excellent multi-functional router/WifAP – RB-1602 Wireless 3-in-1 Pocket N+ Broadband Router Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Small and practical multi function router / ap / wifi. Can handle both LAN and wifi connection. Can be used as regular wifi access point but above all can act as wifi bridge and/or repeater also with cloning mac address feature (sometimes really useful) Easy to manage and configure, practical with "one button" setup function
Cons:
Original language and manual are in chinese, but here: http://www.sapido.com.tw/EN/productrb1602f.htm you can find both manual and latest firmware in english. It has US wall charger but can be substituted by a generic usb wall charger of 1000mA (I use an old one taken from a broken mobile)
Other:
It's a bit expansive but it's a very good product. Believe me this is one of the best product bought on dealextreme. Needs usb 1A wall charger
Bottomline:
default IP on router mode is 192.168.1.1, while is 192.168.1.254 on ap / wifi repeater I use in bridge mode and it serves all my stuffs (wii, mobile devices, laptop, etc...) by repeating the signal caught outside my house from a friend's router
