My wireless rouetr is in the basement with limited coverage for the 2nd floor and the patio. So my aim was to expand my wireless network coverage. ASUS WL-330gE proved best value and has several functions one of which is to expand the wireless network (labeled as Repeater mode). Now I have an excellent coverage all over my property. The following are the steps I did to set it up: 1. Power on your WL-330gE through the attached USB power cord. 2. Connect the WL-330gE to your laptop through an Ethernet (RJ45) cable. 3. Disconnect your computer from internet/rouetr. (Wireless off or unplug Ethernet cable) 4. Open the Internet browser in your computer and type in in the address box. Type admin for ID and admin for password. 5. Select Repeater tab 6. From the available wireless devices select yours enter your password and connect. 7. Click on the advanced setting at the lower left corner and select IP config then select Yes for get IP Automatically. 8. Click apply then logout. 9. Disconnect your ASUS from the computer. Find a central location in your property and connect the device to the power outlet. You do not need to connect it to the net work or a computer
