    I have had mine for a month or two. The initial setup was no problem, but I had difficulty in maintaining a wireless connection. After returning two of them for exchanges at Global Cache they were quite willing to replace them, the technician and I realized that my router was disconnecting the unit. After a reduction in baud rate, which basically returned the router to B/G Mode I guessconnection has not been a problem. I would agree that placement of the remote I.E.,WF2IR 'IR learning port'is critical and that sometimes the remote will have to be turned upside down for commands to be recognized. Not noted by others is the fact that the PC will make a ding when command learned, which is a help in recognizing capture. Works very well, as far as commands received.

    First let me say that the product itself is solid and functional. Unfortunately, when I first ordered the WF2IR they shipped the wrong model (WF2IP) so I had to return it and wait... the correct model finally showed up about a month and a half after the original order, and I got to work.
    As others have noted, the IR receiver on the unit (for learning IR signals) is ridiculously small and difficult to access. I also completed the set-up of the device, and after saving a few IR signals, tried to test the outgoing IR from the blaster. Nothing. I will continue some research to make sure I'm doing evereything correctly, but right now I can't get the unit to transmit a single IR signal.
    Also, Smarthome would do themselves a huge favor if they developed some simple android/apple applications for control of the WF2IR once it's linked to your network.

    Excellent product, easy to setup and very stable and responsive. Installs in a couple of minutes, good DIY guides on manufacturer's web site. Nice support, too... would be great if they take this little gadget beyond its current limits.

    The wireless Itach is probably as good a device for controlling components as the wired version. However, it's Achilles heel is that operates using the outmoded B network protocol at 11Mbps. In my case, I would have had to degrade my network performance to be able to communicate with it. As a result, I returned it for the ethernet version which works flawlessly.
