3.0 out of 5 stars Works for me, but instructions are bad., 8 July 2013

This review is from: Duronic IR815 Wireless-N Wifi Repeater Access point Amplifier / Wifi range extender 802.11n/b/g - More range for your network
I bought a very similar item (in white) to the one described here. It claimed to have the latest firmware revision 1.31.

I set it up like this without using the supplied Ethernet cable:

"Plug in repeater to the power supply.

The lights (all four I think) flash a bit. Then it settles down with "Power" lit and "Wireless" flashing.

On my computer, select "WiFi-Repeater" from list of available WiFi networks (instead of my usual one)
In a web browser, go to web page 192.168.10.1
Sign in as user: admin, password: admin
The browser displays web page http://192.168.10.1/home.asp

Click on "Setup Wizard"
Click on "Wireless Repeater Mode(Station)"
Click on "Next"
Click on "Select" button for my usual WiFi network (SSID)
Click on "Save and Reboot"
The repeater reboots, with "wait x seconds" message in browser window; it disconnects my computer from "WiFi-Repeater" SSID;
then the browser says it can't connect to 192.168.10.1

Then it auto-re-connects to my usual WiFi network. (says "WiFi-Repeater" and "WiFi-Repeater1" are also available.)

I unplugged the device and plugged it in again upstairs. Just my usual WiFi network and "WiFi-Repeater1" available. The latter appears to be the repeater, so you can choose whichever network seems to provide the stronger signal.
"

It would be nice if I could rename the repeater SSID. I actually get a better signal from the repeater than I do from my base station even if I am nearer the latter. Only just started today, so haven't run into any problems needing to restart (i.e. un-plug and plug in again) the repeater.
