Connected power and attempted to connect via wireless. Connected first time, then went to setup and choose English. Then it asked for time zone, selected America/Los Angeles, it gave me an error and would not go any further. After numerous attempts disconnecting power, reset, etc., it would hang at the English selection and then could not connect at all. Will be returning as the GL-inet web site has no helpful information.
UPDATE: Contacted GL-inet support via email. (Note, when you go to their WEB page it will be Chinese. Look in the upper right corner and see two small flags, click on the USA flag and you will get English.) Got a very prompt response and directions on how to recover.

I've bought at least ten of these units so far. They're an out-of-the-box "super" version of the popular hacked WRT703 travel routers, with both WAN and LAN Ethernet ports, 64M of RAM, and either 8M or 16M of local flash. What I like about them best is that they run the open-source OpenWRT router firmware by default. This lets me use them as wireless bridges, repeaters, routers, or just about anything I want, with simple configuration. I have a number of these right now acting as wired-to-wireless bridges for security cameras.
Setting it up can be confusing since most information I could find online were in Chinese. Once I set it up, I had fun playing with it. For the price of the gadget, it was quite useful. However, portable size of the device gets a bit useless as it needs to be set up each time. I had fun with it for a couple of weeks before it stopped working. It is made poorly so I assumed I must have damaged the construction of somehow as I pulled out the plug.
It was a fun $15 toy for few weeks.
