Works with BT Home Hub 3

Slight limitation with not working with WPA2, but as I can use WPA with home hub 3 then it b is fine. Setup was straightforward (checked online before buying if compatible with home hub) and have had no problems since. Even got wii online without too many problems. Overall very pleased as it brings better signal to front of the house

Having read the other reviews, and being of an age that says "Technology Passed me by a long time ago", I decided to have a go. Living in a very old house with 2 foot thick stone walls, my BT home hub doesn't get very far and so I desperately needed to increase its range for my internet radio, amongst other things.
When it arrived I switched on the unit and managed to find it after 5 mins of searching, tried the network settings in the control panel, but no! Finally clicked on the network icon at the bottom right of the screen and there it was so hit connect.
Now went to the setup wizard on the CD and it found it and said enter your user name and password, which is shown on the bottom of the unit, so duly entered it and got told it was incorrect! (10 times).
Now giving up on it so BT can have it back, but as a final idea went on to Edimax web and there is the answer. Don't try and set it up wirelessly, you must hard wire it to your computer, and away it goes.
Now working fantastic!

Edimax Wilreless-N Range Ext. Version2

Reading these reviews I was almost ready to give up on Edimax, but since these reviews are almost one year old I wouldn't disregard this brand just yet. I also have a HomeHub2 and yes it is WPA2 encrypted, which made it useless if you used Edimax first version(wireless-N Range Extender EW-7416APn), since for it to function properly you'd have to change to WEP encryption on your HomeHub2. A new Edimax Version2 is out and it caters for the issue that (Peter Smith) has mentioned. This Version2 supports WPA and WPA2. You can make your decision by going to their uk website: http://www.edimax.co.uk/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=307&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=5

This device is actually one of the easiest on the market to set up. The problem is that BT should not be promoting it as suitable for connecting to the HomeHub 2, since their equipment is WPA2 encrypted. I contacted Edimax, who were helpful. The range extender in universal repeater mode, only operates with BT equipment in WEP encryption. Since everything else on my home network is WPA2 encrypted with the HomeHub, I would have to change the whole network to WEP to get this to function.
It is time that this was sorted out. The HomeHub is good but does not link with any other universal repeaters. I have tried Belkin and PheeNet devices and encountered the same problem. Please BT, get a unversal repeater that will simply plug and play. There is a real market out there amongst people living in older homes with thicker walls, who struggle with wireless connections.

I spent a few hours unsuccessfully trying to get it to talk to my BT HomeHub2. I even had the BT Broadband guy try, unsuccessfully. Don't waste your money and time on this piece of junk.
