Router Router mode functions as a typical router, connecting to the internet provided by your ISP and broadcasting a wireless signal, to create your own network.
Access Point The Mini Router can create a wireless connection from a wired source in Access Point mode. If only an ethernet port or ethernet cable is available, the router can connect to the wired connection and broadcast a wireless network that all your devices can connect to.
Bridge In Bridge mode, the Mini Router can connect to an existing wireless network and rebroadcast it under a new name; useful for organizing different users of your network into separate connections.
Client In Client mode, the Mini Router connects to a device such as a Smart TV or video game console using an ethernet cable and then can be used as a wireless adapter, enabling the connected device to connect to the internet wirelessly.

I needed a wifi repeater to extend the wifi in my house. This multifunction router/repeater/access point/WISP has performed wonderfully after some initial issues setting it up. I have the router set up 20 feet from my computer with two walls in between and I receive a good signal. I have only tried to use the repeater and WISP functions, so I cannot speak to the other functions. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 due to the minimal instructions included with the router and issues I had setting up the repeater function. Even given the issues I had with the repeater function, I still think this has great value, and I would recommend it to anyone needing an inexpensive wifi extender.
I've included step-by-step instructions below on how I set up the router to extend my wifi. I could not get the repeater function to work properly following the provided instructions, so I ended up using the wireless ISP (WISP) function to extend my wifi.
My WiFi had several dark areas in the house where it couldn't reach. The setup instructions that come with the unit are a little bit daunting as it confused me just looking at all these choices. My initial thought was that I'd never figure it out.
I have Ethernet receptacles in rooms without WiFi. They are connected to my router. They are hardwired through the walls and a cable plugs them into to my router. I plugged in the Wireless N device and connected the Ethernet cable. Using my wireless device I connected to http://192.168.10.253/ and used the provided username and password of admin. I clicked on the Wireless Basic Settings and it shows the SSID to be Wireless-N and encryption was disabled. So I enabled encryption WEP and entered my WEP key and click apply. Your WEP key can be normally found on the bottom of most routers. By default the encryption is disabled. The WIFI became live the moment I was connected using my wireless device but I prefer the WEP encryption to...
Short story: I gave this product four stars because it fills the purpose for which I bought it: to expand my wireless network to my back patio. When connected to this device, my computer browses the Internet as quickly as if I were plugged directly into my cable modem.
This would easily be a five-star product if only they had designed a better user interface. The product comes with two interfaces: a Windows 8 like tile interface, and an advanced text interface. To get the device to work as a repeater of my existing network, I had to use both interfaces.
Documentation is sparse, and covers only the tile interface. I followed the instructions designed to set up the device as a repeater. It quickly found my wireless network, along with a few others. I selected mine, thinking that this was going to be much easier than I anticipated. However, the interface refused to accept my passphrase.
After multiple tries and multiple factory resets, I finally got it...
