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.




Manufacturer's Description

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.

please afvice

Sorry for sounding thick but will this connect to my existing wireless router (wirelessly) and then allow me to connect a Sony bluray player via ethernet to it? I know I could do this via powerline adapters but this is easier and cheaper than buying a pair of adapters and if you want to make the Sony Bluray wireless you have to buy an expensive dongle so I'm hoping this would work.

No it isn't it's an N device, they probably call it 150 rather than 300 because it has to recieve and broadcast at the same time which likely halves the bandwidth.

It's fine, ditto it's an N device, and no slower than standing next to the Sky broadband router itself

It isn't slow but N is 150 max. N + A is 300MBPS. You probably wouldn't realistically get this anyway and only useful if you have gigabit ethernets and are doing huge file transfers.

Anyway HOT, i will order for my Media centre and to ethernet my TV so i don't have to pay £60 for a dongle......and i only have a G network anyway!

Still waiting for Virgin to release the new firmware for the so called super hub to enable bridge mode.

However, this is a 150Mbps device - which is 1,000,000,000 times faster.

bought a Netgear MP101 off ebay last week - this should allow me to use it!
#15
I can't see it at this price. Has it changed?
#16
would this work with a sky router
banned#17
Looks pretty good, Wireless is still poor compared to a cable though imo..
#18
Price has gone up. I bought one of these last week from Scan: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001HW0JVU/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

It was on offer, however I paid more than the current Amazon price. Works a dream though.

£24.99 from http://www.base.com with free delivery if you buy it directly from them rather than via Amazon Marketplace - http://www.base.com/buy/product/edimax-ew-7228apn-150mbps-range-extender-built-in-5-port-switch/dgc-ew-7228apn.htm

Given Amazon's yo-yo'ing prices I might just hang on a day or two and grab it when it goes back down.

Please can anyone tell me if l could use this connect my iPad to the net when my hotel only has a wired access point. So l plug the hotel ethanet cable in to this, can l connect my iPad wifi to the Internet. L know l could use airport express but that's bloody expensive.

Recently bought 'TP-Link TL-PA101 Starter Kit 85Mbps Powerline Ethernet AdapterTwin Pack' from Amazon to use with a Sony Blue Ray Player. Unfortunately they were faulty, as were the replacement pair. Would this item be a better or faster option than the plugs? Cheers for any help.
