The catch, there are two brick walls in the way.
It sets up fine, and spot checks on the signal strength show that all seems OK.
The problem arises when streaming video, (BBC iPlayer), over the link, which results in a very choppy, and pixelated video stream, which sometimes pauses to buffer for a few seconds.
Perhaps I am expecting too much from the tech.
I bought this so I didn't have to drill holes in the walls and route cable, but it seems I'll have to.
If your application has no walls, or is just for web browsing, and casual use, then this may do the job for you.
Think again if you live in a typical house with walls, and want to stream video or do some gaming over the link.
With the 4-port Ethernet hub you can add "hard wired" devices and also add a "hot spot" to your WiFi network.
OK, there are fast WiFi extenders available but at the price an absolute bargain.
The only drawback I have seen is; You have to set up your wireless devices (if you move them around) to log on automatically to both the 'origonal Hub' and exteded Hub named 'origonal Hub_EXT'. For obvious reasons, the extender must be within wireless range of your origonal Hub. This means that on returning to your house/office your wireless device can log on to either depending on which 'zone' you enter into first. Because both 'zones' overlap, this leads to the wireless device not logging off the weaker and onto the stronger signal as you move zones. In my case it affects mainly Mobile Phones and the occasional laptop.
It is only a VERY MINOR drawback which requires a simple manual overide but one that you should be aware of. It may be there is a way of setting the devices up to counteract this, possibly someone cleverer than me knows how.
In summary, the product works very well. I have only experienced a drop of signal once and that was restored in less than 2 minutes by simply switching the unit off and on again. The Instructions are not the clearest, so reading them in conjunction with the reviews is invaluable.
