuses, sports stadiums and arenas. . .” To get an impression of their expertise, go to their web site, click on success stories, enough said.

Before contemplating adding networking equipment, understand what you’re buying (there’re misconceptions). Wireless repeaters and wireless range extenders are the same; they relay Wi-Fi (passing it along) & visa-versa (back). Be aware, the device “needs” to be positioned where there’s a good signal (sweet spot); otherwise, desired results are apt to be compromised.

From a utilitarian point of view, it’s a wireless extension cord. The thing works as advertised; it’s capable of enhancing connectivity into fringe areas significantly.

Cons: Overhyped Client Bridge > Repeaters are customarily placed midpoint; the client bridge (Ethernet wired device, to a wireless network) being part of the package, placed (typically) center rather than at an intended destination point. Practicality wise, you’ll need two of these, one midpoint and a second at the destination: Blu-ray player, set-top box, DVR or game console.

Other Thoughts: Suggestion: Download a Wi-Fi strength app onto your smart phone. Use it to survey placement of this device, be sure placement is within an acceptable signal area - now - take that signal source and place it at that location; make another survey to see what you’re likely to accomplish.

Something worth considering - when - deciding between this and something costing much more, from my perspective, judging from what I’m accustomed to; this is an “outstanding value” + excellent performer.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Super easy to config. I used two to cover a gap in a huge metal stud warehouse and they work great.

Cons: Signal is not the strongest but it could also be the construction of the building that I installed them in. Signal was good through 2 walls at about 60-80 feet

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works and easy setup. Took longer to get it out of the package and find a place for it than it took to get it working.
It has been operating for 5 months with no problems. We now get very good signal where we got only poor signal before. Not as fast as being in the same proximity to the primary router but that is typical with this kind of unit. Can't beat it for the value, if we had wanted to pay for the added bandwidth we could have dropped $100 more.

Cons: It does cut bandwidth. It is White, not so easy to hide it in plain sight.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't say it was so easy that a Basset Hound could get it set-up and working, unless said Basset Hound could push the Button on the router to pair it!

5 out of 5 eggsPower Comes in Small Packages

Pros: this device came with 3 main things, the device, the power cord, and the coolest part yet, AN ETHERNET CORD (rj45) figuring it out was quick and easy and the tech support folks were incredible.

Cons: i have yet to find one for this device

Other Thoughts: just a heads up, if you have a rent to own computer, with all the bloatware they put on them, it made it near impossible to configure the device. However once i got it set up i could unplug it and set it back up anywhere i needed to.
