The Edimax is known to give lots of problems, there have been a number of threads about it.


I spent some time trying to sort it out with another forum user, and never got it to work reliably. In the end they got a TP-Link WA701ND instead.


If you do manage to get it to work, I would be interested to know how, just in case anyone else buys one.


There is a guide to extending wireless on this link.
