I bought one of these for my dad as he couldn't use his Ipad and Laptop upstairs.
It works really well, is a cheaper and probably easier option to the Powerline adapter.
Once set up it can even be switched off and on without having to set it up again.
Acting as a bridge between the wired Ethernet and the 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN, this wireless LAN range extender/access point can let your wireless LAN client stations access both the wired and the wireless network nodes.Except for the basic security control by using ESSID and 64/128 bits key length WEP encryption, the EW-7228APn also supports the advanced security features, like MAC access control, IEEE 802.1x authentication, TKIP, AES and hide ESSID. It provides a total solution for you building up a secure wireless LAN network environment that can prevent from all kinds of hacker intrusion. The EW-7228APn allows you to configure this range extender/access point through the friendly web user interface with a browser.The EW-7228APn has adapted a clever protocol in smart transmission power control. When the wireless is idle, the range extender/access point smartly adjusts transmission output by distance and CPU offload to reduce power consumption 26%-39% comparing the power consumption under data is transmitted.
