Product Description

Wireless 802.11n Range Extender/Access Point

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.

Universal Repeater Mode

The Universal Repeater Mode lets this Range Extender/Access Point extend the coverage and signal strength for the current wireless environment. This standardized function is compatible with other wireless APs and Routers. Users can use this feature to build up a large wireless network in a huge space like airports, hotels and schools…etc.

Robust Wireless LAN Security (WPA, WPA2 support)

Except for the basic security control by using ESSID and 64/128 bit 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.

Multi-languages Setup Wizard

An unique Multi-languages Setup Wizard is provided in the bundled CD. You only need to make sure the access point is properly connected to the network without specifying your PC’s IP address before starting the configuration. The EZmax Wizard will detect your Range Extender/Access Point automatically and guide you to follow a few simple steps to complete the settings within minutes.

Web Configuration

The EW-7228APn allows you to configure this Range Extender/Access Point through the friendly Web user interface with a browser.

Support Green WLAN

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.

*The result may be varied in different networking environment

4.0 out of 5 stars Great item - needs better instructions! 27 May 2011
By amc431
Style Name:N150 5 port
I ordered this to extend the range of a BT home hub 3 (due to a large brick chimney in the centre of the house reception is patchy). I think of myself as fairly capable but not a technical wizard so I was a bit dubious about whether I would be able to get this working, having read a number of online comments offering help on setting it up as a repeater. I agree the instructions included with the item (hard copy and on cd) are pants if you just want a repeater - after a day or so messing about I came across a much more useful set from Edimax online. Here's the address for the benefit of anyone else trying to do the same:

[...]

I had a small amount of experimentation with the security settings to do but it's now up and running very well with good results. If Edimax had just given me these instructions in the first place I would give the 7228AN 5*, but have knocked one off for the installation time taken. Otherwise great value for money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great repeater, but sensitive to interference 19 April 2010
Style Name:N300 Mimo
This wireless range extender is great at what it's supposed to do (even though the manual isn't very clear - see other reviews for detailed instructions), but I've held off on giving a review until I've found the source of the problems I've been having with it. So here it is: this device works great, but is *extremely sensitive to signals from surrounding electronic devices*. In my case I originally placed the device next to computer screens, behind a PC and next to a sound speaker and there were regular, inexplicable problems with the device not providing a complete signal (DHCP requests and/or answers were not passed). The solution was to place the wireless extender further away from any sources of interference - 1.5m seemed enough. After that, the device has been working great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edimax EW-7416APN Wireless AP & Range Extender 17 Jan 2010
Style Name:N300 Mimo|Verified Purchase
Purchased this as a Range Extender for a friend after reading amazon reviews.They had a Belkin Router but Belkins's own Extender is not Vista Compatible.
The Edimax is cheap,compact,inobtrusive and both VISTA & XP Compatible.Also MAC according to another reviewer.I tried all the various ways of setting it up according to the various reviews-see Steves's ,Iain etc.

I have set out what I feel is the easiest step by step guide to use it as a Range Extender:
1.Access your own router (see your manual or CD and type in to address bar on Internet Explorer e.g. 192.168.2.1 )and write down the IP Address of your Router (same as what you used to access it).Also write down subnet mask e.g 255.255.255.0 and the DHCP Range e,g. 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.100 ).Also channel number.

2. Go to the Edimax website -choose support-enter 7416APN and download the Set Up Wizard File -it works for Vista and XP.

3. See the Edimax manaul on the CD to connect the Edimax.Go to show connections or network connections.Right click on the LAN Port and change the TCP/IP properties as on the edimax instructions to 192.168.2.2.

3. In the folder where you downloaded the Set up wizard compressed zip -click on the file.Then click set up wizard,then click English,then click Wizard,then click o AP Main.It will ask you to extract or Run.Choose Run.

4.The Edimax Wizard screen will open.
5. Connect the Edimax to your PC via the LAN Port-DO NOT CONNECT IT TO THE ROUTER
6. The wizard will detect your Edimax.
7. Follow step by step instructions.It will find your existing network and router.
8.Enter IP address for the Edimax on same string but outside the range of your router -if range say is 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.100 the say choose 192.168.2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product! 23 Sep 2009
By Steve
Style Name:N300 Mimo|Verified Purchase
We live in a concrete-framed house with the main wireless router upstairs. The steel mesh in the floors severely attenuates the signal and getting a connection downstairs used to be very unreliable. I installed this EdiMax access point in its universal repeater mode and put it downstairs on top of a cupboard directly below the router. It receives the signal from the router (through the floor) and then re-broadcasts it to the computers downstairs with no wiring required (apart from plugging the mains adapter into a nearby socket). Setting it up in this mode was not entirely straightforward, but the resulting signal strength is excellent and we now have full-strength access from anywhere in the house.

The booklet did not include instructions for repeater mode, but the PDF manual on the CD is fairly comprehensive, although it doesn't have step-by-step instructions for repeater mode. They might take a bit of figuring out if you're not familiar with IP addresses, subnets, etc., so here's what I did:

1. Change your computer's IP address so you are on the same subnet as the access point, then log in to it (detailed instructions are provided for this part). Don't forget to make a note of the previous settings so that you can set it back again afterwards.

2. In Basic Settings, select Universal Repeater mode, set your MAIN ESSID to something meaningful (like "EdiMax Repeater"), then click "Select Site Survey" to locate your main router's signal.

3. Select your main router (there may be neighbouring routers listed too) and click "Connection". Now click "Apply" to save the settings.

4. Go into System Utility and change the IP address of the access point (see * below) to match you main network.
