March 27, 2014USING SUCCESSFULLY
HAD PROBLEM WITH WIRELESS COVERAGE IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE. SET UP SATECHI MINI ROUTER AS A REPEATER AND IT IS WORKING GREAT. HAVEN' T USED IT LONG ENOUGH TO COMMENT ON DURABILITY, BUT I'M HAPPY NOW.
March 7, 2014The repeater works and is easy to install and it is not expensive.
It's about time that computer related electronics manufactures make electronic components that actually plug in and play with euu driven configuration. I love your stuff. I have already recommended your company to my friends. This repeater I bought from you for $40 dollars replaced one I bought from Fry's for $160.00 and I had to call tech support to help me get it programmed. I watched your video and installed my new repeater in less that 15 minutes. I am plannintg to buy more repeaters and other equipment form you guys. Thanks. I just hope it lasts longer than a year. I only got 15 months out of the Fry's equipment. And the warrenty was convenientely over at 12 months.

July 2, 2013Great Way to Extend Your Network
My house is long and I was looking for a way to extend my current wireless network. My current wireless access point did not allow good connectivity throughout my house. I have moved it all over and could never find a good place to service the entire house. The Satechi Wireless Min Router solved my problem. I set up the mini router as a repeater. It can be set up as a router, repeater, access point, bridge or client. The product description adequately explains what each mode does if you're not sure what mode you want. A YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1J07ZGN9QY) also walks you through any questions you might have. After you plug it in, it will appear as a wireless network called Satechi. After you enter the IP 192.168.10.253 and the user name and password (admin for both) you will access the configuration page. I clicked on Wizard and selected Repeater as the mode I needed. It then scans local networks and I saw the SSID of my current wireless network. I selected it and entered my password and clicked Save and Reboot. Here's where I ran into a bit of a problem, or so I thought. I saw a progress bar that told me not to disconnect the router, but nothing appeared to be happening. I thought I did something wrong. I finally figured out that I was no longer connected to the Satechi network, but my current one. This is why the configuration page would no longer work. The manual was unclear as to this point. So I wanted to see if the minirouter was actually extending my network. I used the Mac software iStumbler to verify my new connection and was able to see that the minirouter was seen and extending my network. I now had coverage in my whole house! One other bit of information that was not present in the manual, but I was able to find on the Satechi website was the reset procedure for the router. (The manual says to hold the reset button down for 8-10 seconds, but that didn't work) Here is the info from the website "You can reset your wireless router, by holding down reset button 3 seconds, and let it go, than hold again until only power light is present ( This could take 8 to 10 seconds) . Than unplug wireless router and plugged back in. This should reset it." I can confirm that this procedure works. The router is small (smaller than a deck of playing cards) and comes with a short piece of Ethernet cable. Overall, this is a great little router at a great asking price.

July 1, 2013Ease of install and super fast connectivity
So I got this first for future use in a hotel. But I received it and put it in my garage for use as a repeater. It was so easy, I used an iPhone to set this up as a repeater!! I plan on getting another one asap!!! The speeds this gives is super fast and the range is VERY LONG!!! Actually better than high dollar outer!!!
June 1, 2013Excellent value
Super easy to set up. just follow the instructions and you can't go wrong. I use it as a repeater between floors and another one as a client for a desktop that does not have Wifi. I am in the IT business and have set up dozens of home networks, as well as reconfigured my extensive network at home multiple times. At the new house I was ready to order data cabling to wire all the rooms, I really don't think I need it. The through put is sufficient for streaming HD video, having 8 wifi devices connected, even with the main router in the basement, the second floor PC works just fine. Now that I put a repeated on the first floor, I have full bars anywhere in the house. For 39 dollars, I say you can't go wrong with this solution.
