Installing the device in AP mode is largely a non affair. Plug and play, power up; and 60 seconds later you are done. The SSID/Password on the bottom of the device is all you need to create a secure, wireless link to whatever your network connection is. Installation in router mode works largely the same; however some ISP’s will require you to spoof an IP address of whatever router you had previously installed. This is configureable through the web based management console.
I had read somewhere that installing this device in repeater mode was a real pain. You have to hook up an ethernet, set it up, disconnect, reconnect it to an ethernet jack and then attempt connecting wirelessly. If you are reading this and scratching your head, so did I. Setup was the same as any device you would set up in a bridge or repeating mode. You need to connect to it via IP, access the management console, configure your network specifics and go. Oh, and by the way it has a default IP on the wifi side (as do most routers) 192.168.0.254. If you never bother connecting it to an ethernet connection, you can wirelessly access the management console with your smart phone. This is how I performed ALL configuration.
If you are a novice user, plug and play will likely work for you out of the box – seriously, You’ll be fine. If you are the type of person who builds your own PC’s, you will love the configure ability. Setting it up via your phone is a nice parlor trick as well.
