Worked straight out of the box
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 24/11/2011
The devices are quite small and feel well constructed.
When I got them, I plugged then in to the mains and Ethernet and they worked right away giving much better throughput than my wifi at the far side of the house.
The only minor quibble was that the configuration software (needed if you want to change defaults) doesn't run under Linux and fails to find the devices when ran under VirtualBox in a NAT configuration so needed a little fiddling to work for me.
- Ease of use
- Value for money
