I went through every support option possible, with the Linksys support team and they ended up giving me a refund as it doesn't work and there is no firmware fix possible.

It works fine as a 2.4Ghz device, the interface etc is fine, fairly intuitive etc and not bad to use.

Over all I got decent range (around 25 Meters through multiple walls and wall types) and would be happy with it if it worked on 5Ghz.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The WAP300N can be configured in several ways:

* Access Point (default)
* Wireless Media Connector
* Wireless Range Extender
* Wireless Bridge

I'm not going to go through them all here. I chose Wireless Range Extender, so that I could pick up a fairly weak wireless signal near a non-wireless TV and attach the TV to the WAP300N with an Ethernet cable. I wanted to extend the reach of my wi-fi network at the same time.

In case it helps anyone, here's what worked for me:

* Cable the unit to an Ethernet port on your PC and power it on
* Run setup.exe from the CD and follow the steps - choose an admin password, then wireless band (2.4GHz for most people), network name (their term for SSID) and network password (i.e. WPA2 key). I'd recommend using the same ssid and network key as those of your router.
* Use a browser to access the device at 10.100.1.1 (type that in your browser address bar and hit Enter)
* Under the Setup tab, select Operation Mode and choose Wireless Range Extender, then Save Settings which will cause a reboot
* Under the Wireless tab, select Wireless Network Site Survey and your router should be detected
* Select your router and click Connect
* Type your router's security key, click Connect again and wait for connection to complete.

That's it. Job done.

You will no longer see the WAP300N at 10.100.1.1 because it's become a client of your router. If you want to get back into the WAP300N interface, you'll need to find its IP address in your router's DHCP client list. Alternatively, reset the WAP300N (press the button on the base for 5 seconds) and start from scratch.

I decided to opt for the Linksys brand after having a terrible experience with a Netgear Wireless-N Access Point WN802T-200. Basically I updated the firmware on it (on Netgear Support's recommendations) and it bricked. Their support was terrible and they wouldn't help me out by sending a replacement despite my complaints. It was a few year old so I couldn't be bothered to fight anymore and I cut my losses. I'll NEVER deal with Netgear products again and would never recommend them. Anyway, back to this Access Point... Prior to the Netgear crap described above, I'd owned a reliable Linksys WAP54G. This device so far has been great. I've had to send one back due to a faulty plug but other than that it's been great. Coverage in my house and garden is spot on, and my house is a decent size. Speeds are great. My only criticism is that the ethernet port on the access point is only 100mb/s where it should be 1000mb/s.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Set-up was quite easy; no need to worry about using the included CD (which I doubt would have been helpful anyway, as I use Linux, not Windows).

I plugged the access point in to my laptop via Ethernet; it assigned my laptop the IP 10.100.1.100, and the access point itself was 10.100.1.1 (so the admin interface was accessible at http://10.100.1.1/ in a browser). The default username and password are both "admin".

I selected "Manual" for "Configuration View" to see the full range of settings.

Configuring it was easy; it supports all the security modes you'd expect - WPA/WPA2/WPA mixed Personal, WPA/WPA2/mixed Enterprise mode (using a RADIUS server), WEP, RADIUs or none.

After changing any settings the device reboots, which can be a little tedious - for instance, I had to configure the frequency, channel and channel widths etc first, then clicking save rebooted the device before I could then set up the security settings (resulting in another reboot) - I'd rather be able to set everything up in one go, but it's no big deal.

I immediately disabled WPS (Wifi Protected Setup), due to some security problems with WPS I'd rather not deal with.

The firmware installed on the unit I reviewed was 1.00.00, which, according to the Linksys website, is the most current version available.

A couple of minor drawbacks to be aware of:

- Although the device is dual-band (it can use the 2.4Ghz range, which is compatible with nearly all wifi equipment, as well as the 5GHz band, which is less congested but supported by less devices), it cannot do both at the same time.

Not yet tried anything other than range extender mode. Some strange behaviours though. If the main router is powered down, it loses its WPS connectivity and this needs to be rest - simple enough to reset but annoying. Another (cheaper) Huawei device remembers it.
