These are frequently used in professional networking installations, and can be used for both sending and receiving Wi-Fi signals. RVers and cruisers will often find this is the equipment used by the campground/marina as their distributed access points.
They are designed more for IT managers than consumers to be used as a component in a Wi-Fi network, so for those not comfortable with networking protocols this may not be an ideal choice.
Otherwise, these are highly regarded devices and can be used for receiving Wi-Fi from longer ranges - but you will need to configure them to a router.

Testing Status: We have purchased one of these units, and utilize it when creating our 'mobile Wi-Fi network' for testing long range gear against. We have used prior versions of this product in our Wi-Fi signal enhancing solution as well. It's a solid solution, if you don't need customer support and are comfortable with system configuration.
