Looking in Amazon, I chose a TeckNet® 300Mbps Multi-function Mini Wireless-N Repeater/Router/AP with WPS, 5 working mode: Wireless Router, Repeater, AP, Client and Bridge.
Reasons being; It would mount direct in a 13A socket (I do not want a desk/wall mount with separate PSU). It looked neat, Sensible price.
I would have preferred it to include 5G - I mistakenly thought that N was 5GHz ooops
Anyway, it had to go back. When setting up as per the user manual, my netbook could access ok with wifi, but could not set to AP mode. Could set to AP if using a CAT5 connection, but then could not get the netbook to access when WPA2 enabled. (My netbook can access my Draytek Vigor 2920 router when wifi is switch on)
So I'm looking for a recommendation for an AP which will connect to my existing wired LAN via CAT5 (I do not want a wireless repeater - which would also hog another channel) Will mount in a 13A socket and Ideally also has 5GHz.
Amazon do a:-
HooToo® HT-WR04 Dual Band 2.4GHz & 5GHz Wireless N Signal Repeater and Range Extender, (300 Mbps 802.11 b/g/n Access Point / Repeater with WPS Button)
Anyone any experience? Or any other device I should look at?
