Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
I was pointed to this to use it as a Wifi client- my desk top is in a place without a cable. I plug this into the ethernet port and get power from a USB port (or the supplied main-USB converter) and configured it as a client. Going in 5 mins!
Cons:
Yeah, i did have to guess my way around- it is in Chinese, but the web page names are english and the paperwork that came with it had examples so I could find my way around.
Other:
This can be upgraded using TFTP, but I can't figure out how to do this on my Linux PC. I have it going and have never gone back to it. Working all day every day for over 3 months now.
Bottomline:
I am just about to buy another, so I can experiment with it! Other people are buying the 703 I think and using it as a USB dongle 3g-wifi access point. But this makes a great AP or client and I think bridge. No need for plug pack in the wall0 USB powered. Buy a couple and have a play.
